Elect Obama, to repair America’s international reputation

From Canada’s National Post:

Yesterday, Mr. Obama vowed to break America's addiction to "dirty, dwindling and dangerously expensive" oil if elected U. S. president -- and he said one of his first targets may well be imports from Canada's oil sands. A senior advisor to Obama's campaign said it's an "open question" whether Alberta's oil sands fit with Obama's vision for shifting the U. S. dramatically away from carbon-intensive fuels.
Earlier in the story:

While the aim is undoubtedly to pander to the electorate in an election year charged with oil and climate-change debate, what they are stoking is an increasingly angry Canadian energy industry that is seriously looking at non-U. S. markets for its oil.
Here’s the ending:

It's not the first time the Canadian sector has pondered offshore oil routes. It's time to take them seriously.
Somebody please tell Obama: enough with the unilateral foreign energy policy.
