Obama and drilling

Obama is encouraging Brazil to engage in precisely the type of oil drilling that he’s refusing to allow in America, and then promising that America will be a market for that oil.

My question for you:  Why?

Is Obama so anti-American that this is just part of an ongoing effort to destroy her financially?  Or beneath that Leftist exterior, is he an old-fashioned imperialist who would rather see a poor “other” country destroyed by the environmental risks of oil drilling, while his own country remains environmentally clean and pure?  Or is there another reason I haven’t thought of?

For myself, I lean to the first choice.
