    Weak growth. Monster debt. Which to tackle first?
    Aug 25 2011 - As a forecast by the Congressional Budget Office shows, both threats to the economy linger. The good news is that the solution doesn't need to be either-or.

    If we're lucky, things will suck for only a decade.

    If we were to open the shale-oil-nuclear power-clean coal
    explore-extract-refine-deliver-construct-etc... with-out the threats of higher taxes etc... to go with it we could be back to the days of 5% UE with very small deficits as we had in 2007

    Thats what it will take
    Rick Perry is perfect

    How would we pay for opening all of that?
    And if we did full tilt who would buy the products?

    you need to think a bit deeper than political rhetoric.
