    AWESOME!!!

    A MOOSHOT effort for America!

    'LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (Reuters) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will lay out policies on Thursday aimed at achieving North American energy independence by 2020 by pursuing a sharp increase in production of oil and natural gas on federal lands and off the U.S. coast.

    Romney is to unveil his plan at a truck and supply business in Hobbs, New Mexico, as he seeks to draw a sharp contrast between his energy policies and those of President Barack Obama and detail in part how he would rekindle job growth in the United States.'

    Well we're already about half way there. With the US producing 6.4 million barrels a day. Importing 2.4 million a day from Canada and about 1 million per day from Mexico. We still need 9 million barrels a day from somewhere. Considering 9 million barrels a day was about the peak of US production, I don't think it can be done without some serious conservation on the US part. Perhaps he should stick with getting us off ME oil instead. Not that any of those things will decrease the price we pay.........
