Marita, Where have you been???....out of this world?? The GOP has been complaining about not maximizing our energy potential forever and all across the board!! This administration has done EVERYTHING in it's power to throttle back on COAL, NATURAL GAS and OIL and GAS production in the name of clean air and water, with stifling EPA regulations, as if there was a realistic correlation between same. This admin has failed to allow the pipeline, failed to maximize oil exploration and production offshore of numerous states and in fact sells permits allowing other countries to drill inside our limits. It's just another indication that collectively this administration still fails to recognize the first clue as to how to kick this economy into GEAR!

Wally, where have you been? Marita has been addressing these areas with fierce verocity over and over, week after week, in a variety of different ways. Also since the Spring of 2011, Marita has been exposing President Obama's green-energy crony-corruption scandal –– the huge pay-to-play scam, using at least $100 billion of tax dollars from the 2009-stimulus package. I encourage you to go back and read several of her previous columns.

Yep. That's the dems for you. This is what we've got now, and the younger generation is more completely brainwashed into drooling stupidity.
It's going to take many more years long brownouts like in California before the dummy dems wake up to a bit of reality, and even then if all they can do is wail about the new Enron, it will still do no good.
I'm not sure what will cure them, or even curtail their hate filled anti-power generation idiot mindset.
Perhaps a tyrannical move that leaves them with only an organic rice paper stove and a hemp oil lantern would do it.

You got it Nov. 6

The stalemate going on in Washington about the fiscal cliff highlights the two very different economic viewpoints held, not just in Washington, but across America: more government, more taxes; less spending, lower taxes. But there is a third prong that is largely absent from the discussion: growth and creating new wealth—and energy can play a big role, but it, too, has two divergent sides.

To have success, both sides need to feel that they are getting what they want.

Energy should be part of the current fiscal cliff discussions because all recessions since 1973 have been preceded by a spike...
