A “boom in domestic energy production”??? More like a “pop” with Obama, Chu, and Salazar doing all they can to stop it.
I was thinking I should have added a comment about the hyper-promotion of a relatively small increase. We are going to continue to see increases, and quite a bit with the right leaders, but a boom? We are not there, yet.
Plus it is not Mullen's job to speculate on our energy future. It is his job to run the Navy and make sure we are combat ready if necessary.
A hard enough task to accomplish, I might add, when his priorities seem to be making the venerable institution friendly to fudge-packers.
