This chart is from a Power Line article posted today. As you can see, our recovery from the current recession does not quite look like the recoveries from prior recessions.
The article further points out:
“Meanwhile, if you want to see where there is real job growth occurring, forget “green” jobs. Turns out old-fashioned “brown jobs” are where the action is. Nine of the 11 fastest-growing job sectors right now are drilling-related. Forget red and blue states in the next election. The real divide might be between fossil fuels states and the states still trying to break wind for their energy and economy.”
It’s time to drill, baby, drill. The only way that is going to happen is if America votes Republican in 2012.
