    2. Dependency on petroleum imports (the continuing absence of a credible energy policy has contributed greatly). In the January-May 2011 timeframe, the trade gap in petroleum products accounted for 45% of the nation's overall trade gap.
    Thats right. But the US is not the only country who must import primary energy. Almost every developed country, like germany, japan or britain must import oil, uranium, gas...

    But the US energy consumption is extremely high!



    Another aspect is china. The trade deficit is huge and it is growing! It is not just a problem with china, it is a problem of a steadily growing productivity and the distribution of wealth.

    federal borrowing in february alone, 233 billion, was greater than the entire deficit, 161B, for fiscal 07

    U.S. sets $223B deficit record - Washington Times

    Deficit for Fiscal 2007 Slides - Real Time Economics - WSJ

    the deficit in 2007 came in at a sweet 1.2% of gdp

    today it tops 10

    Even with the increased deficit spending in the last two years (and FY 2009 was passed and signed by republicans) the GOP is still responsible for the large majority of our national debt

    Really??? That's an astounding opinion.

    Obama's refusal to listen is exactly why he's going to lose in 2012.
