Movingout, Obama keeps saying that in the debates, but conservatives will never listen...Under Bush they understood, under Reagan they understood...But Obama is always blamed, it's maddening!

I believe I read in the newspaper that we have, or will shortly, pass Saudi Arabia as the largest producer of oil in the world.
Maybe we can help eliminate some of the trade deficit by selling oil and buying all the junky Chinese trinkets we so desire. Reverse the disgrace of buying Manhattan for a handful of beads, you know.
Seriously, though, are we exporting more than we import? Seems that that would be kind of important...
