Will John McCain turn Tsar Putin’s invasion of Georgia into a drill, drill, drill issue? He should. It will throw Democrats even more on the defensive--especially Sen. Obama whose weak response to Putin’s neo-Soviet actions have already put him way behind the eight ball on Russia.
Nearly two-thirds of Americans (64 percent) support offshore oil drilling, according to a new Rasmussen poll. And 42 percent say offshore oil drilling would have the biggest impact in terms of reducing oil prices. Only 20 percent of Americans now oppose offshore drilling.
The tax-cut effects of lower oil prices are the single-biggest economic story right now. Even with Fannie Mae’s terrible reported earnings, stocks are up 240 points in today’s trading. Why? Because oil is down another $4 to $116.
Yesterday’s Federal Reserve policy statement not only failed to defend King Dollar, it actually shifted on balance to a more dovish position. The FOMC looks like it’s more worried about the economy than it was a month ago and less worried about inflation in the wake of plunging oil prices.
Yesterday’s consumer inflator report was up 4.1 percent over the past year, the biggest rise in 17 years. Core inflation is much lower at 2.3 percent, but still above the Fed’s target. Right now commodity markets are nose-diving across the board. This is a good sign for diminished future inflation risk.
As Sen. John McCain and the GOP leadership nationalize the drill, drill, drill message, the Republican party might conceivably be riding a summer political rally. The question of offshore drilling has suddenly become the biggest political and economic wedge issue of this election.
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has exactly the high energy, political toughness, and conservative reform message that would boost Sen. John McCain’s presidential run if Big Mac were to put her on the ticket. In an interview last evening on CNBC, Palin was very clear on her drill, drill, drill message for Alaska and the rest of the U.S.
What follows below is an unofficial transcript of my interview last night with Senate Republican Whip Jon Kyl of Arizona.
Behind in the polls, Obama's rekindling class warfare against banks, corporations, and rich people, says Larry Kudlow.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry still looks strong for 2016 despite a phony Democratic indictment, says Larry Kudlow.
Many economists are writing off 2% growth as "secular stagnation." To quote JFK, "We can do bettah!," Larry Kudlow and Stephen Moore say.
