Larry Kudlow Thrusts His Opinion Forward in the NRO

Larry Kudlow, in the National Review Online, grows excited at new possibilities for drilling deep (for oil). Stocks are "rising," the dollar is "strengthening" and "punishing" that naughty gold. Meanwhile Wall Street is happy about the "big expansion." "President Bush unleashed" the bill to "drill, drill, drill" for oil, "strengthening the dollar, pushing down gold, and driving up share prices."

But there's an impediment to President Bush's muscular plan to save the economy; a woman. She would be "a tough road to hoe" but a "discharge petition" might "blow Pelosi out of the water and open the floodgates to Democratic defections in the House." But the Republicans are still in danger of losing the presidential race, Kudlow says. So they should "drill, drill, drill," which "would have the potency of the Reagan tax cuts 28 years ago in the 1980 landslide race."
