This blog posting at the Bush Institute notes the U.S. Department of Commerce report that the economic recovery was lethargic,  growing at a 2.2% rate.   Unemployment remains high as four million workers are unemployed. Weinstein asserts that, "Policies that encourage rather than retard energy investments are among the keys to achieving 4% growth."
