Sorry but the neocons work for both the left and the right wings of the totalitarian bird of prey.  I think that your error, my friend, is assuming that there is an important difference between the GOP and Democratic Party.

Shale gas?  If the Ukraine is as good a target as the US shale will destroy a huge amount of investment capital.  The simple fact is that regardless of the hype the EURs outside of a few core areas are way too tiny to make shale economic.

I am sorry but all of the evidence suggests that Mitt is just as bad on economics, foreign policy, and constitutional integrity as Obama.  The idea that somehow the GOP is better at containing the growth of government and protecting individual liberty on the fiscal front than the Democrats is a myth that is not supported by any empirical evidence.  If anything Mitt is even more rabid about attacking Iran and getting into foreign conflicts than Obama.  He is waving the red cape at Russia when there is absolutely no reason to engage with the Russian kleptocracy and pushing China into retaliating against the USD and the US capital markets.  At a time when some in the CP are listening to the advocates of Hayek and Mises the GOP is squarely in the Keynesian camp and insisting that a bigger government run by Republicans is the solution to our current problems.
