Oil, Science, and an Opportunity Missed

From DailyKos:
The energy problem is, at its core, a scientific and engineering problem. And America knows how to solve scientific and engineering problems better than any country in history. We still have the talent, we still have the resources, we still have the spirit, just as we did in WW2 or the space race. If anything, we have more. What we lack is leadership.

This is an interesting take on what has happened in the past five years. Like the original post suggests, would this not have been a better response to terrorism than telling people to go shopping?
