Dear President Bush:
John Kerry is a liar or a fool if he thinks that releasing any of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve will do anything appreciable regarding the current gas prices. We have gone over this hundreds of times, so I hope you do not cave in and pursue bad policy because of their demagoguery.
Remember- they do not care about the outcomes of the policies and whether it really solves the problem. They just care if it appears that they are doing something and that will in turn get them votes. You can not out pander them- trust me.
PS- In the debates, please ask John Kerry how he intends to ‘pressure’ OPEC. Will he have to go to the UN to ask permission, first?
*** Update ***
More evidence of Democratic demagoguery flying in the face of reality from Dan Drezner.
