even a stopped clock is right twice a day

Though I disparage him, even our president is occasionally right. The other day he remained steadfast in his refusal to open the strategic petroleum reserve, even giving the correct reasons for doing so. This made me happy on two counts. One he is actually doing the right thing, and two the resulting failure to reduce gas prices may slightly hurt his reelection chances. I'm OK with the fact many will vote against him for the wrong reasons, knowing already that many will vote for him against their own interests.

Of course the president went on to chastise Congress for not passing his energy plan three years ago which would have lined corporate pockets and diminished environmental protections. Who was on that energy task force anyway?
