First Read Shows Kerry Was Right Again

From First Read:

During the 2004 presidential campaign, when average gas prices had soared above $2 a barrel, Sen. John Kerry (D) demanded that the Administration stop filling the SPR to increase the oil supply. But the Administration disagreed, arguing that the reserve is national security asset and that it would continue to fill it, absent a severe supply interruption. But in announcing yesterday that he wanted to temporarily suspend filling the SPR, Bush said, “Our strategic reserve is sufficiently large enough to guard against any major supply disruption over the next few months.”
