Shame on Al for spending his childhood in Washington with his father. Yes, Al Gore is a second-generation politician. George W. Bush is a third-generation politician, but don't worry; he only started in politics a few years ago. I'm glad for G.W. that after decades lost living under his father's shadow, he eventually found something to do.

Gore mis-spoke; technically he didn't co-sponsor it, but he has been a strong supporter of it . Thank goodness with G.W. we won't have a president who mis-spokes.

What Gore said was: "I've been a part of the discussions on the Strategic Petroleum Reserve since the days it was first established." Dates: + 1975 - Congress authorizes the Reserve + Jan. 1977 - Gore sworn in + April 1977 - Gov't acquires site for temporary oil storage + June 1977 - Gore grills oil executives in oversight committee + July 1977 - Gore votes to double Reserve capacity + July 1977 - Oil starts arriving at site + June 1978 - Construction starts on surface storage facilities
So depending on what you mean by "established," you could look at the statement from both sides . Again, with G.W. we'll get a president who knows what words mean. No fuzzy words, mangled syllables or subliminable messages . And when it comes to the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, you couldn't ask for a better candidate. I'll bet the oil companies agree with me . And listen to his penetrating understanding of oil imports:
"It is clear our nation is reliant upon big foreign oil. More and more of our imports come from overseas."

That says it even better. Or "weller", in Bush-speak.
