    The Washington Post's David Nakamura, today's White House pool reporter, had these odd lines in his last dispatch, just as the president was returning from a speech in Maryland:

    POTUS arrived back at WH at 12:45 pm after uneventful ride. POTUS was greeted in Rose Garden by Bo. POTUS didn't reply when another pooler asked:
    "Does Bo think you should release the Strategic Petroleum Reserve?"

    So a gallon of regular is today costing Americans $3.82. And the question the press has for the president of the United States is whether his dog, Bo, thinks oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve should be released.

    President Obama has previously said there is not a "silver bullet" to drive down gas prices immediately. Though a number of his fellow Democrats, including New York senator Chuck Schumer, believe that President Obama should release the Strategic Petroleum Reserves in order to bring down the cost of gas.

    In follow-up emails, Nakamura said he didn't know which member of the pool asked Obama the silly question, but he did say, "it appeared [O]bama just smiled --as he was in process of petting Bo on the steps going into [W]est [W]ing from [R]ose [G]arden. [A]nd then he continued inside. [H]e did not say anything."

    I think the dog is smarter than to recommend that.
    How is obama working out for you?

    Wouldn't it be rather fuelish to use up the reserves if we're considering launching an attack on Iran and possibly seeing the Strait of Hormuz close temporarily?

    It would be foolish in any case, outside of its intended purpose. And trying to manipulate local gas prices (which it wouldnt do) would also fall into that category.

    What's even more 'fuelish' is not drilling for our own oil. This way we wouldn't give a crap about Iranian oil.

    No problem. About October, he'll change his mind and okay Keystone. With that news, oil prices will drop just in time for the election. He figures the American voter will give him another term out of sheer gratitude at what he did.

    Personally, although I don't have a lot of faith in the American voter of today, I think (hope) they'll see it as a cheap political trick and be more apt to vote him out as a result.
