If Al Gore is the answer, it's a pretty fornicating weird question.
It is now December 2002. Al Gore has decided not to run for President in 2004.
Just before that announcement, he hosted Saturday Night Live. Did a really good job at it too.
My wife asked why did he do that if he wasn't going to run. I though for a momement, and decided that he just wanted to have some fun.
He deserved it. After eight years of fighting turf wars with HRC and having BillClinton hide behind his good reputation, and then the knock down drag out election (which he probably could have won if he had run as Al Gore, and not as whatever his DNC handlers though he should be based on poll data), Mr. Gore was due to something fun for himself.
"Vice President [Al] Gore has dedicated many years of his life to the cause of public service.
...But now the time has come for the Vice President to make yet another sacrifice in the service of his country. It is time for Vice President Gore, in the best interests of the nation, to concede the election to Gov. George W. Bush."
Timothy M. Richardson, spokesman for the Fraternal Order of Police
It's December. The Florida Secretary of State has legally declared George W. Bush the winner of the Flordia 25 Electoral College votes. This mean that George W. Bush is going be President come Jan. 20, 2001.
The question is, while AlGore show the statesmanship show by others in the past, and admit defeat? The nation should be allowed to move on.
Will AlGore embrace Clintonism one more time and and instead challange the Constitution? (Answer: Yes)Will he engage in the petty attacks on vote counts?
(Answer: Yes) Will he try to get Electorial College delegates to change their votes for him? (Answer: Yes)If he does, the truth will be come crystal clear. AlGore will show that he cares more for AlGore than he does for America, the Constitution, or the American People.
The actions of the AlGore Campaign has been anything but statemenship like.
They have supported and backed over thirty seperate lawsuits. Lawsuits
that only serve the purpose of trying to hijack the election from the American
Let's be real here folks: Algore is at least FIVE time loser. He lost the
first Florida election. He lost the legally required statewide recount. Despite
his best efforts to deny the vote to members of the US Military, he lost
the absentee ballot. He lost the final tally, delayed (despite Federal Code) by the Florida Supreme Court. He lost his court case to restart the illegal manufacture of AlGore votes by means of a manual recount with questionable standards.
Show some bloody dignity
Algore seems to have taken his strategy from the old movie "Robin and the
Seven Hoods," in which Dean Martin suggests to Frank Sinatra,
"When your opponent's holding all the aces there's only one thing to do: Kick over the table."
AlGore's spin doctors came out early with the Big Lie. They claimed that
the ballot in Palm Beach County was illegal. Whoops, the ballot, designed
by a democratic election offical, is a legal book ballot by state law.
The same type of ballot was used in 1996, and 16,000 votes were tossed out
then for mispunching. This isn't isolated case of an ill designed ballot,
it's a case of the people there can't bloody read. Tests with second &
fourth graders showed that they had no problems figuring out the ballot.
The other half of the SoreLoserman 2000 team was all over the Sunday
Political talks shows (11/19), repeating the Big Lie that this ballot
AlGore's spinners keeping bringing up AlGore's razor thin margin in the popular
vote. It's Less Than 200,000 out of 100 Million ballots counted so far!
That's less than 1/5 of 1%! That's a smaller margin than the one that triggered
the recount in Florida.
If Algore is going to keep on his high hobby horse about winning the popular
vote, then he has no logical reason to contest the vote in Florida, which
has lost, and then lost again. There are still millions of absentee ballots
uncounted across the country. These ballots could not only sink him in Florida,
but the could also cost him several close states and put him behind in the
popular vote. AlGore wants to try to hijack the Florida election before these
votes can be counted.
A week before the election, when the pundits claimed that Gov. Bush could
win the popular vote, while AlGore would sweep the Electoral College, AlGore
stated on MSNBC that the Consitution should rule. He stressed that the popular
vote doesn't elect the President. Now it's the straw he's clinging to.
The SoreLoserman 2000 team's mantra of "count every vote" was proven
to be yet another BIG LIE, when they
War on American Servicemen and Servicewomen overseas. The Democrats
sent out teams of lawyers to every county in Florida, with written detailed,
instructions on how to fight absentee ballots. They stole votes from
over 1400 people, mostly men and women in uniform, through legal trickery,
while demanding that any "chad" not punched for Albore should count as a
vote for Albore. The Big Lie Part II: "A Full and Accurate Count," translated
as "manufacturing votes out of thin air for Algore and illegally removing votes for G.W. Bush"
Let's be real here, the Sore Loserman team does not want a full and accurate count.
This is painfully obvious to anybody with at least two brain cells sparking. They only want a "recount" in counties where they have already have a strong lead. They only want to force local canvassing boards (by court order if needed) to relax the manual recount rules to absurd levels so any vote that isn't clearly punched through for Bush can be "devined" to be a vote for Algore, regardless of the actual intent of voter. They also don't want votes to count if they could possibly be for anybody but Algore (the whining, spoiled, rich kid, crybaby). This is why they sent teams of lawyers to illegally discount any military absentee ballot they could. They still have their lawyer thug squads roaming the Florida courts seeking to deny servicemen & servicewomen their rights, and putting the spotlight on their Big Lie.
Remember what Albore said in an interview in Newsweek magazine back
in 1999, "I'll do anything to win."
If you want the Gore election teams thoughts brought into a sharp focus,
look at these quotes by two people with very simular political views:
Soviet dictator Josef Stalin: "The people who vote decide nothing. The
people who count the vote decide everything."
AlGore Campaign Manager Donna Brazile: "Al Gore won the popular vote.
I did my job. I did get that vote out. Unfortunately, I didn't get to count
Let's be real.
man is delusional. He claims that he and Tipper were the basis for the
book Love Story. The author disagrees. He claims to have
Internet. The Internet went on line the year he started college. The
Research Center has some footage showing that he can't even get the White
House URL right.
And the Beat Goes On folks! AlGore's latest gaff: He claims to have been
the one to blow the whistle on the Love Canal industrial waste problem. He
hadn't even stopped patting himself on the back for that one before he had
to start backpedelling to the truth!
Look back to his, let's be kind, lackluster campaign for President in 1988.
He was bloody awful. The sad truth is that the only election he ever won
was a Senator's seat in Tennesse. He was fortunate that many people there
though they were still voting for his father.
Here is another flat out Gore Lie:
"Vice President Al Gore, in his [Los Angeles] Times/CNN debate with Senator
Bradley, told of an alleged private meeting between Governor Bush, Pat Robertson
and me [Jerry Falwell], from which Pat and I emerged telling the governor
we were pleased with what we had heard,"
According to Rev. Falwell no such meeting ever occurred..."
Let's get to brass tacks, if you're a real liberal, you're
gonna vote for Ralph Nader and not
"I'm going to lay it on the line.. The next president of the United
States has to be someone who the American people can believe will stay with
his convictions." -- Al Gore, 1988 Democratic Presidential Debate,
Al Gore keeps shoveling hot and cold lies about the economy
For example, see his performance in a June 15 interview with PBS anchorman
Jim Lehrer. Mr. Lehrer asked Gore about who could take credit for the economy:
"Let me read you what Governor Bush said about it. The momentum of
today's prosperity began in the 1980s with sound money, deregulation, the
opening of global trade and a 25% tax cut. Has he got it wrong?"
To hear Gores response is to be amazed at the degree to which this
man, like his boss, will shamelessly....lie. "Oh yeah, of course. Because
we had a miserable economic performance in the 1980's, and you don't have
to take my word for that. Just ask anybody on the street who went through
it. We had the worst recession since the Great Depression of the 1930's."
How on earth can anyone pretend that we had a "miserable economic performance"
on a national scale in the 1980s? Reagan saved America from Jimmy Carter
economics: inflation went down from 13.5 to 4.1 percent; unemployment, from
9.5 to 5.2 percent; the federal discount rate, from 14 to 6.5 percent; the
number of jobs up almost 20 million; median family income up every year from
1982 to 1989. It was the greatest peacetime expansion in history.
If you blinked, you missed this on the few news services that covered this.
A tentant farmer on his extensive farm holdings was complaining about the
poor about the poor condition of the house they rented from AlGore. The sinks
backed up, as did the toliet. Months of complaining brought only silence,
followed by an eviction notice. The Gore Management company told them that
they wanted the house for Secret Service agents. Her problems were fixed,
only after going to the press about Al Gore's Slum Lord tactics.
"If this had been a Republican, people would have been crying
slumlord. That would be the headline Slumlord
and a man who doesnt take care of little people..." -- National
Public Radio talk show host Juan Williams on Gores tenant problems,
June 4, 2000 Fox News Sunday.
Al Gore was the first political candidate to raise the Willie Horton
issue when he questioned the Massachusetts Governor about it in a debate
in the New York Democratic primary campaign in 1988.
Gore quotes & quotes about Al Gore:
"I think the ethical standards established in this White House have been
the highest in the history of the White House." -- Al Gore, October 1996
(further proof of his delusional mind set)
"In 1991, [Vice President] Gore cited Bush's China policy as a reason he
should be defeated for reelection, charging Bush sent his emissaries to toast
the butchers of Tiananmen Square.'"
Deborah Orin in the New York Post, March 26, 1997, the day after Gore
drank champagne with Chinese Premier Li Peng, who helped plan the Tiananmen
"We should not reward China with improved trade status when it has continued
to trade goods made by prison labor and has failed to make significant progress
on human rights since the Tiananmen massacre." - Bill Clinton & Al Gore,
in their 1992 book Putting People First
"I think Democrats are really worried about a Clinton backlash on Gore."
-- Former Clinton aide George Stephanopoulos, interviewed on ABC's
"This Week" [4/18/99]
"Inexcuseable." -- Al Gore on Clinton's personal behavior with Monica
Lewinsky, in separate interviews with NBC, ABC and CBS. (So much for being
that loyal VP)
"I think the appeal of Bill Bradley is the same as this magical appeal of
George W. Bush -- they are not a part of the Clinton team. Clinton has got
a bathtub ring all along the ankles of his people. They are going to pay
for this as long as they live." -- Chris Matthews, CNBC's "Hardball".
"I raised tobacco. I want you to know that with my own hands, all of my life,
I put it in the plant beds and transferred it. I've hoed it. I've chopped
it. I've shredded it, spiked it, put it in the barn and stripped it and sold
it." -- Al Gore to North Carolina voters, 1988
"Trying to draw Al Gore is like trying to breathe life into a piece of used
carpet. He doesn't have much going for him." -- Steve Benson, a Pulitzer
Prize-winning political cartoonist at The Arizona Republic.
"You know, we had the elections earlier in the week, and a dead woman, in
Pennsylvania, somehow was on the ballot and she was elected to city council.
A dead woman actually elected! And I'm thinking, well, I guess there is still
hope for Al
Gore." -- David Letterman, The Late Show, CBS.
"Al Gore, of all people, saying, 'This is the centerpiece of my campaign,'
that'd be like Bill Clinton giving sexual harassment seminars," Rep. Lindsey
Graham on Al Gore's plan to make campaign finance reform a centerpiece of
his campaign for the presidency. Source Fox News Sunday
One of Al Gore's principal fund-raisers, Maria Hsia, was convicted of five
felony counts. All were violations of federal Campaign fund raising laws.
VP Al Gore: "... to prevent you from getting weapons you need to defend yourself
is a very difficult case to make morally." Meet the Press, May 2, 1993, answering
a question on the Bosnia arms embargo...too bad he doesn't feel the same
way about law abiding US citizens.
"You make the decision to run first and then you run with all your heart
and soul. . . . Youre going to rip the lungs out of anybody else
whos in the race, and youre going to do it right." (Al Gore
on Deciding to Run for President in 1992, The Tennessean, 7/19/91)
"Its no accident Mr. Gore has assembled, with too little attention,
a Murderers Row of political aides. Ms. Brazile is a race-baiting
specialist who resigned from the Dukakis campaign after accusing George
Bush of having an affair. Adman Carter Eskew wielded his machete for Big
Tobacco." (Paul Gigot column, The Wall Street Journal, 11/19/99) Isn't James Carville always saying that Ken Starr is evil because he worked
for a tobacco company at one point?
The degree to which the liberal media is refusing to cover Gore scandals
is becoming mind-numbing. The
Washington Times revealed
another new one. The White House has somehow managed to "lose" thousands
of subpoenaed Gore e-mail messages from March 1998 to April 1999, which former
official Sheryl Hall said contained messages about the Monica Lewinsky scandal,
the purloined Republican FBI files, the campaign-finance probe, and the political
exploitation of Commerce Department trade junkets.
Gore portrays himself as the technical genius who invented the Internet,
reinvented an inefficient federal government, and connected millions of children
to the World Wide Web, but the White House can't find his own e-mails. Is
this news? Based on the media's non-coverage of Gore scandals to date (including
the White House e-mail scandal, which has been going on for months), we already
know the answer.
"And then there's Al Gore, "Mr. Smith Stays in Washington." Now while Gore
is a major supporter of China being made a member of the World Trade
Organization, he has promised that if elected president, he would "prod"
China on human rights abuses. That's good, Al. You know, lost and found just
called, and your balls still haven't turned up yet." - Dennis Miller
"What do we know about Gore? Well, he opposed the Vietnam war, but served
over there anyway so as not to jeopardize his father's re-election bid for
the Senate. And there, in a nutshell, is a shining example of Al Gore's heroic
willingness to die for his complete lack of core beliefs." -- Dennis Miller
Citizens for a Sound Economy has begun distributing bumper stickers that
read: "Al Gore Is A Pain In My Gas."
Mr. Ralph Nader (Green Party Presidential Candidate, and famous consumer
advocate quoted from Meet the Press) on Al Gore: "A careful reading
of the federal regulatory agencies, like the approval of pharmaceuticals,
the food regulation, the auto safety, aviation-the regulatory agencies under
Clinton-Gore are as bad or worse than under Reagan-Bush."
Mr. Russert asked Al Gore on Meet the Press (7/16/00): "Russia, $7
billion in international loans, much of it American taxpayer money, is missing
in Russia, had been laundered. There was an article in The New York
Times, which I've always wanted to ask you about, and I'll put it on
the screen and have our viewers see it: "When the Central Intelligence Agency
uncovered what analysts considered to be conclusive evidence of the personal
corruption of Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin of Russia in 1995, they
sent it to the White House, expecting Clinton administration officials to
be impressed with their work. Instead, when the secret CIA report on Chernomyrdin
arrived in the office of Al Gore, it was rejected and sent back to the CIA
with a barnyard epithet scrawled across its cover. At CIA headquarters, the
message seemed clear: The vice president did not want to hear allegations
that Chernomyrdin was corrupt and was not interested in further intelligence
reports on the matter."
Tim Russert to Al Gore on Meet the Press 7/16/00: "You have for the
first twenty minutes said we're going to have a robust economy, you're going
to keep it going, and in order to have a robust economy the stock market
keeps have to growing, and so now you're suggesting, because Governor Bush
suggests a plan involving the stock market, 'oh no, that's risky' when you
based your entire premise of your economic program on a robust stock market
and economy. You can't have it both ways."

"Overall, Gore's biggest potential weaknesses are that he panders and stretches
the truth." -- Pew Research Center poll released 7/25/2000

From Al Gore's 1992 Convention Speech: These are things he accused the
Bush/Qualye administration of. It turns out to be a prediction of the
creating a "crisis of the spirit"
having left millions of Americans "betrayed by a government out of touch
with our values and beholden to the privileged few"
"they have embarrassed our nation"
"they have demeaned our democracy"
"the American people are disgusted."
Math, Al Gore Style:
In an interview on FNC's August
11 Special Report with Brit Hume, Jim Angle told Al Gore: "You count in the
longest expansion that you often mention, the longest expansion in American
history, you count 21 months of the Bush administration."
"The Democrats' very own Mutant Master is getting ready to show off his latest
metamorphosis at the Los Angeles convention. Gore must reintroduce himself
to an electorate already suspicious of his serial reintroductions. It's tricky,
because the question is the answer. Who is Al Gore? Al Gore is the man who
keeps remaking Al Gore." -- Maureen Dowd, The New York Times, July
National Taxpayers Union estimates the dollar size of Mr. Gore's new spending
at more than $2 trillion over 10 years. That is enough to take up the entire

The middle-class tax cut that the Clinton-Gore campaign promised in 1992

increase in the top marginal tax rate from 31 percent to 39.6 percent
Just the standard mean-spritedness: The latest issue of Brill's Contentreports
that Algore's supporters repeatedly slam three female reporters.
The journalists, known as the "Spice Girls," are Katharine Seelye of the
New York Times, Ceci Connolly of The Washington Post and Sandra
Sobieraj of the Associated Press. Friends of Algore have described
them as "nasty, snide, caustic, bitter, and biased." Many say the Gore campaign
is just uncomfortable around strong women.
You have to remember though, that Brill's Content magazine has been know
just to make shit up when a deadline approaches...
Without defending Brill too much, Algore has a history of being downright
nasty to anybody who opposes him. I'm sure the DNC got his hearty Okey-Dokey
on posting insulting G.W. Bush jokes on the WWW.
"Gore's Negro tolerance level has never been too high." -- Rep. Cynthia A.

Gore has read about but not lived." -- Dick Morris
Al Gore picked a running mate, Senator Lieberman. The Senator was one of
the first Democrats in Congress to speak out negatively about Bill Clinton's
purgery and other High Crimes. Al Gore called Bill one of the finest Presidents
the day he was impeached.
Mr. Lieberman declared in 1998 that "individual control of part of the
retirement/Social Security funds has to happen."
In case you forgot, Al Gore is dead set against this idea. It's a feature
of the George W. Bush campaign.
CNN Capital Gang liberal columnist
Mark Shields conceded the media held Dick Cheney to a different standard
than they applied to Lieberman: "The press has been in Joe Lieberman's pocket.
I mean let's be honest about it. Let's just point one thing out: All of us
commented, myself among them, on Dick Cheney's student deferments. I mean,
I have seen one story written on Joe Lieberman's student deferments and his
lack of military service."
Democratic delegate quotas and how Senator Joseph Lieberman's religion
contradicts "inclusion" were both raised on Fox News Sunday:
Host Tony Snow to Senator Joe Lieberman after Lieberman insisted the Democrats,
unlike the Republicans, will show real diversity: "But isn't it also true
that for your convention you have quotas?"
Tony Snow asked Gore campaign chairman Bill Daley: "There's a lot of talk
about inclusiveness this week. Mr. Lieberman is an Orthodox Jew. Orthodox
Judaism mandates the separation of sexes in synagogue, it doesn't support
the mixture of sexes in the military, it opposes homosexuality, does not
recognize so-called mixed marriages, that is marrying outside the religion.
My question to you is what's inclusive about that?"
Author and political Columnist Ann Coulter brought up this accurate point:
"Echoing other Gore campaign staffers, ABC's Cokie Roberts casually remarked
on NPR the other day that any "hard-core anti-Semites" are not "likely to
vote for the Democratic ticket" anyway."
"She must be referring to all those registered Republicans like Louis Farrakhan
and Jesse "Hymietown" Jackson."
Remember kids, it was former Democratic Presidential hopeful, the Rev. Jesse
Jackson called New York City "Hymietown" during the 1988 Presidential Campaign.
Just today (8/14/2000), it was reported that the leader of Louis Farrakhan,
another far left of center liberal supporter of the Democratic Party, said
that Joe Liberman would be more beholden to the state of Israel than the
Constitution of the United States.
Joe Liberman's double standards: He voted against Clarence Thomas for Supreme
Court Judge, but voted to acquit Billy Jeff Clinton of purgery and other
High Crimes and Misdemeanors.
My far left extremist friends are
operating in their typical fashion.
They are making insulting smears of anybody they don't like, regardless of
One example is the is smearing jokes they make about Texas Gov. George W.
Bush. They play up his history as a party animal, while they hold up Al Bore
as a shining example of a Harvard student & politician.
What a crock of horse dung!
The truth, as shown by college transcripts, is that George W. Bush maintained
a higher GPA as an undergraduate at Yale than Al Gore did at Harvard.
It seems that Al Gore, who knew as a Senator's son, his position at Harvard
was secure, spent most of his time, watching TV, using illegal drugs, and
eating junk food.
In Clintonism, it's only bad if a Republican does it...
President Clinton excoriated Republican vice presidential candidate Dick
Cheney for voting "against releasing" Nelson Mandela from prison in the 1980s,
but apparently did not realize that he was campaigning for a Democrat who
voted the same way.
"That takes your breath away," Mr. Clinton declared of Mr. Cheney's vote
as a congressman.
Several days earlier, Mr. Clinton praised Bill Nelson, the Democratic candidate
for a U.S. Senate seat in Florida, as a man of great judgment. Yet Mr. Nelson
was one of 32 Democrats who voted against the measure.
