Gore Is Not Running in 08, But If He Was. . . (More Gore Time!)
But, if he were to run… here are the things he would do different…
"We would not have invaded a country that didn't attack us," he said, referring to Iraq. "We would not have taken money from the working families and given it to the most wealthy families."
I Read: Like when Clinton bombed Iraq? Or how about Bosnia? And Exactly how do you choose a country when your enemy is an organization (Al Qaeda)? And you would have taken money from the rich and given it to the poor? Either one is stealing, and still wrong, isn’t it?
"We would not be trying to control and intimidate the news media. We would not be routinely torturing people," Gore said. "We would be a different country."
I Read: We would have the news media on our side, like they were for 8 years (under Clinton), and a still are. This would give us the ability to appear “cooperative”. And instead of "torture", we would spend your tax dollars in lengthy trials on non-citizens that have ill intent towards our nation. This would result in millions of your dollars gone, and no real effect. But, Europe would like us more, and who cares if our enemies are not scared of us?
"There were specific warnings that the levees might break," he said. "But for whatever reason those warnings were not acted upon in a timely way."
I Read: Those warning were ignored by Bush Sr. for 4 years. They were ignored by Clinton for another 8 years. They were then ignored by Bush Jr for 5 more years. Oh yeah, and the Mayors of New Orleans along with the Governors of Louisianna all ignored it for those years too. BUT, if I were the President, things would have been different. Remember, I invented the Internet….
Mr. Gore sure is enjoying making buddies with Europe, and spouting off from the cheap seats. It’s not about what you say you would do Al, but what you did when you were in a position to influence the decision making process. That track record is slightly different from this one you are trying to imply.
