Another Gore Speech

Al Gore has made yet another speech. Why doesn’t this guy just stick to business? Allow me to comment on a few items in this article.

Gore said that if he had won the 2000 election, the US would be a different country. While granting that it would likely be somehow different, allow me to point out what Gore himself still refuses to acknowledge: he did win the 2000 election. Victory was stolen from him illegally, yet he did not challenge this crime, suggesting strongly that he was in on the scam (just like Kerry, but that is another story).

In answer to questions about how America would be different, Gore gave several examples including, “We would not be trying to control and intimidate the news media.” Does he really believe this? The mainstream media have been controlled for a long time; it didn’t start with Dubya.

Meanwhile, RNC spokesperson Tracey Schmitt characterized Gore’s comments as “fictitious rants that border on dangerous.” Great hyperbole from someone who must have attended the same spinmeister school as Ari Fleischer and Scott McClellan. In reality Gore’s comments are so reserved and circumspect he must be trying not to offend Bush.

Schmitt continued by saying, “To accuse Americans of participating in ‘routine torture’ is absurd and reveals that while Al Gore may no longer be a leader in his party, he still embodies the maniacal anger that guides Democrat leaders in Washington today.” Wow! “Maniacal anger”? Far be it from me to defend the worthless, pusillanimous Democrats, but one need look no further than the White House to find maniacal anger. Of course an outpouring of vitriol always deflects the public’s attention from one’s own shortcomings.
