Skip to comments.Gore to GOP: ‘How dare you?’
Posted on 09/28/2013 12:34:46 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Former Vice President Al Gore accused Republicans Friday of engaging in "political terrorism" by using a government shutdown as leverage to defund ObamaCare.
"The only phrase that describes it is political terrorism, Gore said at the Brookings Institution, according to ABC News. Why does partisanship have anything to do with such a despicable and dishonorable threat to the integrity of the United States of America?
The former vice president also criticized Republicans for threats to link defunding ObamaCare to the debt ceiling, which is set to expire Oct. 17.
"Now you want to threaten to not only shut down our government but to blow up the world economy unless we go back and undo what we did according to the processes of this democracy? Gore said. How dare you?
Gore's "terrorism" comment comes after White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer likened House Republicans to "people with a bomb strapped to their chest" during an interview with CNN Thursday.
"It is not a negotiation if I show up at your house and say, 'Give me everything inside, or I'm going to burn it down.' The Republicans have provided a laundry list of essentially ransom demands," Pfeiffer said....

Why doesn’t this guy just shut his mouth already. Still bitter about getting beat by a true American?
The Sex Poodle doth speaketh crazy things! Isn't it time for another massage somewhere Al??
I thought it was the House of Representatives job to "represent" us in our "Republic" and not be beat into submission by a dictator!
Al Gore, if you look up loser in the dicktionary you will see his picture. All the whining, crying and cheating couldn’t get him the presidency and the funniest thing of all is if he had just carried his home state the cheating would have been enough. So even though the people of Tennessee could put up with him as Senator, his being President scared them. And have you seen the dye job he’s sporting? Nothing says stupid like a man his age dying his hair blond.
Al Gore looking for a new job.
I guess Prince Albert doesn’t have to worry about healthcare premiums.
With these words from Al Gore, we don't need a spokesman for our side. Al Gore has given all the reason for America to know that the DemonRATs are bad ass liars.
Lets start that conversation by acknowledging we arent going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants... bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society. Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors. [but hes not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]
...by softening its edge on some volatile social issues and altering its image as the party always seemingly "eager to go to war... We do need to expand the party and grow the party and that does mean that we don't always all agree on every issue" ... the party needs to become more welcoming to individuals who disagree with basic Republican doctrine on emotional social issues such as gay marriage... "We're going to have to be a little hands off on some of these issues ... and get people into the party," Paul said.
Zero must be getting a bit nervous if he is dragging out the has-been wooden grifter Gore to prop up Obamacare.
Does anyone take Gore seriously anymore?
Apparently Gore's version of Democracy is do things my way.
Awwwwww....Owl Go needs some attention... How precious. (Is Tipper baby still there for him, or what?)
Nah, she’s busy burning Twisted Sister albums....
No, Algore, it’s just plain ol’ workplace violence.
I don’t remember when they first began referring to the Tea Party as terrorists, but I’ve noticed it seems to be the latest talking point the past few days.
And also seems to be folks who can’t be closely tied to the administration.
The Republicans are sending Dems into PR scrambling.
Keep it up.
Come on GOP. Support Cruz.
FAT ALBERT, STILL BLUBBERING. I loved the original Fat Albert cartoon character. The current Fat Albert is just a blubbering idiot.
“Gore said. How dare you?
My ex wife used to say that all the time. Creepy
You have to give Al credit.
He has managed to enrich himself as a loser.
Many would have slinked off and led a quiet life. Al used his big mouth to continue making big bucks and telling the big lie.
He is a shyster, but probably the greatest used car salesman in the world.
Hey,Al, just a reminder - The US is a constitutional republic, not a democracy.
Hey, Al, if you assault a hooker, I mean massage therapist, does it contribute to global warming?
It’s kind of fun watching all the loons whine when the opposition party opposes them. lol
—That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Some call it terrorism. Some, such as myself, call it exercising checks and balances inherent in our constitution.
In my book one of the worse things about Hanoi John mclame is when he has the audacity to point his damn finger at us and say we are the cause of super partisan politics, when its obvious the dems are the ones bashing with most foul rhetoric.
Now ol algore, he is indeed looking for a new gig, as globull warming no longer pulls in billions for him to skim. Maybe he’s figuring on running again..... maybe team up with Donut Christie.
sounds like gore needs his chakra released again.
Wow the democrats are in full fear mode it’s a good thing.
Obviously,Underdog needs his shakra petted again.
Wow - if a brilliant nobel winner like Al Gore says it, it must be true and I’m wrong..........Nah
“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, “the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006
They just start crawling out from under their rocks, don’t they?
