Gore to GOP: ‘How dare you?’
The Hill ^ | September 27, 2013 | Justin Sink

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

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....

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.

""Now you want to threaten to not only shut down our government but to blow up the world economy . . ."

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.

"The number one advocate for global warming is a politician, and here's a guy now who has made millions, multiple millions of dollars scaring people with this big, fat lie. It has been proven to be a lie and untrue. He has made millions off of this, and he's suggesting that anybody who disagrees with him be punished, or outcast, or pay some kind of a price. Public humiliation or a tax increase or something. This is precisely the mental attitude of dictators and statists who don't tolerate dissent."

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.

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.

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.

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.

“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

‘nuff said
