Gore Blasts Bush for Disbanding Senate Intelligence Cte., Charges Nixon-like Coverup over 911
C-SPAN ^ | November 9, 2003 | nwrep

Posted on 11/09/2003 11:47:40 AM PST by nwrep

Al Gore has charged that the Bush administration is attempting to cover-up the 9/11 investigation by dismissing the Senate Intelligence Committee.

In a speech sponsored by the Communist Group Moveon.org, Gore dismissed the partisan Democrat memo advising the committee to use intelligence information for political purposes as "trivial", and accused Bush of over-reaching in his authority, in much the same way as Richard Nixon did when he fired his Chief Investigator during the Watergate scandal.

It was reported here that Senator Frist disbanded the Senate Intellignce Committee after the partisan memo revealed it would be unable to carry out its work in a bipartisan manner.

As usual, the dems must distort the facts in order to launch their attack.

It was Frist, not Bush, who dismantled the committee.

BTW, Joe Wilson is affiliated with MoveOn.org, and I have my own accusations, Algore, of exactly who is up to what, and it ain't pretty. For you or the pigs you are wallowing with.

It doesn't matter that Bush had nothing to do with disbanding the committee. All that counts are sound bites. Now that Al said it, everyone in the media and in politics can echo the line.

Yup. And that is why the pressure must be kept up to keep making the truth be told and not let them get away with their treacherous spin.

Oh sure he has a purpose, he's a great punching bag for the GOP faithful. I mean, come on, people talk about Bushisms, but Gore's done like 10,000 times more.

If nothing else, Gore gave us the "I invented pants" commercial.

See, even scum has some purpose. :)

My hunch is that the poster has not been forthright. It was likely" that cspan.org would air the speech, according to moveon.org. Gore's words can be read at algore.com

In a revealing move, just three days ago, the White House asked the Republican leadership of the Senate to shut down the Intelligence Committee's investigation of 9/11 based on a trivial political dispute. Apparently the President is anxious to keep the Congress from seeing what are said to have been clear, strong and explicit warnings directly to him a few weeks before 9/11 that terrorists were planning to hijack commercial airliners and use them to attack us.

Astonishingly, the Republican Senate leadership quickly complied with the President's request. Such obedience and complicity in what looks like a cover-up from the majority party in a separate and supposedly co-equal branch of government makes it seem like a very long time ago when a Republican Attorney General and his deputy resigned rather than comply with an order to fire the special prosecutor investigating Richard Nixon.

When did George W. Bush become a Senator with authority to suspend any Senate committee?

Well they have blabbled for years about how Senator McCarthy ran the House Committee on Un-American Activities so their thinking that the President runs Senate committees is not such a stretch.

If the "Memo" is so innocent, why won't Al Gore post its full contents on his website?

If the Memo is so trivial, why won't its author stand up and admit that she/he wrote it?

If the Memo is so damning to Republicans, why are ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR, and the NY Times trying so hard to downplay it?

Hmmm...methinks that this Memo isn't so trivial, innocent, or a blight on Republicans at all!

Since Al Gore was once a Senator, he ought to realize that the Senate does what it wants, and the President does not decide whether there is a Senate Intelligence Committee. Of course, Gore invented the internet, so maybe he's only a tech geek and doesn't know those things.

By using the link you posted, I can get to the moveon endorsement on cpusa.org. If I just go to cpusa.org, I can't find it! Where do you look beyond the opening page? Thanks,

Re: "All that counts are sound bites. Now that Al said it, everyone in the media and in politics can echo the line."

That's right.

I will once again reference something that I think explains the likes of Gore's inane remarks. He is doing what David Horowitz described as "the issue is not the issue." I understand that to mean the left uses "issues" as weapons. There is only one issue and it is The issue: destroy the Bush administration. Of course THE issue is destroy America's sovereignty and military power.

Gore is relaying the "issue" du jour. In silliness it ranks with the "Mission Accomplished" banner. It is now officially part of the "case" against President Bush that spluttering mindless liberals repeat by rote. We waste our time disputing it. The left has moved on to prepare tomorrow's "issue."

The left will not stop. They have to be stopped.

Think that it can't work to destroy a president? In 1972 Nixon was elected with more than 60.0 percent of the popular vote, he got 520 electoral votes to 17 for the Democrat. In about two years he was out of office. Yes, there was the phony Watergate "issue." No Watergate for President Bush. Instead there are thousands of cuts.

The life-long petty-criminal scion of the RICO-racketeering Armand Hammer-Goreleone organized-crime family, who, for eight long and nightmarish years, was onec the world's most dangerous dullard, Alberto "Sonny" Girlyboy Goreleone should, if there was any justice to be had, be at the butt end of the present round of "princess"-slattern Diana-Spencer-descended allegations concerning sexual deviancy.

Treasonous, thieving, lying, looting, mass-murdering, co-serially-raping bloody poofter bastard.

"Carl Levin kept saying the memo was "stolen" to Tony Snow this am."

What an idiot! That would be proof of partisanship. The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is non-partisan. Everything, all memos, notes, research is equally shared between both Parties. You can't steal something that you are already sharing, thus, if stolen, it implies that the Democrats weren't playing by the non-partisan rules...a violation that cuts them to the quick here.

In 1972 there was no Internet, no talk radio, no Washington Times, no Fox News. Yes, there will be no Watergate for President Bush, because it is not 1972.

Coming so closely after the comment that "Hannity is next", I am feeling slightly uncomfortable about this whole subject. Someone "we would never expect" slips Sean a memo, now we get treated to stories about theft, and a 911 cover-up.

I can't imagine the Dems were so bright as to predict that Frist would shut down the committee. Who would have predicted that? So thinking that it has all been engineered is rather ridiculous. But this is all rather convenient, isn't it?
