Subject: Bush Lied??

If you really believe that President BUSH lied - - THAT THERE NEVER WERE ANY WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION IN IRAQ AND HE TOOK US TO WAR SOLELY FOR HIS OIL BUDDIES --then read this and, if you are the fair minded person that I believe you to be--, PASS IT ON TO YOUR ENTIRE E-MAIL LIST.

"One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."
President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

"Iraq is a long way from USA but, what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."
Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

"We urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S.Constitution and Laws, to take necessary actions, (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."
Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others Oct. 9, 1998

"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

"Hussein has .. chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999

"There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has invigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue a pace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies."
Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others, December 5, 2001

"We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandated of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them."
Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

"We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."
Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

"Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power." Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction."
Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

"The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..."
Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

"I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force-- if necessary-- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security."
Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002

"There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years ... We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."
Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002

"He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do" Rep.
Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002

"In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

"We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction."
Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002

"Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real ..."
Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan.23.2003


Boy! Talk about two tongued philosophy!!!

I don't remember that one but I remember Gore, speaking at a black church in Tennessee, said this election(2000) is about good vs. evil. Karen Hughes responded saying "we have never thought that Gore was evil". HA!

It's not just Gore. The Dems are out of control. Remember the Wellstone memorial? I think we could build a case for mass psychosis.

"Gore tirade - a bit like an Ann Coulter tirade. Neither very worthy of news time".

Except that Coulter's tirades are usually backed by fact and are not FABRICATIONS SCREECHED OUT AT THE TOP OF HER LUNGS! Sheeeesh!

Actually, it is the 100mg Viagra's!

AlGore, trying to relive his youth, rents a little 2-seater sports car and takes Tipper to a motel for Valentine's Day. He has ingested two 100mg Viagra tablets before the one-hour drive, and is as randy as Hillary's husband by the time they pull up at the love shack.

"C'mon Al, hurry up! Get out of the car before I get out of the mood!"

Al, struggling, "Honey, if I don't get out of the mood, I won't be able to get out of the car!"

Al-baby is warming up for 2008. He'll run, bet on it. Al vs. Hillary.

I seriously doubt that President Kerry will have any meaningful opposition when he seeks his second term.

"He took America, he took America on an ill-conceived foreign adventure dangerous to our troops, an adventure that was preordained and planned before 9-11 ever took place!?

That comment scares the bejeezus out of me. Not because Gore said it, nor because the press is, yet again, failing to criticize him about it, but because there are actual people out there that really do believe this.

Britt Hume and his panel explained that this is Gore's last stand--he's gone completely off the deep end. No kidding.

I do believe that robot(Gore) would blow a circuit if it were confronted with her logic/wit. The robot came close to self destructing the other day all by itself.

(Treated Like Normal Criticism)

It is normal for Communists to attack viral men of Honor they don't have any men of Honor to speak of all they have is a game of blame and accusation !

Do you actually think that the liberal media is going to go against one of their most honored minions ? Think again In a perfect world Gore would be carried out of town on a rail in this world created after 40 years of liberal love-fests all you get is honorations for vile hate speech which they label patriotic first amendment rights .

Sunday, February 8, 2004.  Witnesses say Gore gave a political fire-and-brimstone speech that would have made Cotton Mather turn green with envy.  Among his most memorable lines was his statement that George W. Bush "betrayed this country."  Most politicians understandably have a hard time resisting the impulse to jump onto a bandwagon.  Few have the urge to jump onto one careening over a cliff, except, of course, Al Gore.  Fewer still have exhibited Gore's skill in pushing bandwagons over cliffs.

    Apparently fearing that Howard Dean's scream may have firmly established him as the "Alpha Male" for the entertainment-industry pack, Gore gave a speech today in which one of his goals was for his carotid arteries to appear much larger than did Dean's during his eloquent "I Have a Scream" speech.  Another goal seemed to be to demonstrate that he could scream in a much deeper voice than his protégé, Howard Dean (the Beta Male).  A third seemed to be lure some of the intellectual heavyweights currently supportering Wesley Clark (such as Michael Moore, Madonna, Ted Danson, Drew Barrymore, Peter, Paul & Mary, Jimmy Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, etc.) out of Clark's Military Industrial Duplex and into the MoveOn.Org cult running the Doctor of Spleen Machine.

    Responses to Gore's speech were overwhelming.  He received calls from John Edwards, Wesley Clark, Dennis Kucinich, Al Sharpton, Howard Dean, Lyndon LaRouche, Hillary Clinton and George Bush begging him to endorse John Kerry.  McGovern asked him to endorse Nixon.  He was also swamped by calls from a number of world leaders.  Jacques Chirac asked him to endorse Tony Blair; Tony Blair asked him to endorse Jacques Chirac; and through intermediaries, Saddam Hussein asked him to endorse Bush.  The Christian Coalition urged him to endorse MTV.  John Kerry called to say he would categorically repudiate any endorsement by Gore.

    Offers poured in from the business world as well.  Pepsi offered to pay Gore to endorse Coke in the next Super Bowl.  Michael Jackson, Kobe Bryant and Martha Stewart asked him to endorse their prosecutors.  CBS asked him to endorse Michael Powell.  Dave Letterman asked him to become a regular guest of Jay Leno.

Was Gore right in saying who stooped to betraying?·

I'm Gore, who believes I'm behooved
by speeches I'm giving to prove
the anger of Dean
is wimpy and lean
compared to the hate I exude.

Attacking George Dubya, I say:
"'Twas not just from wisdom he strayed.
I'm raising my voice
alleging his choice
was he would our country betray."

Hey, Al, as the Joe who was nearer
to you when your thinking was clearer,
I sadly must say
to see who betrays
just look at yourself in the mirror.

    Joe Lieberman expressed sadness that Gore had endorsed Dean.  According to PoliSat.Com's highly reliable, anonymous sources, Lieberman told his closest aides, "Gore owed it to me to help me win the nomination, so why didn't he endorse all the candidates (other than me, of course)?  If he had done so, I'd be soaring to victory by now."  Bill Clinton, always eager to express an opinion on issues of great political import, confidentially told the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the National Enquirer and several other papers of record, "Gore's getting a bum rap.  He was the key to my success in avoiding impeachment because a majority of Senators was unwilling to take the heat from their constituents for casting a vote that would make Gore the President."

I just saw the clip on CNN. Al's always whining about how Republicans are supposedly questioning Dems' patriotism, then he essentially accuses Bush of being a traitor! Poor Howard Dean -- Gore's rant made Howie look like Mr. Rogers, yet Dean's the one still getting all the bad press.
