Gore demands six resignations
Washington Times ^ | 5/27/04 | Amy Fagan

Citing what he called "arrogance, willfulness and bungling" by President Bush in his foreign policy, Al Gore yesterday blamed flawed policies for the abuse of Iraqi prisoners and said six administration officials should resign because of the Iraq situation.

In a fiery speech at New York University -- sponsored by the political action committee of the liberal group MoveOn.org -- the former vice president called for the resignations of Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, CIA Director George J. Tenet, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, and Douglas J. Feith and Stephen A. Cambone, both undersecretaries of defense.

Another clanger from Big Al. For a guy who was a heartbeat away from the Presidency, he sure has a tin ear for politics. Tell it to Howard Dean, your choice for the Democratic nomination.

How many cabinet level officers were asked to resign as a result of the Clinton-Gore administration's blindess to the WTC bombing? Zero.

The more news coverage that former VP Gore's rants get, the more Dems will fall in national popularity.

Time to put him in front of cameras 24/7 on his own network!

Or for bombing the Chinese embassy in Yugoslavia in 1999?! Again, none.

Or for their attack and burning of the Branch Davidian compound near Waco in 1993?! Again, zero.

Then the media can ask why during the Clinton / Gore administration they didn't build more highly armored humvees and decreased our troops 30% beyond the prior Bush I cuts following the end of the cold war.

Got to admit he has some big brass ones for daring to say this.

"Meanwhile, Mr. Gore heaped praise on Democratic presidential contender Sen. John Kerry, but said the Massachusetts Democrat shouldn't have to provide his own detailed plan for the Iraq situation until after he wins the election because too many things could change in Iraq between now and then".

The war on terror could be over by now if Gore had put that much energy out against the terrorists. He would have scared them all back to Christianity.

Exhibit A) Al Gore yesterday blamed flawed policies for the abuse of Iraqi prisoners and said six administration officials should resign because of the Iraq situation.

Exhibit B) Meanwhile, Mr. Gore heaped praise on Democratic presidential contender Sen. John Kerry....

(April, 1971 audio transcript from Meet the Press)
John Kerry:"Yes, I committed the same kind of atrocities as thousands of other soldiers have committed, in that… I took part in shootings in free fire zones, I conducted harassment and interdiction fire, I used 50 caliber machine guns which we were granted…ordered to use, which were our only weapon against people. Uh, I took part in search and destroy missions, in the burning of villages. All of this, is contrary to the laws of warfare, all of this is contrary to the Geneva conventions. Meanwhile: Yes, I committed the same kind of atrocities as thousands of other soldiers have committed, in that… I took part in shootings in free fire zones, I conducted harassment and interdiction fire, I used 50 caliber machine guns which we were granted…ordered to use, which were our only weapon against people. Uh, I took part in search and destroy missions, in the burning of villages. All of this, is contrary to the laws of warfare, all of this is contrary to the Geneva conventions.

So Algore has come out firmly on the side of the terrorists. I'm surprised he didn't turn and spit on the American flags behind him.

This coming from a guy who served on an administration which bombed innocent Serb civilians in order to advance Muslim terror in the Balkans (and divert attention from its own corruption).

Is it sedition? Treason? Aiding and abetting the enemy?

Distasteful when done by Hollywierdos - actionable when done by someone the terrorists can look to as an ally?

Albert Gore, Jr is seriously at odds with reality. The man is embarrassing to watch. To see him is painful. I watched the reports this afternoon and I was sorry for him. He is totally washed up in any sort of political contest. His credibility is a total zero and he causes the people around him to take on the aspect of a crowd of rubber-neckers gawking at some unfortunate having a fit.It's like watching someone trying to be very correct and proper with his fly gaping open.

On the other hand, I say, "Get to it Al. Everytime you open your face it proves costly to the democrats, and anything like that can't be all wrong." Everyone this moron endorses gets the "kiss of death."

'Spotted Al' is really pathetic. It is obvious that he has slipped into delusions of grandeur. The man needs help, and adequate medication with drugs like Thorazine and Stelazine, because he is clearly psychotic.

What the heck is up with this whole influx of resignation demands? I'm guessing it's yet another DNC/Mainstream Media talking point. This probably won't be the last time a prominent lib utters "demand" and "resign" in the same sentence.

They should all resign and be imprisoned for the following crimes:

Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld - took 900K bribe from Bernie Schwartz and kept him out of prison for selling missile secrets to the Chicoms

National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice - ripped off the Cattle Futures market to the tune of 100K and hid billing records under subpoena

CIA Director George J. Tenet - raped nursing home owner and assaulted woman in the White House who came begging for a job

Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz - committed perjury before a grand jury and had secretary hide evidence under her bed

Douglas J. Feith - presented false affidavit to a court and had law license revoked

Stephen A. Cambone - destroyed evidence and had thugs intimidate witnesses

Has the losing candidate of any presidential election ever been so critical of the winner's administration? Most losing candidates seem to have the sense enough to fade into relative obscurity.
Maybe he's unhinged by the realization that he will never, ever be president himself.

He is really nutting up. Maybe he needs Electro Convulsive Therapy. Yes, it is still done and can be quite effective at relieving the type of manic, irrational, angry behavior that Gore exhibits.

Gore's speech, if it gets a lot of play, may be the RATS' Wellstone moment of the campaign. They are definitely ratcheting up the rhetoric lately --- first Robert Reich, then Hillary!, now Algore. This will backfire.

But I don't expect the speech to get much play. It appears to be buried in the Slimes.

Albert Gore Junior peaked in high school. He just thinks because he successfully won his father's Senatorial seat (after failing in school) that he was onto bigger and better things.

John Kerry peaked too. He could have lived in the Senate until retirement without anyone realizing how useless he was (the national press wasn't as closely focused on his flip flops then).

Yet another moronic tirade from Gore. Doesn't he realize his 15 minutes expired 4 years ago? He's too much of a nitwit to realize that Tenet was appointed by Clinton. Really, I think he's more of a detrement to Kerry than an asset. Let him blather and demogogue all he likes.....PLEASE!

Who the F is this fat creep to demand anyone's resignation? He's a loony bird, and someone should drop a net over him. I just watched a Fox show, and Charles Krauthammer said, "It appears that Al Gore is off his lithium".
Liberals are notorious for demanding apologies, and now they're into demanding resignations, their latest battlecry.
I demand that algore shut the F up!
