Al Gore is insane! End of story! The entire Democrat Party needs to be totally destroyed at the ballot box this November. Less that, and it is goodby to the USA!
hanoi john looks positively sane and moderate next to the insane raving madman prince al the bore. Could this be part of their ploy to make hanoi john in to seeming moderate????????
Is Gore for real?
I remember it from the local news. He was tired of stupid liberal tricks. Limbaugh and Republicans would do well to confront these lunatics with the same courage and contempt.
We are headed that way as the democrats become focused solely on HATE. I mean they are burning every bridge behind them in this downward spiral.
By the way, citing 70 year old history regarding one election has nothing to do with the way people think today. I know it would be the "honorable" way to play this game but if you look at the polls here in America you will see that Kerry is actully gaining. I also know it's early but the American people are easily swayed by the media. And, unless GWB starts fighting back, even a supporter like me, starts to think he has no backbone.
While I think Common Tator has a point, I think GWB is already "there" in terms of being the "fixer". He already has that high ground. He should be more on the offensive now, and all the way up to Nov 2. It's Kerry that has nothing but attacks. Unfortunately, since he has the media on his side, the attacks are working. It might be a good idea to hold off for now, but GW should definitely do some attack ads before the election, and also, using his office, do the same in a more subtle way with the media. That, combined with the fact that he's the only one with ideas at this point, will win him the election.
Again though, in today's era of sound bites, he can't simply be the "fixer". He must also be somewhat agressive.
In due time.
Never mind that I'm thankful that AlSoreloser is not our president, but I am glad that I am not part of the administration. It has nothing to do with any disagreement with the President, or with his policies or agenda. I am completely in favor of the President, and would take a bullet for him if I could.
The reason I'm glad not to be part of the administration is that I would be so incensed at all of the falsehoods that are daily (and loudly) perpetrated by the left, that I would be calling for charges of treason and sedition, and calling for a scene out of "Hang 'Em High" with Clint Eastwood, a mass hangin' in the town square. Or, to be more humane, a mass serving of the triple cocktail. After all, "Flipper" Kerry, wouldn't that "Let America Be America Again"? People used to get the lethal Bill Blass tie for poaching cattle, for cryin' out loud.
The best way to get rid of smelly trash is not to put an air freshener in the trashcan, or to spray Glade in there. The best way to get rid of smelly trash is to THROW OUT THE TRASH. Or, in our case, VOTE out the trash.
When I have smelly trash at home, I don't let it consume me. I do my work, take care of my priorities, wrap up the trash, throw out the trash, and go on with my life, doing the right thing.
So the best thing that can happen is for the Administration to keep working, to keep America as safe as possible. Take care of Iraq. Take care of the economy. Combat the lies with the truth. Get reelected. And then...TAKE OUT THE TRASH.
In the meantime, to make ourselves feel better...call out the VIKING KITTIES!!!
You create the impression that a brilliant person like you can see through Gore... but the ordinary dumb idiots not born with your brilliance have to watch a fight between Bush and Gore to see the truth.
What a load of condescending garbage.
You don't think moderate, ordinary Americans are swayed by what they see and hear on TV??? Are you joking? Mass media - network television in particular - is a billion dollar industry simply because people believe, and will buy, what they see on TV. In this country, there are so many, particularly the elderly, that still believe that whatever is shown on network news is the gospel truth. They are of the old school in believing that "Walter Cronkite would never lie!" Dan Rather et al have stepped into those shoes, and although a vast number see through the bias, sadly, many do not.
After the relentless pounding of the Bush administration by the media, Al Gore steps in and turns it up a notch. You don't think those who have only gotten one side of the news will believe what he is saying? The fact is that older Americans are less likely to have internet access - many don't even have cable. Unfortunately many good, decent people may not be politically savy and well read. When the media distorts and takes out of context most everything the Bush administration puts forth, many people are only getting part of the picture. And they believe what little they see. It doesn't make them "dumb idiots" as you say. All they know is what they've been told. And they vote.
I don't advocate having President Bush lower himself to the depths of the filthy mud slingers. I DO believe however, sometimes silence isn't golden.
The more we hear from Alberta Gore, the more Gore sounds like Michelle Moore, only Gore is more the Boor than Moore.
Anyone ever consider that Kerry *wants* PsychoGore out there to make him look reasonable by comparison?
Gore gets to pound Bush to the rabid moron.com crowd, and Kerry gets to sit there and look, well, not psycho.
Their strategy last year was to run a composite candidate (one with military experience, Wes Clark, one to appeal to the Nader voters, Howard Dead, one to appeal to the black community, Al Sharpton, one to appeal to the Clinton southerners, Edwards...).
Al Gore is able to say some things that need to be refuted by the DNC but they will never do it. Also, Bill Clinton has been notable silent (then again he's saving it for his book's promotional tour).
I don't know who is the bigger a-hole, Al Gore or Rush.
I shudder to think that algor might have become President....same true for Ketchup Boy.
Rush's moment, it seems to me, is in the fall. Rush holds the opinion that "the long form" - his openended talk format - exposes character and intelligence in a way that short, scripted programs on TV never will. If he is correct, and if he seriously wants to illuminate the actual choice in Nov'04, he should give the vp candidates and/or the presidential candidates time for a series of 3-hour (less commercials) chess-timer-moderated debates on the radio. Let we-the-people learn what these candidates are made of. Let the candidates use notes and/or laptop computers if they want, but let them talk long enough to expose their characters to the public. And the candidates need not physically be together nor spend long in cram sessions.
Kill the Wabbit! Kill the Wabbit! Kill the Wabbit! Huh huh huh huh!
You're right. It's interesting how The President Of The United States, Commander In Chief of the Armed Forces, Leader Of The Free World is supposed to drop everything to denounce a guy on the radio, while Michael Moore is "just an entertainer, and can't you guys take a joke?".
For instance: When Bush gave his speech last Monday? about Iraq he went before a war college. To me this is either preaching to the choir or he's afraid to stand up in front of hostile crowd or even a neutral crowd.
This, to me, is a lack of fortitude. If he's convinced that he is right (I think he is regarding the war on terror) then he should be able to speak his mind in front of any crowd.
Gore got what he wanted -
Gores thoughts..." If that little twerp who writes for the Palm Beach Post can get national exposue for attacking Rush, why can't I do the same thing ? "
Rush considers him relevant enough to even mention him - otherwise noone would have even heard of this rant.
