Mum's the word on Gore wiretapping
worldnetdaily ^ | 20 January 2006 | Les Kinsolving

Posted on 01/19/2006 5:25:49 PM PST by Aussie Dasher

Presidential press secretary Scott McClellan today refused to acknowledge the fact that then-Vice President Al Gore led a Clinton administration program that potentially could have bugged every phone in the country, this after the Democrat hammered President Bush Monday for allowing wiretaps of suspected terrorists.

The "Clipper Chip" project would have placed a chip on new phones, allowing the federal government the means to eavesdrop.

"Isn't that worth pointing out to the American people, after [Gore] accused President Bush of breaking the law and violating the Constitution?" asked WND.

"I think you just did," responded McClellan. "This is an administration that is forward-looking, Les. We're focused on the priorities of the American people. … No, I'm not going to get into that."

WND also asked the spokesman about first lady Laura Bush's unusually strong denunciation of Hillary Clinton for comparing the way the Republicans control the House of Representatives to a plantation.

Asked WND: "Has she ever been as outspoken as this before, in your knowledge?"

Gore really IS as stupid as he looks!

The admin has an almost pathological inability to get its message accross. It makes the nation weaker. Very bad.

Yawn. That's an extremely tattered and old hat around these parts.

Check this link for NewsMax article about this "stunning" revelation. Searching Free Republic for nuggets such as that kind of puts a totally different spin onto that Geico Gecko commercial, eh?

Gore always has been up the bloody wall.

And at one time was world's most dangerous dullard.

Recruited to be the vice-presidential running mate for the single cynical reason his sub-normality guaranteed the senate could never convict and/or bounce the fatally flawed, recidivist, lying, looting, thieving, mass-murdering, treasonous and impeached Billy-Bubba Blythe Cli'ton the Hell outta Dodge.

Sometimes you need to step into the ring and sling some mud back at your opponent.

Bush thinks he is taking the higher ground here....after the MSM gets through with him, he may not feel this was the proper course.

its not inability, they just do not want too.
Really, I think I would do the same, why justify this argument by answering it. It would make them appear small by participating but it would go no where in the Dem owned MSM.

Not defending his own administration against insanity from the left is fine and dandy while an incumbent.

But not defending against attacks by prospective challengers to that office (who have done everything except sign papers declaring their nomination) weakens the entire incumbent party, not just the incumbent presidency.

Will the Bush administration be castrated forever from answering these insane attacks from the hypocritical left? In politics, nice guys always finish last.

I haven't been impressed with anyone named "McClellan" since 1862.

Wait, hold up, so something's OK just because Gore was willing to authorize it when he as in office? Fishy argument to me, given that Gore's no role model.

I think McClellan is a lightweight and his mother reminds me of Ann Richards. I don't understand why the Bush's won't touch any of the underhanded things that the Clintons did. I'm beginning to think Hillary's got something on them too.

algore was elected president you know?
Ask him, he'll tell you.

He'll also tell you Tipper is a hottie, thus proving he is out of his mind.
