Is President Bush likely to see Al Gore's documentary about global warming?
"Doubt it," Bush said coolly Monday.
Bush has had bitter disagreements with Gore about the environment and other issues. Bush defeated Gore, then the Democratic vice president, in a disputed presidential election that was finally settled by the Supreme Court in 2000.
Gore's documentary chronicles his efforts to bring greater attention to the dangers of climate change.
"New technologies will change how we live and how we drive our cars which all will have the beneficial effect of improving the environment," Bush said. "And in my judgment we need to set aside whether or not greenhouse gases have been caused by mankind or because of natural effects and focus on the technologies that will enable us to live better lives and at the same time protect the enviroment."
Gore's movie debuted at last winter's Sundance Film Festival and opens in U.S. theaters Wednesday.
Speaking Saturday in France at the Cannes Film Festival about global warming, Gore said, "I even believe there is a chance that within the next two years, even (President) Bush and (Vice President) Dick Cheney will be forced to change their position on this crisis," he said. "One can only attempt to create one's own reality for so long. Reality proper has a way of insisting itself upon you."
Al Gore makes fiction; President Bush makes history.
Common sense must have been hard for the AP reported to accept, and it's even harder for Al Gore to understand.
Global Warming caused by man is as fictional as the "manbearpig"
Calvin Coolidge liked to speak in 2 word clips also.
Both cool Presidents.
So far, Al Gore's done a good job of it.
Yet some people seem to be able to avoid it for a lifetime.
Obviously, Al understands... he just doesn't get it.
its kinda like the author of the Da Vinci code demanding that the Pope go and see the movie.
Bush Not Likely to See Gore's Film,
I doubt if he will be alone.
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." -Joseph Goebels, (1897-1945)
Its sad, but now the global warming lie as become fact.
the response to the reporter's question is not worth wasting breath on, let alone the unnecessary depletion of time and money to actually go and see it
Yeah, that and the fact that Gore at no point in any of the official counts and recounts had more ballots than Bush. It was close, yes, but Bush was the clear winner.
Hideous, preachy wind-bag.
What is it with loony lefties making phony "mockumentaris"?
First Michael Moore and now Algore.
LOL, Cmon, Mr. President! All work and no play makes George a dull boy, watch it for what it is-comedic entertainment!
Who said our President isn't smart?
Proves he is by avoiding Al Snore's trash.
