"In the United States of America, unfortunately we still live in a bubble of unreality. And the Category 5 denial is an enormous obstacle to any discussion of solutions. Nobody is interested in solutions if they don't think there's a problem. Given that starting point, I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous (global warming) is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis." -- Al Gore
Far be it from me to defend Gore, but I think you guys are misinterpreting him. I think the phrase isn't about overstating the facts of the case, but that it's okay to beat people over the head repeatedly with the message.
Just knew there had to be a word for it.
Wish they'd send some of that damnable global warming stuff Seattle-way.
That sounds like the usual dim talking points.
"It's not the nature of the evidence, but the seriousness of the charge."
No wonder Tipper is on the bottle.
If a "lie" is promulgated in advancing communism, as you say, it is not viewed as a "lie", but as the "Marxist-Leninist truth"!
And if it's good enough for Marx, Engels and Lenin, then by gosh, it's good enough for Al!
Oh, no, it won't.
It'll work for Al, but it won't work for you. After all, you're just a plebe.
Half man, half bear, and half pig.
I'm cereal about this.
"Algore BETRAAAAAYED this country! He played on our FEEEEEARS!
What's so amazing about it?
When he engaged in crime, he justified that, too, by saying that "there was no controlling legal authority".
Then surely an exaggeration about possible attacks on the US is okie dookie no?!
Add this to the "Do as I say, not as I do" file #
Al Gore is pronounced Al-Takeyya
Liberals always believe its OK to lie to further their cause... because the ends justify the means therefore lying is noble....
Same thing the communists did, the nazis did, the facists did and still do...
Or is it half man, half bearpig?
Hard to believe that this self admitted liar was nearly President. He should not be in any public office.
What he mean to say is....
"I'M AN ATTENTION WHORE!"
Well, that explains it then!
Creating a problem (Global Warming) to fit the solution (Al Gore's world acording to him, and how Americans are BAD consumers of Energy and producers of harmfull/hurtfull greenhouse gases).
We might have been born at night. I was not born last night.
Get a grip.
Hitler would have loved it.
an over-representation of factual presentations...
He doesn't say an over-representation of the facts, or of statistics, or any such thing. The key word here is "presentations." He's talking about disproportionally talking about the the issue; not altering the content.
And believe me, I know what a liar he is. Let's just make sure we hammer him about actual lies. We've had enough grief from leftists who don't know what constitutes a lie.
