The following release was posted Tuesday night to the web log of Senator James Inhofe:
From behind the scenes on Capitol Hill: Former Vice President Al Gore, despite being given major preferential treatment, has violated the Senate Environment & Public Works Committees (EPW) hearing rules.
Gore first demanded to be granted an unprecedented 30 minute opening statement to the Senate EPW Committee for Wednesdays (March 21) global warming hearing scheduled for 2:30 pm ET.
The GOP minority on the EPW committee agreed to the 30 minute opening statement.
But then Gore demanded a waiver of the EPW committees 48 hour rule that requires all witnesses before EPW to submit their testimony in advance. The GOP minority on the EPW committee then agreed to waive the 48 hour rule in favor of allowing Gore to submit his testimony 24 hours before the hearing.
But in a breaking news development on Capitol Hill, the former Vice President has violated the new 24 hour deadline extension by failing to submit his testimony even with the new time extension granted to Gore.
As of 8pm ET Tuesday evening, the testimony still has not been received by EPW, a clear violation of committee rules.
The word on Capitol Hill says not to expect Gores testimony to the Senate EPW committee until Wednesday (March 21) - the day of the hearing.
It appears that Gore does not believe the same rules apply to him that apply to every other Senate EPW witness.
Gore plays by his own rules.
He's a dhimmicrat, not an American.
The story basically describes how they botched the chance to do it -- three times. So far.
He should be as anyone with half a brain knows that Global Warming is only for political activists, a hoax in humongous form! A back door approach for the return of Kyoto
the protection of all Grants and other Funding for faux science. Gores inquisitors (should watch this) then just thank him for stopping by, we have no questions for you at this time. Now run along like a good little politician...No, wait a minute, you could face the trash problem in space...that would really be a good thing or you might shed some light on the growing threat along our borders....nah...too hard...........
Mr. Gore, Can I get your autograph?......It's for my kids, you know.......
A Gaia worshipper...
The REPUBs should have prevented him from testifying today given he failed to meet even the shortened time frame. Gore was only a former senator so its understandable he might not respect senate rules (sarcasm fully intended).
It nice we have a caste system in the US. If you or I pulled such a stunt before a congrestional committe (I once did testify before a house environmental subcommittee), they would hardly be willing to tolerate such arrogance.
Arrogant, gutless, without regard to protocol, smug, fearful, and spineless...
And I'm talking about the frickin' weeenie GOP who continue to rankle my ass beyond staying sane, with their constant caving, and allowing the Democrats to RUN ALL OVER THEM.
HOW CAN WE FIGHT WHEN WE CONTINUE TO PUT LINGUINI IN OFFICE TO REPRESENT US?!!?
I'M STARTING TO HATE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY!
Gore is a global warming special interest. His carbon credits comapny makes more money when more people are guilt tripped into making up for their carbon emissions.
"Don't you know who I am?!!!"
Is Gore being sworn in under oath?
Every time a D goes to the rest room, or is otherwise absent from the meeting, all but one R should walk out and suggest the absence of a quorum.
Make sure you watch this debunking video and burn copies and pass it along to friends and neighbors!
What do tou expect Clinton trained him and he got away with it.
He looks like a bloated pig.
Actually, on that point, she is correct. What are you, a wuss? You let your children disobey their mother and you don't enforce the rules? What, do you hate your wife that much that you'd let that happen? I have no respect for a father who acts like that.
Algore is the only customer of his Carbon Credits Company. I wonder how many credits it takes to offset that $1,000,000 of Occidental Petroleum Stock?
Oh sure, take her side ;-)
Really, I'm not taking HER side so much as standing against YOUR side. Stand up and defend your wife. If she were attacked by muggers, would you stand by and do nothing?
Well, YOUR children are mugging her. Go defend your wife . . . IF you're NOT a wuss, Charles.
