Al Gore Warns That 2000 Could Repeat Itself

Al Gore Warns That 2000 Could Repeat Itself @ 4:11 pm by Chris Good

Former Vice President Al Gore today warned that Democrats could see another candidate fall just short of the White House if supporters do not work hard to push Barack Obama toward victory between now and Nov. 4

Gore sent an e-mail to MoveOn.org supporters this afternoon, urging them to volunteer for Obama's campaign and using 2000 as a cautionary tale.

"Barack Obama is rising up to unite America behind his vision of progressive change. Yet we know from 2000 that progress is not inevitable. Victory can fall just out of reach. And the difference of a few thousand votes can put our country on a decidedly different path," Gore wrote.

A Japanese doctor says, ‘Medicine in my country is so advanced that we can take a kidney out of one man, put it in another, and have him out looking for work in 6 weeks.’

A German doctor says, ‘That is nothing. We can take a lung out of one person, put it in another, and have him out looking for work in four weeks.’

A British doctor says, ‘In my country, medicine is so advanced that we can take half a heart out of one person, put it in another and have both of them out looking for work in two weeks.’

The American doctor, not to be outdone, interjected, ‘You guys are way behind. We are about to take a Muslim with no brains, put him in the White House, and then half the country will be looking for work in one week.

If the current solar trend continues, it will soon be so cold, that even the dumbest amongst us will realize, Al Gore has always been a little funny in the head.

First,Algore is an asshat. Second I think he’s right, except for one state’s election mess, the potential is there for multiple states to go by way of FLA.2000.

So it was progress to go from Clinton to Gore? I think Al got so big because his hubris gland swelled up.

Al Gore needs to go back to the really important work of being a huckster for the hoax of global warming.

From your lips to G-d’s Ear... Al Gore lost the election in 2000 so he could discover his life mission: To become the biggest snake oil salesman in all of recorded history.

Vote for John McCain on 4 November.

Is Gore saying that Obama will try to steal the election the same way that Gore tried?

What, OBambi will try to have a state Supreme Court help him cheat an electorate out of their vote? I’m shocked.

Oh my goodness, that mean they are afraid they won’t be able to steal enough votes and fool enought people. That is the only way they can win, though I am beginning to be suspicious of some of the people who believe the lies ... cue Janie Fricke’s - Tell Me A Lie.

Warning to Pubbies:


Democrats are already pulling dirty tricks that made it possible for Algore to make it close in 2000. Don't listen to reports of exit polls. Pay no attention to the MSM predictions. GOTV!

Repeat of 2000?

You mean Obama will lose the election, disappear for a while, and they return to promote a disproven environmental hoax for while, only to eventually disappear forever?

YES - I’ll take it!

Well, they’re already trying to throw out military votes like they did in 2000.

Say, Al, how’s the weather up there in the northeast?

Can history repeat itself?

Will Algor shuffle his awkward lumpy penguin body out in front of the TV cameras everyday until December to tell the press how the meanie head Republicans are suppressing the vote - while his lawyers work overtime trying to get judges to toss every military ballot?

"Al Gore Warns That 2000 Could Repeat Itself"

Oh no! Does that mean that obama will gain 80 pounds, become a college professor, become a recluse, and the promote global warming to the ignorant masses?

Is algore worried that his GoreBel prize will be in danger?

Has he told Chad about all this?

Oh...Chicken little, where are you?

Does Al Gore mean that Barack Obama may try to steal the election as he did in 2000?

Take a look at what’s going on in Ohio right now, and figure the odds on getting any kind of meaningful results out of them before Inauguration Day.

A Federal Judge ordered just today that the “homeless” shall be allowed to register to vote using a frickin’ park bench as an address.

Do the math...
