Gore a No-Show at Capitol Hill Thursday
FOX News ^ | June 25, 2009

Posted on 06/25/2009 10:28:35 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said as the list of undecided lawmakers narrowed, she thought it was unnecessary to impose on former Vice President Gore's schedule to travel to Washington when he could instead continue coordinating efforts from Tennessee.

"It was a question of what was energy efficient for the vice president," Pelosi said at her weekly news conference Thursday, explaining the absence. "We were narrowing the list of the undecided and thought perhaps another occasion we could call upon his time to come here."

Pelosi added that it was more energy efficient for Gore to continue coordinating efforts from Tennessee.

Senior Democratic sources told FOX News that in addition to the time commitment issue, they thought it was better if Gore worked the phones with targeted lawmakers. Gore is specifically reaching out to more liberal lawmakers who don't think the bill goes far enough, the sources said.

But speculation is swirling that Gore's presence would have been radioactive and could have caused more of a problem, a source told FOX News.

Translation- The big democratic donors jet was not available to fly Gore to D.C., and there was no way in HEL^ that he would take a commercial airline.

As passionate as he is about his global warming BS, he just could not board a plane with common folks on it.

I thought it was 100 yards, the length of a football field. Also, the Goreacle has a jet ski on the back, is it solar powered?

Since when did Pelosi care about energy efficiency? Didn't she have a hissy fit over her government provided personal jet being too small? She now has a full sized 747 or whatever gas guzzler to haul herself and her royal servants around, no doubt refitted with a full sized royal bathroom and royal private suite.

She cares about her carbon footprint alright...

So he decided to help save the environment by staying home?

Yep. Put "Gore houseboat" into your search engine.

To: Oldeconomybuyer; All

As will ALL things the Dims do, it’s about controlling the image of things and not their substance; it has nothing to do the idea that their disasterous energy bill will be any less to scary Al’s liking.

They are keeping Al away because they know the image of Al is toxic to the support they are trying to trick out of the Congress.

They know that their are just enough stupid RINOS who will vote with them if things do not appear to be what they are.

If the GOP leaders had spines, they’d know Gore’s absence reflects a weakness on the part of the Dims, and they’d oppose them even more.
