"I'm going to say something controversial here," Gore said on Current TV, the channel he helped found. "Obama arrived in Denver at 2 p.m. today, just a few hours before the debate started. Romney did his debate prep in Denver. When you go to 5,000 feet, and you only have a few hours to adjust, I don't know ..."

Obama acted more like he was 6 feet under, not above 5,000 feet.

Romney’s not from there and he did VERY WELL. The libs will do anything to come up with an excuse for his shoddy performance. They are getting nervous.

Obama didn’t. End of story.

There might be something to this theory.

I read somewhere that smoking dope at higher altitudes gives the dope extra punch.

It might do the same for cocaine.....

Pretty sure the cabin pressure of AF1 is higher altitude than Denver... This explains an awful many really dumb decisions and statements!

Nope. Just something utterly stupid—as always.

Oh yeah.. oxygen deprivation and then a slow normalization after one pops the old altitude bubble. you nailed that one,
Al. OH by the way, would that explain your woody appearance? have a nice afterlife, ya puckhead.

Wasn’t it at Mile High Stadium IN Denver, four years ago, that the Greek columns and thousands of cheering fans received the “eloquent, dynamic, promising, hopeful, transformation, leader” Barack? Didn’t seem to be any negative clinical physiological effects at that time, why now Al?

LOL! Altitude, my oxygen bottle.

WHERE did Obama make his Mah-velous and Stupendous acceptance speech in 2008? That’s right, INVESCO Field, 5 miles northwest of Denver University!

Of course, the stadium WAS filled with 80,000 toked-up children blowing smoke in Obama’s direction in order to increase the air pressure for him.

The enablers are already lining up with the excuses, when Coulter really nailed it by pointing out he expects a standing ovation just for showing up and being cool. His whole life seems to be playing off this one thing.

But but but - Obama is a great athlete, shooting jumpers over NBA stars and doing laps with Reggie Love. Surely a little altitude wouldn’t tire him out.

Though Gore’s home world of Hoth is perpetually locked in ice, its tallest mountains are only a few hundred feet tall, so he is not only susceptible to warm temperatures but high altitudes.

So...this would mean that you're a vapid air-head, right, Al?

Gore said the curvature of the earth is so sharp at that altitude that Obama had all he could do to keep his balance. That’s why he continually raised his foot off the floor.

Obama spent three days at a golf resort in Henderson, Nevada before flying to Denver(5,200 feet). The elevation of Henderson is approximately 2,300 feet. Henderson may have actually been chosen for Obama’s debate prep because it would allow his body to gradually adjust to altitude.
