"I'm Al Gore...I used to be the next president of the United States" (LEVEL5 BARF ALERT ~my title~)
Daytona Beach News Urinal ^ | 11.04.02 | RAY WEISS

Posted on 11/04/2002 4:57:46 AM PST by RedBloodedAmerican

DAYTONA BEACH -- Former Vice President Al Gore stepped to the podium at Bethune-Cookman College on Sunday looking to supercharge fellow Democrat Bill McBride's campaign for governor.

But another election, the closest and most contested in Florida and the nation's history, remained on the minds of many in the crowd of 250. Gore still gets their vote almost two years later. Under an old oak tree, supporters held signs that read: "Welcome President Gore!" and chanted: "Gore in Four."

Sans his college-professor beard and most of his post-election girth, Gore tried to diffuse the lingering anger and despair.

"I'm Al Gore," he said introducing himself. "I used to be the next president of the United States."

He went on to joke about his life out of public office, days of riding in rental cars and eating at Shoney's roadside restaurants, before getting serious about the Bush era in both Washington, D.C., and Florida.

"Everything that should be up is down, and everything that is down should be up," he said, referring to unemployment, the stock market and budget surpluses that have become deficits. "Are you better off than you were four years ago?"

Again, Gore interjected humor. "I'm concerned," he said in the middle of a cross-state swing for McBride. "I was the first one laid off."

With McBride posters and banners behind him but the candidate himself campaigning elsewhere, Gore blamed Jeb Bush for Florida's "controversies, problems and divisions" that followed the bitter 2000 presidential election.

"Gov. Bush prevented thousands of qualified voters from voting. He'll try to discourage you from voting again," he told the crowd, an even mix of whites and blacks. "I urge you to look at the economy and what's happening to education. Florida is rated 49th overall. How long is that going to go on? Bill McBride wants to make education the No. 1 priority. He stands for inclusion. In two days, you can make a change. The name of the game is turnout."

Looking out at a "Florida, a Sunny Place for Shady Elections" sign, Gore said that the 2000 presidential election in Florida should prove to everyone that every vote really does count.

"If you hear anyone say that one vote doesn't count, tell them to come see me," Gore said, smiling. "Whatever the issue, the stakes are high and the contrasts are clear. On the environment. Health care. Civil rights. And now, we have justice."

Gore shook a fist in the air and shouted: "Can you stand for justice?" The crowd cheered.

The man who was almost president, ridiculed in the past for his stiffness as a speaker, was calmer and smoother than the last time he campaigned in Florida. On Sunday, Gore was officially working to help get McBride elected. But after the speech, Gore spent 30 minutes posing for photographs and signing autographs, an indication that Bush/Gore, the sequel, was a possibility in 2004.

"I have not ruled out running again. But I'm going to wait and look at all the factors," Gore said. "It's not a personal issue about 2000. (Right now) it's about 2002 and what's going to happen in Florida the next four years."


Ex-Vice President Al Gore returned to Daytona Beach, Florida, where he attempted to steal the Presidential election
2 years ago. All 250 citizens who voted for him turned out for the event.

Aghh! I missed this opportunity! This is the most liberal county in the State (IMO), Gore supposedly carried close to 70% of the vote in 2000 here.

Florida is rated 49th overall

We know this is a flat out lie. Starting to think that Gore's speech writers are you-know-who on FR....

"I'm Al Gore," he said introducing himself. "I used to be the next president of the United States."

AlGore has graduated from being an insufferable ass to being completely delusional -- I was under the impression that to be President of the United States, one had to take the oath of office. I don't recall the Prince of Dorkness doing that.

What is REALLY scary is that this useless idiot was actually the 'next president of the US' for a short while until all of the 'legal' votes were counted and until the legal system concluded that he had, in fact, lost. Since he cannot accept the 'rule of law', like his buddy Bill, he doesn't qualify even for the position of dog-catcher.....

Yeah, "gop4me" has to make a living somehow.

I love this quote:

Gore shook a fist in the air and shouted: "Can you stand for justice?" The crowd cheered.

The Gorebot and his mindless minions wouldn't know justice if it was stuck on their nose like a hanging chad.

Utterly contemptible.

And that they excluded the military vote shows their stance on having a military. If Gore were Pres now, OBL would be U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan.

Gov. Bush prevented thousands of qualified voters from voting.

When, WHERE? More than 2 years hence, and I am STILL waiting for proof. Just because "they" said it happened is NOT proof. Tell me some more lies, Albert. Jerk.

In Volusia County, it was true that some blacks were turned away from the polls. This was headline news here.

However, what failed to make the news here (but made it elsewhere) was that it was found out that these "disenfranchised student voters" had FAILED TO REGISTER TO VOTE, and that is why they were turned away.

DUH!

Turned away, WHY? Because they went to the WRONG polling station, THAT'S WHY. I'd get turned away, too if I went to the wrong place to vote. That is NOT disenfranchising.

My aunt in Tennessee is kin to "Little Al". She used to baby sit sweet "little Al". Her children ALL voted Republican. Wonder why!
When I visited them the last time I asked if this was so and they affirmed it to be true.

Yeah, with Gore in town, many of those FL voters who voted for Buchanan in Nov. 2000 may take Clinton's advice to "get it right this year" -- and now vote "AL GORE" for this FL Gov race.

Al Gore? I can't get past the lisp. The way he talks is like listening to fingernails slowly screech across a black board. His voice sounds like a flaming queer that has a brain that only works at 33 & 1/3.

Make sure you remind everyone, when Dec 7 rolls around and the lawsuits are still flying in close races, who started this crap in the first place - just because he couldn't stand that he lost by the rules that were in place throughout the game.

Hopefully, when he finally "blows," it will be live on national TV for the whole world to see.

Volusia County, Florida, Presidential vote in 2000:

Gore: 97,313
Bush: 82,368

These figures are from The World Almanac, which doesn't say how many voted for Nader, Buchanan, Browne, or other minor candidates in the county. Gore's margin was slightly less than Clinton's over Dole in 1996. Percentagewise, Gore's margin in Volusia Co. was much less than in Broward, Gadsden, Palm Beach, or Leon counties.

Even McBride didn't want to be seen with him. Watched the McBride/Clinton rally replay on CSpan last night. Lousy speeches by lousy men. It was outside and the lighting was so bad you couldn't see the faces of the speakers. Sounded like a very small turnout.

My husband went to the University of the South (Sewanee) with AlBore's cousin. Even his cousin couldn't stand him (and Albert was a mere boy at the time)and called him a sniveling little liar. He entire life has been nothing but lies....how much time did he really spend in Tennessee? About as much time as Hitlery spent in New York??

Where's a SORE LOSERMAN sign when you need one? Americans used to know that being a bad loser was a sign of bad character. Lies, more lies and press lies.

From the looks of this photo an old saying comes to mind -

"You're pink if you drink."

Unless it is really cold outside, Al looks like he's been hitting the bottle pretty good. That blotchy pink skin is synonymous with a hang-over. Maybe Al needs a stint at Betty Ford before he runs for prez again :)

Gore shook a fist in the air and shouted: "Can you stand for justice?" The crowd cheered.

He dares yell this in the state where the jackbooted thugs of his administration ripped away young Elian at gunpoint? Well, I see he's living up to the Democrap standard for brazen shamelessness.

"I have not ruled out running again. But I'm going to wait and look at all the factors," Gore said.

Translation: I'm going to wait until I can see whether I can actually get anybody, even in my own party, to support me.

It's rather instructive that all of the D's visiting Florida are always shown surrounded by black people. Apparently they've figured that all of the white people who're likely to vote have already made up their minds, and that McBride is losing that race.

I don't know anything about the Hispanic vote, but I suppose it's already pretty much set as well, one way or the other -- and the McBride is still losing regardless.

As it would be for blacks who are likely to vote.

The D strategy would therefore seem to center on getting out the black vote among those who are unlikely to vote.

Nothing new here, of course. But seems more blatant than I've seen it in the past.

Call me cynical, but I think the real agenda is that they're setting the stage for this year's lawsuits, and the "Disenfranchisement" campaign for '04.

B-CC where Al visited is listed in the HBCU link on the Nation of Islam website. Sheer coincidence, I am sure. Maybe they provided security for his visit.

how much time did he really spend in Tennessee?

The fact that he was raised in a D.C. penthouse apartment makes his phoney Tennessee cornpone accent all the more laughable.
