November 18, 2002 -- Al Gore says he's not sure he'll run for president in 2004, but he sure sounds like a candidate - blasting President Bush for a "catastrophic" economic policy, a "horrible" foreign policy and an "immoral" position on environmental issues.

It's obvious he's running. My only question is whether he's moved to the left of Mao yet?

Let's see: The Gorebatross doesn't like tax cuts, the war on terrorism, and oil drilling in Alaska. They were such winning issues this fall that his party suffered an unprecedented drubbing at the polls. And in reponse to this disaster, the Gorebatross blasts Bush policies. The bulk of the tax cuts haven't even taken effect yet, the war on terrorism has made substantial progress but is still far from won, and there's been no ecological catastrophe in Alaska. In other words, the jury is still out about the Bush record. For the Gorebatross then, its not about laying out alternative policies for the American people to consider; its about politics for politics sake. The American people heard your message and that of your party, Al. As the Dems so fondly said back in 1998 and throwing their own words back at you now, "Its time to move on!!!"

Al, you have zero chance of ever being President. Now go hug a tree, and get over 2000.

Hu Jintao would beat the Gorebatross hands down in this country in a landslide. At least the ChiCom isn't full of it like SoreLoserman is to this day about what happened back in 2000.

It's funny, when I see a thread with a title like "Gore Blasts Bush Policies" these days, I click it open with a big grin on my face. They might as well be humor threads.

What a difference a couple weeks make...this stuff would have made me furious once.

"Our country is headed for very deep trouble," Gore tells Time magazine. "I wish it were not so, but I believe that with all my heart. I think that our foreign policy, based on an openly proclaimed intention to dominate the world, is a recipe for getting our country in some of the worst trouble it's ever been in."

The ex-vice president also said Bush's economic plan has "zero chance of working."

After we take care of Iraq and the economy is booming again, I'd say Algore has "zero chance" of getting the Dem nomination.
After getting knocked on their arses on Nov. 5, the Dems are finishing the job for us by burying themselves with their own words.

I can just hear his voice, can't you? "I wish it were not so, but I believe with all my heart..." He must not have been on the Information Super Highway lately. Bush is Boss.

When was the last time you heard Gore (or any Democrat, for that matter) say anything positive or uplifting about
our country? Everything is either the worst it's ever been
or a crisis. Add that to the fact they never offer alternative solutions and it's no wonder that they continue
to be the minority party.

I hear he's going to be on Today w/Katie Couric twice this week?? And on Leno, SNL, etc.?? They really are all working him up and I'd be prepared to use the Clintoon's administration's true record on economics and terrorism against him. He's a sitting duck if he'd be called on his bs statements.

Shut up Al. If you had stolen the election, we would be living with a different major city going up in a mushroom cloud each week, while you scold us to tolerate and understand why they hate us.

Actually, I think Gore will get the 2004 nomination. The Democrats will toss him up as a sacrificial lamb, saving their more promising figures for 2008. They must know that they couldn't beat Dubya in 2004 if they nominated Christ Himself. (Of course, Christ would never accept the Democratic nomination, but that's another story.)

Is this AlGore talking or Pat Buchanan?

Gore whining about the people outside his window during the recounts.

One thing we want to leave you with to remember us by is another excerpt from Barbara Walters interview with Al Gore and family, which airs tonight on 20/20 at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 p.m. CT (check your local listings).

The following exchanges, while sure to interest Note readers and historians, actually won't be part of tonight's 20/20 broadcast, so you can read them only here and now:

WALTERS: I'm not sure that people realize that while you were in the residence of the Vice President [during the Florida recount] there were crowds of people outside screaming at you. What was that all about?

AL GORE: Well, this was the Republican response to what was happening during that 36-day period, and they organized busloads of people that came and stood outside the house all day and all night screaming at the top of their lungs.

WALTERS: What, "Get out!"?

TIPPER GORE: Things like that, yes, and, and sometimes … things that we don't want to say on your program, and, some people saw that they were buses from "churches," but it was organized. The one thing that, that they did mainly was reach the bedrooms of our children, and Albert was still in school locally, and trying to study, so we rearranged, you know, they … kids moved to a different part of the house, and I was trying to think of a way that we could kind of laugh about this since obviously it was out of our control, there wasn't anything anybody could do so I got all the boom boxes in the house and … I remember sort of what the government did with Noriega … I thought we'd try that, and I aimed them at, toward, you know, where the crowd …

WALTERS: The crowd?

TIPPER GORE: … And I put nature sounds on and turned it all the way up. And at least the kids laughed.

AL GORE: There were a few, more than a few who supported us and were offended by the organized chanting round the clock who came out on the other street corner during the day to express their support with signs, and … You know, emotions were running high throughout the country and it was just an unprecedented time.

KARENNA GORE: Well, when we were in the Vice President's house during the recount, it was it was very intense. And one of the things I remember is that there was a … an organized effort by, I don't know whether it was the RNC or it was … it was right-wing groups, it was definitely Bush-campaign-oriented effort to bus in people to have a sort of siege at the Vice President's house, and, so, they were all lining there, screaming, and it was kind of an assortment of groups. I mean, some of them were anti, um, were anti-abortion groups, and some of them were pro-gun groups, and some of them … they all had their different signs. But they were all screaming, "Get out of Cheney's house," the whole time. And I just remember being there next to my dad, because I went for a run, and I ran back through them, and I was very upset when I came into the house. And my whole attitude was, like, "We've got to fight back harder. And where are our crowds?" And my dad, I'll never forget his response. He said, "We have to do what's best for the country, and it is not good for the country to have this kind of divisiveness. And he was on the phone, really calling off the dogs. There were people who wanted to fan the … the flames of the racial issue and have real unrest. And he was on the phone asking them not to, because of what was best for the country not because of what was best for him politically. And that's really who he is.

WALTERS: Do you remember the crowds outside screaming?

KRISTEN GORE: The crowds that were screaming outside our house, you know, "Get out of Cheney's house." And other things … of that nature, were really upsetting. It was difficult … It was just very … upsetting that someone would … yell those things at us. It felt … we felt sort of like … trapped in this … you know, little house with all these people yelling mean things. It's no fun. You know, whether you're a child of the person who they're directed at, or anyone else. It … it wasn't a good situation.

WALTERS: Were you scared?

KRISTEN GORE: I was scared that the truth was not going to come out. That's what I was.

This is, like, a real interview? Roflmao. Both Gore and Bush have done a great job of living up to my bad and good assessments of them and their character (well, lack of character in goron's case.)
