The GOP minority on the EPW committee agreed GoreBull Al's request for an unprecedented 30 minute opening statement.

The GOP minority on the EPW committee then agreed to waive the 48 hour rule in favor of allowing GoreBull Al to submit his testimony 24 hours before the hearing.

As of 8pm ET Tuesday evening, the testimony still has not been received by EPW, a clear violation of committee rules.

The word on Capitol Hill says EPW is not to expect to see Gore’s testimony until Wednesday (March 21) -- the day of the hearing.

Barton waives his opening statement in order to add the time to the questioning period.

After asking for a waiver on the 48 hour rule, getting it for 24 hrs., Gore then asked for a TWO HOUR period to present his opening remarks. Special treatment? HAHAHA

Breaking on Fox: Al Gore will arrive two hours late for Congressional hearings on Global Warming so he will not have to hear the Republicans' arguments against him. Gore refused to supply Congress with a summary of his statement 48 hours before hearing as required so the Repubs could not formulate questions.

Breaking.

As much as I despise the critter, Dingel is a GoreBull Warming skeptic. So I'd be suprised to see him lobbing softball questions at Gore.

I just saw on the tv that Al Gore refuses to hear GOP statement on global warming!!! OMG

I'd stay and type, Mo1, but I have people coming over at noon and am picking up the house and making lunch, etc.

This makes Gore look like a jerk, imo. And maybe the Republicans should walk out of the room when Gore walks in!

OKAY GANG...

I just heard Major Garrett talking about how Gore refused to sit at the witness table because he heard that the GOP was going to have a speech countering his opinion.

SOOOOOOOO..Gore refuses even sit in the room when a different take is made.

DEMS refuse to debate on FOX NEWS.


Can we all agree NOW that the DEMS are WIMPS, COWARDS, AND WEINIES??

Nope. Wrong. GoreBull Warming Al wants to outlaw the internal combustion engine within 20 years. That's a great deal differant than "doing away with the automobile industry". Get your facts straight.
