  • Ad hits Gore's green lifestyle

    Al Gore has been unfairly accused of unsound environmental practices, according to Kaylee Kreider, his spokeswoman. The former vice president actually leads an eco-conscious green life — complete with solar energy and geothermal heating. His critics say he's attempting "to rewrite history." In question is an advertising campaign that begins today by the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI). The broadcast spot says Mr. Gore's Tennessee residence uses 20 times more energy than the average American household — a claim based on damning information released last year by the Tennessee Center for Policy Research, which examined Mr. Gore's utility bills. "The data...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — With roughly three months until the first wave of voters weigh in on the 2008 presidential candidates, Al Gore supporters are stepping up their efforts to persuade the former vice president to jump into the race. Draftgore.com published an ad in the New York Times Wednesday with an open letter to the 2000 Democratic presidential nominee strongly urging he throws his hat into the ring. "You say you have fallen out of love with politics, and you have every reason to feel that way," the letter states. "But we know you have not fallen out of love...

    ANY day now, global warming will change from the world's biggest scare to the world's biggest joke. In fact, that moment could have come already. Last Monday, to be exact. That's when we saw a beaming Al Gore waddle on stage to the roar of Hollywood's dream-makers to get his Oscar for An Inconvenient Truth. It should have been for the former US vice president -- now the world's most famous global warming alarmist -- his finest hour. Here he was, receiving film's highest honour for his smash documentary, in which he warns that within a century the seas will...

    THE double Oscar win for An Inconvenient Truth, former US vice-president Al Gore's expanded slide-show on global warming, could spur grassroots support for the fight against climate change, environmental advocates say. That was because a movie, especially one that many people had seen on home video, took the issue beyond the realm of distant policymakers and put it on a more personal footing, according to Carl Pope, executive director of the Sierra Club. "The funny thing about the Oscars is, they're very intimate - people watch them in their living rooms," Mr Pope said. "Global warming has seemed abstract, distant,...

    SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Former Vice President Al Gore is basking in the global spotlight for nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize and an Oscar, but a growing number of Democrats want him to make another bid for the presidency. He says he is interested in a "different kind of campaign to try to change enough minds" to solve the global-warming problem, but that doesn't stop people from asking. Mr. Gore spoke to 1,500 Silicon Valley leaders gathered Friday for the annual "State of the Valley" conference, hosted by Joint Venture: Silicon Valley Network. The audience sent the Democrat questions...

    FORMER US vice president Al Gore, now better known as an environmental activist, today praised Victoria's effort to tackle climate change. Mr Gore met Victorian Premier Steve Bracks and Environment Minister John Thwaites for an hour today. The politician turned activist filmmaker gave his endorsement to Labor's initiatives on climate change as they fight for a third term in office at the November 25 Victorian election. "The initiatives that have been laid out here are quite impressive to me," Mr Gore said to reporters after the meeting. Mr Gore likened the situation in Australia to that in the US, saying...

    While Al Gore has returned to the public eye with his global warming documentary "An Inconvenient Truth” and is being mentioned as a candidate for president in 2008, the public's basic views of him have changed little from four years ago, a Gallup poll reveals. The June 23-25 poll found that 48 percent of Americans had a favorable opinion of the former vice president, and 45 percent had an unfavorable opinion. These results were about the same as from the last four times Gallup asked Americans to rate Gore, in 2002 and 2003, suggesting that "there are no signs that...

    Let me begin by stating for the record that I am not a scientist. I have not spent my life researching Planetary Climatology, and I really don’t have any personal insight into the mysteries of the earth’s climate cycles or even any personal opinion about the pseudoscientific claims in Al Gore’s Gospel of Doom, based on his politically motivated global warming via capitalist-pig doctrine. Of course, this makes me just as qualified to speak on the subject as Al Gore, who also is not a scientist or one who is any more in touch with earth’s many mysteries than the...

    June is busting out all over and, so it seems, is Democratic interest in erstwhile presidential candidate Albert Gore, Jr. Yes, Al Gore, who in his last quest for the White House learned the hard way that a kiss is usually just a kiss, but a sigh can sometimes be more consequential. Al’s been all over lately. From a fluff piece in Time Magazine to an appearance on Saturday Night Live, he was even the toast of the Cannes Film Festival where he allegedly spoke fluent French. He’s been promoting “An Inconvenient Truth,” which is either the name of his...

    Former second lady Tipper Gore is urging her husband, Al, to challenge Hillary Clinton for the 2008 presidential nomination - in what may be a score-settling move against the woman Mrs. Gore has long regarded as "difficult" and overly ambitious. "If he were going to run in the future, of course I would support him," Mrs. Gore told ABC News' Claire Shipman on Tuesday. "I think he'd be a fantastic president. He already got a majority of votes of people in this country once, and so that says something." Relations between Mrs. Gore and the first lady-turned-presidential front-runner have never...

    FORMER US vice president Al Gore plans to train 1000 messengers he hopes will spread out across the country and present a slide show about global warming that captures the essence of his Hollywood documentary and book. Mr Gore, a Democrat, said today that by the end of the northern summer he would start a bipartisan education campaign to train the messengers. They will give a version of his slide show on global warming featured in the film An Inconvenient Truth and book of the same name. "This moment cannot be allowed to pass," Mr Gore said in New York....

    Message from Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean: " Al Gore is demonstrating exactly the kind of courage and moral clarity that Democrats will bring when we take back Congress and win elections up and down the ballot this year." In a message posted on the DNC's "Kicking Ass" blog Wednesday, Dean urged his fellow Democrats to keep fighting for action on "global warming." "Facts are facts," Dean said. "Global warming is happening, and it threatens our very existence." Dean said Al Gore - braving "right wing efforts to silence him" - is giving voice to "one of the great...

    Surely nobody would be a charlatan, who could afford to be sincere. Ralph Waldo Emerson The French kiss Al Gore received from the mainstream media in Cannes over his shlockumentary fiction "An Inconvenient Truth" exceeded even the chronic revulsion that is symbiotic with all things Al Gore. The over-the-top fearmongering Gore regurgitates about "global warming" conveniently ignores far more than it presumes to expose. 1. The "debate" over global warming remains just that ... a debate. 2. Not "everyone" believes in the gospel according to Gore (any more than everyone embraces Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Gaia or the Tao). Most reports...

    A study by two economists found that the growth of the Fox cable news network in the late 1990s may have significantly increased the GOP’s share of the vote in the 2000 Presidential election and delivered Florida to George Bush. "Our estimates imply that Fox News convinced 3 to 8 percent of its audience to shift its voting behavior towards the Republican Party, a sizable media persuasion effect," said Stefano DellaVigna of the University of California at Berkeley and Ethan Kaplan of Stockholm University. In Florida, they estimate that the Fox effect may have produced more than 10,000 additional votes...

    Bill Clinton invoked Scripture and Al Gore warned of the looming calamity of climate change as the former president and vice president appeared onstage to honor an outgoing Democratic Party official. Democrats sentimental for a return of the Clinton-Gore political era saw their wish briefly fulfilled Monday night at a dinner for Democratic National Committee official Maureen White. The two did not appear onstage together, joining committee Chairman Howard Dean at different moments in the program. Gore was accompanied by his wife, Tipper Gore. Speaking to the 500 donors who'd paid at least $1,000 to attend the dinner, Clinton urged...

    Hillary Clinton made a fundamental decision in 2002 to support the invasion of Iraq. In doing so, she sought the center of American politics, reacting to issues much as her husband had throughout his ascent to the presidency. But times have changed, and the center is not what it used to be. In the highly partisan and charged environment of politics in 2006, what has become of the centrist doctrines that reelected Bill Clinton and brought George W. Bush, the compassionate conservative, to the White House? Is the center still the place to aim in getting votes? At the White...

    Al Gore got an endorsement for a second presidential bid in 2008 – from a Virginia congressman who blamed the Iraq war on American Jews. Questioned about the contest, Democratic Rep. Jim Moran said: "I'd like to see him get into the race." "He won the popular vote in 2000, and I think he's even stronger and more committed," Moran said yesterday on C-SPAN's Washington Journal. "But you know, he's got his own life and it's his decision to make." A spokesman for Gore had no immediate reaction to Moran's comments. Moran is not known as one of the most...

    The more Al Gore opens his mouth, the more grateful Americans should be that he didn't win the presidency in 2000. Normally his rants sound like sour grapes and can be ignored, or relegated to the Jimmy Carter school of bitterness, but not lately. Last Sunday, Gore spoke to the Jeddah Economic Forum in Saudi Arabia. He trashed his country on the soil of one of the most repressive regimes on earth - a monarchy that incubated 15 of the 19 hijackers who killed 3,000 of his fellow citizens on Sept. 11, 2001, and is the home country of Osama...

    The Muslim-Danish cartoon controversy has provided an excellent teaching opportunity in which the West demonstrates to the Arab world how even insulting/silly/opportunistic/sycophantic speech is allowed expression in our world in the belief that Truth ultimately will prevail. Exhibit A: Al Gore. The former vice president spoke in Saudi Arabia last weekend at the 2006 Jeddah (not to be confused with Jihadist, though we're not sure why) Economic Forum, where he bashed the U.S. and made Kumbaya noises about all just-getting-along. Which is fine. We'd all like to just get along, but could the Saudis go first? Perhaps Gore, instead of...

    This year's Martin Luther King Day celebration was a wild and woolly collection of left-wing blather. In Washington, showing remarkable feats of amnesia that he was ever vice president in a corrupt administration, Al Gore gave a speech claiming President Bush was a law-breaking president and his illegal actions a threat to the survival of our democracy, an extraordinary accusation for even this man to make, given the same policies were executed by the Clinton-Gore administration. In New Orleans, Mayor Ray Nagin announced that God wanted New Orleans to be a "chocolate" city again. When challenged that this might make...

    Presidential press secretary Scott McClellan today refused to acknowledge the fact that then-Vice President Al Gore led a Clinton administration program that potentially could have bugged every phone in the country, this after the Democrat hammered President Bush Monday for allowing wiretaps of suspected terrorists. The "Clipper Chip" project would have placed a chip on new phones, allowing the federal government the means to eavesdrop. "Isn't that worth pointing out to the American people, after [Gore] accused President Bush of breaking the law and violating the Constitution?" asked WND. "I think you just did," responded McClellan. "This is an administration...

    WASHINGTON - They are two of the nation's highest profile Democrats, now taking aim at the White House. Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., told a largely African-American audience in New York Monday that Republicans run the House of Representatives like a "plantation" where dissent is squelched. As for the White House, Clinton said: "We have cronyism, we have incompetence. I predict to you that this administration will go down in history as one of the worst that has ever governed our country." Her words came just hours after former Vice President Al Gore, in Washington, accused the president of repeatedly breaking...

    When Al Gore ran for president in 2000 he said “our Constitution is a living and breathing document” that changes its meaning over time. This week we learned that among the things changing in Gore’s Constitution is the war power. It meant one thing when Bill Clinton was president, but means another thing now. Seven years ago, then-Vice President Gore supported Clinton in launching a war Congress didn’t authorize. Now, he says the Constitution denies President Bush the power merely to intercept an enemy’s communications in and out of the U.S.--without permission from a federal judge--in the midst of a...

    Former Vice President Al Gore today invoked Martin Luther King’s legacy in a wide-ranging attack on President Bush’s handling of war on terror—accusing the president of breaking the law and calling the war in Iraq a “colossal mistake.” Gore delivered an animated and passionate speech that latest nearly 90 minutes. His address was co-sponsored by the American Constitution Society and Liberty Coalition. MoveOn.org heavily promoted the event to its members. Much of Gore’s speech was devoted to Bush’s national security initiatives, including the domestic eavesdropping program that Democrats have tried to seize as an issue for the 2006 midterm elections....
