I love it when Al Gore speaks because it reminds the electorate how inept the Democrats are. Listening to Gore reminds me of a bowel movement: While it's not always the most pleasant experience, once it's over you feel so much better.
Today, Gore has written a piece in the NYT in which he praises President Bush's formidable debate skills. This is a subject Al knows very well because Bush kicked his ass in three straight debates in 2000. But I was thinking: Time must really heal all wounds because Gore is finally admitting this fact after four years of denial. Wow. That really is news.
Is Gore, by comparison, also trying to tell us that Bush is a legitimate President? Have I lost my mind? Perhaps.
The praise stops there in this piece. We get the same, old tired Democratic hot air. Bush is a 'catastrophic failure.' Funny, that's how I would describe the Clinton/Gore foreign policy. You guys allowed North Korea to get nuclear weapons, you sold top secret missile technology to China and you loosened airline security regulations which directly resulted in the hijackings on 9/11. Way to go, Al!
I keep digressing. Sorry.
The NYT piece is full of the typical smears from the Left, like Bush taking us to war on 'false premises.' Sure Al. You and Clinton, Kerry and Edwards, Kennedy and Lieberman, Chirac and Putin, Israel and Egpyt all agreed Saddam had WMD. How convenient for you and all your fellow pansy Democrats now to criticize Bush and the Republicans when things didn't exactly work out.
Way to be a statesman, Al. If I ever need debate tips, I'll call George W.
