Gore is still yapping away.......

Recommended Posts

WILMINGTON, Del. — Former Vice President Al Gore said Thursday that some of the Bush administration's security measures in the past year amount to an "attack on civil liberties."

In his second strong criticism of administration policies this week -- he said Monday that moves toward war with Iraq harm the anti-terror effort -- Gore said "highly questionable" decisions are being made in the criminal justice system.

"What's going on nationally, with the attack on civil liberties, with American citizens in some cases just disappearing without right to counsel, without access to a lawyer, I think that is disgraceful," he said.

"I think we need to stand up for our principles in this country and stand up for what this nation represents, even as we face the terrible dangers that we have to confront in the world today."

Gore also decried any efforts to portray Democratic critics of the administration's homeland security plans and possible war with Iraq as unpatriotic or unconcerned about national security.

In Washington, meanwhile, the White House was trying to soften the tone of its disagreements with Senate Democrats who had objected strongly to President Bush saying the Senate's holding action on his homeland-security plans showed members were "not interested in the security of the American people."

In a speech in San Francisco on Monday, Gore said he was concerned that "the policy we are presently following with respect to Iraq has the potential to seriously damage our ability to win the war against terrorism and to weaken our ability to lead the world in this new century."

Some Democrats quickly distanced themselves from those comments by Gore, who narrowly lost the 2000 presidential race to Bush. However, others have been criticizing Bush more vigorously since then, including Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, who took issue with Bush's "not-interested" remark.

On Thursday, Gore also criticized the Justice Department under Attorney General John Ashcroft, saying FBI warnings about possible terrorist activity before the Sept. 11 attacks had been ignored.

"The warnings were there," Gore said. He contended the Justice Department had assigned only one FBI agent to monitor Osama bin Laden and the al-Qaida, while 13 FBI agents were assigned to eavesdrop on a brothel in New Orleans.

"Where is the sense of priorities?" asked Gore.

He commented Thursday at a fund-raising breakfast for Delaware attorney general candidate Carl Schnee.

"As we see nationally, some decisions being made in the criminal justice system that I think are highly questionable," Gore said. "It's more important than ever that the administration of justice be scrutinized carefully, and that races for attorney general like this one be the object of very, very close attention."

How many of you agree with this? As this article states more and more Democrats are distancing themselfs for Al "I invented the internet" Gore. He has a better chance at winnig the presidency race byt keeping his contradicting trap shut! why didnt he criticize or do anything about the FBI while president Clinton was getting his dick sucked? Now all of a sudden he speaks out, lets not forget most of the attacks on American interests came while Clinton was in office.

Gore's eye is set on Novemeber 2004. He knows his chances are thin against people like Daschle and Lieberman who are still in the political arena and are the front runners for the Democratic canidate for the presidency. The fact is he has no shot in hell because, like you said, the Democratic party is going to distance themselves from him. His criticism of Homeland security is a joke. It was during the Clinton administration that Sudan wanted to hand us Bin Laden on a silver platter and they refused to take him. We wouldn't be in this fucking mess if Clinton would have taken his balls out of Lewinsky's mouth and put them to use. During his term we had the first attack on the WTC, we had the bombing of the two embassies in Africa, we had the bombing of the USS Cole. All where linked to Al Queda and that administration knew it. After the embassy attacks what did that administration do, they blew up two of Bin Laden's training camps, woopty fucking do. After the attack on the Cole what did they do? We should have marched into Afghanistan right after the embassy bombing. Also our government, I know that the Bush administration has shared responsiblity on this too) knew as far back as two years ago that terrorist where planning something big within our borders. Who was in the oval office two years ago, Clinton. If it wasn't for Clinton and Gore we would probably still have our skyline and 3,000 less people to mourn.

For you liberals out there I'm not going off on this tirade because I'm republican, the Bush administration, like I said, has shared responsibility as well. I just can't stand fucking Gore criticizing Bush when him and Bubba fucked things themselves.
