Al Gore confuses Bush with Bubba

Posted by: ST on December 6, 2006 at 6:39 pm

That’s the only conclusion I could come to after reading this tripe (emphasis added):

ABC News’ Teddy Davis Reports: Calling the Iraq war “the worst strategic mistake in the entire history of the United States” and “worse than a civil war,” former Vice President Gore urged President Bush to find a way to get U.S. troops out of Iraq “as quickly as possible without making the situation worse” while appearing this morning on NBC’s “Today.”

“I would urge the President to try to separate out the personal issues of being blamed in history for his mistake and instead recognizing that it is not about him. It’s about our country,” Gore said in an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer.

Bill Clinton and Al Gore What the hell? Excuse me, but where on earth did Al Snore get the idea that the President was more concerned with his legacy than whether or not we win in Iraq? The only president in recent history obsessed with his legacy was the chap Gore was second in charge to: former Prez. Bill Clinton. Clinton was (and is) so obsessed with keeping the lid on his administration’s counterterrorism failures (afterall, the 9-11 Commission all but gave him a pass) that his lawyers demanded that ABC not just change but pull the 9-11 docudrama Path to 9-11 because he thought it unfairly portrayed the Clinton record on counterterrorism (it didn’t). This is also the same guy who expected softballs about his charity work be thrown at him when Fox News’ Chris Wallace did an interview with him back in September. When the topic of the interview switched to the Clinton administration’s record on counterterrorism, Clinton became red-faced and essentially accused Chris Wallace of a ‘conservative set-up’ – simply because Wallace asked him the same type of tough questions about Al Qaeda under his watch that he did of then-Sec. of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

Get a clue, Al.

BTW, here are some clips from that Lauer interview with Gore. A partial transcript is available via Mark Finkelstein at Newsbusters.

      Clinton was nothing more than a used car salesman who sweet talked his way into the W.H. He’s gotten a pass on 9/11, Somalia, N. Korea, you name it. If the press could have given him a pass on his perjury, they would have.

      Not surprising. I saw a film clip of Clinton and Gore getting a tour of Monticello right after their election win in 1992. Now, in Monticello, there are a number of portraits of the Founding Fathers. Gore stared at one of them for a while and finally had to ask the tour guide whose portrait it was. “George Washington”, replied the guide. Even Clinton was rolling his eyes at that one. :))

      You know, Al…they guy on the $1 bill????

      So if he doesn’t recognize George Washington, it’s easy to understand why he confuses Clinton with Bush.

      What. An. Idiot.

      I’ll be a ready and willing listener to Al’s pontifications just about the same time I’m ready to be lectured by the French about morality, muslims about religious tolerance and Barry Bonds about humility.

      This is not a healthy. You lose an election, and spend your time undermining the president. I didn’t see Bob Dole or Bush Senior do it to Clinton. Not sure why Gore and Kerry think they are entitled to do this, or why the MSM continues to support it.

      Easy one, G Monster. Bush Senior and Dole put the good of the country above personal advancement. Gore and Kerry have it the other way around.

      or why the MSM continues to support it.

      Because they’re just rooting for their team. Or more accurately, rooting against a team they hate.

      And they, Gore & Kerry, would have you think that they have what’s best for the country in their ideas. What’s best for this country is neither of these to imbecillic children ever get that close to the presidency again. – Lorica
