Where would we be without Algore? The Union Leader reports on Al's most recent NH appearance where he (and this is the unexpected part) blasted Bush about Iraq. It's always nice to hear something new from the Left, isn't it?
Now, I have to admit that I agree with at least one thing he said:
“This [the liberation of Iraq] was done in our name. This changes for many in the world the meaning of America, the image of America,”
Yep. It sure was done in our name and it most certainly changes "the image of America." We are no long viewed as the limp-wristed namby-pamby paper tigers of the Clinton/Gore years. Now our enemies see us for what we really are: A People who will always fight reluctantly, but will always fight when necessary.
One more thought on this article. This next quote illustrates at least one of two things. Either Algore really said something to this effect, or the author of the article is to 'blame.' Here's what I'm talking about:
The speech was in direct contrast to Gore’s opening remarks, which saw light humor, as the former vice president poked fun at getting used to being just a citizen and the closeness of the 2000 Presidential election. (emphasis added)
Either Algore (or the reporter) seems to be condescending towards being just a citizen. That is possibly the most insulting thing I have seen written or heard spoken in quite some time. The idea that being just a citizen of this great country is something 'less' than being an elected official is absolutely bassackwards. How dare ANYONE take such a low opinion of all us, common, unwashed, just citizens?! Perhaps there is some misunderstanding of from whence power is derived under our form of government. If there's any doubt, try reading the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence, Gettysburg Address, or any of the personal writings of our Founding Fathers.
I think that this shows just exactly how the elite in this country (whether Algore himself, the reporter or both) view the Rulers (a.k.a. People) of the United States of America. Something everyone might want to bear in mind come November.
