Quote:

It is therefore essential that even as we focus on the fateful choice, the voters must make this November that we simultaneously search for ways to sharply reduce the extraordinary danger that we face with the current leadership team in place. It is for that reason that I am calling today for Republicans as well as Democrats to join me in asking for the immediate resignations of those immediately below George Bush and Dick Cheney who are most responsible for creating the catastrophe that we are facing in Iraq.

We desperately need a national security team with at least minimal competence because the current team is making things worse with each passing day. They are endangering the lives of our soldiers, and sharply increasing the danger faced by American citizens everywhere in the world, including here at home. They are enraging hundreds of millions of people and embittering an entire generation of anti-Americans whose rage is already near the boiling point.

We simply cannot afford to further increase the risk to our country with more blunders by this team. Donald Rumsfeld, as the chief architect of the war plan, should resign today. His deputies Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith and his intelligence chief Stephen Cambone should also resign. The nation is especially at risk every single day that Rumsfeld remains as Secretary of Defense.

Condoleeza Rice, who has badly mishandled the coordination of national security policy, should also resign immediately.

George Tenet should also resign. I want to offer a special word about George Tenet, because he is a personal friend and I know him to be a good and decent man. It is especially painful to call for his resignation, but I have regretfully concluded that it is extremely important that our country have new leadership at the CIA immediately.




WOW!

Link doesn't work.

Someone probably remembered what an ass Gore is and took it down.

yeah, it stopped working for a second. It's working again now though.

A good read too. He makes some very good points.

Gore could've made a great President, it just sucks he was such a lousy campaigner. Also it sucks too many Americans only look at superficial charisma and don't pay attention to the content of differing views. I'll tell you something though.....there's gonna be a lot more blacks and hispanics voting in Florida this November than four years ago, a lot more everyone voting for that matter.

Quote:

During Ronald Reagan's Presidency, Secretary of Labor Ray Donovan was accused of corruption, but eventually, after a lot of publicity, the indictment was thrown out by the Judge. Donovan asked the question, "Where do I go to get my reputation back?" President Bush has now placed the United States of America in the same situation. Where do we go to get our good name back?

The answer is, we go where we always go when a dramatic change is needed. We go to the ballot box, and we make it clear to the rest of the world that what's been happening in America for the last four years, and what America has been doing in Iraq for the last two years, really is not who we are. We, as a people, at least the overwhelming majority of us, do not endorse the decision to dishonor the Geneva Convention and the Bill of Rights....





I hope Kerry gets a blowout win this November. It'd be a good way for the American people to apologize for the bullshit and indicate collective wish to make things better. I think this little "Christianity" hate organization is going to polarize the country for a while to come though.

It's true that Gore is an ass, but I know of no one who is wrong 100% of the time. In this case he made some very good points.


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

As I have been unable to access the speech, I don't know. I'll try again later.

The rebuttal is better.





Washington, DC?RNC Communications Director Jim Dyke issued the following statement today in response to a speech by former Vice President Al Gore attacking President Bush.

?Al Gore served as Vice President of this country for eight years. During that time, Osama Bin Laden declared war on the United States five times and terrorists killed US citizens on at least four different occasions including the first bombing of the World Trade Center, the attacks on Khobar Towers, our embassies in East Africa, and the USS Cole.?

?Al Gore?s attacks on the President today demonstrate that he either does not understand the threat of global terror, or he has amnesia.?

Gore's speech eloquently made points I agree with strongly.

I didn't fault the source. I merely said I like the rebuttal better.

How is that faulting the source?

Some of you try too hard.
