The other night, I was talking about how the losing Democratic Presidential candidates become “bitter partisans” who spend the rest of their lives tearing others down to build themselves up.
I’d mentioned George McGovern & Jimmy Carter, but I left out Al Gore.
Gore, who I believe is still emotionally unstable from his 2000 loss to George W. Bush is back again for another one of his outbursts against the President and the United States. The former Vice President today spewed the typical left-wing lies that the United States was rounding up people or Arab descent “indiscriminately” and holding them "unforgivable" conditions.
This time, the crowd wasn’t his usual Democrats.com or MoveOn.org Kool-Aid drinkers, it was, according to an AP story, a “mainly Saudi audience” at the Jeddah Economic Forum in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
He also attacked the way Saudi visa applications had been blocked, saying "The thoughtless way in which visas are now handled, that is a mistake. The worst thing we can possibly do is to cut off the channels of friendship and mutual understanding between Saudi Arabia and the United States."
According to the AP article, Gore claims the Bush Administration is “playing into al-Qaida's hands” by “routinely” blocking the visas. Maybe he needs to look in the mirror instead when making that statement.
Where has Gore been the last week? Has he been locked away in rehearsals with the Dixie Hicks for their next overseas Sedition Tour? Has he not noticed the riots and violent protests by Muslims over the cartoon controversy? The irresponsible rantings of a former Vice President against this nation while in the Middle East is what plays into the hands of al-Qaida and their acolytes in the media. It gives them propaganda ("Look! Even a former Vice President attacks a sitting President" is the message sent.) and fuels more antipathy against the United States in the War on Terror.
Yet that is the selfish and childish nature of Al Gore, his refusal to get over the fact he lost a close Presidential election. Hey Al, do us all a favor. Go to a psychiatrist and seek psychological help. While you’re at it, why don’t you and your fans at a certain website take a hint from their name and Move On! Your pre-9/11 attitude at this dangerous juncture threatens us all.
