"HE PLAYED ON OUR FEARS"

June 12, 2007

Back in February 2004, as the campaign was starting to heat up, former Vice President, Al Gore blasted President Bush in a speech in which he screeched into the microphone, "And the reason I'm recalling those feelings now is because those are the feelings that were betrayed by this president! He betrayed this country! He played on our fears! He took America, he took America on an ill-conceived foreign adventure dangerous to our troops, an adventure that was preordained and planned before 9/11 ever took place!" Gore closed with his father's line from 1970: "And so I say to you in closing my friends, in the year of 2004, the truth shall rise again!"

A few months later in another speech, Gore said, “…as the tide of battle was shifting decisively in our favor, the commander in chief made a controversial decision to divert a major portion of our army to invade another country that, according to the best evidence compiled in a new, exhaustive, bi-partisan study, posed no imminent threat to us and had nothing to do with the attack against us.”

He added, “A little over a year ago, when we launched the war against this second country, Iraq, President Bush repeatedly gave our people the clear impression that Iraq was an ally and partner to the terrorist group that attacked us, al Qaeda, and not only provided a geographic base for them but was also close to providing them weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear bombs.” Shortly after he said, “As a result, President Bush is now intentionally misleading the American people by continuing to aggressively and brazenly assert a linkage between al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein.”

“If he is not lying, if they genuinely believe that, that makes them unfit in battle with al Qaeda. If they believe these flimsy scraps, then who would want them in charge? Are they too dishonest or too gullible? Take your pick.”

Yes, Al Gore said Bush was lying. Lying about the dangers of Saddam, his WMD’s and even his nuclear ambitions. Listening to Al Gore and other Democrats of late it is a clear message they are sending out that Saddam was an angel, he never hurt anyone and had no intention of doing so.

Echoing his closing words from his February 2004 screech, “the truth shall rise,” videos of a speech he made back in 1992, blasting Bush 41 for not acting decisively against Saddam and Iraq then were found on C-Span. Hear for yourself his words then compared to now.

Compare that speech to comments he made on CNN’s The Larry King Show in 2004.

Yes, Mr. Gore, the truth shall rise again and we have it.

Now, perhaps he or another Democrat will explain how Saddam was such a dire threat during the previous 8 years, but ceased to be any threat when Bush 43 reinitiated hostilities with Saddam’s Iraq to ensure the WMD’s did not fall into terrorist hands and to depose Saddam.

Some day, voters have to open their eyes and see the Democrat party is filled with opportunists that will say anything to get a vote, whether they actually believe it or not.

It is up to you voters to call these charlatans on their lies and hopefully, get behind our Troops and support them before Iraq falls in the hands of terrorists as a base to operate from, even closer to our shores.

OH YEAH! Gore is the liar. That's what happens to liars. They forget what they said to who and they can't get their rhetoric straight.

Imagine that.
