His opinion is a lot closer to fact then fiction. Al Gore was a part of an administration that turned a blind eye to terrorism. Gore like most democrats believe that terrorism is a law enforcement problem not a Global Security issue.
1) brought on the worst debt the country has ever had
2) entered into an unnecessary war costing the lives of hundreds of 1000's of iraqis
3) made the world on the whole hate us even more
4) worst approval rating of any president ever
need I go on? these were all things firmly in his control and any normal person would have gotten at least a few of those calls right
A war which elected officials voted in favor for and authorized. Elected officials who voted on behalf of the people they represent, in a way making you, me, and everyone else responsible as well.
Now explain how Gore or Kerry could have possible done better, in your opinion.
Yes, they voted for it. But now we all know Bush lied about why we should be there.
They have brains and can form independent thoughts.
Independent thoughts like "I know, I'll buy into a major Carbon Credits distributor and then I'll pretend to go super green and use my political influence to make an environmental teary-eyed video with polar bears so I can push Carbon Credits down everyone's throats! I'LL MAKE BILLIONS!"
Those kind of independent thoughts?
How so? Iraq is an imminent threat to us. They have WMD's. They hurt my daddy. Oh, wait. Hold up on that last one.
Yes, forming an independent thought. Being able to look at the information at hand, processing it in an intelligent way, and being able to act on it in an intelligent fashion. Bush isn't capable of that.
I am not a Bush apologist. However I will defend what I think that he has done right.
All I'm saying is that he did the best he could with the situation he had, and none of the other possible candidates could have done any better.
