The Pope of the Democrat Party speaks

| June 17, 2008


 Somehow the Democrats thought that it was earth shattering news that Al Gore would support Barack Obama’s candidacy for President. I never had a doubt that he would, did you? The nightly news was abuzz with the news, I even got an email from Al Gore personally addressed to “Dear Friend“. I felt honored.

 Dear Friend,

A few hours from now I will step on stage in Detroit, Michigan to announce my support for Senator Barack Obama. From now through Election Day, I intend to do whatever I can to make sure he is elected President of the United States.

Over the next four years, we are going to face many difficult challenges — including bringing our troops home from Iraq, fixing our economy, and solving the climate crisis. Barack Obama is clearly the candidate best able to solve these problems and bring change to America.

This moment and this election are too important to let pass without taking action.

That’s why I am asking you to join me in showing your support by making a contribution to this campaign today:

He repeated the same message from the stage in Detroit (Washington Times link) ;

Mr. Gore, who resisted calls to make another bid for the presidency last year and who avoided taking sides during the primary battle, told supporters that he will do “whatever I can” to ensure Democrats win the White House in November.

“The outcome of this election will affect the future of our planet,” Mr. Gore told a cheering crowd of about 13,000 gathered at Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena Monday night. “We’ve got to have new leadership, not only a new president but new policies, not only a new head of state but a new vision for America’s future.

“This election matters more than ever because America needs change more than ever,” he said in introducing Mr. Obama. “After eight years of incompetence, neglect and failure, we need change.”

They call Republicans fear-mongers yet they tell us that without Obama we’re doomed. Like Obama’s victory speech when he announced that the oceans will begin to recede now that he’s been nominated. I find it typical of Democrats to cling to their losers, though. They trot out Al Gore and John Kerry like their respective defeats are some sort of badge of honor. America loves winners not the likes of Al Gore and John Kerry.

But, I think it’s time Americans started asking what “change” the Democrats are offering. After eight years of a Gore vice presidency, what is Obama going to change that Al Gore didn’t? After two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress, what has John Kerry or Barack Obama changed?  Apparently the only thing they like about America is that they can promise change while delivering squat.

  1. Jonn,

    Don’t call Gore the Pope! Benedict is a conservative and has become friends with W. Antichrist would be a more fitting title…

    I have to admit to being somewhat amazed that the Obamamessiah would have His Holiness, Pope AlGore endorse him in Michigan after considering the importance of the auto industry in that state and AlGore’s disdain for the internal combustion engine as made clear in this quote from the Goracle’s magnum opus, Earth in the Balance:

    “When we seek to artificially enhance our capacity to acquire what we need from the earth, we do so at the direct expense of the earth’s ability to provide naturally what we are seeking. We frequently ignore the impact of our technological alchemy on natural processes. When we manufacture millions of internal combustion engines and automate the conversion of oxygen to CO2, we interfere with the earth’s ability to cleanse itself of the impurities that are normally removed from the atmosphere.”

    Of course he says we can move away from the internal combustion engine without losing jobs but I wonder how many auto workers are willing to put their jobs in the Obamamessiah and the Goreacle’s hands?

    Barack has sought to maintain his views on the Iraq war (leaving as soon as practically possible) but insists on building up forces in Afghanistan. Unless the Democratic Party campaign suddenly adopts the Afghanistan war as its own, it could be a difficult (but not impossible) sell to its striden anti-war base.
