      fantasizing about the Gore Administration after 3+ years of Obama droning brown people.

      Who's got the reality problem?

        With this "they're both the same" horseshit.

        At the very least 3,000 Americans would probably still be alive since a POTUS Gore would have read his PDB on 8/16/01. Not to mention the 4,000 US troops and million Iraqis who would still be alive because he wouldn't have invaded an unarmed nation on the basis of a lie.

        But hey, Obama didn't give you your pony, and that's more important.

        •  And which of any of them... (0+ / 0-)

          despicable characters all, have done anything to dismantle the bullshit that is American Imperialism?

          Your argument is that Gore was a more efficient and effective imperialist, not that he would have changed anything substantively.  And you are absolutely right about that.

          Once upon a time, a Democratic nominee for President got up on the podium at the Democratic convention and lamented that we had killed Vietnamese.

          Now, Democrats brag that they are more efficient at killing brown people than the Republicans.

          What a great improvement.

            suit, since what I argued is that Gore would NOT have been more efficient at killing brown people since he would not have killed brown people in the FIRST place. His dilligence would have prevented 9/11 & the killing of brown people in Iraq, the bullshit excuse for invading that country in the first place. But since Obama didn't give you one & since it makes you feel better, here you go

          Not to mention that many of the citizens of New Orleans would have fared better had President Gore presided over the handling of that situation.  

          Instead of Babs Bush cooing that because of Dubya's direction, things were working out nicely for all of the displaced people and ignoring the fate of those who drowned or starved or died of dehydration -- or Dubya, following his tardy, disinterested fly-over, congratulating Brownie on his heck of a job -- there would have been efficient, effective management of the emergency, and there would have been a concerted effort afterward to correct the problems with the failed infrastructure.

        No, wait... it's 10 degrees outside.

        Air conditioner or woodstove. You see no difference. It's all the same in your world.
