  •  Gore v. Bush Debate - GOP Obsessed With Bosnia (9+ / 0-)

    C-SPAN showed a repeat of the Bush/Gore debate where Gore was criticized for loud sighs.  

    It seemed like the 2000 election was from some alternate universe where Bush was seeking a mandate to invade Bosnia.

    Why was Al so frustrated? Because Bush spent the whole debate blathering about how the Dems had failed to take more aggressive action in Bosnia. Bosnia!

    Bush just would not shut up about Bosnia. Of course he had no plan, it was all about "leadership," and "respect" and "assertiveness" and the same tired cliches the GOP trots out every election cycle. Gore kept sighing over Bush's idiocy.

    Mostly it seemed to be a way for Bush to refuse to discuss actual issues.

    And of course, Bosnia vanished from the national radar screen as soon as Bush won.
