  •  Oh Yeah, there was that other war, too (0+ / 0-)

    that he and Clinton ran - you know, the one where Mr. Clinton's wife was "this close" to being mowed down in a hail of bullets?

    The bottom line is that he had very good credentials as a warmonger!

    •  Gore applied reason (7+ / 0-)

      on matters of war and peace.

      Your calling him a 'warmonger' tells us exactly one thing. That you must have been a Nader voter. If so, then you are responsible for Bush's presidency and its consequences.

      •  Yeah, I must have been (0+ / 0-)

        But you know what, I wasn't.

        And he was utterly irrelevant in any event.

        He got 70,000 votes in Florida while 200,000 Democrats voted for George W Bush - why are * they * never blamed?

        Probably because people like you find it just a tad embarrassing the Mr. Gore couldn't hold the base . . .

        •  Please ... (7+ / 0-)

          The 200,000 "Democrats" to which you refer were undoubtedly Dixiecrats who weren't going to vote for any Democrat unless he came out in favor of segregation of schools and public accommodations.  The 70,000 Nader voters in Florida were, in my opinion, and with all due respect, idiots who couldn't or wouldn't recognize that Gore would have been a little bit better, and maybe way better, than GWB.  BUT while we're venting, let's focus on the real cause of this mess -- the 7,000 Nader voters in New Hampshire who could have saved us all from ever hearing about Florida, Florida, Florida.

    •  What was wrong with that war? (0+ / 0-)
      •  Nothing wrong with it if you like wars (0+ / 0-)

        that have absolutely nothing to do with US national interests (unless continuing to funnel $$s to the MIC is a compelling national interest, which is admittedly a point that one could make a strong argument for).
