Gore Takes Charge!

See the video


Out of the ashes Al Gore has risen today in defense of our Constitution. Illegal domestic spying on American citizens surely rises to the level of "high crimes and misdemeanors" and potentially even "treason" and if our Congress has any self respect left, they will abandon the blind deference to Bush and listen to the call of the American people and put an end to this. Impeachment over a BJ? Surely spying on Americans illegally rises even above that...

Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black. Gore was Vice President of an administration that did the exact same thing. There are documented cases of the Clinton administration spying on other Americans. Thank god for it, they captured an American selling secrets to Israel. The American people aren't calling for President Bush's impeachment, the far radical left may be,they are calling for a President and Goverment willing to protect our homes, families, and country.
By the way, President Clinton wasn't impeached for a BJ. He wasn't impeached for going on T.V. and lying to the American people. He was impeached for going in front of a Grand Jury and lying under oath. The same oath he swore to uphold.

I thought Gore's speech was remarkable, and he was accurate in saying Bush has broken the law repeatedly and persistently.

The previous comment amounts to little more than the standard and ineffective "clinton and gore did it too!" position, and offers no reasonable attempt to defend Bush's spying. There is no reasonable defense for what Bush has done. We aren't made any safer by the abuse of our civil liberties.
