34. Yes, 911 would have taken place if Gore had been elected.
Edited on Mon Nov-21-11 01:29 AM by No Elephants
In fact, there was a video of Bin Laden released before the 2004 election in which he specifically he did not care which Party the new President belonged to. It was a matter of U.S. policies that needed changing. It did not matter if Bush were re-elected or if Kerry were elected.

I know of nothing that would lead anyone to assume that that speech represented a radical change in his thinking from 2000.

It's Americans who mind getting screwed less if their Party does it. The rest of the world in judging us on U.S. policies, not on whether a Democrat or a Republican sits in the Oval Office.

Besides, if you will recall, even if Gore had been elected, the House was Republican and the Senate was just about evenly divided.

As far as the intelligence agencies, who the hell knows? And who the hell knows what Gore would have done if he had gotten the same memo Bush did--Al Qaeeda planning attack in the U.S.

According to Bubba, he told Dummya that Al Qaeeda was the number 1 threat facing the U.S. (silly, but that is what he claims he said during the transition). Yet, Al Qaeeda was, only 8 months after he left office, in a position to attack us.

We need to start looking at how government fails us and let go of the idea that all Democrats are automatically superhuman.
