12. I can`t even begin to count the ways our lives would be better.
Let`s start with Iraq, then move on to Katrina. Let alone the fact that we would be on our way to serious alternative energy.As it is, it will take us YEARS to right the wrongs of this administration. God only knows what fun they have lined up for the next election.

  - #1 - 9/11 wouldn't have happened had Gore been President.  Hissyspit   Jul-14-07 11:34 AM   #1

     - I don't belive that  DiktatrW   Jul-14-07 11:41 AM   #11 
     - Just to clarify  Catch22Dem   Jul-14-07 11:47 AM   #16 
        - Oops, Typo.  DiktatrW   Jul-14-07 11:50 AM   #18 
           - Nah, not a typo  Catch22Dem   Jul-14-07 11:59 AM   #24 
     - Gore wouldn't have ignored the threat. Gore wouldn't have trashed the anti-terrorism  Hissyspit   Jul-14-07 11:52 AM   #19 
     - Gore would have listened to the CIA and his national security advisors.  yardwork   Jul-14-07 11:55 AM   #21 
     - It was prudent to confirm who, exactly, attacked the Cole. Having warning on something isn't enough  MookieWilson   Jul-14-07 01:12 PM   #33 
        - I recommend Richard Clarke's book, Against All Enemies.  yardwork   Jul-14-07 04:55 PM   #45 
     - Gore, having been VP with Clarke...  sutz12   Jul-14-07 11:57 AM   #23 
     - Clark, not Clarke  Catch22Dem   Jul-14-07 12:01 PM   #28 
     - In 1999 Gore presented recommendations on securing commercial  alfredo   Jul-14-07 12:10 PM   # 
     - I don't know if he could have implemented it.  Rosemary2205   Jul-14-07 03:35 PM   #41 
     - Then the GOP's fall would have come a lot sooner.  alfredo   Jul-14-07 04:52 PM   #44 
        - Or at the very least, the response to 9/11 would have been to implement Hart-Rudman  yardwork   Jul-14-07 05:03 PM   #47 
           - They only see an upside to terrorism. It gives them power over us.  alfredo   Jul-14-07 05:44 PM   #52 
     - Yes. The Hart-Rudman report.  Perragrande   Jul-14-07 04:39 PM   #43 
        - But the bush junta knew best.  alfredo   Jul-14-07 05:36 PM   #51 
     - Instead of 9/11, The Causus Belli Would Have Been President Gore's Assassination by "Terrorists"  AndyTiedye   Jul-14-07 01:14 PM   #34 
        - That is a very interesting idea. Until 2000 I would have dismissed it.  yardwork   Jul-14-07 05:02 PM   #46 
  - So, NOW is the moment for the Sheehan rejoinder.  sfexpat2000   Jul-14-07 11:35 AM   #2 
  - my thoughts? -- why -- why is george bush GROWING the taliban? n/t  xchrom   Jul-14-07 11:35 AM   #3 
  - AND al Qaida? n/t  sfexpat2000   Jul-14-07 11:37 AM   #5 
     - yeah i added that on edit --  xchrom   Jul-14-07 11:40 AM   #8 
  - That's unfounded speculation.  evlbstrd   Jul-14-07 11:37 AM   #6 
  - It could have been prevented, but, perhaps not. We were relying on incompetents to protect us...  MookieWilson   Jul-14-07 11:55 AM   #20 
     - Yeah, incompetents like Condi Rice. n/t  sfexpat2000   Jul-14-07 11:56 AM   #22 
     - We're still relying on incompetents. TSA employees don't have to have high school diplomas.  yardwork   Jul-14-07 05:05 PM   #48
