Republican Bob Barr to Introduce Gore's Speech Monday
http://rawstory.com/news/2005/Gore_to_deliver_scathing_...

Former Vice President Al Gore will deliver a scathing speech Monday at Constitution Hall in Washington -- just blocks from the White House -- at which he will declare America is faced with a constitutional crisis, RAW STORY has learned.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Day speech is set to take place at noon at the Daughters of the American Revolution's Constitution Hall. Gore will be introduced by onetime Georgia Republican congressman Bob Barr.

A source close to the erstwhile vice president related details of Gore's expected speech to RAW STORY Thursday. The source noted that Gore prepares the final editions of his speeches just before he delivers them, but that the tenor of the speech would focus on what the Tennessee Democrat has described as a President acting above the law.

The aide related how Gore was framing his address.

We are at a point of constitutional crisis," the aide said, relating how Gore has articulated his speech. "The president who has violated the law is acting above the law. Its a wakeup call for Congress, the American people and the courts. If we continue down this road we will have a different constitution.

2. And to think the NYTimes KNEW this before the election and protected Bush.
Thankyou for addressing this, Al.

I hope people will listen for a change. And wonder if the media will bother to give Gore the attention this matter deserves.

3. Time to bring this to a head.
Either the Republican Party is a criminal organization whose plan is to take us private or everything that has occurred the last 5 years hasn't happened. I'll be standing with President Gore on this.

4. Al Gore, I just have one question: Why didn't you write speeches
like the ones you've been giving since "losing "the election DURING the election?
Or at least find your own Ted Sorenson who could have been your "Voice" if campaigning precluded you actually doing the writing yourself?

Your speeches post 2000 get me clapping crying and move me. When I listen I could wring Nader's neck and don't get me started B* and his cabal.

Oh what might have been

5. Barr! DAR! Holy cow!
But will the press ignore the speech? If they do, it won't matter.

If it gets the coverage it will deserve -- that all speeches by Gore have deserved -- the results could be important.

It does make me keep hoping that Gore is considering running in 2008, despite his denials.

6. Cool.
I saw Gore's last speech at DAR Constitution Hall, for MoveOn. It was excellent.
