Watching Al Gore on Chris Hayes

Waits for Chris to finish his question, hears each word of each question, responds brilliantly and directly to the questions, honestly and intelligently.

sigh

One stolen election kept him from his rightful seat for 8 yrs, another stolen election reminds us the Democratic Party are the adults, are vastly superior to all republicans in every area.

sigh

2. Good points made about advertising (a la the tobacco industry)

 

There are very wealthy entities who have it in their interest to deny climate change.

4. They need to watch Richard Engel on MSNBC

since he is showing how profitable renewable energy is. China and India are putting the US to shame. American investors are morons if they don't see this.

3. I shook his hand once

And have an autographed "Gore 88" campaign poster. His 1988 campaign is what made me a Dem. I was 17 and raised in a conservative household, but even at that age wanted to break away from that worldview and Al was the first candidate that I gravitated toward.

5. I got a kiss on the cheek from Al!

He was in town, campaigning for John Kerry, and as both a campaign worker and a veteran, I got to sit right up in the front row. Afterwards he was shaking hands and something I said to him (can't remember what it was, now) made him smile, and he gave me a hug and a peck on the cheek. I was the envy of the rest of the campaign staff.

14. Gore and Vanessa Kerry spoke at a 2004 rally held by the Hawaii

Democratic Party at McKinley High School auditorium in Honolulu. It was a week before the General which had Bush closing to within 7 points in the local polling. The visit from the two was an unscheduled "emergency" measure to stir up the heavily Democratic population.

I got no kisses but warm handshakes from both of them.

10. Hah! Just saw your screen name. You won't be around for long (meaning Bannon's REAL liver)!!!!

BTW, back in 1992 I saw both Bill Clinton and Al Gore at appearances. Clinton gave a campaign speech just two-tenths of a mile from where I was living at the time (I walked there!) and Gore held a rally in the gymnasium of Wesleyan University about three miles from me.

I've lived under 12 Presidents now, until Obama was elected I considered Clinton the greatest president of my lifetime.

7. His confidence was a breath of fresh air

Now watching Richard Engel On Assignment. A good follow up to the Gore interview. Sad but an important broadcast.

15. Throughout the years, a breath of fresh air

He has always made a lot of sense, and would have been a great President.
The world may have had a better chance to avoid so many horrific events.
We were cheated out of an election rightfully belonging to Gore.
I will never get over that life altering election, I am never over it.

9. He still has that beard, symbolically.

 

I was never a big Al Gore fan until he said fuck it, grew a beard and stopped being such a cautious politician. I will always think that "bearded" Al Gore would have beaten W. in a landslide.

Same people who were useful idiots for Trump, the GOP, and Putinistas this time around.

17. Not to forget, though, the most useful idiots for the republicans

are the ones who voted for all these slimy politicians over the last 50 years or more. Republicans have done nothing to help America thrive. Their policies have always been about crippling public programs and instead are designed to benefit those who need it the least - those who are already wealthy. Yet despite the obvious progression of repugs getting into office and ruining the economy and driving communities into stagnation or worse (followed by Democrats coming in afterwards and getting things back on track), these useful idiots keep bending over and asking for more. Anything useful that republicans have done for this country has been an exception, never the norm. Contrast that with the accomplishments of the Democratic party even in the face of republicans lying, cheating and stealing their way into power. It boggles my mind.
