Don't get me wrong, I really miss Al. While I think he would have been disasterous as a president and probably would have sold us down the river by going a little too far with his environmental policies, there's still something about him that keeps me from pointing at his image and screaming "He disgusts me!!" He's kind of likeable. Like Bill was. Come to think of it, maybe that is a bad thing. We make irrqtional decisions based on fondness rather than logic, as indicated a couple times last decade.

So keep in mind that this list of Gore lies is only for fun. Don't get bent out of shape, even you Gorey people know these are "True Lies."

FACT OR FICTION ?

FICTION: Al Gore recently claimed that his mother-in-law pays more than $100.00 for the arthritis medicine Lodine; and he claims that his dog takes the same medicine for $37.00, claiming "This is wrong!"
FACT: Gore's aides were quick to apologize for Gore's lie, saying the information was from a Democratic study. Washington newspapers also reported that Al Gore wasn't even sure his mother-in-law was taking any medication at all and wasn't even sure she had arthritis. And, he doesn't know anything about his dog's "arthritis".

FICTION: Al Gore said his father, a senator, was a champion of civil rights during the 1960's.
FACT: Gore's father voted against the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 and was a racist who was fond of using the "N----" word.

FICTION: Al Gore said that his sister was the very first person to join the Peace Corps.
FACT: By the time Gore's sister joined the Peace Corps, there were already over 100 members.

FICTION: The same sister died of lung cancer years later and Gore vowed to never accept tobacco money as campaign contributions.
FACT: Just four years later, while campaigning for office, Gore spoke to the tobacco industry and said he was one of them because "I've planted it, raised it, cut it, and dried it." He raised over $100,000 in "reported" Big Tobacco contributions.

FICTION: While running for office, Gore's campaign literature claimed he was a "Brilliant Student".
FACT: Washington newspapers said he barely passed Harvard and consistently earned D's and C's.

FICTION: Gore claims an extensive knowledge of law as a result of his extensive study at law school.
FACT: Al Gore dropped out of law school.

FICTION: Gore claimed that his knowledge of God and spirituality came to complete fruition while "finishing" divinity school.
FACT: Al Gore dropped out of divinity school.

FICTION: Al Gore claimed responsibility for inventing the Internet in the 1990's.
FACT: Shocked scientists were quick to speak out, explaining that the Internet had been in widespread use by government and educational institutions since the early 1970's.

FICTION: Al Gore claimed the book "Love Story" was based on his life and Tipper's.
FACT: Author Erich Segal called a press conference to deny his claim. (Couldn't he at least lie about a love story where his sweetheart doesn't die?"

FICTION: Gore claimed that as a reporter for a Nashville newspaper, his stories led to the arrests of numerous corrupt criminals.
FACT: He later apologized for his claim and actually said it was untrue (Also known as lying).

FICTION: Gore claims to increase diversity in the staff that follows him daily, especially among blacks.
FACT: Black members of the Secret Service are suing because they claim they are not being promoted to positions guarding theVice-President.

FICTION: Al Gore said he was the first to discover the Love Canal nuclear accident.
FACT: The incident was already discovered, being investigated, and covered widely in the press for many months before Gore was even aware of it.

FICTION: Gore said just recently that if elected president, he would put harsh sanctions on the sleazy producers of Hollywood's extreme sex and violence.
FACT: Just six days later, Gore attended a fundraiser by Hollywood producers and radical gay activists where he told them that he would only pretend to "nudge them" if elected. He raised over $4 million in campaign contributions.

FICTION: Al Gore said he built his Tennessee home with his bare hands.
FACT: Totally untrue!

FICTION: Al Gore says parents should not have a choice between private and public schools because public schools are far better.
TRUTH: Al Gore attended private school and he has sent his children to private schools.

FICTION: Al Gore remembers his mother lulling him to sleep as a baby by singing the popular ditty, "Wear The Union Label".
FACT: The popular ditty was created by the unions when Gore was 27 years old.

FICTION: Al Gore claimed to co-sponsor the McCain-Feingold Campaign Reform Act.
FACT: The Act was not sponsored until he had been out of office for over a year.

FICTION: Al Gore claims to be instrumental in keeping gas prices low.
FACT: Gore has voted on numerous occasions to raise the tax on gasoline. In his book "Earth In The Balance" Gore claims that the nation's Number One enemy is the internal combustion engine. (That's the motor in your vehicle that gets you to work and takes your kids to school.)

FICTION: AL Gore promised Florida's senior citizens that they would finally have low-cost drugs with no interference from government.

"I took the initiative in creating the Internet."

Sure sounds like he lied.

That's a pathetic attempt.

Romantico:

Do you defend Daschle on his move to prevent the US serviceman from being able to vote realtime from foreign military bases, at the same time as the rest of the US population, so that he or she actually knows who the candidates are, with a minimum of paperwork, and preventing a long time delay in getting the votes home to be counted, likely after the election is already over????????

I doubt there is anyone on this board who hates Daschelle more than I!! As my granddaddy use to say, "He's like tits on a bull, absolutely useless!"

Plainly a man of wit, your grandfather, romantico. I've always liked the British one "as much use as a chocolate teapot".
However, I do rather miss Gore -much as I missed Quayle.

I forget who said it, but I think it was best said:

The only thing worse than a Politician is a Child molestor...

Imo the best people to take a government position is those who are regular people, the average joe smoe who understand what its like to be under appreicated. After all when didnt we have a politican who wasnt from a filthy and rich family?!

I stand firm in the idea of the people takeing our country back from the sleaze.

Advisor WHERE ARE YOU WE NEED A PATRIOT WITH BALLS!!!!

I'm sorry, Estragon, I tried to read that poem set to the Beverly Hillbilly's tune, but I just couldn't do it. My mind kept drifting to Ellie Mae.
