In 1998 I predicted Al Gore would be our next President. This prediction had nothing to do with Al Gore’s leadership ability, his political experience, or his famous debate skills.
It’s very simple: Al Gore, The White House, the DOJ and the Democrats will do whatever it takes to win. Period.
oil prices hurting your poll numbers?
easy. Just have the
Department of Justice investigate “price gouging” by “big
oil.” Never mind, the
fact that our government is the one “price gouging” by way of
taxing every gallon of gas almost 40%.
prices still high? Make some history. Release
the strategic oil reserves even though a month earlier you said that
such a move would do nothing to solve our energy problems.
Clinton scandals got you down?
Pick the only Democrat known for speaking out against
Clinton’s behavior with America’s favorite intern for your VP.
(Sure, Joe the “holy one” voted against impeachment, but
it’s the thought that counts.)
finance violations an issue?
Another easy one. Don’t investigate it.
Did anyone in America actually think that Janet Reno would ever
investigate the Vice President?
here’s a funny side note.
The FBI just opened a full-scale investigation of the Bush
campaign because a Bush debate prep tape was mailed to the Gore
campaign. The FBI
concluded that a full-scale investigation was warranted after
collecting evidence for just one week.
don’t worry about those pesky incriminating e-mails. “Oops, they’ve been lost.”
And the ones that we can be recovered, “it’s going to take
time”. Just enough
time, of course, to make sure they don’t interfere with the
Hall crowd member asks you embarrassing questions about your boss’s
rape allegations? Looks like an audit is in order.
The friendly IRS is on it to make sure that lady will serve as
an example just like Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones, the Travelgate
staffers, and almost every conservative group in America.
Speak up and you will be audited.
Abortion Issue not hurting the Republicans enough?
Have the FDA approve the use of RU-486 two months before the
could go on and on from the alpha male to the tobacco flip-flops.
It doesn’t matter if it has to be done to win, it will be
can’t wait to see what the coming weeks hold for us. Let’s just hope Gore does well in the final debates,
because if he has a weak performance and his poll numbers drop, watch
Hussein will be watching. If
the polls drop for Gore, so will the bombs.
Bombing Iraq should be good for at least 3 percentage points.
Hopefully, that will do it for Gore. If not, Clinton will be forced to shut down the Government. But hey, whatever it takes.
