    Plurality

    I would guess some of you who make unkind
    comments about Gore would be concerned. More citizens
    (300,000) voted for Gore than for Bush. Is some respect due
    for the majority of your fellow citizens?

    Why
    do you insult this man? Do you have any compelling
    reasons? I want to know. Is it generally because you and
    the nation will be better off with lower taxes. Do
    you think there is no risk to the national budget
    with Bush?

    Could you express your views in a
    civil manner?

    • It amazes me the lengths that the Clinton Gore
      era go to. I mean Clinton gets off of committing
      purjury by using word games. Gore on the other hand uses
      puppets to file suits to "protect the public rights". How
      can you even begin to defend Clinton or Gore for what
      they have done? Give me a break!

    • Sure-

      a) He is a pathological liar
      (Invented the internet, I was in Texas during the fires, my
      mother can't afford medication for her arthritis and on
      and on and on)

      b) National Defense secrets
      traded to China in exchange for campaign cash)

      c)
      Yes the budget will suffer immensely under Gore's
      spending programs while the tax cut proposed by Bush would
      result in an increased revenue for the Federal Gov't
      thus making debt reduction easier.

      Civil
      enough?

      Maybe,
      but please don't be offended, this is, after all,
      yahoo. (the infamous, "other" side of the tracks, where
      some take great pride in insulting and offending
      others!).

      I think there are/were great risks with either man
      in the white house. This election was unique for me
      in that I found both candidates equally
      un-palatable. However, this was also an election that Gore
      should have won in a "definitive" manner, like the past
      elections of recent history.

      I find Gore an
      obssesive, compulsive, power-hungry politician. This is one
      of the contributing factors to his "impending" loss.
      He was unable to give up any control to others who
      would have helped him in his campaign.

      Bush,
      OTOH, is the exact opposite in the extreme! He is a
      passive frat-boy who delegates all his responsibilities
      to others, and unfortunately it seems he can even
      "afford" to, with all the help he has.

      The
      difference, I feel, is that with Bush, at least you have the
      minds of many influencing him (Cheney, the biggest),
      whereas Gore, is so single-minded and obsessive, I would
      fear for the very safety of our country with him
      "dictating" our national policy!

    • sunfundasst -- I'll make a deal. I won't insult Al Gore if you call upon your fellow Gore supporters to stop insulting the president-elect?
