Junior Al and his Juvenile Antics

PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE #1: George Bush vs. Al Gore
Both men came on the stage tonight in Boston, Massachusetts for the
first in a series of three presidential debates. Bush and Gore both had
suits, white shirts, and red ties. Both men were ready to debate.
AL GORE seemed very rude and fidgety. He made faces, rolled his eyes,
nervously giggled, turned pages, tore paper, and heaved big, theatrical
when George Bush spoke. The VP, you might say, would be considered by
today's teachers very hyper-active and displayed rude, juvenile
found Al's juvenile behavior not befitting of a man who wants to be the
next President of The United States of America. Also, I found his manner
surprising since he has surrounded himself with "real people" which,
according to news accounts, Gore relied on as unofficial advisors.
Surely, these "real
people," also known as "average joes" probably didn't tell Mr. Gore to
act this way.
As a Christian and a Conservative, I appreciate Mr. Bush accurately
referring to Al's "phony numbers" and "fuzzy math." Mr. Bush commented
point..."not only did he invent the internet, he invented the
calculator." Well, as we all know, Al did not invent the internet, nor
did he invent the
calculator. I do wish Mr. Bush would have come right out and identified
Mr. Gore for what he really is, a liar. Some politically correct people
someone who is a liar as being "too harsh." Is it? I don't think so.
Oh yes, speaking of numbers, there was Al Junior expounding on the need
for (stand by for that old DnC number 100,000) "100,000 new teachers"
a "universal pre-school." As the author of numerous pro-family oriented
web sites, and a mother who firmly believes that a good education for
is the sole-responsibility of the parents and not the government; I
found Mr. Gore's "education" plans very socialistic.
As a pro-life, pro-family wife and mother, I am utterly appalled and
outraged that Al Gore whole-heartedly supports the FDA approval of
Bush's response regarding RU-486 disappointed me and seemed half-hearted
I felt Gore might of "stretched the truth" on several occasions during
the debate. One clear example, which probably should be characterized as
outright LIE was when Albert Gore Jr. firmly stated that "The size of
the Federal Government will go down in a Gore Administration." Folks,
have to be a rocket scientist to understand that if Gore spends our hard
earned tax dollars (via the federal budget) on all the promises that he
promised in this campaign; our government will grow and grow, and our
hard earned tax dollars will diminish and diminish!
Are you for the Constitution? Of course you are! Seems like a silly
question doesn't it? It's not silly; it's serious. Al Gore views the
"...interpreted as a document that grows." That's totally ridiculous.
The Constitution, like The Bible, are writings that should never be
helpful suggestions or just plain interesting reading. Simply put, The
Constitution IS one of the great documents which IS part of the
foundation of our
great country, The United States of America.
In closing, A Gore looked straight into the camera and said, "I ask you
again to see me for who I really am." Al, we already have.
