How out of touch is Al Gore with the American public? Or is this some 'grand plan' by the Democratic Party to take an extreme liberal position? Either way, it's a loser. Of course, when we get attacked, which we will, it will all be egg on Al Gore's and the Democratic Party's faces. Something about the West coast, and especially San Francisco. It turns conservatives liberal, and liberals into leftist extremists of the most repulsive kind. Bush has plenty of flaws and I criticize him a lot, but this guy was the OTHER choice. Nuff said.
Gore Is Sharply Critical of Bush Policy on Surveillance

Former Vice President Al Gore said today that recent revelations that the Bush administration monitored domestic telephone conversations without obtaining warrants "virtually compels the conclusion that the president of the United States has been breaking the law repeatedly and persistently."
Mr. Gore called on the attorney general to appoint a special counsel to investigate the matter and recommended that Congress hold "comprehensive - not just superficial - hearings." He also said telecommunications companies that provided access to their networks to the government should stop doing so. [Is he asking companies to defy the government's antiterrorism inquiry? Is that it, Al]
"It is this same disrespect for America's Constitution which has now brought our republic to the brink of a dangerous breach in the fabric of the Constitution," Mr. Gore said. "And the disrespect embodied in these apparent mass violations of the law is part of a larger pattern of seeming indifference to the Constitution that is deeply troubling to millions of Americans in both political parties." [Woh, slow down Al. Take a darvon.]
