Al Gore Eviscerates President Obama

Wednesday, September 7, 2011

Al Gore eviscerated President Obama for throwing the EPA under the bus last week when he flip-flopped on clean air measures to reduce pollutants that cause smog.

Gore said:

“Instead of relying on science, President Obama appears to have bowed to pressure from polluters who did not want to bear the cost of implementing new restrictions on their harmful pollution — even though economists have shown that the US economy would benefit from the job creating investments associated with implementing the new technology. The result of the White House’s action will be increased medical bills for seniors with lung disease, more children developing asthma, and the continued degradation of our air quality.”

Mr. Gore, the actual winner of the stolen 2000 presidential election is just the latest high profile environmentalist to criticize Obama for bowing to corporate polluters.

Legendary film actor, director, writer and environmentalist Robert Redford recently took President Obama to task recently for flip-flopping on Arctic drilling, the Keystone XL pipeline and smog regulations.

Redford said of Obama:

“Like so many others, I’m beginning to wonder just where the man stands.”

    I think the Obama administration grossly underestimated the negative impact of reversing themselves on clean air regulations. So many American voters supported Obama because he said protecting the environment would be a top priority if elected. Instead, the only priority Obama cares about is his reelection and making the big bankers fat and sassy. I can’t wait to vote him out of office.

    Not a day passes that I revisit the 2000 election and wonder how things would be different today in America if Gore had been allowed to be president?

    Of course we will never know but, I don’t think 9/11 would’ve happened. Bush and Cheney needed 9/11 to pass the USA Patriot Act. So many civil liberties lost as a result. As for Obama, he’s a one termer. I hope we don’t get stuck with Rick Perry. Perry is extremely dangerous.

    Evidently, there ain’t nothing Barry will do to make his Republicans masters happy. Barry stands for nothing. He has political philosophy that defines who he is as a man and as a president. All he does is is compromise, capitulate and dance for John Boehner and Eric Cantor.

    Oh well. Just 14 more months of this trainwreck to suffer.

    Bushack HW Obama is an American tragedy. Many decades from now, people will still e trying to figure out what he actually is, or was.

    The irony is, everybody, whether you happen to be a Democrat, a Republican, straight, gay, young, old, middle age, everyone breathes the same air. Obama may believe protecting corporate polluters is more important to his reelection than protecting the air we breath but, he is wrong and I think he will pay the ultimate political price for caving to big business. Be gone, Obama. Just be gone.

    I was very disappointed that he backtracked on the pollution standards, among many other things. He doesn’t seem to understand that he is going to lose his base, while Republicans will never vote for him, nor will many so-called centrists. I think, however, “Sayingwhatneedssaying” did NOT need to say what he or she said above; it is totally uncalled for. I think the president has been governing too far to the right, has capitulated too much to corporate interests and the Republicans, I am disappointed he has not pushed harder for the things I believe in. And the main reason is, I think he has weakened his position so much that we might actually get one of these rightwing nutjobs who are hoping to win the Republican nomination, for president in 2012. And if we do, boy, will everyone wish Barack Obama was still president.

    It is truly baffling, the decisions this Obama makes. I just think it is time for him to move on.
