President Gore Speaks

August 7, 2003

The President in exile gave a speech today. I found the following passage of note:

And as for honor and integrity, let me say this: we know what that was all about, but hear me well, not as a candidate for any office, but as an American citizen who loves my country:

For eight years, the Clinton-Gore Administration gave this nation honest budget numbers; an economic plan with integrity that rescued the nation from debt and stagnation; honest advocacy for the environment; real compassion for the poor; a strengthening of our military — as recently proven — and a foreign policy whose purposes were elevated, candidly presented and courageously pursued, in the face of scorched-earth tactics by the opposition. That is also a form of honor and integrity, and not every administration in recent memory has displayed it.

I really can’t help but wonder how different our country would be today if certain people hadn’t de-railed the electoral process. My sincere hope, regardless of who wins the next Presidential election, is that there is no question that the candidate who was elected by the people of America actually makes it into the Oval Office.

For any liberals out there, I would like to point out the Meetup button on the left. The one there is for Kucinich, but there are others on for Dean and others. (There are even meetups for nearly everything one can imagine, from Goths, to Star Trek, to MovableType!) If any Kucinich supporters are in the Saint Paul area, please think about attending a rally on 8.16.03 @ Central High School.

I’ll be there….visiting my alma matter….<shudder>
