NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Former Vice President Al Gore charged Thursday that President Bush's nomination of Republican Rep. Porter Goss to lead the CIA continues the president's pattern of using the Sept. 11 tragedy for political benefit.
Gore, in a speech to the Music Row Democrats, said that with the selection of Goss, an eight-term congressman from Florida, Bush "just thumbed his nose" at the bipartisan commission established to investigate the attacks.
Gore said the commission recommended a change in the structure of intelligence-gathering and the creation of a new position to coordinate intelligence. Gore called a Goss, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee since 1997, a "partisan ally" of Bush who is "experienced in bitterly criticizing the Democratic nominee on the subject of the war and on the subject of intelligence-gathering."

AlGore doesn't like him, can't get higher praise than that!
Janet Reno would have been a better pick, right Al? /sarcasm
Who the hell asked him for his opinion???
I remember during the counts and recounts in 2000, several pundits predicted (in all seriousness) that Gore would set up a "shadow government" that would haunt Bush.
Is this what they meant?? lol!
Actually, I was thinking Jamie Gorelick.

The Ditzy Chicks?
You are still not President.
That is all.
As long as he's in Tennessee, doesn't he have some rental properties to check on (and maybe install some indoor plumbing)?
Shut up, you Jello-assed loser.
I will remain a lady and keep my membership here...*takes deep breath*.
Al please be quiet.
There was I good?
If you only knew what I really wanted to write because I TRULY HATE THIS MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This from a man who considers Bill Clinton, and I quote, "one of our greatest presidents".
Or Condidit, perhaps.
I wish Gore would take a walk off the fantail of the USS Ronald Reagan. Then again, he'd just float up to shore along with the other driftwood.
Gorelick and Berger belong in jail. Earlier rather than later.
To clarify" "Jello-assed loser" refers to Gore, not you.
