If we should have elected romney because he was a successful businessman, we
should have elected Al Gore for the same reason.
@ 4601 2:26 p.m. Jan. 10, 2013"The parasitic Mr. Gore has earned
more for doing less than anyone."Even Mitt & his ilk on Wall
I get down on my knees and thank God every night that five honorable men helped
save us from Gore, so we could have righteous men like George W. Bush and
Richard Cheney. Here's hoping the Tea Party can take our country back.Best Regards,Dick
All I can say is Al Gore is a total joke and hypocrite. So what if he is richer
than Mitt. I could care less. I know that Mitt Romney is a good man who gives so
much of his time and wealth to serve others. I do not ever hear anything like
that about Al Gore or any other one back there who belongs to the Government.
@truth..."According to a letter Buffett sent to Rep. Tim
Huelskamp (R-Kansas) that the Congressman posted , the billionaire had adjusted
gross income in 2010 of $62,855,038, taxable income of $39,814,784, and a
federal income tax bill of $6,923,494. That makes his effective tax rate, as a
percentage of AGI, just 11.06%"Source: Forbes Magazine. 62
Million now as a percentage of Buffett's overall wealth isn't that
much, but to the rest of us, I could be happy with it. But Buffett paid over $6
million in Income Taxes.... which runs contra to your claim of " They do not
pay income tax.".And you are correct, my statement about one
size fits all does apply to both right and left. ... never claimed otherwise.
@UtahBlueDevilWarren Buffet and bill gates do not care about income
tax.They do not pay income tax.They have already made
their money! All money they make now is just on paper,And they not have to pay any personal income tax until they cash in.According to you "There is no one size fits all description that fits all
people"That applies to the right as well. A lesson the
so-called compassionate, tolerant, and diverse left should have learned.
So the rich libs need to pay their fair share? Pay a little more? Are greedy?
It's like burglars preaching "thou shalt not steal".I
created the internet, and we're polutting the air.
Conservatives always like to shoot the messanger instead of debating the
message. Mitt's the one who constantly stuck his foot in his mouth, not
Gore or the Lib's. The Republicans have no one else to blame but
themselves as to why they lost the election. Just keep on attacking lib's
like Gore, Peolosi and Obama instead of putting forth VISIBLE solutions to the
issues if you want to stay on the sidelines. Chris Christie is the only
legitimate Republican currently out there on the national stage and
conservatices dislike him. See how far a Ryan/Santorum ticket gets you in
Very few, if any, Democrats "hate" rich people. I know all of you tea
partiers think that is so, but it just isn't the case. Many Dems are, in
fact, richer than many Repubs. It is no big expose' that so and so
Democrat is rich. Yes, we know that already -- after all, Warren Buffett is
probably a Democrat. Wealth isn't the issue. So Gore is rich. So what.
So Romney is rich. So what. That was never the issue. The issue is/was public
policies that favor the wealthy over the poor and middle class. Dems think that
the rich have been inordinately favored under the tax policies of the past
decade. That's all. We don't want all of their money. We don't
envy them. We don't hate them. We just think that a progressive tax
policy makes for a better society. We think a democratic (little d) government
has a place in society and don't believe it is the source of all evil.
So What! Does Mitt really worried? Nah!
Don't you think Mitt Romney is ecstatic hearing about Gore and his success
in the business world? Doesn't it justify all Romney and cohorts
praised about the best of business owners and capitalism?
And to think he was almost the President of The U.S. Scary Huh! But then again
look who we have now.
Hey class warfare republicans... you seem to forget that the hole in your class
warfare narrative you have conjured is that many of the richest Americans are
actually democrats.... oh wait... let me put that in a language you
understand.... socialist liberals.Warran Buffet, undoubably one of
the wealthiest and most successful businessmen has favored the Obama plan over
the Romney plan since day one. There is no anti rich agenda here... but keep
telling yourself that. The richest cities in the nation voted
"liberal". At some point, your going to have to realize that liberal
and rich anr not antagnoistic terms.One of the most eco friendly
homes is owned by the richest person in this country - Bill Gates. At the same
time, my boss, very conservative, and very eco friendly... all our new buildings
are LEED certified, and we generate our own energy via solar. What you all
think is true... just isn't. There is no one size fits all description
that fits all people. Get over it. Al Gore just proved he is a
better businessman evidently than Romney...and is still a liberal. It means
Didn't Gore make a ton of money when he invented the internet?
He has a right to make as much money as he can and pay as little in taxes as
possible. He also has the right to sell to a network that is despicable but is
(according to Al Gore, himself) more in line with his values than Glenn Beck who
also made a preliminary offer. BUT, the hypocrisy is hilarious. Is
there ANYONE who could take Al Gore seriously at this point?
The person that was re-elected in November is also a very rich man. Yet the
media never talked about his net worth, and the amount or the lack of his
charitable giving. At least Mitt gave up 30% or so of his wealth on his own.
Democrats might need someone to hold their hand and force them to give. But, for
the rest of us we are charitable (the kind that you don't have to be
forced).With that said that person in office takes our guns, raises
the taxes on rich and poor for they are all alike to him, gives tax breaks to
his wealthy friends warren buffett, gore, pelosi etc. Health care premiums are
going up, people are being reduced to less than full time work hours, ice is
building up in parts of the world and melting in others as it always has, and we
find ourselves facing $20 Trillion in debt.
Al Gore suffers from what all liberals must endure; numerous impossible
ideological paradoxes, a series bridges too far to gap. On one hand they
enthusiastically embrace Darwinism (survival of the fittest) but reject
capitalism which is economic survival of the fittest. They deeply love Darwinism
but enthusiastically accept Marxism (from each according to their ability and to
each other according to their need);complete philosophical opposites. They use
rabid environmentally extreme rhetoric and junk science to criticize capitalism
while demanding the rest of us do as I say, not as I do. They have great
difficulties and ample criticism for anyone who achieves financial success,
unless of course the person profiting is one of their own. It is the most
hypocritical, fundamentally flawed and self contradictory ideologies possible
and it is ripe with internal contradictions. It is dangerous because it produces
men and nations like Al Gore.
Gasp!!! He's officially out of touch and incapable of relating to 95% of
America. Hope he doesn't run for president, the country can't handle
success and lots of money in a leader. People who have lots of money can't
lead because of their wealth. Repeating those ideas enough won a presidency,
most certainly not sound policy and strong plans. I figured obama would at
least pull a clinton and move to the middle after the election, since he
doesn't have a party to hold him accountable next election cycle, but no,
he's just more inept at bringing two sides together than previously
thought. A major opportunity to show his migration having passed, we'll
see if anything changes going forward.
The fact that it was sold to Al-Jazeera who are apparently partly owned by the
emir of Qatar raised a lot of eyebrows. Someone talked with people in Current
and they were upset. They felt that Al Gore had sold out to 'Big
Oil'. They were disappointed that he sold out on his liberal values.Back in the Cold War we made mistakes in that when the head of some
military junta in Central or South America said that he supported democracy we
gullibly believed him. Our naivete created messes that still persist.In today's world, there is an equally dangerous myth. Just because
someone says that he is liberal, doesn't mean that he is liberal. Gore is
just a dogmatic. He follows the political dogma, or rather, n his case, he
creates the offical dogma which others follow.
Don't worry, this will be a temporary situation. Scary to think what
Mitt's net worth will be 12 years after losing this election. The guy
hasn't had a pay check since 1999, and turned down multiple offers north of
30 mil/year after losing the last election.
The righteous are always richly blessed. The more money, the more righteousness
and the more blessings.
It is an inconvenient truth that he has amassed much of his wealth from the
global warming fiasco.
Will Obama blame Gore for being greedy, and not paying a little more?
Mr. Romney had plenty of wealth to purchase a “clue” at Mark
Leder's house last May. That 10K dinner group were as clueless as he was
when it came to the “47 percent”. His and their wealth did not
serve the Republican Party very well that day.
He fooled lot of people but not anymore!
Liberal Ted: Is not he one of your guys? Why don't you speak to him about
The parasitic Mr. Gore has earned more for doing less than anyone. And to think
the D's wanted him as president. There goes the moral high ground myth.
Most of the DN bloggers will now conclude that he must be smarter than Mitt and
more qualified to be president.
Amusing that so many democrats took such issue with Romney's wealth...
I think it's time for Mr. Gore to pay his "Fair Share". Whatever
He is free to make all the money his heart desires. Money becomes a problem only
when it is not used for the benefit of others. Sadly amassing money may not
produce a wise and better man, husband or father.
That Greedy Gore. Interesting how he tried to finalize the sale, before the new
taxes were set to kick in. Shouldn't he relish the thought of paying
higher taxes and doing his fair share?
Current tv was mostly garbage, I wonder if that will change with it being sold
away.Isn't it sad that Gore goes around the world in his
private jet telling us all to ride our bikes more and drive less, than goes back
to one of his 4-5 mansions that use more energy in a month than we do in a year?
