Votes For A Free Drug America - Kerry Panders As AlGore Rants

Al Gore visited Goergetown University yesterday and once more through the proverbial kitchen sink at George W. Bush. According to the good folk over at Rueters, Preseident of Vice, Al Gore launched the following verbal polemic.

WASHINGTON—President Bush governs from a “love of power” and right-wing ideology rather than religious beliefs, and he has yet to hold anyone in his administration accountable for mistakes, former Vice President Al Gore said on Monday.

As the campaign by Bush and Democrat John Kerry for president headed into the last stretch before the Nov. 2 election, Gore criticized his rival for the White House four years ago on Iraq and other issues.

“I’m convinced that most of the president’s frequent departures from fact-based analysis have much more to do with right-wing political and economic ideology than with the Bible,” Gore said in a speech at Georgetown University.

“It is love of power for its own sake that is the original sin of this presidency,” he said.

Tip O' The Hat to Blogospherics.

Meanwhile, Democrats in Ohio acted far more like a group of people seeking power for its own sake.....

In Ohio, the state NAACP sank to a new low in its drive for more registered voters. It seems one of their voter registration workers, Goergianne Pitts, payed one Mr. Chad Staton in crack cocaine to falsely register 124 voters. I can think of no lower form of baseless pandering and lust for power than preying on a person's addiction to get them to register fake voters. If George W. Bush is guilty of love of power, his sins are hardly original.
