With President Obama’s supposed “Summer of Recovery” turning into what may be the beginning of a double dip recession and the Left’s popularity plummeting along with America’s economic prospects, one might expect that members of the conservative movement would be hard at work introducing the voting public to their solutions for our fiscal crisis.
I am extremely disappointed to say that this is not the case.
Instead, a vast majority of conservative pundits, politicians and talk show hosts have decided to make Al Gore the object of their derision. What exactly has he done to deserve this? Apparently, he tried to seduce a middle aged masseuse in a Portland, Oregon hotel room back in 2006.
My, oh my! How shocking! A washed-up has-been trying to get lucky with some stranger while out of town; we have never heard that one before!
Now, do not get me wrong, I am not defending our Illustrious Former Vice President and Junk-Science-Profiteer-in-Chief. His actions were reprehensible as, according to the masseuse, he tried to coerce her into having sex with him even after she made it clear that she would take part in nothing of the sort. I suppose that, because I have always thought of Gore as a national disgrace, I was not the least bit surprised to hear about his latest escapades. He is simply playing the role of a really sore loser, a role which he created for himself after losing (Yes, leftists, he really did lose the 2000 presidential election. I know the truth hurts, but trust me, you will get on with life) the presidency to George W. Bush.
Far more important than Al Gore, though, is that over half of a million Americans dropped out of the workforce last month, home sales are down unexpectedly, and even the most left-wing of economists are coming to the realization that Obama’s New Deal-inspired stimulus programs are a catastrophic failure. Unless something spectacular takes place, it looks as if the economy is going back into free fall.
Now is not the time for conservatives to waste their energy on a pathetic shadow of a man like Al Gore. No, now is the time for them to get the ball rolling and start dealing with America’s problems at hand.
They are too great to ignore for even another second.
