BBJ said:I was just wanting to get some responses to the reckless and thouhgtless remarks made by our former vice president. I know his hypocryscy (sp?) makes me proud. :x

I mean sure... i can see where one might disagree. Especially if they're hung up on the fact that it was Gore's speech. but what's "reckless" or "thoughtless" in there?
The President and I agree on one thing. The threat from terrorism is all too real. There is simply no question that we continue to face new challenges in the wake of the attack on September 11th and that we must be ever-vigilant in protecting our citizens from harm.
Where we disagree is that we have to break the law or sacrifice our system of government to protect Americans from terrorism. In fact, doing so makes us weaker and more vulnerable.
As Ben Franklin put it 250 years ago, They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Off to read the rest and see if I can find the "reckless" and "thoughtless" stuff.
BBJ said:For those of you that misssed what I refered to as reckless and thoughtless, it's the third sentence in the link you posted HMF.
And I quote ""A president who breaks the law is a threat to the very structure of our government." When you consider that clinton lied under oath and basically got away with it, then in my book that's reckless and thoughtless.
BBJ said:Reckless and thoughtless in the fact that his boss put his hand on the bible and swore to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help me God then lied. He has admitted it. Now al gore says"A president who breaks the law is a threat to the very structure of our government." and expects to be taken seriously? I dont care about the seriousness of the crime. If I swear to tell the truth I would like to think that I would do just that.
As far as depending on the law, I think its pretty clear that when you go under oath you tell the truth.
