Quote Freely From The Article – Leave The Pseudonym Alone
Alvin Gore says he certainly supports the OWSers. Perhaps he can toss some carbon trading proceeds dollars (out of the millions he has amassed since he left office) toward the pool souls. Here’s what he has to say about what “our leaders” have not done (is there a bit of self-abasement in his words) to straighten out this country and it’s economy:
Former Vice President Al Gore threw his support behind the Occupy Wall Street protests Wednesday night, arguing that the country’s elected officials have failed the public on everything “from the economy to the climate crisis.”
Gore, a vocal advocate of policies to address climate change, called the protests — which have spread around the country — a “true grassroots movement.”
If you follow his spew a little deeper into the article, this is what you’ll read:
“From the economy to the climate crisis, our leaders have pursued solutions that are not solving our problems; instead they propose policies that accomplish little,” Gore wrote on his blog Wednesday night.
“With democracy in crisis, a true grassroots movement pointing out the flaws in our system is the first step in the right direction. Count me among those supporting and cheering on the Occupy Wall Street movement.”
There’s a little more to read in the article, but from what I’ve read Gore certainly belongs in the crowd he pretends to berate. I mean, how can he possibly say that the current bunch in Obama’s administration has supported policies that accomplish little, when they have loaned hundreds of millions (if not over a trillion or two) to solar panel and other renewable energy manufacturers. Isn’t Gore the quintessential chief rooter rooster of the energy
Roost roast. He must be getting lonely hawking for and by himself.
