Gore: Bush is a Right Wing Extremist

Take a look at Al Gore's latest attack:

Al Gore has made his sharpest attack yet on the George Bush presidency, describing the current US administration as "a renegade band of rightwing extremists".

In an interview with the Guardian today, the former vice-president calls himself a "recovering politician", but launches into the political fray more explicitly than he has previously done during his high-profile campaigning on the threat of global warming.

Denying that his politics have shifted to the left since he lost the court battle for the 2000 election, Mr Gore says: "If you have a renegade band of rightwing extremists who get hold of power, the whole thing goes to the right."

This is the one time I really wish Al Gore were right.

Update: Michelle Malkin reacts to Gore's latest zinger.

If Bush is a right wing extremeist then why is the border still open?

I would agree, other than the "in remission" part. When he publicly says that we need to do something in order keep the world from coming to an end, it is pretty clear that the lunacy is in full force.

Altogether - "we love you Al"


Al Gore is taking a coherent message such as a needed environmental concern and applying it in a Michael Moore manner, which is utterly, utterly incoherent.

He's also attempting to gauge the extreme right with a metric measuring tape. Tsk, tsk tsk. Typical.

I don't get it - since when is George Bush not considered "right wing"?

Only a total leftard wouldn't understand the difference between a right wing and right wing extremist. I see we have found one. He probably thinks Gore is a rightwinger.

The American people were given a choice between "a right wing extremist", if only it wee true!, and a communist. They chose the "right wing extremist" twice. Maybe Al Gore needs a hearing aid and eye glasses. Perhaps Al can't see that when given a choice between a "right wing extremist" and a communist the American people will always vote for the "right wing extremist". But you need a simple mark one brain to understand that and Al apparently fried his out with all that overheated rhetoric of his.

Not only is Pres Bush NOT a right wing extremist, he is not even a conservative. Pres Bush is a moderate who does make conservative-type decisions at times - tax cuts for example. He is certainly a moderate when it comes to environmental issues - if he was a true conservative he would have cut an executive order to drill in ANWR.

Gore continues to prove just how poor of character he would have been as President. I'm none too pleased with the Bush years, but we really dodged a bullet in 2000.

Once again, I must come to Al's defense. When you are as far to the left as he is then pretty much anyone not a King, Queen or socialist totaltarian dictator is going to appear to be a right wing extremist.

Ol' Al is NOT insane. He is a calculating politician playing to a certain political base. I can almost hear RR saying "now there you go again, AL. His swaggering style is almost a parody of Ronald Reagan, albeit a 180 degree turn from Reagan. He also has it a little backwards [typical for AG]: you are supposed to be a movie star first, then run for President. But he seems unable to pull off his attempts at stage magic on a grand enough scale to even get an effective majority for support.

OK, sarcaster now turned off. Now ducking for cover before both sides turn on me.

Gore is throwing red meat to the moonbats. The wilder and crazier he gets, the more likely he will be attempting a run.

Al got in on the Google IPO at the insider price. He's made a killing - he's not as rich as Teresa Heinz, but he doesn't have to ask Tipper for lunch money, either.

He could very easily fund a major portion of a primary campaign if he chose to. By sounding like a frothing-at-the-mouth leftist, he would also attract the likes of Soros and the Deaniacs.

This is why I'm not really ... (Below threshold)

This is why I'm not really worried about the GOP losing control to these dingbats. As we get closer to election time this fall, Bush will be constantly attacked this way to the point that a lot of this flap over immigration will be pushed to the back in favor of the constant media coverage of Bush as a right wing whacko.

Jim B.:

That's funny..Bush a right-winger. I hope the Republicans in '06 are smart enough to stand on conservative principles and run AGAINST Bush ... just like the dems. By the time dems realize that americans do not want their kind of left-wing lunacy, it will be to late.

Typical Leftist-speak. The idea is to accuse one's opponent of the very thing that one is guilty of, thereby supposedly achieving some kind of moral parity. Leftist's do it all the time. The hard Left has seized control of the Democratic Party, now they want everyone to believe that the same is true of the other side. I think people are smarter than that.

Oh, that Al. He says the darnedest things about his own country, military, and CinC (defenders of the US Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence, freedom, one nation under G_d, the hope of humanity) on foreign soil as genocidal jihadists and their commie accomplices plot to overthrow western civilization.

"Leftard"--LOVE your command of the English language, there.

Folks, Bush *is* radically right-wing when it comes to foreign policy and his claims to "unitary executive" power. He is moderate-to-liberal when discussing spending and immigration. Gore is an extremist in terms of the environment, this is not news to anyone.

Regardless of Gore's position, the fact that Bush is moderate-to-liberal on a couple of topics does not negate that his administration's "unitary executive" and foreign policy positions are--whether the right cares to admit this or not--radically right-wing.
