HOW A LIBERAL INCUMBENT APPEALS FOR VOTES
What if there were no problems for politicians to solve by spending other people?s money?
With no break, this weekly feature returns to the subject of U.S. Vice-President Al Gore and his presidential campaign. The author hereby acknowledges that someone might come to believe he counts Gore among politicians most likely, if elected President of the United States, to impede human progress. Some burdens simply must be borne.
And some tidbits are too delicious not to share upon discovery. This one-the top of a list of press release headlines from the Vice-President's section of the White House web site-shows how a liberal politician uses incumbency and taxpayer money to win favor with various classes of voters. It follows verbatim, no entries deleted, with no further comment.
