During the Drowning of New Orleans, I learned that I had been dead wrong about a politician. Let me explain. Even though I voted for Al Gore, I never really liked him. I was just settling for the lesser evil. That was before I was forced to see the hand of real evil slap the life out of this country. Then 5 years later I found out about Al Gore and his self funded, not publicized rescue effort during the first days after Katrina hit the Gulf Coast and the Levees were blown to clear some prime real estate for development by the same criminal syndicate which had cleared so much in New York. A year and a half ago, I found out about this, wrote about it, and really learned something from it.
Well, I finally found some photos from Gore's heroic effort. Just to make it perfectly clear, I am going to also put some of Bush's best photo op pictures to compare them to. See if you can tell what it is that separates these two men. Which one would you rather have running this country?
There's Bush, 4 days into the disaster, having a friendly chat with his buddies. The helicopters and their crews, taken off of rescue operations, cleaned, polished and deployed as the backdrop for this photo op. This wasn't even an actual strategy meeting. Just a scripted photo op to appease the public audience and glorify our fearless leader.
Next is Gore, fighting to get a plane which he personally paid for, flew into "Hell" inside of and got back out of Hell twice with full loads of people who desperately needed a hero. For years I have heard people say ,
"Gore would have done the same." or "Like Gore would have done any better."
Well, it would appear that he is more than capable of outperforming the entire Federal Government when needed. And when I say outperformed, I mean physically, mentally and emotionally performed... Not to be mistaken with the performance of the Mime troupe we've been stuck with for 6 years. Gore is a bit stiff. Actually he is down right hard and tough, as a leader must be in times that call on them to step up and lead . There is nothing casual about heroism. There shouldn't be anything casual about the Leader of our Nation during Emergency or War. The job is too important to be guided by a PR firm.
