Al Gore against any attempt to impeach Bush


WASHINGTON: Former US vice president Al Gore, a staunch critic of George W Bush, has said he doesn't agree with calls for impeaching the president due to lack of "time" and "consensus."

Many democrats feel that Bush should be impeached for allegedly misleading the country deliberately in the lead up to the war in Iraq.

"With a year and a half to go in his term and with no consensus in the nation as a whole to support such a proposition, any realistic analysis of that as a policy option would lead one to question the allocation of time and resources," Gore said during an interview with PBS.

Pressed on whether he believed that impeachment is a good use of time, Gore replied, "I don't think it is. I don't think it would be successful."

On being asked whether he threw the towel in too soon in the 2000 presidential elections, where he narrowly lost to Bush, Gore said he had taken the fight as far as he could, and the only other option left was a "violent revolution".

"I took it all the way to a final Supreme Court decision. And in our system, there is no intermediate step between a final Supreme Court decision and violent revolution. So, at that point, having taken it as far as one could, then the question becomes, are we going to be a nation of laws and not people?" Gore replied.

"Do I support the rule of law, even though I disagree with the Supreme Court's decision? I did disagree with it, and I think that those of us who disagreed with it will have the better of the argument in history," he added.

how totally out of character. Al has always been really good at saying what we want to hear, and seems so sincere when he does it.

But does the revolution have to be a violent one? If so, that would make the revolutionaries essentially no different than the oppressors they are fighting.... there has to be a better answer!

Al Gore is a globalist. His concerns for our environment may be genuine, but I feel he is an opportunist and two faced.

Violence as like with everything else has an appropriate place.

When Ghandi wrote a letter to Stalin suggesting that the Russians use non-violence against the advancing German armies, where would that have gotten them? 27 million russians were killed in that war, how many more would it have been had they sat down and taken the bayonette?

Would the American revolution been successful if we petitioned Britan to leave us alone? Maybe if we asked really really nicely. But I doubt it.

I don't believe that. I do believe in non-violent revolution. It can't happen if you don't believe in it, though. If the Russians had all sat down peacefully rather than fighting back, would the German soldiers have been able to fire upon them? Some would, but some would have started seeing the lack of reason behind following those orders to kill. And once a few start listening to their hearts rather than their leaders, it's not so scary anymore. People can overcome their fear and do what they know, deep down inside, is right. You gotta believe in humanity's ability to govern itself. People are not stupid, nor are they evil, they are just afraid.
