A comment by Iwo Gina on Everyday Hero stands up to Al Gore the Scaremonger
Cobaltberet: I sometimes wonder about Kerry's service record as well - hard to tell what really happened to him and when. I just flat out don't believe a word he says.
Gore's disdain of the Military is a well-known fact. He is also known to embelish his accomplishments - his ill-chosen words in an early interview stating that he "took the initiative in creating the Internet", when in fact what he did was sponsor funding for the creation of the Internet is the classic example. His political ambitions far and away negate his good intentions, and we all know what road is paved with good intentions! Many Gore supporters claim that his words are taken out of context. Well, if he'd been a bit more accurate in his initial statement, it wouldn't have left any room for misinterpretation. But it's my opinion that such ambiguously worded statements are intentional, in the hopes that anyone not familiar with the evolution of a product or event or institution, etc. will be hood-winked enough to think more of the man that what he really is - a politician, first, last, and always.
