Former VP Unloads on President: Patriotic or Not?

He betrayed us! He played on our fears!

How dare the incompetent and willful members of this [...] administration humiliate our nation and our people in the eyes of the world and in the conscience of our own people. How dare they subject us to such dishonor and disgrace. How dare they drag the good name of the United States of America through the mud....

At first, I thought maybe the President's advisers were a big part of the problem.... I called on the President to get rid of his whole economic team and pick a new group.

The [...] Administration routinely shows disrespect for that whole basic process, and I think it's partly because they feel as if they already know the truth and aren't very curious to learn about any facts that might contradict it. They and the members of groups that belong to their ideological coalition are true believers in each other's agendas.

A president who breaks the law is a threat to the very structure of our government.

I think [he] has a warm, engaging personality. But, you know, the presidency is more than just a popularity contest.

The administration has developed a highly effective propaganda machine to imbed in the public mind mythologies that grow out of the one central doctrine that all of the special interests agree on.

The President's men have minced words about America's laws.

While [the president] likes to project an image of strength and courage, the real truth is that in the presence of his large financial contributors, he is a moral coward.

This shameful exercise of power overturns a set of principles that our nation has observed since General Washington first enunciated them during our Revolutionary War and has been observed by every president since then - until now.

All of the statements above were made by former Vice President Al Gore about President George W. Bush.
