Marsha Blackburn is No Match for Al Gore

I saw this at Taylor Marsh's site this morning. It was a pitiful attempt by Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn to corner Al Gore into saying that his work on protecting the environment for 30 years was for "personal benefit." Here's the clip from C-SPAN:

Al Gore called her on the carpet. And Marsha Blackburn looked like a fool.

Republicans haven't figured out how to score points gracefully and with whom after their big loss last November. Marsha Blackburn, who is from Al Gore's home state, obviously doesn't understand how to pick a bone with a Nobel Laureate.

Ed Markey was correct that Al Gore hasn't changed his tune or practices about global warming and Gore is a great patriot in wanting to save our planet. I don't care if Al Gore personally made some money from it, but he says it goes into a non-profit and I believe him.

  • Just seemed like a dumb thing to try, but it isn't the first time it's been tried with Gore.

  • Marsha Blackburn is certainly no match for Gore. He is a pathological liar. Look into his finances and you will see that he has not, by any means, put all his global warming profits into a non-profit organization. That is unless his personal assets count. I live in TN. We know Al Gore here. He was not super rich when he left public office. He is now. He makes his living off of books, personal appearances and investments in the cap and trade, global warming "business." He is also a hypocrit about conserving energy. He will use more energy and has a larger "carbon footprint" in one year than the average U.S. citizen will in 25 years. If you believe him, you need to do some serious research. Or keep drinking the Kool-Aid. P.S. Another interesting project would be to look up all the fabrications he's told about his personal life and accomplishments over the years. Now, that's some good reading.
