Media shits on Gore's speech: "Constitutional Crisis"

On MLK day, Al Gore's speech also shunned by the Media

Al Gore delivered an incredible speech today where he ate the Bush Crime Family alive for their blatant disrespect for our Constitution. On Crooks & Liars they posted this quote explaining how the Traditional Media treated this historic speech:
"If a tree falls in a forest... A former Vice-President of the United States delivers a major speech accusing George W. Bush of breaking the law. What do all three cable news nets cover under the "Breaking News" banner? An overturned tanker truck on a New York highway."

Everyone and their mother who saw the speech on CSPAN is scrambling to get it out by bootlegging DVDs or circulating mass emails with the video. Fourty-something years after Dr. King's death and our struggle for peace and justice continues. Check out these quotes from Al Gore's speech as posted on RawStory.com:
When President Bush failed to convince Congress to give him all the power he wanted when they passed the AUMF, he secretly assumed that power anyway, as if congressional authorization was a useless bother. But as Justice Frankfurter once wrote: "To find authority so explicitly withheld is not merely to disregard in a particular instance the clear will of Congress. It is to disrespect the whole legislative process and the constitutional division of authority between President and Congress."

It is this same disrespect for America's Constitution which has now brought our republic to the brink of a dangerous breach in the fabric of the Constitution. And the disrespect embodied in these apparent mass violations of the law is part of a larger pattern of seeming indifference to the Constitution that is deeply troubling to millions of Americans in both political parties.

Thank God a majority of Americans agree with impeachment on the grounds of this wiretapping crime committed by the Bush Crime Family. Read the full Al Gore speech and tell a friend or two... the Traditional Media wont do it but the blogs and "we the people" sure will. We're all we got!

Great post, and conservatives who talk about "the liberal media" are clueless. It's not liberal so much as scared. Why else wouldn't this be bigger news.

After Katrina, a doctor who knew Gore called him to say he had patients in dire need. Gore reached into his own pocket and paid for two planes full of patients to be lifted out of there. He acted swiftly and didn't want publicity from it.

He would have handled 9/11 and Katrina better.
