And people thought Quayle wasn't bright... : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

For all of you who are leaning towards voting for A. Gore, here are a few of his most revealing statements.

"If we don't succeed, we run the risk of failure."

"Democrats understand the importance of bondage between a mother and child."

"Welcome to President Clinton, Mrs. Clinton, and my fellow astronauts."

"Mars is essentially in the same orbit... Mars is somewhat the same distance from the Sun, which is very important. We have seen pictures where there are canals, we believe, & water. If there is water we can breathe."

"The Holocaust was an obscene period in our nation's history. I mean in this century's history. But we all lived in this century. I didn't live in this century."

"I believe we are on an irreversible trend toward more freedom and democracy, but that could change."

"One word sums up probably the responsibility of any vice president that one word is 'to be prepared'."

"Verbosity leads to unclear, inarticulate things."

"I have made good judgments in the past. I have made good judgments in the future."

"The future will be better tomorrow."

"We're going to have the best-educated American people in the world."

"People that are really very weird can get into sensitive positions and have a tremendous impact on history."

"I stand by all the misstatements that I've made." "We have a firm commitment to NATO, we are a *part* of NATO. We have a firm commitment to Europe. We are a *part* of Europe."

"Public speaking is very easy."

"I am not part of the problem. I am a Democrat."

"A low voter turnout is an indication of fewer people going to the polls."

"When I have been asked who caused the riots and the killing in L.A., my answer has been direct & simple: Who is to blame for the riots? The rioters are to blame. Who is to blame for the killings? The killers are to blame."

"Illegitimacy is something we should talk about in terms of not having it."

"We are ready for any unforeseen event that may or may not occur.

"For NASA, space is still a high priority."

"Quite frankly, teachers are the only profession that teach our children."

"The American people would not want to know of any misquotes that Al Gore may or may not make."

"We're all capable of mistakes, but I do not care to enlighten you on the mistakes we may or may not have made."

"It isn't pollution that's harming the environment. It's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it."

"[It's] time for the human race to enter the solar system."

"As many of you know, I was very instrumental in the founding of the Internet"

So whatta ya think?

Those are better than bumper-sticker. In fact, they would make GREAT bumper-sticker. Thanks for the laugh!!!!!!!!!

Doreen! That's a rite smart bunch of readin. My old belly is sore from laughin! It brings to mind some other things too. "Read my lips" for one from a few years ago. I hardly take the time to enjoy the famous or infamous quotes of our fearless leaders. Why bother-they all seem to be idiots. As far as Dan Quayle goes-he would've been a much better choice than georgie bush jr. He had morals but just couldn't spell. I can't spell either so no big deal there. He didn't open his mouth and put hisn' foot in it like georgie bush jr did couple days ago. Who cares how you spell tater or mater, I don't. Wished I'd been the one to invent the internet---! And on it goes! Matt. 24;44

I'll go to my urn believing George, Sr. could have beat Clinton if he had chosen someone other than Danny Boy as his running mate. By his second term people were asking themselves if they really wanted him 'one heartbeat' away from being President.

Doreen, thanks! You have helped me start my morning with giggles and more giggles!! Ahh.... aint it great? Have a great day!! God Bless! Wendy

He entered the solar system a long time ago!

Thanks for the laugh.

i liked old Danny Boy and would vote for him in a second. he couldn't spell, so what at least he was moral,honest and never sold us out to the chineese. look at Mr. Gore, how can a person spend the last 8 years surrounded by crooks and not be dirty. he is either real stupid or real crooked or maybe he isn't man enough to speak out about the current administration. i can not beleive that after having a bold faced lying weasel in office for so long that any American with half a brain is considering voting for his partner in crime. P.S. i really enjoy this forum. i get home from work at 6a.m. and read it whle waiting for my family to wake up.

-- Greg James (, September 09, 2000.

Hee hee! The solar system one has been circulated for a long time, attributed to Dan Quayle! I suspect that these all get recycled and attributed to whomever, on whatever occasion. I'm sure some are probably true. And I'm not defending Al Gore!

-- sheepish (, September 09, 2000.

Actually, upon re-reading, I think most of them were on the web, attributed to Quayle, at least a year ago. I remember sending them to friends on email from work, and I haven't been at a paid job for a year. They are still hilarious, however! I'll see if I can dig up the website...

-- sheepish (, September 09, 2000.

Here's the source, I think (my old link is stored on my old hard drive):

of course, the "inventor of the internet" one, is all Gore!

-- sheepish (, September 09, 2000.

Wow. I am sorry. I had them sent to me as Gore quotes! The pollution one I received a long time ago in another email which just had a bunch of beautiful politicians statements....I thought of Quayle and his poor abilities at expressing things all on my own. Anyhow, they are still funny!

-- Doreen (, September 09, 2000.

Quite honestly, I haven't heard anything too bright from any politicians for quite a while! So the humor is appreciated!

-- sheepish (, September 10, 2000.


I guess you've never mispoken even once in your whole life eh? What if someone kept track of every stupid thing you ever said.

-- Debra (, September 12, 2000.

I have said more stupid things than you could fit on this entire forum. I am not asking for your vote for the Highest Elected Position in the World, and I didn't say the dumb things to reporters either. Man, it's not too hard for me to laugh at myself either.
