By The Right Scoop


Apparently Obama was ‘cautious’ in his first term, not because he wanted to get reelected, but because Fox News, a ’24/7 propaganda masquerading as news’ and right-wing talk radio created a ‘hostile environment for progressive ideas':

ROSE: Why do you think [Obama] was cautious in the first four years?

GORE: Because…

ROSE: … he is a cautious man?

GORE: I think it has been a pretty hostile environment for progressive ideas.

ROSE: And why is that? That you’re saying it’s a very hostile environment for progressive ideas because of the importance of money in corporations or…

GORE: And Fox News and the right-wing talk radio. And yeah I mean, it’s not that complicated. In Tennessee there’s an old saying if you see a turtle on a fence post you can be pretty sure it didn’t get there by itself. And the fact that we have 24/7 propaganda masquerading as news, it does have an impact.

You can go to Fox Nation and watch the video but the quality is pretty low.

At this point I think, at least for talk radio, if people like Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh could stop Obama just by creating a “hostile environment for progressive ideas” from their microphones, they would indeed. But it’s clear based on the last election that Fox News and Talk Radio isn’t enough. So while I’m sure some would love to take credit for anything that stops Obama, what Gore is saying just isn’t true.

And Obama has done far more behind the scenes with his EPA on climate change than Al Gore even wants to admit. And regarding Obamacare, well, the left had super majorities needed to pass it. The reason the public option didn’t get in the bill is because of the left, not the right.

But the real truth is that Obama only intended to do so much because he wanted to get reelected. Unfortunately after 2014 that will no longer be a big issue for him. And it’s not gonna be good.

    “ROSE: Why do you think [Obama] was cautious in the first four years?”

    Holy crap, the last 4 years Obama was cautious?!?!?! He ran through the Constitution like a train going through a chain link fence. We all better buckle down because if the first 4 was considered “cautious” then this next 4 years will certainly be much more interesting. (I have a thing for understatements.)

    • PhillyCon

      I wouldn’t call bribing Senators, “deeming” bills, or holding votes at midnight to ram through gov’t takeovers as “cautious.”

      They are really a bunch of authoritarian thugs these Leftists. No wonder why they worship dictators such as Castro and Chavez.

  • hbnolikeee

    He Al Jezara, close your pie hole.

  • sjmom

    I always thought Gore was a little upside down in his thinking but now I know why. Since the Left doesn’t know the truth from a lie it has become difficult for them to distinguish the facts, such as Fox has more viewership than any other cable news network. Their hatred blinds them, their lies deceive them and their anger keeps them from any rational thought. In other words; they’re lost in more ways than one.

    Get better ideas and you would have more people agree you my sad little human = Al Gore

    They love saying progressive as if their ideas are progress our civilation to something better. When all they are doing is repeasting hsitory past mistakes with the same stupid ideas. Maybe they heard If you 1st don’t success try try again, sadly your suppose to learn from your 1st try and its mistakes.

      I’m just curious here, but why do you create 5 alter-egos just to “like” yourself? Likes don’t really mean anything anyway, and we get no prizes for them. I’m just curious.

      Btw, you forgot to use ‘god sayeth’ and ‘Fightfor ourfuture’.

      It’s really not that important, you know.

      You are sooo much kinder than I. Mr. Gore is obese! I don’t remember which late night worthless show he was just on but he had to sit sideways in the chair he was so fat. He is triple the size he was when running for office.

  • celestiallady

    Fox must be doing something right! when those on the left are backed into a corner they blame everyone and everything else.

    • Conniption Fitz

      No one needed FOX news to tell us Al’s and Obama’s progressivism was hocum and a scam.

      How naive and uneducated do they think we are?

  • PhillyCon

    These Leftists just looooooove the use of the straw man, don’t they? Or maybe, it’s the totalitarian in Gore (and Obama) who can’t believe that there is still opposition to them.

  • marketcomp

    Yeah, when Al Gore’s perverted a!! is in trouble with his progressive friends you can always blame FOX to bring them back together. They are sick sexual perverts, Al Gore, Menendez, Bill Clinton, and the list goes on and on.

    • crosshr

      well put McG !

  • Sober_Thinking

    I find it interesting that these degenerates are now coming out of the woodwork – even Obama himself, and are now openly condemning and lying about FNC and conservative talk shows. Sure, it was there before… but not this blatant or frequent. It’s like it’s no longer taboo to come right out and accuse conservatives and FNC by name of all sorts of heinous crimes and propaganda… which I might add, is what the left is guilty of.

    The MSM is the enemy of a free America. Period. It’s no wonder that they’re emboldened by the pariah’s ascension again. Except, now it has a bolder tone… they don’t even pretend so much anymore to be civil or respectful… they simply come straight out and lie or distort… It just seems more rampant now than before. And maybe that’s the plan…

    The only way to get the word out… to point out to the lemmings, moochers, sycophants and dumbmasses how stupid they are acting is through free talk radio, great Internet sites like TRS and of course, to a lesser degree, FNC. The MSM is at war with us and the truth. It’s no wonder they want to stop the flow of pure, clean water…

    God is always one step ahead of evil. He always leaves someone to speak the truth and to help people find their way in the wilderness. Evil would dearly love to corrupt that soft voice and the truth. It’s no wonder this goes on… God promised that it would.

  • kloyd0306

    I wonder when the left will find the word that describes their idealogy? Liberal – no. Democrat – no. Communist – no. Progressive – no.

    Oh, I get it – it’s ALL those those strung together…..

    Or perhaps they could try LIBIOTS….

  • deeme

    Wrong , you can blame my bible and God above, Conservatives never think brainwashing is a good idea..

  • http://www.paulbeyer.blogspot.com/ Paul Beyer

    Well I blame Al Gore for inventing the internet and claiming that just below the Earth’s crust it’s several million degrees hotter. Joking aside, Gore has now been completely revealed as a fraud in the MSM by the sale of his little network no one watched. The fascist left (and they are fascists as opposed to socialists) want to silent those that hold them accountable. That is how tyranny starts and ends. I find it both hysterical and scary all at the same time that the left continues to call us fascists when we’re the ones that want other viewpoints to be heard and discussed. Isn’t that a bit hypocritical coming from folks who call themselves “Liberals”? I learned from my time in college that the liberal ideology is a combination of smoke and mirrors. They want freedom as long as their rights are protected and their rivals are vilified. They no more want a debate, than #BARRYO wants to reduce the debt. These people want to squash debate and impose their progressive beliefs on us all. What is it going to take for American citizens to stand up and demand the debate? How long must we continue to call each other names as opposed to reaching compromised solutions? When will the media hold the elite political class accountable? These are questions that should be easy to answer based on the problems we have, yet they are so far from being resolved. We are in trouble and the Red Lights are blinking. Stop hitting the snooze America and wake the eff up!

    • notsofastthere

      Compromise? As long as Reid, Pelosi, Obama are there the word compromise means it’s done our way or not at all.
      Reid: no budget in 4 years and refuses to bring any Republican proposals up for debate. Name calling is a waste of time, but passing an unread healthcare bill in the dead of night is criminal. There can’t be compromise under those conditions.

    • tinlizzieowner

      I’ll tell ya what, I’ll bet Gore remembers Paul Harvey. I guess he’s ‘to blame’ too. ;-)
      This was 47 years ago. April 3, 1965. An amazing prediction.
      Millions of Americans listened to his programs which, were broadcast over 1,200 radio stations nationwide, while Gore’s ‘progressives’ were ‘going to San Francisco with flowers in their hair’.
      When you listen to this, remember the commentary was broadcast 47 years ago on April 3, 1965.
      It’s short…less than three minutes. You will be amazed.
