    Politix: And Gore's hypocrisy goes deeper, according to Goldberg. "It also turns out that Gore - whose picture you see if you look up the word -'liberal' in the dictionary - wanted to close the deal before December 31. Why? Because he reportedly is making about $100 million on the sale and ...(wait for it)... wanted to avoid the higher tax rates on people like him that went into effect on January 1 of this year."

    Liberals always want to hike up taxes for everyone else, yet they don't want to pay those taxes themselves. Very interesting. Very, very interesting.

    Neo you calling anyone a hypocrite??? He's an outstanding example of the bedrock of American capitalism. He created and now has sold a piece of s..t to the Arabs for $100mil. Time Warner just announced they will pull the plug on the channel so the Arabs really got taken.
    What's your problem with a man trying to maximize his profits on a deal , very interesting, I'd call it smart business. You prefer he act like a commie???? This is a sin by tea party doctrine? The IRS makes the rules, only a fool doesn't take advantage and close sooner rather than later. Very interesting ??? Yes interesting if you what to learn how entrepreneurial / capitalism works

    "according to Goldberg" ,right. Well I looked up liberal and guess what? No picture at all. Perhaps you and Bernie are ready to move up to books without pictures and only simple sentences. A rich man that makes business deals to his best advantage and avoids taxes? What a shocker.

    @martydotcom Exactly my point. How can all the people who praise capitalism even be upset about this? They should all be bowing down in and giving him congratulations.

    @martydotcom - To be honest I've never watch Current TV and have no interests or concerns about it one way or the other. I agree with most of what you said to be honest. Yes, it is capitalism. Nothing wrong with that. So, you see, we agree on a great many things here.

    However, with all of that said in the first paragraph we still find ourselves at a point where the question is, why did I call Gore a hypocrite? Well, the answer is quite simple. Why does he and the rest of the left support increasing taxes, yet they themselves don't want to pay increased taxes? I'm not against Gore keeping more of his money that he earned through honest capitalistic ventures. In fact, I applaud it. I'm against the left trying to prevent anyone else from enjoying more of their money that they have earned. Cut the tax rate for everyone, not just the greedy pigs on the left. Geitner comes to mind.

    Yeap, 100% correct. Just like all those actors that support Obama, you know where 90% of movies are filmed now? Canada. You know why? Much lower taxes.
    Whats that boys name that played in that movie about the Titanic, Leonardo De Crapio, or something? Lmao
    Well he is a huge green freak and a bigger Gore supporter, and Obama lover. Yet claiming to be a big enviromental freak, you know what he did for new years eve? He chartered a 747 jet so that he and his friends could spend all night flying to different time zones and watch the new year come in multiple times.
    Well as long as he is screwing up the enviroment for something important.
    Hypocrisy at its finest.
    Thats how the Libreral mind works, I guess, do as I say, not as I do. Or maybe librerals feel better than the rest of us. I guess if they can get the rest of us to conform and give them everything we earned, then they can do whatever they would like.
    You know people would pay money to see this on the big screen. Yea a comedy movie Directed by Obama, a movie about Americans, in America, starring Americans, made for Americans.
    We may as well laugh at us, cause the rest of the world is.

    Why would this be a question? Of course he's a hypocrite. You don't rise to the level of National politics today without being a hypocrite (not unless you happen to be Ron Paul and look what happened for him. NOTHING). Americans are idiots. We vote party line and we vote looks and we vote money and we vote causes but what we don't vote is issues. We believe every lie just as long as it's told by "our side", we forgive every transgression just as long as it's "our side". The dumbing down of America marches on.

    "The dumbing down of America marches on." More like marched on. As in past tense. My reason why I'm independent. I can pick on both side with equal zest!

    @stepped_in_it this is one dumb nation. I'm just an average guy with a dated education who came from white trash. But I'm smarter than at least half of America. That's downright scary. So, just taking a look at it from a common sense viewpoint who would gain the most from dumbing down America? Well, hmmm...the ultra rich certainly would. Dumber people are the easier it is to steal from them. Politicians would benefit from a stupid America. Makes it easier to steal money from our taxes to give to the Ultra rich. On this one I'm going with the ultra rich as responsible for the dumbing down of America. It's more in their self interest than anyone Else's.

    What's your rant have to with Al Gore clearing a100 mil on a Piece Of S... cable Chanel which BTY Iscnow worth less than tham the Arabs paid as Time Warner just dropped the channel.
    Jessie, do you have a problem with Gore's entrepreneurial risk taking by starting up an unneeded, unwanted, channel and then scamming the Arabs to over pay. That's pure unbridled capitalism

    @martydotcom I don't have a problem with him doing that. What I have a problem with is his hypocrisy. As I do with all Politicians. He's not this great liberal, the great hope to save the environment. He's what he is. One of the rich who will say anything and do anything to make money. The fact he was a Dem has nothing to do with it. They only use party lines for propaganda. They don't live their own BS. And Al Gore is no different.

    @martydotcom and what my point is Marty is that when it's a democrat in the news the GOP paints it as a capital crime. When it's the GOP in the news the Dems paint it as a capital crime. My whole point is that Americans are stupid people if they believe any Politician beyond what they personally know of them. Gore is no better or worse than the rest.

    Yes he is the poster boy for hypocrite and liberalism. He like the rest feel the laws are made for the unwashed masses not people like him. The global warming scame blew up in his face when it was proven to be a lie. He flys around in his privet jets and them preaches how bad that is. Now he sold his TV station to terriosts and had to close deal before Jan 1st. To beat the higher taxes. I remember at one time he stated that everybody could pay their fair share of taxes.AAnother statement that does not apply to him or people like him. Another ass clown.

    A liberal Democrat criticized by Fox News and Commentary? Shocking!

    And meaningless. Bernie Goldberg wants to get on his high horse over where the Al Jazeera money comes from while conveniently ignoring the percentage of his own Fox salary that is derived from the Saudi investment in Fox.

    So let me get this straight. We're not allowed to call Al Gore, a crusader against carbon-based fuels, a hypocrite for selling Current TV to Al-Jazeera, a network that is owned and funded by oil money a hypocrite because some of the investors in FOXNews are Arab?
  • #28

    LOL - really you would even defend Al Gore? Wow, the man sold himself carbon credits on his own land for the tax break and his "Inconvenient Truth" book and film had so many mistakes in errors and outright lies in it that many schools in the US and the UK had to stop using it. Now you defend a progressive who tried as hard as he could to close the deal in 2012 to avoid those very taxes that progressives so dearly love? Sweetie, that's the epitome of a hypocrite. Rather than going off on the usual progressive rant about Fox News, how about you address the issue at hand? Or would that deny you your soap box? If so, rant on my man, no one is interested but it may save you from going postal.

    @Bobolinsky (Giggle) yep, I think you got that right, of course, the left could spin St. Patrick's Day so much that we would all be Wearin' O the Purple! They like nothing better than having it both, or even three, ways. No stance is stable enough for the progressives to defend it if the wind has changed direction. Blowin' in the wind takes on new meaning when one tries to understand the mind of a progressive.

    Progressive/Liberals/Democrats will be the only people shocked by this. The rest of us know all of this smoke and mirrors is just to jingle shiny keys in front of the various allocated groups of “progressive” children. Some of the kids like the “clean environmental” keys. That was his sales pitch. Bottom line all logical humans want to be successful. Al-Gore is no different. The difference is most of us rely on ourselves to do this. The problem is progressives rely on us as well.

    Al Gore has been a hypocrite since day one. Telling Americans to conserve and go green when his mansion burns through $30,000 of electricity every month. Telling Americans to buy cheap alternative vehicles when he flies everywhere in leerjets and travels in a fleet of SUVs when on the ground. Telling Americans to go vegan when he's gorging on filet mignon. And now added to the list of his hypocritical ways, selling his failed TV network to a bunch of oil sheiks (when Glenn Beck offered him even more money). Yep, Al Hypocrite Gore...

    Good for him!

    Such things bring to light the stupidity of those who follow folks like Gore no matter what.

    Hint to liberals: He is cashing in on your stupidity.

    @Jeff_Woehrle climate change has nothing to do with Al Gore, therefore I will not be sending him a check. How can the many who who lack an understanding of the science (most people of course) nonetheless attack the science on ideological grounds and think they hold a rationally valid opinion?
  • #130

    @Russell797 My valid opinion also has nothing to do with Al Gore.

    It's just fascinating how Gore has played rubes with his tales of the planet 's 'feee-vur' as he laughs all the way to the bank.

    You've been fooled. And that is easy to understand.***smirk***

    @Jeff_Woehrle As a member of Union of Concerned Scientist and one who respects the National Academy of Science and the many other science bodies world wide who endorse the consensus, along with a sound personal understanding of the radiative physics involved, I will respectfully disagree.

    Yes he's a huge hypocrite.
    Doesn't change my position on global warming. We need to stop voting for Demopublicans and vote for the Green Party or if you're more conservative vote for the Libertarian Party. America would be a much better place if the main two parties were the Greens and the Libertarians.

    Funny how just a month or so after Al Gore gave an interview and talked about how the rich should do their best to to pay their fair share... he scramble to get this deal done before the first of the year to avoid paying a higher capital gains tax. that's the Democrats that's their ideology. maybe not the rank and file the auto worker but that's the leaders thinking process they are the elite they want to tell you how to do things what you should do but they're going to do their own way. wake up people.

    I find this hypocritical. However I do not believe those who believe in capitalism at all costs should have anything to say. After all this is capitalism at work at its best.

    This was an easy one, we've known that Al was a hypocrite for years now. He even scurried trying to get the deal done in 2012 to avoid the very taxes that all progressives deem part of the top earners "fair share", betcha we don't see Al making a voluntary contribution to the Fed. to pay his "fair share". He even sold "carbon credits" to himself to avoid taxes, this man is out for #1, always has been.
