I was dining at at Alain Ducasse at the Essex House and as we were leaving, we saw the former Vice President leaving as well.

He looks much older and larger than he was when last I saw him on TV. Seemed like a very nice and cordial man.

I f anyone can find the cover of the Daily News for December 12, 2000 on line (because I couldn't) there's a classic picture of Gore on it, with a great caption. I have it on my fridge still.

Claim: Vice President Al Gore claimed that he "invented" the internet.
Status: False
Origins: Despite derisive references that continue even today, Al Gore did not claim that he "invented" the internet, nor did he say anything that could reasonably be interpreted that way.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v216/joespam/bendisPix/tmyk.jpg

Except, of course, for the fact that he didn't say that.

Wait... We don't want ditto-heads to explode?

And what's to argue, really? It's a statement of fact, what's the counter argument?

Rush Limbaugh said it many times. Rush Limbaugh, or anyone on Fox News(except Alan Colmes), is never ever wrong
ergo- that website is part of the liberal mainstream liberal media pinheads!

Oh, right... every once in a while, I forget that denying reality has been largely accepted as a legitimate debate tactic.

Sean Hannity has recanted on his radio show when he learned that Al Gore didn't say that

I liked his book.

I was forced to read Earth in the Balance in high school. Some of the ideas in it were pretty damn good. Makes you wonder why he didn't use his influence to get any of them through while he was VP.

I think it does sound like he's taking credit for the internet.
During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet. I took the initiative in moving forward a whole range of initiatives that have proven to be important to our country's economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our educational system.

He'd need to rebuild a lot before he could play in the big leagues. I don't know what he's been up to, though. I suppose he could work in the Democratic Party.

However, the second sentence clarifies that 'invented' is not what he means when he says 'created.'
If President Eisenhower had said in the mid-1960s that he, while President, "created" the Interstate Highway System, we would not have seen dozens and dozens of editorials lampooning him for claiming he "invented" the concept of highways or implying that he personally went out and dug ditches across the country to help build the roadway. Everyone would have understood that Ike meant he was a driving force behind the legislation that created the highway system, and this was the very same concept Al Gore was expressing about himself with his Internet statement.

He's a 10th level vice-president.

true, although there is the implication that he did it alone.
The man did use "initiative" a lot.


He's a 10th level vice-president.

Unfortunately for his political career, current Senators & Governors vary from 8th level (Trent Lott/ the man from Texas whose name I can't remember/ the Gov of Louisiana) to 25th level (McCain) and a former mayor of New York is in the 20-something level.
