Rick Perry: Why I Backed Al Gore

Rick Perry backed an already-climate-crusading Al Gore in ’88

Texas Gov. Rick Perry may have forgotten a thing or two about the Al Gore presidential campaign he helped lead in 1988.

In an interview with an Iowa radio station on Monday, the Republican presidential contender explained his role as the Gore campaign’s Texas chairman by saying that “this was Al Gore before he invented the Internet and got to be Mr. Global Warming.”

But in fact, global warming was already a significant theme for Gore in 1987 and 1988 — long before his activism led to several books, a Nobel Prize and a part in an Academy Award-winning film. It was also well before the right gave him the “Mr. Ozone” nickname and talk radio heaped endless mockery on the future vice president.

Gore, then a young Tennessee senator trying to break out in a crowded Democratic field, mentioned the warming planet as one of his priorities for his presidential campaign in April 1987, according to news coverage at the time.

  1. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future. Are you a Mitt Romney,Rick Perry,Michele Bachmann or a Obama Nazi boot-licker who seems to gain pleasure in licking Mitt Romney,Rick Perry,Michele Bachmann or Obama boots in between having anal sex with other fellow boot-lickers.wake-up.

  2. Perry is an opportunist.
    he does not have his own belief or principle..
    just obey the power / elites.

  3. He backed him…well ,those Bohemian Grove homosexuals like it from the back

    and as they are part of one big group there is no problem backing each other,no matter republican or democrat,the sheeple will accept it.
    Perry won”t be president anyway.He was only sent to beat Ron Paul.

  4. The real reason Rick Perry backed Al Gore is because Al Gore promised him a meat injectin in his backside, lots of money and all the child sex slaves he wanted if Rick Perry backed Al Gore who was in fact a globalist loving pedophile who supports mass genocide just like the Illuminati, the Bilderberg Group and the other globalist scum who likes to eat dog turds.

    • You want the truth about the NWO?

      A coup d’etat started in 2008 with the presidential election.

      Obama is the acting president. He disappeared for 2 weeks after his election win only to reappear looking exhausted sitting next to John McCain, with a bad poker face, for a press photo shoot. Obama was turned into a puppet for the Pentagon.

      Osama Bin Laden appears to be a code created by the New World Order. The NWO consists of some of the richest people in the world with the goal of overthrowing the US government, some from inside our own government. They are also trying to collapse our currency and appear to be behind all of the “buy gold” hype, not to mention tens of thousands of money making opportunities online and late night infomercials. They’re positioned to make billions by destroying our economy.

      The attacks on 9/11 appear to be attacks on capitalism and part of the plan to an all out overthrow of our system of government. The people that make up the New World Order are media moguls, CEO’s and many others elitists. The coup d’etat is also the reason why the CEOs who ran in the last midterm didn’t get elected and why the republicans are taking over.

      You will not read about this in the media. Most of the media now has been forced to cooperate or have been paid to cooperate.

      Here’s what Osama, Obama, Biden, Bin Laden, the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists, and Sarah Palin had to do with the last election and the military’s overthrow of our government. Search ElectNoMoreSpys.blogspot

  5. first theres the guardasil garbage that killed and sterilized young girls,
    but where was rick perry when Texas Youth Authority was caught pimping out young boys?
    when it landed on the desk of attorney general alberto gonzales he dismissed it with
    “well maybe the boys enjoyed it”, and it wasnt investigated.
    when things got thick GWB let gonzales duck and run just like he did for rumsfeld..
    was rick perry killing young girls and sodomizing young boys?
    were alberto gonzales and rick perry regular customers?

    we know GWB was a gay alcoholic male cheerleading powderhead who had his pilots license revoked for refusing to take a drug test, that they had an “intervention” to change his charachter to groom his sorry-azz personality to be president for cheney to continue daddy’s agendas.

    now we see he was involved with the “crazed sex poodle” al gore who they refused to put into a courtroom, gee why does that sound familiar? gore who invested multi-millions into the business of carbon credit trading, and where the hell did such a 3rd rate politician get multi-millions?!
    what’s perry’s net worth now and where did it come from? nafta superhighway payola?
    profits from eminent domain land grabs and doubling taxes? big pharma kickbacks for killing young girls? kickbacks from the Texas Youth Authority? I think he oughtta be investigated along with his buddy al gore.

  6. Of COURSE “NOW”, hes going to SAY THAT . . . Give me a “BREAK”. Hes nothing but a “LIEING CLOWN” . . . kinda reminds me of “Obama”, . . . he “CAN’T” tell the TRUTH, either.

  7. So.. is this the thanks he gets for helping “mr ozone”? The way all of these bastards are connected is sick.. When anyone goes to fill out an application they are asked if they are related to anyone in the company before hire. It seems you can’t get the job of president of America unless every dick that’s ever walked up those steps has been in your mouth. Oh.. and Ted Turner’s also.

  8. Big Brother has selected its alternative candidate as the symbolic head of the republocrat party. Choose between your preselected and party authorized candidates. Double Plus Ungood.

    Ingsoc on steroids


    Ignorance is strength

  9. Yeah, gee, no big deal, that was way back when Gore was merely a hardcore lefty socialist liberal — what’s the problem?
