“Al Gore Would Have Defeated George W. Bush If He Won New Hampshire in 2000”

Don’t you just love these hacks ignoring the uncomfortable truth? Sure, Al Gore would have won the 2000 election if he won New Hampshire. Or Florida.

Or maybe his home state of Tennessee.

Anyway, that absurd statement comes from a Democrat in Massachusetts, where today the fundraiser-in-chief will be visiting for another series of shakedowns.

Depending on what the Supreme Court rules today, it could be a very depressed crowd.

President Obama, feeling the heat after a few tough weeks, is doing what he needs to win with his trip to New England today — going after swing voters and raising money, Democrats and other observers say.

He’ll do the first in New Hampshire this afternoon, where he is engaging directly in a head-to-head fight for four electoral votes with GOP challenger Mitt Romney, who has made repeated visits in recent weeks. He’ll do the second in Massachusetts tonight, with three fundraisers targeting high powered supporters and their big bucks.

“This is going to be a very close election as it was in 2000 and 2004,” said Phil Johnston, former chairman of the state Democratic Party. “Every electoral vote becomes crucial in a close race … It’s embedded in the memory of every Democrat that Al Gore would have defeated George W. Bush if he won New Hampshire in 2000.”

When these folks forecast a close election for their allegedly popular president, you can assume they fear the worst.

They should.

Obama will hold a speech at the Oyster River High School in Durham, N.H., today before attending fundraisers in the Boston area, including a $40,000-a-head round table discussion with 25 people at Hamersley’s Bistro in the South End; a sold-out fund raiser at Symphony Hall with tickets at $250 to $10,000; and a dinner at the Weston home of Judith and Douglass Krupp with tickets costing nearly $18,000 each.

Obama already has raised more than $7.7 million in the Bay State in this election cycle, while Romney, a former Bay State governor, has pulled in $4.9 million.

But one top Bay State Democratic operative and Obama supporter said the president’s visit sets off alarms for the health of his campaign fund raising.

“There’s no reason for him to spend any time in Massachusetts other than he’s obviously desperate for money. That’s not a great sign,” said the activist, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “I think there’s significant cause for concern on a number of fronts.”

Another concern is that fake Cherokee Lizzie Warren.

U.S. Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren will take the stage to introduce her former boss President Obama to 1,700 people who’ve paid from $250 to $10,000 to see him at Symphony Hall tonight, but she said there are no plans as yet for Obama to step up for her in a public rally or a fundraiser.

I think the two frauds together would send a very powerful message. Do we want more of this incompetence of two people who can’t even admit who they really are?

    “Do we want more of this incompetence of two people who can’t even admit who they really are?”

    “Can’t” implies a lack of ability to do something. “Won’t” – will not – admit who they really are is closer to the mark. Both of these… people… have made a conscious decision to hide the truth of who they really are. In simpler terms, they lied. And continue to lie.

    Any news on how the Secret Service will handle this event? Herefter to be known as: “What the fork is going on”?

    I really don’t think Zero will give much face time in support of Fauxahontas. I mean, there is only room on the stage for one fake life story isn’t there? If SNL had any principles whatsoever they would rip the two of them appearing together to shreds!! Alas, despite the inherent comedy of it, it wouldn’t happen anyway.
    By the way, Blue Hen, it’s only gatherings of Latinos that the Secret Service has a problem with when it comes to cutlery.
    You’d think they would be offended, wouldn’t you?
    I wonder if there’s a tipping point, a certain number of Latinos at a dinner before the silverware is deemed dangerous?

    One of my favorite genres of science fiction is the type wherein a known historical event is reversed in some way so that a different outcome ensues. The story then chronicles life with a different historical reality. An example is “The Difference Engine” (1990) wherein the Victorian Age has modern computing power. This is one of those items whch could very well make a compelling alternate history novel (not for the faint of heart) Thank God for the good folks of Tennessee, New Hampshire and Florida in seeing through one of our country’s greatest phonies and relegating him to the trash heap of history! Can you imagine 9/11 with that putz at the helm?

    All done on your dime.

    Don’t you feel better now?

    If Gore had won ANY of the following:

    1. the home State of the incumbent President (Arkansas);

    2. the home State of the running Democratic candidate (his own home State of Tennessee);

    3. the home State of the only other living former Democratic President (Carter, from Georgia);

    4. the home State of the senior Democrat in the Senate (Tom Daschle, from South Dakota); or

    5. the home State of the senior Democrat in the House of Representatives (Dick Gephardt, from Missouri)

    he wouldn’t have needed Florida at all, but who needs reality when you have a polemic?
