Former Vice President Al Gore threw his support behind the Occupy Wall Street protests Wednesday night, arguing that the country’s elected officials have failed the public on everything “from the economy to the climate crisis.”
I might say the country’s elected officials have failed us on their Constitutional oaths, failed us on fiscal responsibility, and failed us on defending our individual freedoms. But even if I did, I’ll bet that Al Gore’s plan and mine would be very different, because I’d want to do something other than fail more and fail harder.
Al Gore is a Harvard educated politician with a personal net worth of over $100 million. If the kids wanted to protest something, it should be Al Gore.
