Has The Algore No Shame?

From Breitbart/AP:
The White House accused former Vice President Al Gore of hypocrisy Tuesday for his assertion that President Bush broke the law by eavesdropping on Americans without court approval. "If Al Gore is going to be the voice of the Democrats on national security matters, we welcome it," White House press secretary Scott McClellan...

Gore called the program, authorized by President Bush, "a threat to the very structure of our government" and charged that the administration acted without congressional authority and made a "direct assault" on a federal court set up to authorize requests to eavesdrop on Americans.
Apparently it was fine by you when your former boss Bill "Slick Willie" Clinton went even further than the current administration has. Even the self proclaimed moral guide for America, Jimmy "Dhimmi" Carter eavesdropped without warrants. I guess it's do as I say, not as I do, right Algore?
McClellan said the Clinton-Gore administration had engaged in warrantless physical searches, and he cited an FBI search of the home of CIA turncoat Aldrich Ames without permission from a judge. He said Clinton's deputy attorney general, Jamie Gorelick, had testified before Congress that the president had the inherent authority to engage in physical searches without warrants.

"I think his hypocrisy knows no bounds," McClellan said of Gore.
Please, hypocrisy and liberals go together like oreos and milk! That's true of any politician, especially one like the Algore who's carrying around a big angry chip on his shoulder.
On CNN's "Larry King Live," [Attorney General Alberto] Gonzales said Gore's comments were inconsistent with Clinton administration policy.

"It's my understanding that during the Clinton administration there was activity regarding physical searches without warrants," Gonzales said. "I can also say it's my understanding that the deputy attorney general testified before Congress that the president does have the inherent authority under the Constitution to engage in physical searches without a warrant. And so, those would certainly seem to be inconsistent with what the former vice president was saying today."
Well, give the Algore some credit Mr. Attorney General, at least he's consistent in his inconsistency.
