On ABC’s “This Week,” Gore was asked if he thought political motives are driving the White House’s Iraq policy. He said: “The reason I don’t want to accuse them of bending our entire national security policy to fit their political designs is, it’s such a serious charge. You don’t know what’s inside their hearts.”
During the same interview, however, Gore was asked about Bush’s economic policy. He volunteered: “Tax cuts aimed at the very wealthiest Americans, designed to take effect several years from now, that’s not an economic policy. That is greed and political payback.”
Funny how Gore can’t pierce the veils covering the hearts of the Bush Administration when it comes to their motives on national security. But he’s got keen X-ray vision when it comes to the innermost feelings of the administration on economic policy.
