Relocated material from article page -- while an interesting point it seems off topic to me. Perhaps it is more appropriate elsehwere. I also deleted the attempt to draw a parallel between Bush and Hitler. --Bob Burton 01:24, 8 Oct 2004 (EDT)

In a speech before college students, Tuesday, November 25, 2003, at Murfreesboro, TN, Former Vice President Al Gore, said that the Bush administration is using fear as a political tool."

"'For the President of the United States to claim in a television ad that those who disagreed with the decision to go to war with Iraq are against attacking terrorists is a disgrace,' said Gore, who lost the 2000 election to President George W. Bush.

"It is a cheap and petty political tactic not worthy of the presidency. It is something you would find in a down-and-dirty sleazy campaign for city council,' Gore added, drawing laughs from the partisan crowd at Middle Tennessee State University."[1]
