You won’t believe Al Gore’s explanation for Obama’s big debate loss

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

After the shock of the brilliant orator’s embarrassing defeat wore off, the left has stumbled back to their feet to offer excuses. He underestimated, he was tired, it was Jim Lehrer’s fault and on and on. But the most unbelievable excuse of the night came from Al Gore, who blamed the altitude.

“One of the greatest pieces of audio you’ll ever, ever, ever hear. This is going to go down in the world record books as the quintessential excuse,” Glenn said.

Don’t believe us? WATCH

“I’m going to say something controversial here,” Gore said. “Obama arrived in Denver at 2 p.m. today – just a few hours before the debate started. Romney did his debate prep in Denver. When you go to 5,000 feet, and you only have a few hours to adjust – I don’t know…”

Glenn, Stu and Pat could not believe that a news host, much less someone who was nearly President of the United States, would use altitude sickness as an excuse.

“Can we just stop and think about for a second that this man was 537 votes from being President of the United States,” Stu said.

    Well, if Algore is right (yeah sure!) then Romney, who prepped in Denver, showed better judgement by arriving early. Just saying. Of course, we all know Algore is delusional as usual.

    Al Gore lives in a world where air is as rarified and common sense and thinking about matters before opening mouth to insert foot.

  • MarsBarsTru7

    Don’t blame Al.

    The state of the environment is to blame. The only reason Denver is 5,000 ft above sea level is because George Bush and the Christian conservatives created global warming. First New Orleans was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina because of it, and now Denver is thrust up almost a mile above sea level!

    Next thing you know, poor Al will walk out his front door and be faced with getting into a limousine. Cars are stretching and becoming less fuel efficient because of global warming too! And private jets are a necessity for people like Al since all the infrastructure is clogged with other people. People are now reproducing too much because it’s extra hot.

    Geez. Back in the day Al’s forebears knew how to handle environmental issues. Just advocate segregation. Everyone forgot how effective it was so when Al first got into office he negotiated to have industrial waste dumped in his district just so it wouldn’t be dumped anywhere else. He had to make up for the Civil Rights Act being passed somehow.

    Good ole Al.

    Obama’s laziness and lack of preparation were his downfall. For the first time ever, he was without his teleprompter and his regime-owned leftist media enablers, and it showed. Gore should keep his mouth shut. Every time he opens it, something even more stupid than the last comment come out. I thought he topped himself with the “middle class buried for the past four years” gem where he inadvertently told the truth, but this one was even better. He needs to be put away where he can’t hurt himself or others.

    Leave it to Al to come up with something like that.

    Thank God Gore never made it to the White House as President. What a dope. The altitude made part-time Pres. lame. The dog ate my homework, too. Biden’s right, the middle class has been buried the :”last four years” under Obama. We can no longer call the liberal media trustworthy, not when they’re part of Obama’s Pravda media.

  • Sandie

    What a bag of baloney. Obama gave a 40 minute speech in Denver at the 2008 DNC and didn’t have any altitude problem. Al Gore will grasp at any excuse, no matter how stupid and ill thought out it is. . . . LMAO!

    Obama hasn’t had any “real questions” from the liberal Pravda media in four years, except what his favorite color is and what sauce he likes on his food.

    Uh huh. One question: was this the president’s first trip to Denver? He has certainly campaigned a lot in CO. Was he unaware of any mountains around and the geography of Denver? (OK, that’s two questions.) But his team should have been well aware of the altitude. Bum excuse or very poor planning.

    Say, whats with “Mars Bars?”

    He is certainly intelligent, but he is so contrarian.

  • MarsBarsTru7

    I’m sorry, but I am compelled to correct you. Obama did have some trouble during his speech in Denver in ’08. He said some really crazy crap like how he was going to solve the deficit, how he was going to reduce taxes for the middle class, how he was going to give everyone free healthcare, how he was going to improve the education system in America, how he was going to be transparent… shovel ready jobs… hope… change … You get the drift. ;-)

  • Jake

    Al Gore Altitude Problem

    Let’s take Al Gore’s comment to be true for a minute. If an increase of altitude cause Obama to be
    a little fussy in being able to make decisions and communicating, then were in
    big trouble. When Air Force One goes up
    to fly the cabin pressure is reduce to around 6000 feet. It helps the airplane have more cycle between
    what is called “C Checks”. C-checks is a
    big maintenance procedure. Doesn’t he have
    his finger on the button? He is in
    charge of all our defenses. He makes all kind of decisions in that plane.

  • Sandie

    Right, he was so High he promised all sorts of things – but it was all just to get elected so that, once in power, he knew there were loopholes he could use to advance his Socialist/Marxist agenda. That is the only thing he has remained true to, not his promises, but his Socialist/Marxist path for the country! The stupifying thing is, he has shown that is what his intent is, yet there are still a majority of his wide eyed followers who can’t, or refuse, to see it. They will promote him and their own destruction to the end, hypnotized by his “pied pipe”.

  • Sandie

    If BO was suffering from altitude sickness, his medical people who travel with him would not allow him to partake in the debate. The altitude just makes one
    breath a little more rapidly to keep the O2 concentration up in their blood. They were not doing anything physically demanding,. so you wouldn’t even notice an increase in respiratory and heart rate. It takes 1-2 weeks for the body to totally
    acclimate to higher altitudes, so the fact that Romney was there a couple hours earlier than BO means nothing. His heart rate would still have to have increased to adjust so there would be absolutely no difference in the effects of O2 level in either, Romney’s or Obama’s blood. There is no medical excuse for Obama to have done so poorly – unless he was on some sort of medication or experiencing the after effect of drugs that they don’t want the public aware of. From working with some people, I can tell you that ‘day after’ cocaine use in a non addict will have the same effects as what we you saw in Obama. Remember, he was a cocaine user.

  • SoThere

    According to strtlk, Obama was on drugs. One “J” too many or some wicked good Ganja!

    Not to mention his airplane ride would have been pressurized to an altitude of 8,500 feet for rider comfort while in the air as an aircraft the size of a 747 cruises around 29,000 to 55,000 feet. Passengers would not be conscious of the cabin were not pressurized, or they would have to have O2 masks. So, rather than pressurize to the same as ground level at zero feet above sea level, aircraft are pressurized around to an equal level of approximately 8,500 above sea level. This altitude argument fails on so many levels that when presented with it you just have to look at the opposition and wonder how stupid they are. Let alone wonder how stupid they must be for thinking they can fool us…

  • Sandie

    thank you for adding that, rudapi, it further argues with proof that this nonsense the left, with Al Gore, is throwing out desperate excuses that are lies in a pathetic attempt to shut down negative ideas about their Dictator.

  • VindicatorX

    Does this mean AlBore and the Prez are air-heads?
    I’ve been noticing for the past couple of years Obama rambles a lot when not on prompter. It’s like he has an attention span problem, so he tosses his head back and puts on that minister affect and just keeps on talking without saying anything.

    Sometimes I feel like he’s the teacher character in those Charlie Brown TV specials. “Bwa-bwa bwa bwabwa bwa George Bush bwa bwa bwaaah” is all he seems to say.

  • Anonymous

    OK, but on the plus side I tend to stand by my principles and my compatriots, (you) so I was surprised by his reaction. Conversely, “MARS” seems to have supporters who feel the same way… ‘Quid pro quo?’

    Anyway, I LOST a friend and compatriot, (or two) over the “Romney issue” and I was never quite sure what that was?

    Romney is certainly a competent businessman and the National balance sheet is at the root of ALL of our problems at this time? I admit to being concerned about the influence of the Church of Latter Day Saints on the man. However, that is NOT religious bigotry on my part, rather as with the Founders, overt religiosity improperly influencing Governance was a major concern on the formation of our Nation?

    Islam and international issues: I hope Romney will NOT exhibit the passivity of his forebears, including Obama, Bush, Clinton, etc. Islam MUST be recognized for what it is–a shroud of darkness attempting to descend over the earth. (similar to early Christendom–”those who neglect the past are condemned to repeat it” [Santayana])

    Another germane quote: “Is it better for a Prince [Nation} to be loved or feared?” (Niccolo Machiavelli.)

    Anyway, respectfully, what concerns you about Romney? What was/is the conflict? I know it is academic at this point, but as I outlined above, I believe our next President MUST exhibit strength and resolve and Obama is not that man!

    I think people draw a line in the sand without looking at all possibilities and even demonize people who were once friends. I been having the same trouble you been having I that regard but it should not chase people from the truth it one or the other and the other is a lot worse.
    As for what influence Mitt’s Church will play on his presidency is an unknown for me. I have been studying somewhat about Mormonism trying to get both sides of the argument pro and anti-Mormonism. I found out that if the Church will push for something they might get elders involve but as for Mitt actually going along with that might be slim just by going with his voting record.
    His voting record does scare me a little Romneycare for one thing or he stance gun control in the past. Granted you don’t need a 50 Cal sniper rifle but their cool and will be nice to have if we ever got invaded or sold if Obama gets back in by the Chinese. Also with all my studying of Mormonism there is still so much stuff I do not know about and that makes me nervous. But what other choice is their vote for the guy or let this country fall and pick the pieces up later.

  • Lioness

    I always felt that looking at an individuals character, their past actions not so much their religion is the best way to rate how a person will be. I wouldn’t worry so much about the whole Mormon thing. I think Romney is actually going to be a little more conservative now than he was before, he seems to learn well from past mistakes. He will have to work with dems no matter what, so he will have to pull the strings and bend a little, it’s the only way to get results. Newt was really proficient at this, but as you can see those such as Ron Paul, not so much. I feel Romney has learned a lot about the fallacies of big government at this point, I like that he has successfully worked with dems and believes in states rights. It’s a good start. And for what it’s worth, I haven’t once met a mean spirited Mormon:)

  • Lioness

    The main influence his religion would have is mostly social, so I’m not too worried. It would seem he is for states rights as a whole, so if he focuses on what’s really important, he’ll be fine. I’m really looking forward to what he has to say about foreign policy in the debates. This current administrations PC approach to Islam is frightening for sure. Wasting money and worse sacrificing the lives of our soldiers to set up democracies in areas that have no concept of how to separate religion from government? Where’s the logic in that?

    Well from what I seen you may be right surly the guy cares for this country.

  • Lioness

    That I definitely believe, I was skeptical at first but watching him speak in the debate. It was darn sincere. Just from personal experience, the way he was talking and expressing, it’s like when I go off on a rant about something I’m very fond of. Whether he is capable of truly helping this economy or not. I feel he will give it an honest attempt, we just have to have faith that he has the knowledge.

    Oh I sure he knows what he is doing after all Bain Capital bought failing companies and turned them around what is more a failure now than our government.

Oh that is going to be fun.

  • MarsBarsTru7

    You know, in all seriousness, the thing that conservatives quite often completely miss is that the worst thing about the Obama Presidency isn’t anything insidious about Obama himself. As an individual, he’s a bit of a jerk and a definite leftist, but he’s not some genius James Bond villain. It has been his appointments and the effect that his radical socialist, communist, eugenicist bureaucratic appointments have had that is really killing and endangering our country. They’ve worked to make this machine of government a self-perpetuating monster. It’s the bureaucracy – the people we don’t get to vote on – the people that respond directly to the puppet masters – that is the real evil, the real poison that has crippled the ability of our side (the side of liberty) to influence this country to move back in our direction.
