June 26, 2011 SouthAmerica: Al Gore and job creation for the US economy in the 21st century. In my opinion, Barack Obama has been a great disappointment in many ways, and I wish Al Gore would challenge him for the nomination to represent the Democratic Party in the 2012 presidential race in the USA. At this turning point in US history, Al Gore is better qualified to try to turn the US economy around than any of the other candidates from both parties. As the US economy continues to descend into a new Great Depression, Al Gore with the assistance of people such as Jeremy Rifkin, both of these men understand high-tech, global warming, and the job market, and together they can put a policy in place for job creation for the US economy â regarding the new jobs and the new economy of the 21st century. Here is what I wrote about Al Gore on the ET forum during the 2008 presidential election: Al Gore - Democratic Party candidate in 2008 http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=74835&perpage=6&pagenumber=110 May 6, 2008 SouthAmerica: Reply to Jayford ...Al Gore is involved with some of the leading edge technology companies of today â Google, Apple, Current TV and others â and he understand better than any other politician the role that technology and the internet is going to play in the job creation process of the jobs of tomorrow. I guess you guys require further explanation until the point sinks in. Al Gore has been involved for many years in one way or another with the smartest people in the technology field â these guys from Google, Apple, and many other Silicon Valley tech guys â all these very smart people have been helping to shape Al Goreâs knowledge regarding leading edge technologies that it is changing the world on a daily basis. Al Gore has the mindset similar to these guys and he would be more responsive to their suggestions regarding innovation and he would give more support to the development of the technologies of the future. ***** Al Gore - Democratic Party candidate in 2008 http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=74835&perpage=6&pagenumber=122 July 2, 2008 SouthAmerica: I have been documenting for the last 2 years on this thread why Al Gore is the best candidate from both parties. The United States is at the edge of the abyss, and the free fall has already started and it is time to get the best candidate available to guide the United States through the Perfect Storm. 1) Al Gore is considered a Statesman and he is respected around the world. 2) He was against the Iraq War before the Bush administration started that costly war. 3) Al Gore is a heavy-duty politician, but he also has proved in the last 7 years that he is a very good businessman, and he understands how the todayâs world works and he is involved on a regular basis with the companies that are creating the leading edge technologies of tomorrow. 4) Al Gore is very smart and he is competent and I am sure that he would surround himself with smart people to help him implement new policies and create a revolution in the American economy and help create the new products and economy of the future. Instead of Al Gore what we have available for November 2008? 1) John McCain â a guy completely out of touch with the world of the 21st century - and a real Dinosaur in every sense. 2) Barack Obama â an experiment in American politics, a curiosity of the moment lacking real substance - and nothing else. ***** SouthAmerica: If Al Gore is really serious about "Climate Change" then he should prove it to the world: by challenging Barack Obama for the Democratic Party nomination in 2012.
