Gore launched another strong attack on George Bush’s handling of Iraq on the Today Show:
Calling the Iraq war “the worst strategic mistake in the entire history of the United States” and “worse than a civil war,” former Vice President Gore urged President Bush to find a way to get U.S. troops out of Iraq “as quickly as possible without making the situation worse” while appearing this morning on NBC’s “Today.”
“I would urge the President to try to separate out the personal issues of being blamed in history for his mistake and instead recognizing that it is not about him. It’s about our country,” Gore said in an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer.
Political Wire also notes that Gore’s book, The Assault on Reason, will be released in May, and sees this as a sign that Gore is staying in the race.
The book is expected to be a fiery attack on the current political environment using President Bush’s two terms in office as the main examples.
