Gore: Obama’s poor debate performance may’ve been because of… altitude sickness

If this isn’t a Democratic-excuse-making shark-jumper, I don’t know what is.

AL GORE: I’m going to say something controversial here. Uh, 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, uh — I don’t know, maybe…

Yes, I’m sure that the tiring effects of a freshly heightened altitude made all the difference in the world, and that Obama’s terrible showing couldn’t have had anything to do with his abysmal record of failure or his deep-seated antipathy to being challenged by non-friendly fire, and that Romney’s vim and verve was fueled along by all of that high-altitude debate training he’s done. Or something.

So are you Al the hor Gore saying that Romney was also much smarter than OBozo for realizing that and getting there early. I suppose O Bam could have went whereever he chose to go. He chose to blow a bunch on Las Vegas instead of doing his homework. Who’s fault is it regarding the time he arrived in Denver, Romney team or Obama team?

So in other words, “Obama lost because he was high.” Thanks Algore

Really – they are going to try to push altitude sickness? What about the hundreds of flights he’s done on Air Force One? The modern day jets pressurize the airframe to altitudes higher than those found at Denver.

If it really was a problem, don’t you think he would have found another way to golf?
