I Invented the Internet

Al GoreMarch 9, 1999

United States Vice President Al Gore gives an interview on CNN’s Late Edition in which he states, “During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet. I took the initiative in moving forward a whole range of initiatives that have proven to be important to our country’s economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our educational system.” This is the infamous statement which will be widely misquoted as “I invented the Internet.”

    mike huckabee said it best, “god, guns, grits, and gravy”. simpleton answers for simpleton followers. answers in genesis? it’s not even a christian book much less a true narrative of creation or history.

  • He was clearly talking about legislation that would facilitate it’s creation. In all fairness, that is something the present GOP does not grasp. The possibility that legislation could serve a positive function. This is right in their blindspot.
