Democrats Lie, Republicans Lie. Which Is It?
Well now that the debates are done, we get down to the serious spin or lies if you will which progresses apace. Both parties claim victory and their sycophants in the media do their best to spin and continue to do the bidding of their favored candidate in hopes of altering what we have witnessed. All in all I find it disgusting. I do not need anyone to tell me what to think vis a vis what I just watched and heard. Condescending and elitist snobs that they are.
What is the average part time observer to make of this hash? I have found most swallow the spin without any hard intellectual thought. Many react emotionally or simply side with the R or D candidate they prefer. I have also found by taking time and reviewing facts, it makes it much easier to know which person is lying. As to the media pundits, they can edit a clip and make you believe anything. Watch for those charlatans. They are devious as their ideology tends to blind them and they also are somewhat delusional.
We all know politicians can bend the truth. In fact many do not know what truth means. They tend to be self serving and likely to speak any words which might enhance their reelection. Whoppers galore as well as the notorious gaffe are ever present. As a matter of fact and not to pick on VP Biden, but just today he claimed candidate Romney is proposing a $500 TRILLION tax cut for 120,000 rich people. Funny guy that Joe.
The point is no one is perfect in spite of what Chris Matthews tries to tell you. And I am proud to say, no politician ever made my thigh tickle. Yet it is still hard for me to believe and witness massive cheering towards a candidate that just spewed some incoherent babble and the crowd shouts as if witnessing the Beatles for the first time. Most puzzling indeed. I have only cheered one politician in my six odd decades. In fact I don't see the appeal personally, but I defer to the sensibility of each. I suppose in my case it is just that I have not seen a true statesman in so long that anything short of that is not recognized in my eye as a leader.Continued on the next page
