    'If you like your health care plan, you can keep it'

    How about lies from the past?

    And that's just the past two Presidents.
    Those two are saints compared to LBJ and Nixon.

    Well at least we can agree that politicians are not know for the verisimilitude.

    Actually they are usually known for their verisimilitude but cursory examinations reveal they are liars.

    I guess we can't even agree on that. I never expect a politician to tell the truth, especially when trying to get elected.

    I suppose you could say Romney did in his infamous 47% fund raiser, but that truth spoken was nothing to admire him for.

    While the words he spoke were indeed less than admirable, you have to admit that his blunt honesty was refreshing, especially for a politician.

    But it proves (like politicians do) that they say one thing in public and another in private. Might be refreshing on one level but it can also be disgusting on another. Especially when on election day we can see lines of idiots rushing out to vote for them. And that observation applies to either line.

    Do you really think that the vast majority of Americans would vote for a politician who actually said it like it is?

    Actually, I saw Romney vote, and there was no line whatsoever, in fact a lot of unused machines. However, if you were to look in the 47%'s neighborhoods, you would see extremely long lines.

    Speaks volumes, doesn't it?

    Politicians often vote first thing in the morning which allows them to spend the rest of the day campaigning.

    As for the lines at the polls, could it be that the 53% prefer to vote when they get off work while the 47% don't have to worry about that?
