What A Tangled Web We Weave...

....when we first practice to deceive.

We know that almost all politicians are deceitful when they campaign. Call it exaggeration, embellishment, speaking a half-truth, or outright lying, it makes no difference. If there is a willful intention to deceive people in anyway, it's a lie......period.

Take this situation with the Democratic candidate for governor in Florida, for instance. She was caught red-handed getting a text message from someone in her campaign, which was a deliberate and  blatant violation of the debate rules. She was called out on it and now she is lying to cover up the act:

 

Once again, the trained eye can spot a liar a mile away. Watch her body language, listen to her uneasy verbal communication, and realize that she is giving stark clues as to just how utterly untruthful she is being in the midst of this self-made crisis. 

Now by contrast, here is a guy who is telling the truth:



I bet he wishes this tape didn't exist.

I say this because he is once again trying to BS the people of California into electing him governor of that state.

He said it then, I believed him then. But what about now?

Alex Sinks is lying to get elected in Florida and Jerry Brown is lying to get elected in California. Are the people from those states comfortable voting for people who are brazen enough to keep lying despite being caught red-handed?

How about you?

Will you believe a Democrat who says they will not automatically come down on the side of Pelosi and Reid? With examples like them, is it any wonder why we end up with a culture that demonstrates a need for interviews like this?



Any wonder at all?

Let me explain these LA.

The issue with Sink was the fault of a staffer. Democrats never do anything wrong, their staff does. It is an age-old excuse.

I used to be cynical and think they were just making this up, they were simply throwing a staff member under the bus to save themselves.

Then I realized, they are hiring liberals. These people are not a smart bunch overall. Most of the people they hire have never had a job except that community organizer gig. So, maybe it really is the fault of the staff.

So see, it's not her fault. You can feel comfortable voting for her.

Not a resident of Florida? No problem. She's a Democrat, you can vote for them even if you live in another state. Just contact your local ACORN office. Register to vote in Florida several times, their staff members have a quota they need to meet.

With Brown, that was a long time ago. You can't hold that against him now. It was when he was, um, less old.

Besides, Whitman hired a criminal which cannot be confused with Harry Reid hiring a criminal because that is different. There was no way he could know she was going to hearings and speaking with investigators, he thoughts she had to miss work for doctors appointments. Maybe she's sick?

Register as a Nevada voter too while your at the ACORN office.

I’m telling you, Sunset … you’ve taken a nice man, with a pleasant personality, someone who is always the life of the party, and transformed him into an angry, abrasive, contentious, crabby white man. I hope you’re proud of yourself.

Chuck, don’t despair. There is help out there …

Yeah, that's what happened to me, too Mustang. I used to be a good kid. Then I started hanging around with Sunsett and now I'm despised by everyone, including Barack "Dude" Obama. You tried to tell Chuck; you did your job as a friend.

What an amazing statement, I don't care WHEN he said it...
wow

Well Chuck, I guess I stand (or in this case sit) corrected.

//I hope you’re proud of yourself.//

DNC Chairman Tim Kaine said today that Democrats need to be proud of their party and their president. Well, I can't go that far (as a conservative), but I do think he is underscoring the problem you illustrate here: any democrat who attempts to distance him or herself from their Democratic party are opportunists and should be voted out of office. It is this simple: either you love America and vote conservative, or your love European socialist ideology and vote progressive. There is no middle ground.

Do you agree?

LASunsett said...

Gunny is looking for you. He has a taser.

I don't know. I would have thought they would have by now?

Another youth corrupted by the sarcasm of Mustang. She wasn't this way before he got a hold of her.

Sir Walter, you are not supposed to be awake until next week when you vote. Now until then, go back to being dead.
