What are the chances we’ll survive the idiots? The ones who continuously misrepresent facts and history and in fact mock knowledge at every turn. No wonder we’re in such a mess. I have a sense we could take a major portion of what goes on in Washington every day, totally uneditied, and pop it right into the latest edition of SNL and you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. Honestly. I bet you could.
From the House Speaker on down there isn’t a day goes by but what credulity isn’t challenged on a grand scale. Right now all you hear from would be republican nominees is how the policies of the Obama administration have failed. What you don’t hear is a single comment reflecting on the constant obstruction of republicans ever since the very first day Obama took office. There has not been even the slightest cooperative effort to find effective solutions to the problems we face. Virtually everything has been predicated upon a mountain of false information being put out there by republicans. You can’t begin to find solutions unless you are willing to accurately assess the problem. That hasn’t happened and still isn’t happening. Frankly I happen to think this handily exceeds an ethical collapse. I think it is well into an illegal enterprise. It’s just too easy to demonstrate how facts and the truth have been constantly misstated. The intent to deceive is unmistakable. This varies little from what GWB did with the facts leading up to the IRAQ war. That was a deception, with an extreme consequence, the same as we have right now.
