I know the last thing everybody wants to hear is another political rant, but I’m going to give it to you anyway.
Has anybody noticed the recent slew of “fact-checking” sheets and reports that have come out since Paul Ryan’s VP speech at the GOP convention*?
Does it really come as a shock to people to find out that politicians lie? I can’t wait to see the other side come out with the same kinds of reports after Joe Biden and the current demagogue-in-chief give their speeches.
Politicians lie? Really? Who would’ve thunk…
Here’s my two cents: Democrats lie more often than Republicans. Hands down. There are always exceptions to the rules, and being more honest than the Democratic Party is not exactly a milestone achievement.
Many people said this race might be the most interesting in a while (thanks to the protection of free speech that Citizens United upheld), but this is absurd on its face. The most intense presidential race in the recent past has probably been the one between Bush II and Kerry.
Mitt Romney is going to win this election (as I keep saying), and it’s because the economy still sucks. That’s it! That’s why he’s going to win! All these other distractions will be forgotten by the middle of next year.
* Note to non-American readers: VP stands for “vice-president” and GOP for the Right-leaning Republican Party.
