    People quit defending their favorite politicians!! The American people are in a bad place right now. They have opted for party loyalty over truth. We all are guilty to some degree. I was just reading a thread where people were arguing over who presented the most honest budgets Bush or Obama.

    Well, we all know Bush didn't. I don't know enough about the intricacies of Obama's budgeting to say. I'm sure just like we found out what Bush was doing toward the end of his term we'll also find out about any deceptions on Obama's part near the end of his term (be that one term or two).

    We (the American people) have sacraficed intellectual honesty for partisian rancor. The country can survive a corrupted GOP and/or a corrupted Democratic party. What the country can't survive is a corrupted populace.

    Other than not including the WoT in his budget, how else was it dishonest?

    What a crock of shit. MA voters defended their favorite politician and now Obamacare is doomed. A win for the good guys.
    This administration is the most dishonest in history, and that includes Warren Harding. The country is doomed unless it sees through Obama's symbolic gestures and demands real governing. That includes a return to sound money, sound budgets, and a strong defense policy.

    I agree, but I wanted to know if there were other claims.

    This is what I mean. You want to defend something by saying 'well, he only did one dishonest thing. How many dishonest things do you require before recognizing that it's a dishonest thing?

    Spinning is also a dishonest thing. And I hope we have not become so politically jaded that we have lost our ability to know that.

    Are you so deeply mired in this partisian mess that you can no longer see? You dont' know enough about what is going on in this administration to say whether or not it is or is not the most corrupt in history. I may end up that you're right, but it could just as easily end up with your being totally wrong. In my lifetime, we have NEVER known the intricacies of what was happening in an administration until that administration has left power and no longer has control over our access to information about what was going on. Nixon was impeached and resigned and we still learned more about what was going on in his administration after he left than we knew while he was in office.

    Partisan Blind Sheeple Syndrome is rampant in America.
    Mostly generated by political pundits in the media.

    What I find funny is how quickly you jump to the defensive. I asked a pretty straight forward question without defending the previous administration at all, and you accuse me of spin? LOL.
