    Both sides have major flaws in their math as far as the Budget is concerned. I wonder who would get a mandate if only they fessed-up and actually speak common-sense?

    Lets take a poll to see which set of promises would sway more voters.

    None. I don't trust either one of them to do as they say.

    None of the above.

    If either of those asswipes told me that water ran downhill, I'd get second and third assessments.
