Doesn’t anyone in government have the constitutional fortitude to tell the fucking truth most of the time??? Guess not. 🙂 You need to change the way you vote.

And an important thing to recognize is that it wouldn’t really have mattered who was president at that time; the same thing would have happened.

For a change, try electing people based on their bold ideas and principles rather than name recognition and folksiness.
