Political Truth Is Oxymoron

 

I read a NRSC’s photo of the vp candidate saying that none of has to settle and was momentarily surprised and bemused. I recall the pictures and the recent comments of the presidential candidate on education saying that we should only get the amount of education we can afford. How is that not settling? It sounds contradictory to me.

That is what frustrates me about elections. Everyone seems to say opposing things at different times. I wish there was some sort of law that said they had to lay out exactly what they stood for and that they had to be truthful through the whole campaign and election process. I think political mudslinging, pandering, and blatant lying is wrong. Present the absolute facts. Don’t confuse people. No, I am not as educated on the national events and policies as I should be or would like to be. I have a job and a life I have to care for. I have to deal with that while trying my best to stay afloat. I would love to focus on politics only for a while and try to figure out who exactly is the best person for the office of President. While I can’t do that, I also don’t believe I am being presented with the truth. And that is what I want: the truth! Romney, if you think you can do a better job, explain to me EXACTLY how. And btw, when you represent us in foreign countries, don’t bungle it. The last time you were out of the country, you screwed it up in my opinion. You have to know the names of people and you have to answer questions or have your people do so in a respectful way. They can’t tell reporters to kiss their ass. That’s the redneck way of doing things. Diplomacy is part of being a President. Got it? President Obama, tell us all you did right and what else you plan to do. Own up to what you did wrong and how you plan to rectify it. We just want the truth please. Thank you.

I realize asking for the truth in politics is pretty much an oxymoron. It shouldn’t be, though. You want to hold the highest seat in the land? Then just give me absolute truth. Pretty simple and pretty basic. And it should be bipartisan.
