It is a shame how common this kind of political lying is.
And the attitude of it all…
Does this story sound familiar?
A. Politician promises the word if elected.
B. Then they get into office and little if anything changes.
I mean, is it worse to make a promise and fail at keeping it while trying, or to make promises you know you can’t keep when you make them?
And yes, shame on us.
Like most of my colleagues, I promise my constituents a lot of stuff I can never deliver. But what the hell? If it makes them happy hearing it, and they’re stupid enough to believe it, shame on them.
