We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Gateway. Here's the proof. We were right earlier: Axelrod told the truth to cover his own ass and to protect his own credibility. A day later (yesterday), he said he misspoke. Now, it's clear thatáhe was right the first time. What a tangled web we weave... Despite the stammering, you cannot deny that Obama lies with authority. Still, everyone must be wondering what else he lies about: it's only natural to wonder, because pols typically try to sanitize, if not mythologize,átheir pasts - but usually not their pasts of four weeks ago. The internet is aárelentless truth-detector.
Time and reality grind away. Thus does the bloom come off the rose.
"Still, everyone must be wondering what else he lies about: it's only natural to wonder."
I find myself wondering what The ěne has ever said that might remotely resemble truth.
"There is a case for telling the truth; there is a case for avoiding the scandal; but there is no possible defense for the man who tells the scandal, but does not tell the truth." - GK Chesterton, 7/18/1908
I was in a family for more than 26 years who is directly involved in 'The Combine", however better known as "The Political Mafia". Thier job within the cirminal system was to launder criminal money straight into property using big banks to hide ownership using Mrotgage fraud schemes. They also brag about being a CIA Asset from replying to questions about why they aren't concerned about ever being prosecuted.
Sometime around when Obama started working at the law firm which the family uses for criminal activities, Obama's name started surfacing in the family. At first they couldn't beleive someone with his name would be of any value however the people in the Combine felt Obama was a budding star and would go places in Politics and help the criminal system. Obama was made a TEAM MATE and the Rezko Trial shows he was introduced to many wealthy people. Oh by the way, why did Rezko invite Obama to work at a law firm he didn't own three years before Obama joined?
However it's important to accept that the Combine known for pay-to-pay politics has many OTHER criminal facets to their activity list. One is involved with hude amounts of cocaine to the tune of more than $100 million per week. This is where the family was a big help as they were able to give property in exchange for cash to those involved. But in the 90's around the time Obama's name sufaced, my (then) sister-in-law's brother "Clyde O'Connor" was nitorduced to the family during a family gathering at my house! My (the) brother-in-law openly discussed starting a new business involving air distribution with purchasing planes for purpose of shipping in tons of cocaine along with what he called "The Guys".
Meet "Clyde O'Connor" in an International investigative report:

Yes Obama is a TEAM MATE and his quick rise seems to show how well being a teammate helps you progress.
There is a lot more to this but the O'Connor plane was one of a fleet of over 100 planes used for this purpose and let's not forget the CIA connection. Obama is thought to have help setup the family's business papers while working at the law firm.
Not even January 20 yet, and the Obama-Truth-Cloth is visibly unraveling before the hypnotized Obama-bots, who are suddenly awakening from their "Change-Hope" stupor.
Good grief... "Everyone else must be wondering what else he lies about???" You mean, all LIBERALS are wondering, right? Because conservatives have been knowledgeable about his "artful dodger" track record on telling the truth long before Blago. Obama is nothing if he isn't smooth and calm and cool... nothing dependably true is uttered from his mouth (half-truths don't count), but hey, he's cool under pressure, man. And doesn't he look good in a suit?
Only NOW does it occur to liberals to analyze the toads and snakes that falls out of Obama's mouth whenever he's faced with answering to anything remotely challenging or character-based? Only NOW there is shock over his deceptive performances that have been obvious to so many for two-plus years? His socialist agenda that he's denied but supported in many radio interviews, his lies about his associations with William Ayres, Saul Alinksky, and anyone else unsavory, anti-American, or just a general ruthless thug, his plan to bankrupt the coal industry, his desire to have no government military but a total volunteer military (much like Hitler had with Germany's youth), his closet smoking, his concealment of school and birth records and college clubs, his wife's appointment to a lofty 6-figure position when he was Senator, his lavish home sold to him for a song from criminals... it's so comical that the Liberal Drive-By Media is flabbergasted and only now seeing that the emperor has no clothes. Geez, stop smoking the goofball weed and I'll bet more could be reported on by unemployed journalists. There's plenty of work that they could do to further dig up and expose more truths about the ugly, lawless underbelly of Chicago politics, where Obama was weaned and raised. This is more than a mere "distraction," as so many in Obama's camp are trying to portray it.
There will be frantic pillow talk of the highest order this week in the Obama conjugal bed. Michelle is no dummy and knows he needs as much secretive support on how to stop this train wreck as quickly and cleanly as possible. Evil Blago will be thrown under the bus, for sure, but what about Obama himself? As he wrote some years ago in one of his autobiographies, Obama said he learned at a young age what lies white people wanted to hear and he became a master at telling them. Yep, the chickens have come to roost, by golly.
WHY ARE WE SO, SURPRISED, ABOUT A CANDIDATE THAT HAS WON A SEAT TO REPRESENT US AND FIND OUT LATER THAT THEY MAYBE DISHONEST. ISN'T THIS A PART OF BEING AN AMERI-CAN. HE IS NOT THE FIRST TO BE DISHONEST AND HE WON'T BE THE LAST. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE OTHER DISHONEST ADMINISTRATION REPRESENTATIVES THAT WE CHOSE TO HOLD AN OFFICE AND THEN WE HAD TO CHEW AND SWALLOW UP THEIR DISHONESTY. NOW, THINK ABOUT IT, YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO TELL THE TRUTH. DON'T BE QUICK TO JUDGE. REMEMBER, THE WHITE HOUSE MISTRESSES, WATERGATE AND THE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION!!! AND SO ON!!!
I love this stuff. Hope and Change, Change and Hope. Can I get a Yes We Can! from the choir? I have finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up. A snake oil salesman. That, and owing a button factory. My mother would be so proud.
