“It’s discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit.”
~ Noël Coward, Blithe Spirit
Now that the campaign is really heating-up, I was reminded that I just better “put on my seat belt.” We’re in for a really bumpy ride.
I have learned to expect the “mud-slinging.” But it’s the hypocrisy and the media’s double standard that is still hard for me to swallow.
Not making Romney’s tax records public is criticized by the “left, but not making any of Obama’s college, law school or Bar Association records public is ok? Really? And how about the Fast &Furious records?
Progressives condemn Romney’s outsourcing of jobs as a cost cutting plan for companies that he was trying to save, but outsourcing of jobs in Obama’s alternate energy companies are OK? Really?
It was “so bad” when Romney said something somewhat critical of the security surrounding the London Olympics, but it’s perfectly fine for Obama to “disrespect “Israel’s Prime Minister and the Dalai Lama. “Get the picture?”
Perhaps nowhere is hypocrisy more obvious than in the Massachusetts senatorial race, The stakes couldn’t be higher. Control of the Senate may depend on Republican Scott Brown retaining his seat in this Democratic state.
What’s the hypocrisy? Well, his opponent, Liz Warren, the darling of the “left,” wants your votes, even though most of her credentials have proven to be totally fabricated as well as ignored by the media.
She claims to come from “Oklahoma’s dust-bowl.” She said she was poverty-stricken, when, in reality, she drove an MG in high school and only recently traded in her BMW 528i for a Ford hybrid, just before the campaign began.
Imagine, Warren is a 1% er!!!
She claimed to be a foe of foreclosures and “house flipping” yet it came to light that in 1993 she bought a home for $30,000 and then flipped it 5 months later for $145,000!
She bragged that she “crafted the intellectual foundation for Occupied Wall Street” and would protect us from the evils of capitalism, but then we found out that she actually obtained huge donations from numerous liberal Wall Street backers!
And of course, the biggest lie of all. She claimed to be of “native-American heritage” which turned out to be totally unsubstantiated! The fact that she has also used this claim to her advantage at the diversity-conscious Harvard Law School didn’t seem to bother any of her Progressive friends.
Hypocrisy? No way!
Where is the mainstream media? Many of you may be hearing this for the first time.
I have always felt that the Kennedy-Nixon election was the “dirtiest” election in my lifetime.
I suspect I may now have a new “Number 1.”
