There are a lot of scary characters hoping to run against President Obama. Scary characters without character. They say one thing, but their lives and records show something entirely different. These characters are lacking in integrity.
What scares me most is that we don't have enough intelligent people to sort out the emptiness of the half-truths.
For instance, this morning I heard Newt saying that this President has a record number of people on food stamps. Like he's going out on the street corners, handing out vouchers!! That's the implication.
Of course, we have a record number of people on food stamps. Why? Because the powers that be fail to see how much an economy that worships consumer capitalism creates the problems that contribute to people needing to apply.
Cicero said: "So near is falsehood to truth that a wise man would do well not to trust himself on the narrow edge."
I don't think Newt ever studied Cicero.
