The bald-faced lies that come nonstop out of the White House — how does he get away with it? There can only be one answer for how a serial liar gets away with it over and over and over. A majority of the people he’s lying to must prefer his lies to the truth.
Which reminds me of this:
The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of
entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier
to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore
the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate
willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much
deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of
what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind
anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.
The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a
fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those
who made him their president.
Another serial liar has just announced her candidacy. Let’s hope her lies aren’t as alluring to that multitude of fools. Let’s hope H.L. Mencken was wrong when he said Democracy is government run by jackals worshiped by jackasses.
