Yomama accomplished great things.
Just ask any sociopathic, psychotic or any Democrat leader.

No, seriously folks, Yomama has potential to become remembered as a great figure in history and will stand in the ranks of famous people such as Mao, Lenin, Stalin, Chavez, Castro, Pol Pot, etc. All great visionaries who also cared deeply about the welfare of their people. /s

As usual with that lot, they keep promising but never deliver anything but misery. All you hear from them is if only they could have more time, or more money, or more hard work and sacrifice on your part, or whatever.

From the Online Etymological Dictionary:

embellish

mid-14c., "to render beautiful," from O.Fr. embelliss-, stem of embellir "make beautiful, ornament," from em- (see en- (1)) + bel "beautiful," from L. bellus (see bene-). Meaning "dress up (a narration) with fictitious matter" is from mid-15c.

===============
In other words - LIE.
