How can there be A credibility gap when there is no credibility to begin with?
Well now, THERE'S a New Year surprise.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Oh! No! It’s because Obama is a Marxist! That’s why he came back from his Hawaiian vacation. The big Marxist wanted tax cuts for the middle class. Hahahahahahahahahahahaha! He’s as much of a Marxist as is Bill Gates. Oh, he’s a scary Marxist. Him and Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi all wearing Mao suits and living in tin buildings. He says he wants to tax the rich and everyone starts building bunkers. It’s a distraction. He’s just a Shill.
Thomas Jefferson once offered a wise bit of advice in a letter to young Peter Carr:
"Nothing is so mistaken as the supposition, that a person is to extricate himself from a difficulty, by intrigue, by chicanery, by dissimulation, by trimming, by an untruth, by an injustice. This increases the difficulties ten fold; and those who pursue these methods, get themselves so involved at length, that they can turn no way but their infamy becomes more exposed. It is of great importance to set a resolution, not to be shaken, never to tell an untruth. There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible; and he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the worlds believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all its good dispositions." -- See "Letter to Peter Carr, August 19, 1785," in Thomas Jefferson: Writings (New York: The Library of America, 1984), pp. 814-815.
From "fast and furious" to Benghazi, from Obamacare to the so-called "fiscal cliff," do we not see examples of such "chicanery, by dissimulation, by trimming, by an untruth, by an injustice"?
The guises by which Americans are being deceived into surrendering their liberty grow more numerous every day. Truly, Jefferson summed it up well, "there is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible" as this kind of habitual deceit--especially when it is by an Administration elected to "preserve and protect" "the People's" Constitutional protections for liberty.
