Which means he is a good politician. Sincerity in a politician is fatal, usually to that politician's career, and if not to his career then to his electorate.

(I've never paid for sex in my life. And that's really pissed off a lot of prostitutes.)
Reagan was a trained actor, do not forget it. And what I mean is this: since any action [or inaction] of politician is [if implemented] going to hurt somebody, or at least somebody would imagine that he's hurt, telling the "I am going to hurt you" truth in advance is a wonderful way of advancing the politician's career. Was it Mondale who told that he considered the higher taxes necessary?
