To be fair, how many honest politicians are out there! Anyone who is high up the food chain will spend more time covering their ass then actually doing their job.
I don't disagree at all, you could probably count the honest politicians in Washington on one hand. My problem is when it becomes difficult to find ANY true statements from a politician. I don't agree with Obama's politics, but at the beginning of his campaign when he was running for president, I actually liked the guy. I fell for a bit of the hype that was floating around him. I look back now and have a hard time correlating anything he says with the truth of our current situations. Forget whether he has a 'D' or an 'R' after his name, the guy simply cannot be trusted with his own words or promises which is a dismal outcome for one who promised 'Hope and Change' from the normal operations in Washington.
