Want to see a terrified politician? Just catch one being honest.

Ken Buck, candidate for the US Senate from Colorado was captured on tape talking about the Tea Party.

“Will you tell those dumb—– at the tea party to stop asking questions about birth certificates while I’m on the camera?” the Republican said at a campaign event in June. “God, what am I supposed to do?” The exchange was secretly taped, according to the Denver Post and local NBC affiliate 9NEWS.

Buck is already backtracking.

Buck happens to be one of Sen. Jim DeMint’s protégés, one of the people being groomed to join DeMint’s “Just Say No” clique in Washington. It seems that he is also a person who wants to look you in the eye and tell you exactly what you want to hear.

It is a national disgrace that things have gotten to the point that it has. Our politicians can not tell us the truth, partly because WE THE PEOPLE will not let them. “If that politician wants our vote then he better kiss our butts to get it.” Tell us what we want to hear. Make us happy with sweet talk. On the whole election front it is all about lying.

You cannot lead from behind a lie. It makes no difference whether it is by submission or omission it is still a lie. What Buck should have done but would never do is to say straight up,” Hey Birthers, if you have something constructive to add to the conversation then sit down and we will talk. If all you want to do is, scream about birth certificates then go away. You are doing nothing except causing more damage to your country.” I see this as pandering for the wacko vote.

I do not care if you are on the left or the right. If you are guided by or your agenda is composed of a single cause, you are a danger to this country, Abortion, homosexuals, birthers, truthers, the list goes on.

Too many people are running around suffering from the grand illusion that if we can get the liberal democrats out of office, that everything will be fine. Who could have told them that? Could it have been the republicans? Would a republican tell you a lie to be elected?

Let’s look at “a truth” for a minute. Every one of our so-called leaders (Republican – Conservative) was already losers before 2008 and they have not improved. While running against Obama, McCain was a loser from the beginning; at best, he was the lesser of two evils. We have reached the point where we can’t even find any new losers; we have to recycle our old losers to try to field a candidate. Even if our people win, we will end up losing because they are going to screw it up.

I have been told that this is a horrible description of how things look. Horrible or not, I have never been told that this description is wrong. It is the truth as I see it and the truth is all that I have to give.
