Why won't politicians just tell the truth up front. It seems that it would be a lot easier to get past a lot of the scandals, if they would just say,"I did it, I don't care what you think, next question?" The part that seems to get them all in trouble is the lying about what they did, rather that the fact of what they did.
Anthony Weiner is just one of a long list of politicians that have thought they were above telling what really what really happened. They start off with excuses, then flat out lies and finally when the heat gets really hot they tell the truth. Now there are calls for his resignation, I can't say that I blame the people doing it. If he would just have told the truth there would be no need to resign, after all he is a grown man and the woman invovled was a grown woman, not some teenage bimbo.
The reason now for resignation is the fact that he lied, if he would lie about something this simple and stupid, how can you trust him with other thing that really matter? This is the crux of the problem, not what he did, but what he hid?
This is just another example of elected officials thinking that they are better than the rest of us and shouldn't be held to the same standards that they set for the rest of us. I don't see things changing anytime soon!
They lie to us about taxes, ablity to do anything about oil prices, or just about anything else. Social Security and Medicare will be bankrupt soon and they will lie about how to fix and just who messed it up to begin with. The Sexting scandal just takes away from the serious issues at hand, it almost like that they would rather us talk about Weiner than any of the real issues at hand.
If the economy doesn't turn around pretty soon, consumer confidence in what the administration is doing will slip so deep that nothing will save Obama.
We are grown ups here, just tell us the truth.
