Oy. Grow up. That interpretation of political process is popular common sense tripe. But it is tripe.
In your mind it's tripe when it's a democrat and gospel when it's a republican.

The liberal double standard is astounding. Do you really think we have forgotten all of Obama's campaign lies? Democrats' campaign promises follow the same path -- patronize all minority groups, blame the republicans for all of the nation's problems, and pretend that they are for the common man while they live like kings with no regard for those who pay their salaries.

Wake up.

My thinking of it has not a thing to do with democrat or republican so don't tell me what is in my mind.

If you are childish enough to even listen to "campaign promises" and put any stock in them, then that is what is tripe. Once elected people do not become supreme dictators that are then able to do whatever they want to do. As such, what happens after elections isn't a matter of whether or not people "keep promises."

What happens inside of the political machinery is very complicated and messy. If you'd like to clean it up by talking about people "breaking promises" then you may. And you will remain in the masses of the intellectually lazy spouting tripe about politics.

hmmmmm...= Paid PR guy. McAuliffe trying to resurrect the Obama winning coalition for himself. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. This guy will take away your right to defend yourself with a firearm. If you love scandal ridden Chicago style politics in the federal government, you will love this guy in state government.

Harry, you have already shown more than once - actually about every time you touch a keyboard - that what you know about politics and the world could be written on the head of a pin....with room to spare.

And I work for no one in or around politics. Nor am I partisan in this single party / pretend two party system of ours. As I've said before, I'd just like to live among a less idiotic citizenry. So sometimes I comment.

You really don't get it, do you? You just can't accept that people like hmmmmm and I are the moderates that used to be right of center and now are left of center due to the radicalization of the right? You can't wrap your head around rational, and have to fall into conspiracies, right? It's not possible that the republicans are alienating their base. First you and your ilk alienate us by calling us RINOs and then calling us un-American, or commies, or democrats. You and your ilk have worked very hard to exclude the moderates of the Republican Party, and then can't figure out why you lost. So you blame it on conspiracies, like voter fraud, or purchasing votes with welfare. Until the radicals and extremists relinquish hold of the Republican Party, they are going to continue to alienate people like us. So go ahead and continue to alienate us by making up little conspiracies that critical thinkers are propagandists, youíre not doing yourself, or us any good. We donít like government, but we like ineffective government even less. You can stomp your feet, ball your fists, scream OBAMA at the top of your lungs and blame the democrats all you want, but itís been clear for the past 4 Ĺ years that the agenda is no compromise

Fortunately for the left, it's more than just the radicals and extremists who keep shooting their feet.

You're a legend in your own mind, Hmmmmm. But oh so reasonable right?
