Steve Eschenbacher, Idiot for H.D. 96, has rather unfairly insulted my reading comprehension. He wrote, rather plainly, that politicians will lie to you. He is a politician. He's running for office, and he will lie to you. That's what he wrote. I don't think I failed to comprehend anything ... unless, Steve thinks he's not a politician because he hasn't been elected yet (with no dismal chance of ever being). Of course, reading as thoroughly as possible, one could take his meaning to be that politicians only lie in the promises they make after getting elected. So, no promise they make while running could be a lie. After all, they haven't been elected yet; they are not politicians.
So one really has to wonder on what grounds he takes Hillary Clinton to task for lying while running for office? Is he then admitting that politicians lie while running as well as after being elected? Why yes! Yes he is. And so, he stands corrected. Politicians, running or sitting, will lie to you. Steve Eschenbacher is a politician. Therefore, quite plainly by his own admission, Steve Eschenbacher will and is lying to you.
Perhaps it isn't my reading comprehension that is open to question, but Steve's poor abilities at reasoning. Hmmm?
And we allow this Idiot to draw a public paycheck ... Why?
