On a whim, I went to factcheck.org to see if one of the candidates is offering misleading or blatently wrong information more then the other is.

You have more gumption than me, I started to do that the other day and was like "eh eh" ... LOL.


I DO think however, that even though a lie is a lie is a lie ..... the degree of lying is a little different in politics.


Meaning I don't think if A says something is off a little (say he says 20 million and the correct answer is 22 million) is the same lie as if B says (A did this and it's a complete lie).


So even though they may be neck in neck with the number of mistruths I can't help but wonder if one is out and out lying more or what the numbers are in lying lying vs being off a little is.


However I don't wonder enough to sit down and figure it out myself ;-)

You wouldn't be pleasantly suprised by the outcome.

I wonder though sometimes if we see more of something we are personally looking for ... cuz when I looked the Kerry stuff stood out to me more ... BUT b/c that is in all honesty more of what I was looking for.


I said on here the other day I personally am more forgiving of *oopsies* made during debates or interviews (oopsies I stree NOT out and out lies) than I am of those in ads.

I honestly was looking for both, not one or the other.

am really tired of all of them doing this whole spiel about what the other one is doing or isn't doing or against or not against when all I want to do know is what THEY are for and against.


Amen - and I'd also like to know how they plan to acheive their goals.
