Hyperbole and hypocrisy

New synonym for lies from the fact checkers, hyperbole. The GOP are using a bit more than hyperbole, and when you combine it with all the hypocrisy, they become the party of H & H, hyperbole and hypocrisy. All that from the Tampa, the temporary home of the POO Party, Party Of Obstruction.

Tonight’s RNC theme is We believe in America. Mitt just sent me an email containing that phrase 5 times. He also asked me to donate $20.12 to the campaign. I will not donate $20.12 nor $20.00 nor $0.12. NOTHING, NADA, RIEN.

Mike Huckabee is addressing the RNC now and he is telling fibs to beat the band. That is the GOP strategy this year, lie until the cows come home or until the fact checkers give up in disgust. In my opinion, the GOP with this campaign has lost any moral authority to ever nominate and elect a president ever again.

Actions speak louder

After all the speeches at the GOP Convention last night, I’ll bet that most of the delegates wished that Chris Christie or even Ann Romney was the nominee instead of Mitt. Alas, it was too late. Although both Chris Christie and Ann Romney and several others spoke well, most of the content was either false or misleading. It is not what you say or how you say it, it is what you have done that offers the best clue to what you will do in the future. Actions do speak louder than words.

One of the stars of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida, (I kid you knot) is the dais constructed mostly of wood. Supposedly it will give viewers a warm feeling about Mitt. As a long-time hobbyist who built my own furniture, I am willing to bet that all the wood used in the construction of the dais is veneer. Veneer is used today to give strength to wooden construction and because solid woods are quite expensive. Thus the woods used to give voters a warm feeling about Mitt are cheap plywood with a hair thickness of real wood facing to deceive the viewers into thinking that they are looking at the real thing. Reminds you of the candidate, doesn’t it?
