That's how how I hear politicians today, in 2008, with one exception: Mike Huckabee.

Originally said by Gustave Flaubert but often attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson and to Abe Lincoln. All three were contemporaries.

This is what's behind the forces calling for 'exiting' the political boundaries of deception and lies.  Establishment politicians' rhetoric and their actions have rarely matched.  Thus Trump, Brexit, and other nation-centric political movements.  The lies of the Clinton's, Obama's and Bush's just cannot stand the test.  Actions speak louder than words.

Said well, although Lincoln was far from my favorite president.
