If you are in the USA you have probably heard about Congressman Weiner. The most disturbing thing about this situation for me is the statement “The worst part is he lied to the press!” REALLY?
I look at what this guy did and I have to say I am not thrilled that he lied to anyone. I am also not thrilled that he did what he did. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, Google it.
What I really have an issue with is that he is either really so stupid that he didn’t think anyone would find out or is such a narcissist that he didn’t think it would matter.
If anyone in this world actually thinks that politicians are “honest” maybe you need to wake up. It doesn’t matter what party or country you live in. In my opinion 99.9% of politicians are dishonest. Why the press is surprised that they were lied to mystified me. This man lied to his wife and not to mention fact that if we look at the last six months I am pretty sure I can find at least one article a week in which someone in a position in government lied to the press.
Isn’t time for us to look at the fact that our politicians lie as being an issue and not that they dared to lie to a specific segment of our population? Shouldn’t honesty be a requirement? Maybe integrity could be added to the list? You know, just for a change.
