No doubt, but it is more than that. The issue is that the current Administration based their entire campaign on stopping this type of thing, that there would be unparalleled transparency. Instead, we have a President that literally does nothing while his minions abuse their power in whatever ways they want for their own personal benefit. And when found out - from Benghazi, IRS, the worsening unemployment numbers, spying on their own citizens, it is everybody else's fault. And rather than fixing it, he stands by and makes it worse. All this after using these same situations for political gain. For example:
In all fairness, and more or less in keeping with the original point made about you just cannot blame one person, it is not like Obama is the first president to make false promises either. He just had a better marketing campaign team than any previous president and a better spiffier graphic design team as well. As a result perhaps he tricked people even more so then usual into believing the false promises being made. No doubt he had a few focus groups telling him these are the things the people want to hear about. And one cannot take away the fact my man has a way with the words. However at the end of the day it is the sick, twisted and sadistic game they ALL play. No matter what side.
I truly believe that the politics within DC are nothing more and nothing less than a very complex and very convoluted game of war for a very privileged and very isolated small select group of people who are granted membership. A membership that almost always includes a deep affiliation to a corporate entity. The government's only purpose is to keep the government going. It exists for itself and nothing else. They have just duped people into believe the game being played is for the benefit of all Americans. When it has no doubt been proven it only benefits itself.
"The greatest trick the devil ever played was convincing the world that he did not exist."
So while yes, my own personal ideals and beliefs usually tend to align more with the Democratic party, that still does not mean I trust or believe a single one of them.
