97. It's not a matter of breaking promises.
Edited on Sat Aug-09-08 12:40 PM by charlyvi
I still think his agenda is best for our country.

But he asked for my support and my money knowing this time bomb was waiting to explode, effectively ending any chance of being elected. I gave him my money and my support, not knowing this same fact.

He campaigned on ending bush policies, knowing his conduct, when exposed, would extend bush policies another four years had he won the nomination. It was breathtakingly reckless for him to run for office, with everything at stake, knowing this would sink his candidacy like a stone. In this day and age, it always comes out. He knew this.

So, yes, I feel like a "sucker", because I was his supporter and acted in good faith to get him nominated. But I didn't know what he knew--that all the good faith and support in the world would be olbliterated by the front page of the National Enquirer should we have succeeded.

You may not agree with this point, but it is a valid one. We have a right to be angry.
