Desperate Rhetoric

In any campaign a candidate places their views in best light and the opponent’s in less positive ways.   That is expected and normal.   It is not seen as dishonest or out of bounds.  Sophisticated voters are aware of this as they weigh and sift.    Lying is something else.   We had a Democrat President recently for whom lying was the norm.   The media helped him with his dissembling and dishonesty.    It became fodder for SNL:   “I never had sex with that woman.”    The lying was compulsive and became comical.

Sadly, this has entered the GOP race for the U.S. Senate here in CO.   Jane Norton has said Ken Buck is for amnesty for illegal immigrants.   This would be like someone saying in another era, “Dick Nixon is soft on communism.”   Or  “Ronald Reagan is afraid to deal with striking Air Traffic Controllers.”    Each of these including the Buck stance on illegal immigration is known to even the most uninitiated.   In fact, the Far Left has tarred Ken for being so tough on this crime.

Yet, there is no other way to say this–the Norton campaign is lying about Ken Buck at this point.   This is very puzzling and one has to conclude that this comes out of desperation.   C.S. Lewis wrote:  “A little lie is like a little pregnancy–it isn’t long until everyone knows.”  But in this case everyone knows the lie instantly. 

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., wrote in 1858 in The Autocrat of the Breakfast Table:  “Sin has many tools, but a lie is the handle which fits them all.”   Let us leave this to the Democrats for which this has become second nature.   Persons still expect basic moral values of Republicans.   Let us not let them down.

P.S.   I look forward to blogging again beginning August 11.    Hopefully your votes are already in for Ken Buck who did not petition his way on to the ballot.
