    They just keep letting him get away with it.

      party considers it completely legitimate to lie and cheat if they can get away with it. They are either so completely convinced their world view is the correct world view and/or are so completely selfish that they think government is nothing but a means to their ends that they will do anything to seize the reigns of power.

      The GOP is a collection of people that represent the scum rising to the top of the morally and ethically bankrupt political pool. A pool filled by corruption as thick as a crude oil spill.

      And the GOP itself represents the most self-centered of Americans who are likewise either so completely convinced their world view is the correct world view and who think government is either the cause of their ills, or is stealing money from their greedy little hands.

      Honestly, I've never met a republican I didn't think egotistical to the point of being cocky though they never seem to get how charmed their lives are and how much help they've had through the years, and greedy to the point of not caring if poor people die though they never admit their voting choices will result in that.

      Greed and selfishness exemplify what it is to be republican. And as far as what they think 'government' is, are clueless to the point of needing a good slap-around by the spirits of the Founding Fathers.

      Romney - his fingernails have never been anything but manicured.

        even if lying, prevaricating, distorting, being untruthful, and whatever else you want to call it, are the means.

        Wasn't that one of the ten Republican commandments?
