Trump + Cruz Make Outrageous Statements? Oh, Really?

"If you ever injected truth into politics, you have no politics...Will Rogers

There is no doubt that both Trump and Cruz have made some outrageous statements during this campaign and throughout their respective  careers.  But let's be frank. Obama, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders add new meaning to lies, deceit and even their own credibility.

Let's review some conspicuous examples:
  • {The Iran Deal} "will make the world safer."  Obama (Iran is still testing ballistic missiles).
  • "We now have more jobs in solar than we do in oil."   Hillary Clinton (in short, bullshit)
  • "The Benghazi probe is the "longest congressional investigation ever.'"  PolitiFact  reported there have been others that were much longer.
  • "I made America the most respect country on earth." Obama  (Don't laugh out loud).
  • "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor." Obama    (Keep laughing)
  • "When you're white....You don't know what it's like to be poor." Tell that to the over 20M white Americans who are poor.
  • Hedge fund managers "pay less in taxes than nurses and truck drivers."  ---"Even interpreted charitably, her claim is greatly misleading." PolitiFact
  • "This is the most transparent administration in history."  Obama.   I guess he forgot about Benghazi, Fast and Furious, and HRC's email scandal just to name a few.
  • We were "dead broke" when we left the White House. Hillary Clinton.  Even she had to walk back that lie to "not truly well off."  ABC News
When we're talking about politicians and their outrageous statements and lies,  I think we can safely come to one conclusion: It's a PUSH.
