If honesty was the main thing with politicians we wouldn't have a government. All your stuff about how you don't trust Obama stems back to the notion that Bush was elected because people felt like they could sit down and have a drink with him - which is retarded. Now I'm not saying you don't have legit reasons not to trust Obama, I just think using your distrust of him to oppose what he does is a fallacy.
I can't speak about why Bush got elected because honestly, I would have voted for Gore in 2000. I thought Bush was a boob and wasn't on his side until 9/11. Then Michael Moore and Natalie Maines or whatever her name is made me feel like I needed to stand with Bush more than ever. But there towards the end it pained me to see people compare him to McCain. McCain is about as honest a politician as you're gonna find.
