Santos and Biden

“Santos and Biden,” Monterey Herald – Jan. 6, 2023

Apparently there are no limits to politicians’ hypocrisy! The socialist Democrats are now demanding the resignation of Rep. Santos for embellishing his ‘credentials’ in his run for the House. Interesting, but hardly breaking news, for the majority of politicians bend the truth in their campaigns to win and retain their political offices.

If those calling for Santos to resign would apply their rationale evenly and fairly, they would also demand the resignation of the number one embellisher in our recent history- Joe Biden, our dysfunctional president, who might any day state he fought at the battle of Gettysburg, then subsequently restate he did not participate in the actual fight but did have the hot dog concession.

Any and all politicians who are prone to mendacious conduct should be removed from office. If they are unable to speak the truth they cannot be trusted to work for our common good.
