Can't Make a Choice Based on Lies

blah blah blah. You know what really causes partisanship? The government being too involved in EVERYTHING. The weak approach Mr. Medved suggests will accomplish nothing, other than to secure our doom.

Wholeheartedly agree. I have respect for Mr. Medved, but in terms of American citizenship he's pretty much akin to the Jewish inmates in the Nazi camps who helped the guards keep the prisoners in line, in hopes they'd somehow be personally spared the final solution.

The Republican Kapos.

Do you understand incrementalism? Every time we move the ball forward, we are winning. We can't expect a touchdown every time.

But Medved has already conceded the middle of the field. Why is the Federal government responsible for Alzheimer's patients, for example? And why are WE apologizing for those who insist they have no role in such things?

The ball is already on OUR 18 yard-line, and moving backward a few inches at a time.

A version of this column appeared originally in THE DAILY BEAST.

Both presidential candidates describe this election as the most important choice in a generation and insist that the outcome will fatefully shape the direction of government and society.

But voters can’t make a meaningful decision when the discussion during the last month of the campaign (and, undoubtedly, much of the televised debate on Wednesday night) will be based on shameless, embarrassing lies.

Those lies flow most egregiously (but not exclusively) from the President of the United States.

Every day Barack Obama frames the electoral decision as a stark choice...
