    Oh, that’s Easy! It was 1864, when we re-elected Honest Abe!

    And then they killed him and there hasn’t been an honest politician since.

    Most politicians are telling the truth, so far as what they would LIKE to do. Just as I would be telling the truth if I said I would like to invent a wind powered car and make a bazillion dollars. Once in office, however, they have to deal with the other party, and reality sets in. That’s how the two party system works. If you actually what your candidate to deliver everything s/he promised, also elect members of the same party to down ticket seats. That’s when things actually happen.

    Politics can be a lucrative career.

    How about Harry S. Truman? He was elected after finishing FDR’s term in 1948. A sign he put on the desk of the oval office read “The buck stops here.”

    “(…) Honest Abe!”

    Well, maybe. But he was canonized after his death, despite that fact that he was commonly disliked during his term, only freed the slaves in the Union states, and illegally invaded the southern states despite the US Constitution saying that he needed a state governor’s permission to enter it with Federal troops to put down a rebellion. Of course, there was precedence: President George Washington (2nd term, Whiskey Rebellion) was convinced by Hamilton to invade Pennsylvania to put down the already ended Whiskey Rebellion and President Andrew Jackson planned to invade So. Carolina to solve the so-called “Nullification Crisis.” (The idea of the “Union” preceding the Constitution appears to have been created out of whole cloth.) Historians generally believe Jackson’s presidency marked the beginning the of decline in public ethics.
