Two stories are getting lots of play today, both of which suggest strongly that truth-telling is seen by Obama and his psychophants in the media as a negative.
First up, the horrific suggestion/claim made by Romney that those dependent on government are unlikely to vote for anyone but Obama:
During a private reception with wealthy donors this year,Mitt Romney described almost half of Americans as “people who pay no income tax” and are “dependent upon government.” Those voters, he said, would probably support President Obama because they believe they are “victims” who are “entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it.”
In a brief and hastily called news conference Monday just after 10 p.m., Mr. Romney acknowledged having made the blunt political and cultural assessment, saying it was “not elegantly stated,” but he stood by the substance of the remarks, insisting that he had made similar observations in public without generating controversy.
The video of Mr. Romney, the Republican presidential candidate, was made in May, offering a rare glimpse of his personal views. Mr. Romney told reporters that he had been “speaking off the cuff in response to a question” at the fund-raiser, and said he wanted “to help all Americans — all Americans — have a bright, prosperous future.”
Democrats quickly condemned the remarks as insensitive, and Mr. Obama’s campaign accused Mr. Romney of having “disdainfully written off half the nation.”
Let's help the New York Times re-write that last paragraph.
Democrats quickly condemned the truthful and accurate remarks as insensitive, and Mr. Obama’s campaign accused Mr. Romney of having “disdainfully written off half the nation with his penchant for telling the truth.”
US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney questioned the feasibility of the establishment of a Palestinian state in the West Bank, according to video footage published Tuesday by US magazine Mother Jones.
"I'm torn by two perspectives in this regard," Romney said at a $50,000-per-plate fundraising dinner on May 17. "One is the one which I've had for some time, which is that the Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace, and that the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish."

Think for a minute where we are now in this country.
Truth-telling is seen by this administration to be anathema.
And the media will be going ape fecal matter ensuring that much mileage is made about how telling the damned truth is detrimental.
Welcome to America.
It's not your father's country.
