    Re: Which one is the most dishonest active Politician?

    I was hard-pressed to choose between Pelosi, Reid and Obama...but I went with Obama for two reasons:

    1. Pelosi and Reid are Legislators. They are not leaders. Most people expect legislators to lie...Pelosi and Reid just give them what they want.

    2. Obama is the President. He is "supposed" to be a leader...even if he is not very good at it. Most people expect their leader to tell the truth...Obama only gives them lies.

    Obama is most dishonest.

    All politicians are dishonest. You knew that, right? Rand Paul and Cruz are too stupid to be as dishonest as Pelosi.

    Definitely Boehner. If he's not dishonest then he's gutless. He knows policies and priorities trumpeted by his caucus are dumb or wrong, but he goes out into those press conferences putting a spin on them anyway. You might say it's an old school methodology of doing one thing and saying another, but it's kind of outdated at this point in time.

    Most on the right pick the left. Most on the left pick the right. Most in the center pick both.

    Didn't see that one coming.

    Re: Which one is the most dishonest active Politician?

    All of them. Every single politician out there is a lying slug because our political system requires it of them. Our system inherently corrupts everyone it touches if they want to remain in office. It won't be changed until there is a fundamental correction made in our political machine.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I voted for harry reid, instead of president Obama, because I can see / hear Obama's "ticks" when he lies on TV. Harry reid lies without even the slightest twitch, He may be pathological.

    You'll know where the partisan ideologues are when they say "well why did you say ____", but the other choice is fine.
    What did Cruz say that was a lie?

    The statement "dishonest politician" is an example of a redundancy.
