    Re: Which one is the most dishonest active Politician?

    It was a hard choice because I had to pick only one. My choice was Obama because the buck stops with him. But I can think of a dozen reasons to vote for Biden, Reid or Pelosi as well. As far as the GOP, I have a burr up my arse when it comes to McConnell. He is such a whining, no backbone, been in Washington way too long, disappointment. And that goes for several GOP Senators that I can no longer tell the difference between them and moderate Democrats that are lock and step with the Republican elites.

    Some of the choices are outrageous and were posted by a very bias OP.

    Re: Which one is the most dishonest active Politician?

    Let us do this as honestly as possible:

    Obama, 46% true or mostly true, 27% half true, 26% false or mostly false and 2% pants on fire (on 495 ruled comments on Politifact)

    Biden, 42% true or mostly true, 26% half true, 27% false or mostly false and 5% pants on fire (on 65 ruled comments on Politifact)

    Boehner, 33% true or mostly true, 15% half true, 50% false or mostly false and 3% pants on fire (on 61 ruled comments on Politifact)

    McConnell, he has made too few comments that were rated on Politifact (only 15 statements) of which about half was honest and half was dishonest but statistically too insignificant to count either way so here it is all down to your personal opinion

    Pelosi, she has made too few comments that were rated on Politifact (only 22 statements) of which about half was honest and half was dishonest but statistically too insignificant to count either way so here it is all down to your personal opinion

    Reid, he has made too few comments that were rated on Politifact (only 17 statements) of which about half was honest and half was dishonest but statistically too insignificant to count either way so here it is all down to your opinion

    The too few rated stipulation (under 25 comments rated, so 24 or under) also goes for:

    Rand Paul, Jeb Bush, Bobby Jindal, Mike Pence, Cory Booker, Brian Schweitzer, Howard Dean, Janet Napolitano, Kathleen Sebelius, Elizabeth Warren, John Huntsman, Martin O'Malley, Deval Patrick, Mark Warner, Steve King and Allen West.

    But there are a few left:

    Hillary Clinton, 46% true or mostly true, 25% half true, 26% false or mostly false and 2% pants on fire (on 87 ruled comments on Politifact)

    Christie, 38% true or mostly true, 27% half true, 27% false or mostly false and 7% pants on fire (on 81 ruled comments on Politifact)

    Ted Cruz, 16% true or mostly true, 16% half true, 52% false or mostly false and 16% pants on fire (on 25 ruled comments on Politifact)

    Wasserman Schultz, 44% true or mostly true, 19% half true, 32% false or mostly false and 6% pants on fire (on 32 ruled comments on Politifact)

    Michele Bachmann, 15% true or mostly true, 10% half true, 48% false or mostly false and 27% pants on fire (on 60 ruled comments on Politifact)

    Scott Walker, 22% true or mostly true, 22% half true, 48% false or mostly false and 8% pants on fire (on 77 ruled comments on Politifact)

    John Kasich, 52% true or mostly true, 18% half true, 26% false or mostly false and 4% pants on fire (on 50 ruled comments on Politifact)

    Rick Perry, 27% true or mostly true, 25% half true, 37% false or mostly false and 10% pants on fire (on 142 ruled comments on Politifact)

    Santorum, 20% true or mostly true, 25% half true, 44% false or mostly false and 10% pants on fire (on 61 ruled comments on Politifact)



    So my vote is going to go to Michele Bachman as the most dishonest politician with 48% of her statements being ruled as mostly false or false and 27% pants on fire false. Ted Cruz not far behind and is second in this race with 52% of his statements being ruled mostly false or false and 16% pants on fire false.

    The most honest was republican John Kasich with 52% of his statements being ruled true or mostly true with Obama and Hillary Clinton coming second there with both 46% of their statements being rules true or mostly true.

    She would be other LOL, but she is not really dishonest so she will never be the top dog in the most dishonest politician race.

    These are always the types of poll that should be titled: "Do you vote for Democrats or Republicans?"
