Facts Vs. Spin 

I find this kind of article interesting. It matches the words of a candidate against the facts. Of course, candidates make things look glossier and easier to achieve than they are. But, voters tend to believe them, or rather, they form an impression of the person making the promises and place their trust in that person.

There is no chance given the deficit that either Obama or McCain can accomplish all they are promising to do. We know that, and they know that. However, we the voters choose not to look at the facts too closely. We hope the next president can deliver us from economic maladies. Our hope is bound to be disappointed, but a candidate plays the odds that voters will not lose their trust before recording a ballot.
