Who can explain why the Republicans leave everything to the last minute, panic, and then accept the best of the worse?

Even worse, why do Republicans refuse to vet their candidates in advance and continue to allow deeply flawed candidates to run for expediency?

Washington-times-logo-2101475090Embattled Rep.-elect George Santos admits he lied about his life story

Rep.-elect George Santos has come clean about not being truthful with voters about his job background and college education, but he said that won’t stop him from taking his seat in the House next week.

Mr. Santos, 34, admitted to inflating his finance career credentials on his resume and lying about attending Baruch College and later New York University when he ran for the state’s 3rd Congressional District on New York’s Long Island.

After the election, questions arose about these key aspects of his life story that Mr. Santos presented while on the campaign trail.

“My sins here are embellishing my resume. I’m sorry,” he told The New York Post. “I campaigned talking about the people’s concerns, not my resume. … I intend to deliver on the promises I made during the campaign.”

He admitted to lying about graduating from college. Mr. Santos, who is Catholic, claimed he said he was “Jew-ish” not Jewish. And he said his claim that he worked for Citigroup and Goldman Sachs was a “poor choice of words.”

Mr. Santos, a Republican from Queens, said that the issues about his background would not prevent him from taking the oath of office next week when he becomes part of the 118th Congress. <Source>

We have become accustomed to politicians lying… just not as blatantly as President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senator Joe Manchin, and former President Donald Trump. And unfortunately, we have come to accept the lousy performance of the political parties in pre-selecting candidates and giving us a choice between evil and more evil.

Even our judiciary is filled with appointees who act like demigods, thwarting the intent and will of the people as they substitute their own partisan viewpoint for constitutional law.

Bottom line…

When will the American people rise up in protest? When is enough enough? Something to think about as we watch America be destroyed from within – while hordes of illegal aliens arrive to complete the task of turning America into a third-world sanctuary where Americans slave (and yes, that’s the right word) to support the illiterate, impoverished, unproductive, illegal aliens at the expense of our health and welfare.

As we approach the New Year, I find that we are screwed, and I am getting no message from the GOP to convince me I am mistaken and that 2023 will bring us a better future.
