You know what we need?

A leader who says things like:

Let me say a few words about important values we must demonstrate while all of us serve in government. First, we must always maintain the highest ethical standards. We must always ask ourselves not only what is legal, but what is right. There is no goal of government worth accomplishing if it cannot be accomplished with integrity.

Second, I want us to set an example of humility. As you work for the federal government there is no excuse for arrogance, and there’s never a reason to show disrespect for others. A new tone in Washington must begin with decency and fairness. I want everyone who represents our government to be known for these values.

What's that you say? George W. Bush said that???

Oh.

You know what we need? Someone who actually means those words.

Considering that the average person has the attention span of a tsetse fly, policiticans have learned they can say whatever they want and it will be forgotten.

If its rembered, they deny saying it, even though its on tape. If they are caught in the lie, then they claim you misuderstood.

Ad nauseum.
