“I lied!”

Not an outtake.

“I had no plan.”

Not out of context.


The well-known interviewer asked:

“You lied?”


“Yes… Yes, I lied,”

came the reply from the past governor

who now became our new governor.

“I had no plan,”

he said.

“I had no idea what to do,”

he said.

“Lower taxes?

Improve the school system?

Bring jobs back to California?

I lied!

I had no plan!

I had no idea!”


“You told the people,”

the well-known interviewer stated,

“you told the people

there would be no new taxes!

You told the people

you had a plan to

 improve the school system!

You told the people

you would bring jobs back to California!”


“I lied!”

Came the reply from the past governor

who now became our new governor.

“I lied!

I had no plan,

I had no idea.

The school system became worse.

Taxes went up.

More and more jobs left California.”

Said the past governor that is now our new governor.


And, “how?” I ask.

And, “why?” I ask.

How could this man,

this man that lied,

this man that had no idea,

how could this man be elected once again?

Why would the people trust this man that lied?

Why would the people vote for this man that had no idea?

This man that lied?

What a sad state of affairs our political system is...

Because they all lie and their only plan is to be re-elected. The people? the country? Oh, hmmm, we'll think about it.

A friend of mine says, Politians are like diapers. They need changing often, and for the same reason. What your lines of distress say to me ... well done, Mark.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Good question. I heard the same out-take on the John and Ken Show last week on AM 640 KFI. At least he was truthful..............then.
