The Film Flam Man...

A wonderful movie about two lovable scamps pulling the wool over the eyes of gullible Southerners.

Notice the word Gullible. You see a con can never really work unless the people who are being Flamed buy into the Flim.

The key to the scam is that no matter how much evidence and testament comes to light about the scam, those on the Flam side are caught in a situation that even if they figure it out they, more than likely than not, will suspend belief and hope it all goes away before the sham explodes all over the place.

Now there is always a bit of a con man in every politician just because of the nature of the game which is basically painting a rosier future than the other guy or gal who is out there with their version of how the world will be.

And that is why con men succeed more often than not.

So looking at what the republicans have on their hands right now. They have their very own Mordicia on their hands in guise of Mitt Romney. He wants you to trust him, trust him that he looked over his tax returns and announces that he saw nothing wrong so what's all the Whoo Haa over the tax returns.

Don't think for a moment that the GOP doesn't know this but they sure don't want to look like they have been Flamed again. They are banking their whole campaign on tearing down president Obama because when you really look at it, they have nothing more than more of the same.

Would you, if you where a republican (perish the thought), stand up and say we've been bamboozled once again?

I think not. We just have to make sure we get the people who see through the con to the polls on November 6th...

I live in a very red state.

The people may still vote for him, but I don't think they want anyone to know they are.
