Is the GOP fundamentally dishonest?

I'm not sure if I would say that they are fundamentally dishonest. I'd say that their ideology is flawed and that they are neglecting to keep their elected leaders in line. If the elected GOP really stuck to what their ideology was, maybe it would work better than it has... but they don't, so we'll never know.

At this point, I think the GOP is much more honest than the Democrats. Republicans don't try to hide their agenda anymore. Republicans run on a platform of slashing social programs to pay for tax cuts to the rich, and I take them at their word.

Now Obama, on the other hand, is a compulsive liar who was swept into office on a faux left-wing populist campaign in 2008 and then governed like a Tea Partier.
