Propaganda concomitant political ads but more often the candidates themselves out propaganda they make promises they don't -- Say things they don't mean sucked up to a special interest groups.
President Obama does that look at this clip from this debate against John McCain.
Actually I'm cutting more than I'm spending so that there will be -- that spending cut.
I what that spending caught he increase spending to three point eight trillion dollars.
But Newsday columnist Ellis Henican says I'm wrong to be so critical.
Why am -- he's saying that got a -- and -- spent like a drunken sailor well listen we don't want a president who is going to say something way before he becomes elected and then feel like he's completely region lead.
Tied into that -- he can't deal with events as -- have been a lot of stuff happened -- -- -- -- Some of it was pretty bad and you want a president who's in -- being flexible for you.
What he was being really flexible the pending and maybe he -- head when he debated Hillary Clinton he said.
He complained the government spends so much money and programs don't work that don't work and he was gonna eliminate a whole host of -- We need to eliminate a whole host of programs that don't work and I -- -- go through the federal budget line by line.
Page by page programs that don't work we should cut.
It would be great if he did but.
He's -- almost not act.
It's just -- It won't all hold -- I mean there's an awful lot of money that's been spending much of it -- I don't support but the reality is is that we entered in the early days of his administration.
Nobody was ready for that nobody anticipated the experts didn't warn us about and we spent the last could have used fun day yeah I think he knew that when he was saying these things -- recession had already begun the housing bubble had burst the year actually I don't think anybody who's going to be as bad as -- -- today.
So because it was bad he passed soon he really meant to cut to mean that.
There are no programs that don't work he could he cut he cut back a couple tiny.
Big article clearly -- a lot of things that they haven't -- the need to what he says he's gonna do this he was humor is.
The -- Presidents we expect to wrapped present our values in the war.
And one of those values is being careful and cautious about the money we spent.
With little all the -- we wanna have that opportunity in the society want to train people for the future we wanted to do some things that protect the weakest among us in -- or.
A whole series of all the needs that we've come together as a people.
And some of -- cost a lot of money what all of -- seem to cost a lot of money and I would think the president is just selling -- propaganda -- -- -- trillion dollar depths.
I signed two trillion dollars spending cuts in the law.
Spending cuts to one -- -- and they don't think they cults us off what he was saying is that.
After -- over the next ten years instead of increasing spending by the ten trillion I wanted to.
I'll increase it by just seven and a half true.
Isn't that the C.
-- common goal only has two trillion dollar spending -- well -- -- yeah.
Easy in kind of broad strokes to -- -- ocean's films -- okay.
But -- the real change.

Americans in Iraq he wants to spend more on defense not as much as Romney but more.
Yeah let's suspend everything.
What listen listen I'm not gonna disagree with you and fight you and every one of these issues because there are some things that I wish we would -- and I'd do would rather get out of Afghanistan what good that would build an error.
There -- things if so is not.
I don't think for any reasonable person to defend all spending programs little -- but what we have our politics really in the end.
Is a fight over priorities -- here's one last reason why I don't trust your favorite candidate.
-- -- -- -- -- What I'm not going to be doing is using Justice Department resources.
To try to circumvent.
State laws on this issue.
And he absolutely hands he's rated more of these marijuana dispensaries than Bush's people -- John I gotta tell you.

You know I think he his.
Bowed to political pressure on it I think of that whole that in the second term he's gonna come around and do -- some of that village you and I pressure wanna because that is truly.
The biggest ways out there's that failed war on drugs.
