If you ask Jerry Brown today about his plan for the future of California, he will tell you he plans to lower taxes, put people back to work and of course improve education. He said the same thing when he ran for governor last time.
Funny thing is, in one of his post governor interviews, he admitted that all of those campaign promises are a lie, nobody knows what they are doing once they get into office. During an interview on the program “CNN Late Edition” in 1992 Jerry Brown (D-CA) admitted that nearly everything he said in his first campaign for governor of California was a lie.
Here are Brown’s remarks (H/T The Blaze)
Interviewer: You said something a moment ago that I have to follow up on and I have to draw you out on. You said you don’t have to lie anymore now that you’re not a politician. What did you lie about when you were governor?
Jerry Brown: It’s all a lie. You’re pretending there’s a plan…
Interviewer: What did you lie about?
Jerry Brown: You run for office and the assumption is “Oh, I know what to do”. You don’t. I didn’t have a plan for California. Clinton doesn’t have a plan. Bush doesn’t have a plan.
Interviewer: You said you had a plan for California and you lied because you didn’t have a plan?
Jerry Brown: You say you’re going to lower taxes, you’re going to put people to work, you’re gonna improve the schools, you’re going to stop crime… crime is up, schools are worse, taxes are higher. I mean be real!

OK Mr. Brown, were you lying when you said you were lying, or are you lying today when you say you know what you are doing?
