I realize that in politics there is an inherent tendency toward exaggeration, but I would like to be able to trust that the person I vote for mostly tells me the truth. Following are the sad results, as of 8/31/2012

Governor Mitt Romney:
PolitiFact rates Mostly True and True at 29%

Vice President Joe Biden:
PolitiFact rates Mostly True and True at 43%

Congressman Paul Ryan:
PolitiFact rates Mostly True and True at 28%

And of interest to Wisconsin
Governor Scott Walker:
PolitiFact rates Mostly True and True at 20%
