Oh my: Of his campaign promises, Jerry Brown caught on tape admitting: "It's all a lie"

You can say what you want about California's GOP gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman, but she's definitely not an admitted failure and liar.

Jerry Brown, already twice elected Governor of the state, admitted in September that he'd made plenty of horrific mistakes during his tenure.

He said that he realized which mistakes he'd made in the past and "vow[ed] not to repeat them if elected again".

Now, an old interview with Brown has surfaced in which he admits that all of his old campaign promises were out and out lies.

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!

For a liar, that was an awfully honest statement. I guess.

Folks in California: vote for Meg Whitman. Do you really want your state to commit suicide? Because that's what a vote for Jerry Brown represents.
