Forgettable quotes from Republican national fear convention (RNFeC)

In my opinion, Melania Trump's plagiarism fiasco, when she spoke the phrases from Michelle Obama’s 2008 convention speech, were examples of GOP campaign incompetence. In fact the Republicans are responsible for her fiasco. They don't care about fact checking or plagiarism, unless doing so pertains to intimidating somebody else.

"Your word is your bond and you do what you say you are going to do...." Melania Trump. 

I'm sorry to tell you this Mrs. Trump, but there will never be a Mexican built and paid for wall between the US & Mexico.

"Your word is your bond and you do what you say you are going to do...." NOT.

"When your essay is due in one hour but you didn't start it yet #FamousMelaniaTrumpQuotes"
"Your word is your bond and you do what you say you are going to do"....OMG, Melania Trump obviously didn't receive much consultation about her speech and the "ghost" writer likely never existed, but, rather,was a figment of Melania's imagination.

Another forgettable quote was in the repeated Pavlov Dog reflex descriptions to Donald Trump as being "a good man", made by "Charlie McCarthy" impersonator and vice presidential pick, Governor Mike Pence of Indiana.  In fact, Pence tried hard to convince attendees that they should feel good about supporting Trump, who he repeatedly called “this good man.” Nevertheless, Governor Pence never offered a compelling example of why he said Trump was a good man? As a professed Christian, how was Governor Pence coerced into telling such a big lie?  
A third forgettable quote was when Ted Cruz was criticized for failing to endorse Donald Trump, but told the "RNFeC" to "Vote Your Conscience", rather than endorse the candidate.  

As Cruz continued speaking, and the crowd began to realize that an endorsement seemed less likely, the cheers that marked the early part of the speech became boos.

Lies were laced like tangled threads into the forgettable quotes at the "RNFeC", especially about President Barack Obama, who (by the way) isn't running for re-election. For example, Senator Cruz accused President Obama of closing Guantanamo but opening US borders.  #BigLie  In fact, Guantanamo is still open and more illegal immigrants have been tragically deported under President Obama's administration than during any of his predecessor's terms.  So sad, but true and Cruz told a #BigLie.

"When it comes to getting tough on immigration, Republican candidates talk the talk, but Obama walks the walk. President Obama has deported more people than any U.S. president before him, and almost more than every other president combined from the 20th century." Tragically true, but another in the litany of RNFeC lies.

Although the US Constitution allows unmitigated freedom of speech, there are ethical standards that clearly transcend fundamental liberties. Telling the truth, thoughtful expression without plagiarism and honesty aren't defined in our American freedoms. Yet, their absence exposes an inability to express trust, competence, leadership and respect. Americans can't support the Republican nominees to be potential world leaders, because they are clearly incapable of moral statesmanship.  Forgettable RNFeC quotes should be completely erased from political narratives, because the words, and expressions don't represent, or reflect the high standards of leadership or the values of most Americans.
