Walker Caught Falsely Inflating Tax Cut Effect

Pants on Fire!Pants on Fire, says PolitiFact, for Walker's vastly overstating the impact of his modest tax cut plan by using made-up numbers:

Gov. Scott Walker says typical Wisconsin homeowner will save $680 in property taxes over four years

A loan officer or mortgage broker pulling this kind of stunt explaining how a re-fi would save you lots of money would get his or license pulled.
What insecurity, ambition or character flaw drives Walker's repeated dishonesty?

Why can't he speak the truth?

Just tight of 78 PolitiFact vetted statements rated "True," and 29 "False" or  worse,"Pants on Fire."

Why is there so often a manipulation, a distortion, a twist in his words?

Is it all a game to him? Is the goal to see if you can fool all the people all the time?

Why can't he speak the truth?

1. Because it's an inconvenient truth.
2. Because he can't handle the truth.
