Your thoughts...

Are INTELLECTUALLY DISHONEST (from using lies, facts without context, not disclosing other facts, or let's not forget the current "in" word, alternative facts, etc.) political arguments (left, right, center or other) a reflection of one's thought processes as a business leader??

It's the new "spin". What's said is when the "spin" is so outrageous and your caught with foot in mouth disease and then you don't own up to it.

Just because you keep claiming something doesn't make it true - remember Sen McCarthy???

This is one of my pet peeves. I consider intellectually dishonest (whether deliberate or unconscious) arguments (political or otherwise) as an affront or disrespect to my intelligence.

I believe so. Intellectual dishonest arguments tend to show someone is out to win at all costs. Humility may not be their strong suit either.

I speculate that the complaint here may be more about resentment at the success of unethical leaders and Machiavellian corporate politicians. The article below should be of interest along those lines because it contrasts the leadership ideal with the reality of those unethical leaders like the still very popular former President Clinton who had no problem debating the meaning of the word "is" and was apparently forgiven by many idolizing supporters.
