In 70-90 percent of cases a politician will speak as unnaturally to the full truth as possible before an unwitting audience - and an audience to a politician is almost by definition unwitting -, merely as a basis technique to give the opponent a maximum of trouble in setting things straight, before a counter statement can be made.

Yeah, most politicians test the waters, finding out what the people want to hear, and then telling them what they want to hear. The truth doesn't matter here.
