  • Mike Pence - unctuous???

    I had an interesting discussion with my mom yesterday. She said she thinks Mike Pence is unctuous. I didn't know what the word meant, so I looked it up.

    (of a person) excessively or ingratiatingly flattering

    unpleasantly and excessively suave or ingratiating in manner or speech


    One website described such a person as one who is overly nice, in hopes of getting something from you.

    My mom is a strong Democrat, so I usually don't put a lot of stock in what she says regarding politics. But her comment gave me pause for thought. I think she may be onto something here. What do you think?

    Even so, Come Lord Jesus,

    It sounds like she's describing Eddie Haskell!

      I thought it was an old English word for "anointed" "....you have an unction from the Holy One." LOL, I mean that's what it sounded like.

        I have not been able to get this post off my mind. Yes Pence seems nice and he does proclaim Jesus. So I have always hated this nagging feeling I have....that he seems awful slick.

        i truly hope that I am wrong.....

          I do not know the man.....but, listening to the red flag warning bells has saved my life more than once.

          So, I'd pay close attention to your gut. From experience, I seen your 1000% batting average in action, Donna.

            I had begun to think that Mr. Pence is nice in an exaggerated kind of way -- even down to the "eager to please" expression that is always on his face -- it is possible that he is just a nice, unassuming man. But for some, it does pay to be cautious of some overly nice people -- they can turn out to be backstabbers or self-interested schemers.

              I live in Indiana and always thought he seemed like he was a really nice guy. However, I was greatly disturbed when he started hanging with Trump. And then after my mom's comment, it's really got me waiting, watching, praying.

            Just remember that he is still a politician.
