I repeatedly have this argument with liberal friends who say “I’m against torture, but it’s obvious it works. But I’m still against it because it’s bad!”
But it doesn’t work. It doesn’t actually work.
Remember the NRA’s old ad campaign featuring average Joes who said “I’m the NRA!” This guy really is the NRA.
This from a woman who most likely voted for George W. Bush. Twice. I don’t know how these people keep from bursting into flames from the cognitive dissonance going on in their heads.
Here’s hoping Chrysler shows that lies have consequences.
Ignorant, sociopathic or both? You make the call.
That’s your answer? “You weren’t supposed to see that.”?
This clown is on the House Science Committee.
Just shut the country down and board it up. If this is how we’re going to run it, might as well close up shop.
Romney is widely credited with having “won” the debate. By lying, apparently.
Winning by cheating is sadly a fact of life in politics, business, sports, personal relationships and saving your immortal soul (see my published works). Hopefully, however, the Obama campaign’s promise to hit Romney on his lies and evasions will not only be implemented fully, it’ll resonate.
GOODRIDGE: Governor Romney, tell me — what would you suggest I say to my 8 year-old daughter about why her mommy and her ma can’t get married because you, the governor of her state, are going to block our marriage?
ROMNEY: I don’t really care what you tell your adopted daughter. Why don’t you just tell her the same thing you’ve been telling her the last eight years.” —
I’m not sure I understand the New York Times’ Alessandra Stanley’s complaint about MSNBC panelists calling Republican claims “lies” when, you know, it’s completely provable that they are, in fact, deliberately factually incorrect.
Josh Barro actually hits what I think is the perfect tone if you’re someone who still believes journalists must be unbiased bastions of truth. Yes, Obama has, in terms of the economy, been an underwhelming leader. But Romney and Ryan have failed to produce any evidence they’ll do any better — other than market faeries and trickle down — and, most importantly, they just lied through their teeth to you.
