Romney Calls On Conservatives To Learn From His Mistakes

"It's up to us to make sure that we learn from our mistakes, and my mistakes, and that we take advantage of that learning to make sure that we take back the nation, take back the white House, get the Senate and put in place conservative principles," Romney said.

Strange Bed Fellows.

But, be more concerned with who's been camping in your Children's heads.

And unless you've thrown down with the liberal agenda, you're not the real Native Pride of old.

The Press Has Turned on Paul Ryan

His budget made the big mistake of betraying his cynicism

....Ryan figured out that, in the heat of an election, the average political reporter wasn’t going to bust him for even the most brazen whoppers and policy-reversals. The stories, such as they were, would be ghettoized in the fact-checking precincts of the media establishment—not exactly a common destination for the average voter. If the policy controversies seeped into front-page stories, they would usually be cloaked in the he-said/she-said vernacular of false equivalence.

Hence Ryan’s willingness during the campaign to attack Obama for “raiding” Medicare to the tune of $716 billion dollars, even though the budget he released earlier that year advocated the same thing. A typical Politico piece left the accusation of hypocrisy to an Obama spokesman—“Congressman Ryan knows that the $716 billion in Medicare savings that he included in two of his own budgets do not cut a single guaranteed Medicare benefit”—where it could, of course, be easily dismissed.(In fairness, some outlets like the Times did note the change in position themselves, but tended to do it in passing, far down in their pieces.)

But there’s one insight Ryan didn’t fully glean: You can treat politics like a game, and you can assume reporters will, too. But you can’t go so far as to admit it’s a game.

During the campaign, Ryan never broke character. When pressed on Medicare, he and his handlers would simply double-down:“Having already saddled the country with $5 trillion in new debt while cutting Medicare by $716 billion to pay for 'Obamacare,' President Obama cannot defend his broken promises,” an aide told the Times last August,“so he and his campaign are resorting to tired and misleading attacks.”

The problem with Ryan’s new budget—in which he reverts to his pre-campaign position on Medicare cuts—is that it more or less concedes the whole campaign, with its righteous defense of Medicare, was a charade. Among the Washington press corps, this is a major no-no. Depending on the circumstances, reporters may be happy to enable these reinventions, but they are loath to acknowledge their role in them. Ryan basically rubbed their noses in it. Even Politico, whose coverage most resembles ends-justifying scorekeeping, seemed to bridle at the transgression. The last five paragraphs of its main Ryan budget piece catalogued his history of Medicare flip-flops. The closing riff quoted a centrist budget wonk—the kind of person Ryan has made a career of courting—essentially outing him as full of it.

There’s a lesson in here for pols on the make: You can commit all manner of policy sins. If you’re earnest and charming, you can even attack your opponents for ideas over which you share paternity. But do not—I repeat, do not—show up the political media. Hell hath no fury like my fellow hacks spurned.

Maybe the coast is clear. It's hard to say.

But I'm beginning to think the imposters on here are on George Soros' payroll to disrupt this thread intentionally. Too many of us are hitting too close to home.

Wouldn't put it past the liberal propagandists to go that far.

The New Republic (TNR) is a liberal American magazine of commentary on politics and the arts published continuously since 1914.

New Republic editor Michael Whitney Straight (1948 to 1956) was later discovered to be a spy for the KGB.

In 1995, writer Ruth Shalit was fired for repeated incidents of plagiarism and an excess of factual errors in her articles.

In 1998, features writer Stephen Glass was revealed in a Forbes Digital investigation to have fabricated a story called "Hack Heaven". An investigation found that most of Glass' stories had used or been based on fabricated information.

In July 2007, after The New Republic published an article by an American soldier in Iraq titled "Shock Troops," allegations of inadequate fact-checking were leveled against the magazine. Critics alleged that the piece contained inconsistent details indicative of fabrication.

So much for credibility when it comes to this article.

Type the numbers you see in the image on the right: 6660
If one believes in "those things". Biblical Numerology and 666.

Just interesting that number came up in "the image" to type in.

<quoted text>
It.. it was in my sweat lodge last weekend. It came to me in a dream that... I don't know how to say it... we sucked down about 12 peyote buttons each and the next thing you know I could see the entire conservative movement spread out before me on the prairie. In my dream they were all just pink assholes. No, I mean really, just puckered brownish pink anuses spread out as far as the eye could see. They were trying to say something to me, but I had to get out of there and I ran and ran like a deer chased by a ravening wolf.

Ever since then I've realized that I wasn't cut out to be a conservative. Well, old friend, there you have it.

Sounds like reading or watching any 'news' story from Fox News, best to view with a ton of skepticism.
