Don’t confuse me with facts…

Leftists constantly flatter themselves that they are sooooooo much smarter than those beknighted souls on the Right.  Yet, as Ronald Reagan famously said: “The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant – it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so!”

Just one of a myriad of examples:

“The Bush tax cuts caused the deficit.” CNN’s liberal host Fareed Zakaria said, “The Bush tax cuts are the single largest part of the black hole that is the federal budget deficit.” False. In 2002, tax revenues were $1.85 trillion. In 2007, revenues had grown to $2.57 trillion — a 39 percent increase. Unfortunately, outlays increased almost as much. In 2002, outlays were $2.01 trillion. In 2007 — the last year before the recession and before TARP, the various “stimulus” programs, bailouts and ObamaCare — outlays were $2.73 trillion, a 36 percent increase.   Larry Elder – What About the Stupid Lies Liberals Believe?

This is just one more example of one the Left’s guiding principles:  My mind is made up, don’t confuse me with facts!
