ELECTION: Republicans have a new tactic

Since observing Mitt Romney’s campaign, I see a new tactic taken up by Republicans in campaigning as well as in comments submitted to newspaper blogs: Ignore the truth.

The best example is the continual moaning of the conservatives about President Obama’s statements (or lack thereof) about the violence at one of our embassies. Anyone with a beating heart and the ability to open their eyes observed the president, on video, stipulate that terrorists and/or terrorism was responsible, yet the conservatives continue to bleat that “Obama didn’t say anything about terrorism for 14 days,” or something equally as ignorant and childish.

What amazes me is how they can continue to ignore the continual proof that their assertions are false. It reminds me of a child denying taking a cookie, and all the while the jar is stuck on his hand.
