  •  Mittens uses the fallacy of hindsight bias (5+ / 0-)

    The term hindsight bias refers to the tendency people have to view events as more predictable than they really are. After an event, Romne often believes that he knew the outcome of the event before it actually happened. The phenomenon has been demonstrated in a number of different situations, including politics and sporting events. In experiments, people often recall their predictions before the event as much stronger than they actually were.

    •  Republican's in general only remember what they (5+ / 0-)

      want to remember and as they remember it. Look at their worship of St. Ronald of Reagan. A man who raised taxes, reduced our nuclear stockpile, made deals with Democrats, etc. Hell, he even ARMED Osama bin Laden and the Taliban. Any one of those things would get him drummed out of today's Republican party. Yet you can't find a Republican alive who will bad mouth him. They've distorted or forgotten anything that contradicts their narrative.

      All my sig lines are hand-crafted by demented elves living in my skull.
