“Why do you keep posting articles from the leftest MSM who obviously want McCain to derail Romney?”
You must not have noticed, but one of the goals here at freerepublic if I interpret JR and most freepers correctly is to derail Romney.
Yep, and playing right into the Democrat plan.
I thank you for your honesty. But it is a foundation of conservatism that we not adopt the left’s “end justifies the means” yellow journalism simply because we think our job is to “derail” someone.
I realise that leaves some here with a conundrum. Their principles of conservatism require they defend conservative values, respect the facts, and judge people fairly.
But if they do that, they can’t fulfil their “mission” to “derail Romney”, so they throw their own principles out the window. Some of them can’t bring themselves to do it directly, so they instead find liberal newspaper articles to do it instead — because the liberals never had any trouble making wild assumptions and misrepresenting the facts.
Once they have some “news article” that has completely misrepresented the facts in what they rarely label their “analysis” section, the freepers feel free to quote liberally from the liberals, after all it’s “just what was in the article”.
Romney maybe derailing himself in a most interesting way...
