The left wing nuts need to lie to themselves as much as they do to us to buy into the crap they believe.
This is the foundation of the problem. THEY LIE TO THEMSELVES! That is why they can print and broadcast such absolutely backwards information with no qualm of conscience.
Example: A New York Times “White House reporter” uses his opportunity at a Presidential Press Conference-Prime Time to ask a touchy-feely question when there are at least 5 major issues that the president should be grilled on.
For this reporter, asking a hard question would be counter-productive to maintaining the image of Obama as a competent head of state.
