Now begins the final phase of this cognitive dissonance campaign. America’s 57th presidential election is the first devoted to calling the nation’s bluff. When Mitt Romney selected Paul Ryan, Republicans undertook the perilous but commendable project of forcing voters to face the fact that they fervently hold flatly incompatible beliefs.

Last paragraph is great.
“The Hope and The Change” documentary that will not help Barry and his Regime. Hannity previewed it tonight.
Cognitive dissonance...LMAO............George get off your ass and back on the bar...I'm buying!
As I've been saying for eons, but not getting any traction. The Left had/has no right to appropriate misleading terms to further their purposes. Leftists are not Liberals period
FReepers undertook the perilous but commendable project of forcing George Will to face the fact that he fervently holds beliefs flatly incompatible with conservatism.
Thanks neverdem. Partisan Media Shills ping.
Well tell me, genius....just why would you call Will your newfound term, one that all of us have known since childhood, “dumbass”?
Inquiring minds want to know.
What’s the prissy Cubs fan have to say now?
Yeah...like that's going to happen.
Interesting you’ve been here less than a month and most of your posts contain the word dumb@ss. Lovely, just lovely.
What’s a DUM BASS?
I’ve been here since 05 and many of my posts have included the phrase “dumbass” especially when Obama and his cohorts are involved ... so what it your point?
“The Left had/has no right to appropriate misleading terms to further their purposes. Leftists are not Liberals period”
Agreed. The word ‘liberal’ is a good and valid one which I wish we could recover from the enemy, along with ‘gay’ and ‘comrade’.
Some day. Maybe.
The level of discourse is my point. Your choice of words is your choice. It’s a reflection of the intellect of the person posting. Breitbart used his mind and words like a mighty sword without resorting to dumb@ss.
Challenge me, if you must, but this poster’s short history reflects badly on FR. The level of drive-by newb posting has sunk to sewer level.
As my dad would often say of men like George..”now there goes a man educate well above his intelligence”
Just because he is short lived on FR, this makes him a drive by newb? We were all newbs at some point, an yet here we are.
Will is spot on, here. Hammer met nail. Brilliant piece and obvious — truth in a nut shell.

Actually, I have been on this site for since its inception, just been booted off repeatedly. There are certain people here you dont criticize and certain politicians.....but as long as email accounts are free and I can change my ip address, ill be back....LOL..

So what do you think now?
What is that rambling mess of a last paragraph about?
Nevada was not silent. We primaried out a Republican governor (Gibbons), replaced him with another Republican governor (Sandoval), who then replaced a scandal-ridden Senator who managed to vote the right way on most issues (Ensign), with one of the most conservative House members (Heller), and learned from previous mistakes to not put in a loser (Angle) in that seat (Amodei).
That’s being silent? We have a whole train of conservatives we’re pruning in Nevada.
Those who lie to good people bear a tremendous responsibility.
Barack Obama has no idea what will happen when good people learn the truth about him.

Sort of gives the word DUMBASS a whole new meaning, don’t it?
Btw, when I replied to you, I didn’t know you were getting whacked already. I replied because you missed the target by a mile, because you didn’t like the guy who errected the target.. Didn’t mean to pile on.
That was pretty stupid on the poster’s part. Who knows on the internet?
I just don’t appreciate the level of conversation being dumbed down on FR and the tolerance of trolls now.
I would say you have excellent instincts, a great sense of smell and are very astute at summing up character, and you don’t take long doing any of it. Like lightening. Neat. ;D
Thanks for the kudos. I’ve been around nine years and can sniff out a troll pretty well. Seems pretty easy around election season.
I’ve been taking a break from FR, but checked in and spotted that one in one post. Like fish in a barrel. LOL
Best to you!
Not meant to knock Nevada but I’m sick of cities and states that keep voting in Rats then complaining about the mess.
Obviously the good minority’s of conservative voters suffer along with them.
Perhaps the Obsma young voter who has no job would be a better example.
We’re voting in conservatives here in Nevada. I don’t understand your post.
What's an "U think"?
For that matter calling them “leftists” isn’t accurate either.
