Remember all those radio and television ads running for over a year supporting immigration "reform" sponsored by a group with the annoyingly deceptive title of "Americans for a Conservative Direction?" They were financed by Obama acolyte and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. However, if you think many people were fooled by those ads you would be wrong according to Jessica Meyer at Politico.
Meyer describes how naive Zuckerberg has been in his attempt to fool conservatives into actually believing that his organizcation is on their side. He apparently thought that an big infusion of Silicon Valley bucks was all that was needed to deceive folks that he politically opposes. The only one really fooled was Zuckerberg himself. Not only has he completely wasted millions of dollars, he is continuing to fool himself by throwing good money after bad as described by Meyer:

Fool me once, shame on - shame on you. Fool me - you can’t get fooled again.
Liberal elite are often shocked that conservatives are far more informed and substantive on issues than liberal sheep.
“But it also made initial high-profile stumbles with its ad strategy and, while trying to engage the tech community, ended up alienating some in it.”
Alienating the tech industry? You mean that industry where most of the people’s jobs are constantly threatened by immigrant workers getting visas bought and paid for by tech moguls like Zuckerberg? Whoever would have guessed that this push might alienate them?
Only in America.
Hey...Mr. Zuckerberg...I got yer “conservative direction” hangin’ right heah, little pal. Heh, heh...heh, heh...
Always question groups named the opposite of what they actually support and especially who is behind them.
“Liberal elite are often shocked that conservatives are far more informed...”
It comes from laying off the high fructose schlock the democrats flog every minute of every day.
It’s a wonder their base doesn’t keel over.
“The funny thing is that liberal groups were so intolerant of conservatives that they couldn’t even maintain a short term pretense of conservatism for the sake of passing an immigration bill with amnesty as the goal.
“’FWD.us lurched soon after it launched. The group nettled many of its own members with TV ads that emphasized the conservative credentials of some immigration reform advocates. One ad for South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham an instrumental figure in the Senate bills passage touted his support for the controversial Keystone XL pipeline and opposition to Obamacare. Yet another praised Alaska Democratic Sen. Mark Begich, a reform supporter, for backing oil drilling in the Arctic.
“’Liberal groups pulled ads from Facebook, while Tesla Motors founder Elon Musk and David Sacks, chief executive of social networking company Yammer, cut ties.
“’FWD.us stood by its strategy, but the ads haunted the fledgling organization, which hoped to strike a bipartisan tone but wound up losing some liberal backers.’”
Zuckerberg can’t be blamed for failing to fool people smarter than he is. After all, its not his fault he’s not as smart as he thinks.
What a tassle-topped little peter-puffer that guy is.
We also have better bull$hit detectors.
Only because we get $hit on so much. If Suckerberg wants some cheap laborers, he can go to the border and pick out as many Guatemalans as he wants.
Killer stuff Ray, that needs to go viral.
Why do none of those names and their associations surprise me?
Mark Zuckerberg’s a REAL democrat. He’s a lowlife liar like the rest of ‘em... How dare he pretend to be a conservative... even Micheal Moore’s not that tacky.
