Confirmation bias.


How is that confirmation bias? Obama and Company have been pushing this lie about Romney's plan for weeks, and have since doubled down on it since the debate. Now that the source that the Choad-in-Chief has been citing to claim Romney is a liar is calling Obama out on his own falsehoods, how exactly is that confirming to someone's bias?


Romney could lie a million times and Obama ten and you'd see just the ten, ignoring the others.


Maybe it's because the Romney "lies" all seem to be invisible, while Obama's lies are clear as day. Granted, the lies are on page one, whereas the retractions and corrections are on page 10, but truth is still truth. One would think that you atheist types would appreciate the real vs. the imaginary.
