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?

You don't think that Obama and his crew claiming that a man who documents his disageements with them actually agrees with them is confirmation bias in an almost psychotic version?

Seems a petty firm confirmation to me.

Some seem to believe that when the left makes a bogus charge it is due to the fact that at that moment they are using that exact tactic they hang on the other side.

I think that is ridiculous and just a coincidence. I think the left is using every form of hypocrisy and dishonesty anyone can imagine, so of course when they blame the other side they are doing it.
