That's about as good an example/definition of conformation bias as there is: you see the facts that support your beliefs, but those that contradict them are invisible to you.



Yeah, I get it--that was for effect. Pretty sad that the patron saint of moderate centrism and center-right governance is getting called out for lying by the very source he's citing as proof of the alleged lies he's trying to pin on his opponent. Even more sad that other moderates such as yourself are so emotionally invested in his failed presidency that you're not even willing to call him for being the abysmal failure that he is.
