    Conservative No Fact Zone

    Things People Say That Are Not Intended To Be Factual Statements:

    ---

    When Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) stood on the floor of the upper chamber, telling the C-Span cameras and gathered attendees something that prompted his office to later say in his defense 'his remark was not intended to be a factual statement' did this bring the US Congress or the political debate to new lows?

    This politician, Jon Kyl, is on a special dirty dozen list and coincidentally he is the son of former congress person John Kyl who was on the original Dirty Dozen list put out by environmentalists in the early 1970's during/after the first Earth Day campaigns in the US.

    Like Sly and the Family Stone says...

    Let's see. You've got one incident to report. Then a sliming by association. And a clever youtube of a '60s song. And that's the entire basis for your post?

    I'd say the "no fact zone" is right here in this thread.

    One incident of statements made by conservatives that were later defended as not having been meant to be taken as factually correct?

    hmmm, for starters just Google: Ronald Reagan

    Please provide a list of statements made by "conservatives" (which to a lib means anyone to the right of Ted Kennedy). Then we can look at a list of statements made by liberals. I know which one will be far longer. Liberals would lie even the truth would do as well.

    During his address Friday, the former Massachusetts governor implored the audience to stick close to true conservative principles, which he contrasted with false liberal principles.

    "Ronald Reagan used to say that the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant, but that what they know is wrong," Romney said.

    The second he dropped the Reagan quote, several conservative journalists in the press room threw up their hands in despair. Romney Misquotes Reagan At CPAC
