Anderson Cooper HAMMERS Flip-Flopping Republicans: 'Why The FUDGING Of FACTS?'





ThinkProgress:


On Thursday, CNN host Anderson Cooper shone the spotlight on Republicans who voted against a U.N. treaty protecting people with disabilities, highlighting lawmakers who backed away from supporting the measure in response to conservative misinformation and opposition.


Sens. Roy Blunt (R-MO) and Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) featured prominently in Cooper’s “Keeping Them Honest” segment. He reported that Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS), formerly a co-sponsor of the motion to ratify the treaty, suddenly backed out even after meeting with former GOP Presidential candidate Bob Dole, a proponent of the measure.


The lawmakers declined an invitation to come onto the show to explain themselves, leaving Cooper to condemn their dishonesty:



COOPER: And keeping them honest, they used arguments that just frankly did not square with the facts. They weren’t true. We can only guess their motivations, and frankly, some of this is just so baffling that we’d be taking wild guesses, and we just don’t want to do that.

1. Lies, Anderson. You can use the word. The MSM only now is starting to call the Republican crazies

on their BS. Where have they been for he past decade? Anderson you don't have to take any wild guesses. Just look at the record. Lies, lies, and more lies.

2. Pandering to the tin-foil hat crowd, that's why.

3. Go on Cooper ...

COOPER: And keeping them honest, they used arguments that just frankly did not square with the facts. They weren’t true. We can only guess their motivations, and frankly, some of this is just so baffling that we’d be taking wild guesses, and we just don’t want to do that.


You can see it ... You can say his name. Or, maybe, you should just play this:



And ask, if this craziness has anything to do with that craziness.
