Liberals are stateless in that they refuse to connect the past to the present. We're told by the White House press secretary that it no longer matters if the Administration lied about what happened at Benghazi since that was so last year.
Because liberal policies always fail and never live up to the promises liberals make in order to get them enacted liberals have been forced to develop a stateless view of life. Past promises are irrelevant and temporal contradictions don't matter in the liberal world; though liberals have no problem declaring any present past disconnects heinous crimes if they apply to conservatives.
Similarly the fact that Bill Clinton lied under oath and was disbarred means nothing to liberals who honor him because those crimes were in the past and the past doesn't mean anything.
To liberals not only is past performance not an indicator of future success but past performance doesn't exist when trying to assess the likelihood of current promises of what will happen.
In the liberal mind all that matters is the never ending growth of liberal power. Just as liberals didn't care about how welfare was destroying black families so long as blacks continued to vote for Democrats liberals don't care if an American ambassador was killed so long as it didn't keep Obama from being elected.
One of the key reasons liberal policies are always failures is that they ignore the past. As George Santayana said "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
