Leaders and the Facts

Leaders giving leadership lessons to other leaders is usually a dispute concerning perspectives on desired outcomes. What gets lost in the debate are the “real facts.” Former Senator Moynihan had the best take on this matter. He is paraphrased as saying, “Everyone has a right to their own opinion. They do not have a right to their own facts.” Another take on factual disputes is the saying, “There are always three parties to determining the facts. He said. She said. And the truth.”

Here’s an excerpt from CBN:

“Mike Huckabee tells the Brody File that Mitt Romney needs to admit that his healthcare plan in Massachusetts was a disaster…That’s what you want in a leader. Someone who says I tried something. It was different. It was bold; it didn’t work so we’ll try something else. That I can live with. What a person can’t really do is to say, “yes I tried it but it really worked great” when it didn’t.”
