The truth is often a bitter pill to swallow especially when the truth is coming from a liberal black man acknowledging the successes of conservatives.
During a recent appearance at CPAC liberal commentator, Van Jones praised Republican governors in Texas, Ohio, South Carolina and Alabama for taking the lead on prison reform. Jones said the governors in these states reduced crime and the prison population a mantra of the Democrats.
As a result of his comments, Jones has been criticized by Democrats and other liberals who have long since talked about prison reform but never went beyond the talks. Instead, liberal governors have seen an increase in crime and prison population under their leadership.
