Why aren’t Bush critics believeable?

One of our liberal California senators is bragging how she brought goodies to San Francisco. She forgot to mention that records show she didn’t vote for the federal bill granting these favors. Typical?

Many liberals believe that the presidential election was stolen in Florida. Two news organizations did independent recounts that refuted this position.

They say Bush brought on a recession. National economic reports show that the recession started months before Bush took office, but under Bush the economy has started to rebound nicely.

The fail to mention that President Clinton did nothing to stop Bin Laden or other terrorist groups when he was in office.

The rhetoric is capped off with a theory that think tanks are deceiving all of us as a ploy to aid Bush’s re-election campaign.

When will it stop?

Why don’t the critics become more believable?

Could it be a lack of facts on which to base their opinions, or is it just bah, humbug?
