Why let the facts stand in the way of a good mantra?

Our blog of the week, Gay Patriot, notes how infrequently the critics of President Bush’s decision to topple Saddam Hussein cite any evidence to support their mantra that Bush lied to or deceived the public. And how infrequently the MSM calls these critics (some of whom include MSM members) on their unsupported attacks.

One of the great good things about a free society is that we can criticize our leaders. And I’m not discouraging those opposed to the president for taking issue with his policies. What is troubling, however, is that they are not faulting his record as it is — but as they wish it were. And in age when the president’s speeches and public comments from his entire term of office are easily accessible to any individual (with a computer and modem), it’s reprehensible that his adversaries continually misrepresent his record.
