Lies, lies, and more lies. Oh, they just can't stop.

Media Matters reports that a Bush lackey falsely stated on CNN that poverty has declined under Bush rather than Clinton. A flat-out lie. In fact, it's the opposite.

As MM states, "the poverty rate declined every year Clinton was in office, from 15.1 percent when he took office in 1993 to a low of 11.3 percent in 2000; it has risen every year that Bush has been in office, from 11.7 percent in 2001 to 12.7 percent in 2004."

The rule remains: you can't trust anything Bush people have to say -- nothing, zilch. You must doubt first, and then do research and confirm. (9 times out of 10 you'll discover they're wrong).
