Labeling The Bush Ads

In honor of what the Republican’s claim was just a “palate cleanser,” we provide nutritional information for President Bush’s first 3 television commercials.

The major controversy around the ads centered on their use of 9/11 footage (an event Bush needs to claim for himself, or he can forget about any more dinners at the White House).

To us, however, the most significant thing about the ads are how completely trifling they are. The response from FactCheck.org was: No facts to check!

(…Except for the claim that the recession started on Clinton’s watch, when the official word is that it didn’t start until after the Bush party was seated.)
