Why do people still believe anything that comes out of this administration
Honestly. Normally when a person lies to you, don't you question everything that person tells you for a long, long time? Isn't it necessary for the liar to build up credibility and restore trust? You don't erase the slate and start over. You take little things and build from there.

When my kids were teens they tried the normal BS that teens tried to get away with. Nothing major but just enough that it would force me to question them over seemingly little things until they earned my trust and faith again. They eventually did but it was not a given and they paid for the consequences of their mistakes for a long time.

Why on earth would anyone, media, the public, hell, even repugs, believe anything that comes out of this administration? For the sake of argument put aside the disagreement over the 2000 and 2004 elections, everything else for the last four and half years has been one big long lie fest. The list is so long you can not even begin to draw up the offenses without shaking your head in amazement. No Child Left Behind, Clear Skies, tax breaks, corporate accountability, WMDs, war, Jessica Lynch, Pat Tillman, no torture, 9/11, Social Security, terrorists, the list is absolutely endless. We aren't talking about a differences in policy - we are talking outright, on purpose, blatant lies. Ad infinitum.

Guess that is why when you listen to a news report that starts with, "Reported by the White House today...." you have to wonder why anyone bothers? Why doesn't the media feel the need to add a disclaimer like, "according to the WH..." or "in apparent disagreement with reports from ________ the WH has said...." I know the MSM is just another faction of a government that is bought and paid for but how do you set aside any type of ethics for a liar?

End of rant.
