    I have a feeling that someone leaned on Factcheck dot org between then and now. I don't mean to say that Rove called them up and threatened to have their knees collectively broken (though I wouldn't put that past him) but I do mean to say that Republicans probably started bitching that FactCheck was "liberal" for telling the truth. So FactCheck breaks out some pro-Administration information, not caring whether or not it's true so they won't be tagged as having a "liberal bias." It's just like the "liberal media." The conservatives bitch so much about it that the media bends over backwards to let Republicans know they're not biased.
