I think a lot of politics (unfortunately) involves slandering those in charge. You can't honestly tell me that during Clinton's last term that conservatives just sat back and didn't say a word. Also, I imagine there's a bit of projection involved when people say they hate Bush. They really mean to say they hate Bush's policies or what he's done to the country.
As for convictions, liberals have them, too. We just realize that there's more to a situation than the black or white solution. The epitome of this black or white mindset (to me) was when Bush said that, "You're either with us, or against us in the fight against terrorism." So if a nation doesn't agree with the methods the U.S. has taken in the war on terror, that nation is suddenly against the U.S.?
