I'd put more value in the criticism if they put their money where their mouth was and proved that they could do better drawings on time for a comic deadline constantly.
First of all, that's not a basis for whether or not criticism is valid. Secondly, thousands of artists do it every month.
This guy shouldn't even be in the same industry with, say, Ariel Olivetti or Mauro Cascioli.

As much as I hate the affective fallacy, you cannot outright prove he has an inability to draw. While many people may dislike his drawing, there will be some people who like it, and outright saying they're wrong is absurd.

Of course they're wrong. Some people like piss in a cup, too. That doesn't make it lemonade.
He is untrained. He does not know the rudiments of composition, anatomy or perspective; this is clear from his work. This is not a matter of preference, it is objectively demonstrable. This is not a matter of style.

Liefeld is just a bad artist but for some reason he manages it to sell his stuff and has found his market so he gets work.

And basing an argument about the quality of something just because it/he makes a ton of money is just dumb. Michael Bay makes a shitload of money yet his movies are for the most part utter garbage (story and acting wise.. pretty explosions not always make a good movie).
