You would think that an ostensibly straight-laced policy wonk known for his research and homework would want to get off on the right foot and establish some credibility. Instead, he did exactly the opposite when he claimed that a Wisconsin auto plant closed on Obama's watch due to Obama's failed policies. In actual fact, that auto plant closed while BUSH was still in the White House.
The left-leaning media didn't waste any time in gleefully bringing this to the attention of viewers.
If the two sides are going to play fast and loose with the facts and the stats - with the GOP leading - Ryan's whole effectiveness is absolutely blunted. That's the whole problem in selecting a policy wonk as Veep. The man has absolutely nothing else going for him - he has never been a Governor or even a Senator and he's only 42 years old to boot. Few had even heard much about him until the 2010 elections.
Rimney made a bad choice and the fact that he hasn't gotten a bump from the selection clearly shows this.
In an era of fact-checking, pols have to know that they aren't going to get away with tampering with the truth. If the GOP wanted to have Ryan portrayed as some kind of Mr. Clean, that has now gone by the boards. Ryan has now proven that he will lie with the best of them.
Chartness the pundit
Thanks Chartness for setting the record straight. Without you here the Right wingers would just willy-nilly continue to spread the lies that were disseminated last night.
Brace yourself for kidney punches coming from all directions. Now you're being accused of being ingenuous, illiterate and of poor hearing. This is not surprising at all and was expected. When your detractors are defeated they resort to hurling epithets of which you never have to. That tells the readers as to whom has the upper hand.
Amid your busy superior options schedule, partaking in this debate is very time consuming as we know it to be, but the beauty is that you do it with so much grace.
But, Thweet Cheekth, youw bettewth have shown you fwom CNN'th own thite that CNN got it wwong again, ath uthual.
Pweathe wead what people kindly thhow you, tho ath not to embawwathth uth mowe.
As expected, you get caught in a lie then change your story. Too predictable. Your crush Obama said, within months of the plant having to close, that the govt could save it. He then gets elected, and does nothing to save the plant. It closes. Ryan told the truth. CNN lied. You lied. Then you lie while trying to weasle out of the first lie. At least CNN and MSNBC admitted their mistake.
You are absolutely pathetic. I feel sorry for every human that has to interact with you in real life.
