And the Republicans continue to lie!!! Lying has become their platform. Thier hobby of lies is now their full-time occupation!!
Neil Newhouse, Romney’s pollster said the campaign will not “be dictated by fact-checkers”. He plainly is saying to the electorate, “To hell with facts, because Mr. Miss & Mrs. America YOU ARE IGNORANT ASSES… you don’t know your ears from your asses so we can manipulate the truth, we will blatantly, and unashamedly play upon what we are sure of – you are ignorant of the facts!” Ryan’s speech was a true enactment of this.
Huffington Post’s headline says Paul Ryan Address: Convention Speech Built On Demonstrably Misleading Assertions »
The Washington Post - Mr.Ryan's speech: Effective maybe, but definitely misleading
Daily Kos - "Paul Ryan fails--the truth." WOW. Jonathan Bernstein whales on Ryan big-time.
"It was, by any reasonable standards, a staggering, staggering lie. Here’s Paul Ryan about Barack Obama: He created
a bipartisan debt commission. They came back with an urgent report. He thanked them, sent them on their way, and then did exactly nothing.
“They.” “Them.” “Them.” Those words are lies. Because Paul Ryan was on that commission. “Came back with an urgent report.” That is a lie. The commission never made any recommendations for Barack Obama to support or oppose. Why not? Because the commission voted down its own recommendations. Why? Because Paul Ryan, a member of the commission, voted it down and successfully convinced the other House Republicans on the commission to vote it down."

FOX News Fox News' Sally Kohn: Paul Ryan's Speech Set World Record for Greatest Number of Blatant Lies and
Ms Kohn says “No decent person wants to go down in history as a liar, but Paul Ryan has won the gold medal for a single speech that was full of blatant lies.”
Mr. Ryan you have always scraped the bottom but you continue to sink your opportunistic, exploitative, devious, unprincipled and unscrupulous self to below zero. I personally did not know that any human being could achieve this depth in stinky mire. When FOX NEWS with all the Conservative Unfair and Unbalanced character that God can bestow on a group can call you out, you are subhuman…or worse!
MEANER, GREEDIER, COLDER AND A LIAR
On the GM Plant Closure Ryan said that then candidate Obama said “'I believe that if our government is there to support you … this plant will be here for another hundred years.' That’s what he said in 2008." Ryan continued his lie and painting the picture with his “lie brush”.. "That plant didn’t last another year. It is locked up and empty to this day. And that’s how it is in so many towns Today, where the recovery that was promised is nowhere in sight,"
Facts are Obama promised no such thing. The plant closed in December 2008 -- while George W. Bush was president!!
Republicans (Ryan) blame President Obama for killing bills that Republicans kill
The Debt Commission
Ryan thumped the president for not supporting a deficit commission.It is Ryan who voted against this commission and drove the final nail in its coffin. But the fact that he voted against it, is an insignificant detail he refuses to mention or even remember or accept.
Republicans (Ryan) use dirty digs to disparage the President on actions that they themselves do. It is OK if Republicans do it but “bro” that’s not for you!!
$716 billion taken from Medicare
Ryan made it a foundation of his fight, claiming that Obama "funneled" $716 billion out of Medicare to pay for Obamacare. Ryan fraudulently refused to mention that his own budget plan relies on those very same savings and further, that his $716 billion is earmarked for giving additional tax cuts to the top 1%.
Republicans (Ryan) took the country to the brink of bankruptcy and Republicans caused a downgrade of the country’s credit score but blame Obama. Apparently in a case of “The devil (Obama) made us do it!”
GOP Causes S&P Downgrade, but Republican Candidates Blame Obama - The Nation, Ben Adler, August 8, 2011
“Two of S&P’s biggest concerns about whether the United States will pay off its debt are whether Republicans will be
so insane as to refuse to lift the debt ceiling, a possibility Republicans intentionally stoked fears of, and whether the United States will raise much-needed tax revenue. Specifically, S&P changed its baseline assumption that the Bush tax cuts would expire on schedule in 2012 because Republicans are so insistent that they must be renewed. “We have
changed our assumption on this because the majority of Republicans in Congress continue to resist any measure that would raise revenues,” wrote S&P. That adds $4 trillion over ten years to the projected deficits.”
Ryan also packaged and delivered the Standard & Poor's downgrade of U.S. government debt to Obama at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington DC. What Ryan dishonestly, deceitfully, and fraudulently, failed to mention is what S&P in clarifying its reason for the downgrade made reference to the debt ceiling standoff. -Paul Ryan himself was the standard bearer for House Republicans in politicizing the process of raising the debt ceiling.
But will America be fooled by this dishonesty? Unfortunately some will flatly be fooled while others, driven by hate for the President will justify the truth in these lies… an oxymoron if ever there was one. The hope is that these“Morons of the Oxy type” will be in the minority and the majority will see these not just as lies but go further to insist that what America needs in leaders is honesty and we will all recall the words of the gem I learnt at pre-school “Speak the truth and speak it ever, cost it what it will. He who hides the wrong he did, does the wrong thing still”.
These Republicans, if they win in November cannot be expected by some streak of pure magic, to be honest and truthful in their dealings suddenly after they gain the power they connive to achieve by pure, unadulterated mendacious lies.
We can only keep Hope alive and trust as in the words of Bob Marley in his song “War”
“And we know we shall win
As we are confident
In the victory of good over evil – of good over evil…. of good over evil.
The “we” being the American people.
