Paul Ryan lies at RNC, gets called out for it

Don't blame President Barack Obama for something that his predecessor, George W. Bush, should get the blame for.  Paul Ryan did so anyway.  A plant closed in Wisconsin while Bush was in office and yet, Obama got the blame anyway.

It doesn't make sense.  It's makes zero sense to me.  This is the probably many of us have with the political system.  Politicians give speeches with lies and distort reality.  They have got to stop doing that.

It's why I have zero trust in Paul Ryan and would not trust him as the second guy in command.

What got me was that a writer for Fox News even called him out!  I didn't think that they were allowed to do that.  I thought it went against their by-laws.
On the other hand, to anyone paying the slightest bit of attention to facts, Ryan’s speech was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech. On this measure, while it was  Romney who ran the Olympics, Ryan earned the gold.
It should be noted that the writer is a contributor to Fox News.  She calls out Ryan for using his speech to distract people from the record.

The fact-checkers at Think Progress were very busy on Wednesday night.  Who knew that this RNC could lead to the hiring of fact checkers this week?!?
