September 04, 2012 journal, in interest of honesty and fairness Paul Ryan is called on the carpet. For it seemed to me from the beginning there was something missing about Paul Ryan and it must be truth. Pat Robertson was talking about those MSNBC liberals this morning, badmouthing them without taking note of what Congressman Ryan was really saying. Every news agency was discussing the errors in his motivational speech as the VP candidate for the warmongering corporate winging Republicans in the Tampa convention. "Vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) is taking flack on the morning news shows for his keynote address at the Republican National Convention Wednesday night. His speech was riddled with false claims, so much so that even Fox News wrote that--, "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&misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech." Here are the most glaring lies from his speech: 1. "A downgraded America." Ryan blamed the president for the nation's credit downgrade in August 2011 after Republicans threatened to allow the government to default on its debt for the first time in history. But the ratings agency explicitly blamed "Republicans saying that they refused to accept any tax increases as part of a larger deal." (now bush) 2. "More debt than any other president before him, and more than all the troubled governments of Europe combined." Romney has made the almost identical claim, that Obama has amassed more debt "as almost all of the other presidents combined." But their math doesn't add up: when Obama took office, the national debt was $10.626 trillion. It has increased to slightly above $15 trillion. (Most of what is said from the podium is lies) 3. Shuttered General Motors plant is "one more broken promise." Ryan described a GM plant that closed down in his hometown, Janesville, Wisconsin, and blamed Obama for breaking his promise to keep the plant open when he visited during his campaign. But Obama never made that promise, and the plant shut down in December 2008, before Obama even took office. (I do not support party politics or the new health care plan) 4. Obama "did exactly nothing" on Bowles-Simpson. Ryan said, "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." In fact, Ryan was instrumental in sabotaging the commission, leading the other House Republicans in voting against the plan. 5. "$716 billion, funneled out of Medicare by President Obama." Ryan's favorite lie is a deliberate distortion of Obamacare's savings from eliminating inefficiencies. Further-more, Ryan's own plan for Medicare includes these savings. Romney has vowed to restore these cuts, which would render the trust fund insolvent 8 years ahead of schedule. 6. "The greatest of all responsibilities is that of the strong to protect the weak." Ryan closed the speech with an invocation of social responsibility, saying, "The truest measure of any society is how it treats those who cannot defend or care for themselves." However, numerous clergy members have condemned Ryan's budget plan as "cruel," & "an immoral disaster" because of its devastating cuts in social programs the poor ande sick rely on. Mean while, Ryan would give ultra-rich individuals and corporations $3 trillion in tax breaks." Would you like to be saddled to this guy who makes up tall tales to excite people. It did not take Paul Ryan long for them to find him out. Politicians make me sick. What will Romney do now with his bumbling VP choice that shows his recklessness? Romney and Ryan both have acted recklessly to repay their obligation to the very rich. The smell of the Bush clan comes right over satellite TV like the predator drones operate by satellite remote control to kill lots of people in foreign countries and soon may be here. Why did little Paul Ryan not tell the wild audience how much George W. increased debt? This seems to be the first time lies of a political convention have ever been questioned. When Fox News fails to spin the facts to protect any Republican then it is surely gross. These lies are not going away, they will haunt these political candidates more every day. While they demanded to sensor Ron Paul's speech, they turned Ryan loose to blunder. There is coming a day very soon when paper money is no more than dirty idol luggage. I get disgusted The Republican convention presented false hope to the middle class working individuals without addressing the homeless problem from the massive foreclosure epidemic by the banks because of the money stream to them and because most of them are well off with no mortgage to pay. The Republican Party is the problem the same as the Democratic party as both parties are operating as one party no matter what spews out of their mouths. My daddy voted Republican in the community almost all Democrats before the Kennedy years except he would swing over and vote for a Democrat like Strom Thurmond when he ran for Senate. After Kennedy most prominent Democrats changed to Republican Party. I could never vote for anyone in any party advocating abortion or Union of same gender. Romney silent on the homeless foreclosure epidemic shows he does not care about poor people. He is in the pocket of big banks. Why should any American be burdened with a mortgage on their home? He is in the pocket of big oil. Why should American people pay $4 a gallon for gasoline? Why should the American people be required to have insurance on their bodies or their car? Because politicians have sold out too heavy lobbyist money. Taking money from lobbyist is taking bribes and these politicians should all be put in jail. Romney never mentioned torture prisons like Guantanamo Bay because the Republicans under Bush set them up and this president has kept them going as he changed into a Bush. America is sick and falling for such lies and false hope presented officially by one and the same party. Romney put his boy up there with a multitude of falsehoods continuing his policy of lying to the American people in commercials even after he has been informed. Romney played the Iranian card while giving a blank check to the Israeli regime forever. No mention at all of the satellite guided Predator Drones killing innocent people everyday coming out of the Cheney gang Bush administration and characteristic of those big banks. Ron Paul supporters were given the cold shoulder and this convention was certainly not theirs. It is time for Ron Paul to pull out of arrogant Republican Party for independence. Four people knocking at their gate with petitions representing 2.5 million workers from Romney's home state whose jobs have been exported to China but with no recognition. Ryan's tall tales saying he once ran a marathon in 2 hours? Let you decide. Amy Goodman, "4 hardy souls from rural Illinois joined tens of thousands of people undeterred by threats of Hurricane Isaac during this week's Republican National Con-vent-ion. They weren't among the almost 2,400 delegates to the convention, though, nor were they from the press corps, said to number 15,000. They weren't part of the massive police force assembled here, more than 3,000 strong, all paid for with $50 million of .U.S. taxpayer money. These four were about to join a much larger group: the more than 2.4 million people in the past decade whose U.S. jobs have been shipped to China."
