The 5 Biggest Lies in Paul Ryan’s RNC Acceptance Speech





The 5 Biggest Lies in Paul Ryan’s RNC Acceptance Speech

Paul Ryan took the stage in Tampa and peppered his speech with lies, falsehoods distortions and exaggerations. There were many to choose from, but here are the five biggest lies.

1). Ryan accuses Obama of closing down the GM plant.

What Ryan Said, “A lot of guys I went to high school with worked at that GM plant. Right there at that plant, 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. Well, as it turned out, 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.”

The Truth: The GM plant closure was announced in June of 2008, when George W. Bush was president. Barack Obama took office in January 2009.

2). Ryan Claims Taxpayers Got Nothing Out of the Stimulus.

What Ryan Said, ” What did the taxpayers get out of the Obama stimulus? More debt. That money wasn’t just spent and wasted – it was borrowed, spent, and wasted. Maybe the greatest waste of all was time. Here we were, faced with a massive job crisis – so deep that if everyone out of work stood in single file, that unemployment line would stretch the length of the entire American continent. You would think that any president, whatever his party, would make job creation, and nothing else, his first order of economic business.”

1. Lyin' Ryan

I hear Paul considers himself to be a devout Catholic. In regard to the Seventh ("bear no false witness") Commandment, he'll have a whole lot to tell the priest at his next confession.

2. In regards to the seventh commandment...

He'll just beg for forgiveness and just keep on Lying (or bearing false witness), after all the Devil made him do it.
