So did he misspeak or purposefully manipulate the data to make it sound worse?
"He obviously misspoke, but it's still an apples to apples comparison," Ryan spokesman Brendan Buck said. "The point remains: bankruptcies are up dramatically under President Obama compared to the Carter years."
1. of course Carter wasn't president after radical deregulation
of the financial industry that allowed for the insane market of derivatives from sub-prime (and other) mortgages became a driving force in accelerating a housing boom. It is in no way an apples to apples comparison.
3. He either is a lying POS or completely incompetent
Spewing the BS like all Rs about how horrible the stimulus was, while requesting stimulus funds. Initially said he did not, when the actual letters came to light, "gee, I just sign what the shove in my face ..."
Every time they excuse his lies, it is based on his being incompetent.
