    Once again Paul Ryan does not tell the truth. Paul Ryan would not recognize the truth if it reached up and bit him on the nose. Why am I not surprised.

    Thirty years ago President Carter authorized a mission to rescue 52 Americans held hostage in Iran. Flying low through the desert, the ill-equipped helicopters chocked up with sand and crashed. President Carter was blamed for this unsuccessful, though daring mission.
    Meanwhile, his successor was praised for cutting a back door deal with the captors to give them banned warplane hardware in exchange for the hostages.
    Moreover, yesterday in Ohio Paul Ryan spoke with derision of President Carter -- a distinguished naval officer, a learned southern gentleman, a successful business man, and the beacon of ethics our country turned to after Watergate.
    Mr. Ryan Sir, you have offended us -- those who still remember and appreciate the humble decency President Carter had brought to our government.

    "who has got the best plan going forward?"

    Well let's take a look here.

    Obama: Borrow more from China for another stimulus+raise taxes through the roof for small business AND the rest of us to pay for Obamacare according Judge Roberts of the Supreme court + spend like a drunken sailor.

    Romney: Cut taxes for small business so they can hire and expand again + drill , pump and explore for more energy including building the Key Stone Pipeline and the 20000 jobs that go with it + repeal the job-killing Obamacare and replace it with a common sense plan for actually reforming health care and lowering costs such as Tort Reform and Health Savings accounts.

    I think I will take the plan from the guy that actually has experience in business and not the green horn academic that caused our credit downgrade.

    "He's inexperienced since he's NEVER worked a REAL job in the private sector per Mitt Romney."

    It is kind of funny how that cuts both ways. That argument can no longer be used against Obama - that he is only a community organizer and professor - seeing how Ryan, deemed being worthy of the office that is one breath away from the oval office is deemed worth.

    The really hard thing is I like Ryan and Romney, personally. I just don't like liars... and there lies the big problem. When you have to grossly "exaggerate" the truth to make a point, you probably don't have a point to start with.

    @counter intelligence

    ryan speaks the truth?

    Anyone who has run a marathon knows exactly how she performed.

    To overstate his performance by 1 hour and 5 minutes, proves he is incapable of telling the truth without an asterisk qualifying his meme.

    Ryan speaks the truth. Ok?

    So this claim is based on what? Job creation? Inflation? Market values? Home Prices? What. How is Ryan backing this statement up? What metric is he using......

    I know... it has to be so, otherwise why would he say it... right? Lets see the numbers.... please.

    OK - let's play along....

    Am I better off?


    Who's to blame for it?

    GW Bush, Dick Cheney, WallStreet Billionaires and the GOP lead Congress and their abismal 10% approval rating.

    What experience does Paul Ryan have?
    He's inexperienced since he's NEVER worked a REAL job in the private sector
    per Mitt Romney.

    No thank you!

    Ryan speaks the truth (so Stephanie Cutter and the syncopate media and fact checker tools will now call him a liar)
