Mandel + Paul Ryan: Still Lying

* Don't forget to read the editorial about Ohio's "Cartoon Candidate"- Josh Mandel, at

* Huffington Post has quite an interesting collection of Paul Ryan's lies. Here is an example from HuffPost:

...Ryan then noted that Obama, while campaigning for president, promised that a GM plant in Wisconsin would not shut down. "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," Ryan said.

Except Obama didn't promise that. And the plant closed in December 2008 -- while George W. Bush was president. 

It was just one of several striking and demonstrably misleading elements of Ryan's much-anticipated acceptance speech. And it comes just days after Romney pollster Neil Newhouse warned, defending the campaign's demonstrably false ads claiming Obama removed work requirements from welfare, "We're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers."

Obviously, Paul Ryan would rather tell lies than provide facts. With their pollster admitting they'll be lying, why would anyone believe anything that comes from Romney=Ryan, and the campaign? The Romney-Ryan team is more interested in lies, demoralizing and disrespecting women, and getting tax cuts for millionaires, billionaires, and their contributors.  Do you recall what Paul Ryan said about rape?

Raw Story:

Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan says that he personally believes that rape is just another “method of conception” and not an excuse to allow abortions....

That is a horrifying statement to make. When you think of all the women that have been brutally raped, Paul Ryan dismisses their mental and physical scars as nothing.
