Up is down…and other Paul Ryan truisms.

FactCheck.org : Ryan’s VP Spin.

If you open the link, you will find a list of claims made by Paul Ryan during his RNC acceptance speech last night.  Each claim is easily refuted by factcheck.org, or for that matter, you and I with a little research.

Had this occurred in the 1960’s, the “elite, liberal media” would have had a field day.  This would have been front page news and a disastrous embarrassment for the Republican party. How could a vice presidential candidate, on prime time television, tell so many bald-faced, easily refutable lies?  Because our mainstream, “elite, liberal media” has stopped caring about facts.  We as an electorate have stopped caring about facts.  Sound bites that make us feel good are the order of the day…truth be damned!

I’m still a little stunned that Ryan had the huevos to lie this boldly.  He correctly calculated, that the hue and cry would be muted and his base would rally around these falsehoods….”build the lie and they will come” seems to be the mantra.

If anyone at the DNC comes even close to doing this, I will express the same level of outrage.  I guess I’m naive to think that the a potential leader would not play so fast and loose with what he knows to be a lie, but then again, “Honey Boo Boo” is a ratings hit on television right now.  Enough said.
