I actually tried to watch some of this last night, but couldn’t stomach but so much of Eddie Munster’s lies. I wondered, as I watched it, if the media would call him on it.
I’m very pleased today to see the media almost unanimously lined up to call attention to the lies Ryan was trying to pass off as facts last night. I know the GOP lies, but even I’ve been shocked at how blatantly the Romney campaign has spread these lies and refused to acknowledge them.
And for Paul Ryan to stand on the podium at the GOP Convention and look right in the television cameras and lie should be shocking. What’s shocking is that it isn’t shocking….it’s just the normal GOP way to trying to win.
Lie, Lie and Lie and refuse to acknowledge inconvenient truths and facts. That’s today’s Republican Party and Paul Ryan is the new two-faced poster boy.
You know it’s really bad when even Faux News, normally the mouthpiece of the GOP, starts calling them on their lying….
According to Fox News columnist Sally Kohn, vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan’s speech at the Republican National Convention on Wednesday “was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech.”
“On this measure, while it was Romney who ran the Olympics, Ryan earned the gold,” Kohn wrote.
In a surprising move, Fox News joined CNN, The Huffington Post, the Washington Post’s Wonkblog, and ThinkProgress in publishing a fact-check of the Republican vice presidential nominee’s speech, finding that the speech was full of lies and misleading assertions.
