Paul Ryan’s Vice Presidential Acceptance Speech by The Elephant's Child

Young, brilliant, the Chairman of the House Budget Committee, math whiz.  A very impressive speech from a very important young man. He obviously has the Left in panic mode. The fact-checkers found fault, but it was, unfortunately, their own. They made fools of themselves. This one’s a half hour speech, so you may need to save it for later. Excellent speech, don’t miss it.

“The fact-checkers found fault, but it was, unfortunately, their own.”

Details? This response is typical:

I’d have to say, if what the fact checkers have written about the GM plant in Wisconsin (for example) is true, it doesn’t speak well for Ryan’s veracity:

Fact: While Ryan blamed President Obama for the shut down of a GM plant in Janesville, Wisconsin, the plant was actually closed under President George W. Bush. Ryan actually asked for federal spending to save the plant, while Romney has criticized the auto industry bailout that President Obama ultimately enacted to prevent other plants from closing.

The liberal “fact checkers” are not very good at research, and their job is to present “facts” as liberals prefer them, twisted as needed. Their job is to get “fact checking ” out quickly so the rest of the liberal media can use it. Paul Ryan scares them to death because he is the genuine article, as is Mitt Romney. If you look, you can find many articles who check the “fact checkers.” Did you not know that they are notorious?

Don’t make the assumption as many do, that Fox News is a Republican outlet. It is, as they claim, “fair and balanced.” They have conservatives and liberals on staff, and hang right around the middle. If you didn’t watch the convention, watch the videos when you have time….And don’t miss Condoleeza Rice. The Janesville plant was notified of potential shutdown in 2008. The plant closed in 2009, just as Ryan said, and remains on “standby” status — if things change and there is big demand for cars again.

Obama, I think, has two movies running in his head. One is his own story as he prefers to see it, the other is the story he wants to tell the people. Neither is accurate.
