Mini-Mitt doubles down: Paul Ryan: I Wasn't Blaming Obama For GM Plant Closure

"I never said Obama closed the Janesville plant! Sure, I said Obama, plant, and closed, all in one sentence. but I didn't say he closed it!"

Okay, that's not really a quote, but that's what he's shoveling

Know the really BAD part for the GOP??? Ryan is spouting this stuff on the TODAY SHOW. That means actual swing voters are getting to watch him squirm

And Ryan is supposed to be the BRAINS of your outfit???

Ryan was elected to office because his Ayn Rand fantasies fit into the fictional untruths his gullible constituents wanted to hear.
Now, he's got more media attention being paid to what he actually says, and they are calling him on it.

It's like the press is handing him a shovel and he just keeps digging a bigger hole.

He's correct, he didn't say Obama closed it, he said it closed while Obama was in office after he promised to keep it open. No lie in what he said.

GM announced the Plant closing in June 2008, 4 months after Obama's statement. THe plant closed in Dec 2008. Obama wasn't in office yet. so please explain how "it closed while Obama was in office."

Hmmmm. It's true that Obama was in office - he was a US Senator. That MUST be what Ryan meant. So I guess that makes the statement true. OK then. Not a lie.

Meh, Ryan is a compulsive liar. This isn't anything new, and it isn't even all political related either.

Sarah Palin had a faster marathon time than Paul Ryan? Yep | Off the Bench

No, that is a typical leftist trying to change words to fit their needs...
