|ThinkProgress On Paul Ryan's Floria Speech|
It seems that today's political dialog has become contaminated with pure bullshit. Politicians as well as their blogging advocates no longer even try to hide their dishonesty. Words no longer have meaning. Constructive debate appears to have been overcome with shear delusional lies. Lies, after being debunked, are repeated as if reality wasn't even a factor. This blog is intended to address the nonsense that many of today's politicians and their blogging cohorts try to pass off as real. Comments are welcomed but must stay within the parameters of reality while maintaining an objective of dialog rather than diatribe.
Comments are welcomed and excepted, even if you disagree with the content. It's understood that political conversation, especially when challenged, is going to bring heated debate and there's nothing wrong with that. However, respect is required. Comments that contain childish slurs such as "Repukes", Demoncrats", "Odumbo", etc, will be promptly removed. If your rebuttal can stand on it's own merit, then there's no need for such bull crap

Paul Ryan blames Obama for GM plant that was closed in under the Bush administration. The dishonesty seems to have no bounds. GM closed the Janesville, Wisconsin production facility in 2008. If I'm not mistaken and if Ryan's rewriting of history doesn't trump reality, George W. Bush was president then.

Politico first ran a story indicating the same thing but later updated with the following: "Clarification: This post was updated to reflect the president's intent to express his support for manufacturing success. An earlier version was unclear of the intent". But even after the clarification, The Drudge still runs an outright dishonest posting. Here's the President's speech:
THE PRESIDENT: When all of us share in prosperity, we all do better. (Applause.) That's the choice in this election. That's why I'm running for President -- because I believe we're all in this together. (Applause.) We've got a bunch of examples of the differences, the choice in this election. When the American auto industry was on the brink of collapse, more than 1 million jobs at stake, Governor Romney said, let's "let Detroit go bankrupt." AUDIENCE: Booo -- THE PRESIDENT: I said I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry, and now the American auto industry has come roaring back and GM is number one again. (Applause.) So now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs not just in the auto industry, but in every industry. I don't want those jobs taking root in places like China. I want them taking root in places like Pueblo. (Applause.) Governor Romney brags about his private sector experience, but it was mostly investing in companies, some of which were called "pioneers" of outsourcing. I don't want to be a pioneer of outsourcing. I want to insource. I want to stop giving tax breaks to companies that are shipping jobs overseas; let's give those tax breaks to companies that are investing here in the United States of America, making American products with American workers and selling them around the world. That's why I'm running for a second term. (Applause.)
