The Obama LEFT Goes Nuts Over Paul Ryan
The long knives are out for Republican Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan.
Liar, Liar he is….
Watch this video:
Except….most of the content in the video is untrue.
Here is a point by point refutation.
(1) They begin with video of CNN reporters discussing accusations of Ryan’s “lies.” This is proof that the Obama campaign sent out a lot of angry emails, and nothing else.
(2) Medicare – Sorry, guys, but it is 100 percent true that Obamacare raided $716 Billion from Medicare to pay for itself. It does cut benefits to current seniors. And Paul Ryan’s plan took the president’s Medicare “savings,” and re-routed them back into Medicare to shore up the program. Mitt Romney’s plan would undo those cuts altogether. Obama took those cuts and used them to pay for Obamacare. He has admitted this on camera:
(3) The GM Plant – Part of the factory Ryan mentioned was shut down under Bush, despite the initial GM bailout (which Senator Obama supported). The plant finally fully closed in April of 2009, during Obama’s presidency, as this report clearly states. Obama’s problem is that he showed up and made empty promises to pander for votes. Ryan never said Obama was personally responsible for the plant’s closure, but he accurately stated that it closed down within a year of candidate Obama’s hope-filled speech and remains closed today. Obama goes on and on about “saving” the auto industry and his economic recovery. That boarded-up Janesville plant tells a different story.
The Obama Camp and the organized LEFT are trying to discredit Paul Ryan just like they did to Sarah Palin. The talking points are all over the Lefty blogs and they are flailing trying to find a MEME that sticks – again just like Palin.
I don’t think it will work this time.
Now, is the time for a frank discussion of the issues of the role of government and the direction of America.
