In short, Ryan's speech was (as AC/DC would say) "T.N.T."
So much so that the Obama Regime's propagandists had to start lying in overdrive last night.
I had e-mails in my mailbox last night from the greasy David Axelrod:
and Jim "Punch back twice as hard" Messina.
The lying continued by the Regime on Twitter, especially in regards to the shut down GM plant in Janesville, WI that Ryan referenced. Axeldouche and Messina said it shut down under Bush. But as Twitter commenters noted (via Twitchy), Ryan was accurate in telling how the plant closed in 2009.
From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
The Janesville plant stopped production of SUVs in 2008 and was idled in 2009 after it completed production of medium-duty trucks.
Remaining on standby means not much has changed in Janesville. Community leaders say they would be ready if the GM plant reopened, but no one seems to be counting on that.
"I think there are a lot of people that would love to see General Motors come back to this area and provide good quality manufacturing jobs," said Bob Borremans, executive director of the Southwest Wisconsin Workforce Development Board. "If we fit into their future and they come back, people would (welcome) that with great anticipation and open arms.
Here's what The Anointed One said at a 2008 campaign stop at the plant:
This can be America’s future. I know that General Motors received some bad news yesterday, and I know how hard your Governor has fought to keep jobs in this plant. But I also know how much progress you’ve made – how many hybrids and fuel-efficient vehicles you’re churning out. And I believe that if our government is there to support you, and give you the assistance you need to re-tool and make this transition, that this plant will be here for another hundred years. The question is not whether a clean energy economy is in our future, it’s where it will thrive. I want it to thrive right here in the United States of America; right here in Wisconsin; and that’s the future I’ll fight for as your President.
This is all Obama, Axeldouche, Messina and the rest of the Democrats have to run on: lies and distractions, because their record has been one of failure.
Speaking of lies, if you look in Axeldouche's e-mail, he recycled the lie about Obama's mother and her health insurance.
