Can’t wait for the so-called “fact-checkers” to trip over themselves to compare the miserable Carter years with the disastrous Obama term. Since every word uttered by Paul Ryan is subject to scrutiny, have at it, folks.
Paul Ryan delivered a scathing criticism of President Barack Obama’s stewardship of the nation’s economy Monday, arguing that even conservative punching bag Jimmy Carter’s presidency was better as Democrats streamed to North Carolina to nominate Obama for a second term.
“The president can say a lot of things and he will,” the Republican vice presidential candidate told more than 2,000 supporters in East Carolina University’s student recreation center, about 230 miles east of the Democratic National Convention site in Charlotte. “But he can’t tell you that you’re better off. Simply put, the Jimmy Carter years look like the good old days compared to where we are right now.”
Let’s see how the Democrats enjoy playing defense during their convention while avoiding Obama’s record. By tomorrow they’ll be wailing about how “unfair” it is.
“He’s run out of ideas,” said Ryan. “So that is why he’s running a campaign based on envy and division, based on frustration and anger. Hope and change has now become attack and blame.”
Before leaving Greenville, Ryan told an overflow crowd of about 700, “After another four years of this, who knows what it’ll look like then. We’re not going to let that happen.”
Democrats, bless their hearts, are now comparing Ryan to Goebbels.
California’s Democratic state party chairman has compared GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan to Joseph Goebbels.
“They lie and they don’t care if people think they lie … Joseph Goebbels — it’s the big lie, you keep repeating it,” John Burton, the state party chairman, said in an interview with two California reporters on Monday.
Burton was criticizing Ryan’s address to the Republican convention when he made the comparison to Hitler’s propagandist.
