Man! Jonathan Chait brings down the HAMMER on two-faced, lying, walking human fraud Paul Ryan, right here. Excerpts:
...Ryan’s Tampa speech, while pretty dishonest, was not especially so by Ryan’s standards. Here you can see why Ryan must view the sudden attack of the truth squad so bewilderingly. Ryan has been saying things like this, and worse, all along. The bit where he sadly shakes his head and blames President Obama for the failure of the Bowles-Simpson deficit commission that Ryan killed himself has been a staple of the Ryan shtick for two years. Reporters usually bat their eyes and coo sympathetically. Now it has become evidence of his duplicity.
The thing about Ryan is that he has always resided in a counter-factual universe. He is a product of the hermetically sealed right-wing subculture. Many of the facts taken for granted by mainstream economists have never penetrated his brain. Ryan burst onto the national scene with a dense, fact-laden attack on the financing of Obama’s health-care bill that was essentially a series of hallucinations, pseudo-facts cooked up and recirculated by conservative apparatchiks who didn't know what they were talking about or didn’t care. His big-think speeches reflect the influence of fact-free conservatives and collapse under scrutiny. [Check the links in Chait's post.]
Yowza! Paul Ryan his built his ENTIRE CAREER on lies, folks. He's been doing this all along. People are just beginning to see that. It's why he's the perfect match for Willard the Sociopath.
And that's why, armed with the truth, we're gonna strip the bark off these two.
