    "This year’s Republican campaign may be the most dishonest in history. A couple of weeks ago I listed 10 major falsehoods and gaffes of Republican VP candidate Paul Ryan. He repeated several of them in his Tampa speech, and added a few more. In honest political debate, when a candidate says something that is not true, he is confronted by journalists and the public, and either gives evidence that it is true, or backs off. Ryan continues to insist on repeating known falsehoods, to the extent that even Fox Cable News lamented his dishonesty."Top Ten Repeated Paul Ryan Lies | Informed Comment

    And info on Romney.

    Sorry bro - But I'm not going to let you divert this thread. If you can't comment on the speech then you have nothing to offer.

    Ryan is so right that Romney needs to toot his own horn more, but that just isn't in Romney's DNA. He is a remarkable man who lives his values, but he doesn't have it in him to even mention it, much less brag about it.

    One example recently recounted:

    As Ryan stated, there is story after story after story illustrating Mitt Romney's value system and character, all ignored by the mainstream media and therefore unknown to most of the public.

    For me, it is this value, related by Ryan, that speaks the loudest to me:

    That's a great story and I could not see Obama doing something like that in a million years.

    The difference between Romney and Obama is that what Obama does, he makes sure there is press there to report it and make him look good. Romney doesn't do that. He does his charity in private and does not call attention to it nor speak of it to others. But as story after story after story is now coming out, years after the fact in many cases, it is obvious that this is a man who lives his convictions and there is nothing phony about him.

    Obama supporters and their surrogate media take every opportunity to criticize Romney's wealth and hold it up as a badge of contempt. But there is not a single story in which Romney enriched himself at the expense of somebody else or in which the Romneys wallow in a lavish lifestyle. His critics love to point to the jobs he eliminated when he was fixing an ailing entity or corporation, but they never point out the tenfold more jobs that were created as a result of his efforts.

    Conversely, where is the criticism of the Obamas enriching themselves at the expense of the taxpayer and their lavish lifestyle that we pay for?
