    Last week, I wrote extensively about the risible and embarrassing “fact checks” applied to Paul Ryan’s convention speech regarding his recollection of Barack Obama’s promise to Janesville to keep the plant open for another hundred years, but Phil Kerpen has managed to dig up the video of the event.

    Read my earlier post to refresh your memory of that media failure, and then watch Obama do exactly what Ryan said he did — tell the people at the GM plant in Janesville that his plan would usher in a clean-energy economy that would keep the plant slated for shuttering open for another 100 years:

    Here’s what Ryan said in his speech:

    Sucks.

    He'll still say he never said it, or he'll start talking about those tax-returns again.

    How does any of that change the fact that the plant closed before Barack Obama became President? Candidate Obama said: "I believe that if our government is there to support you"...

    It wasn't... but it wasn't because of anything President Obama did or didn't do. When the plant closed, he was not President.

    Simple a plant doesnt close until the last car rolls off, which in this case was April 2009, after Obama was president, but even better is the plant is on standby, which means it can be reopened. With the "sucess" of GM, why hasnt it?

    Because GM has chosen to succeed in China, rather than Janesville.

    But but but but but but Obama's context!

    Here's what he actually said, "We succeed because of our individual initiative but ... of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together."

    See, he never said ANYTHING about keeping the plant open

    Fuking rethugs. First you want to bitch because PRESIDENT Obama saved the auto industry.

    Then you want to bitch because CANDIDATE Obama wanted the GM plant to stay open another 100 years adn it didn't.

    Make up your fuking minds. Oh and BTW, what did you want Obama to do? Force GM to keep a plant open for production of trucks that were not selling?

    You rethugs understand why people view you as hypocrites?
