On August 22, 2012, Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI), then the Republican candidate for Vice President, implied to talk show host Hugh Hewitt that he ran “marathons” and that his best time was an exceptional “two hour and fifty-something.”
An occasional exaggeration of our accomplishments is a human frailty and most often harmless. We have all done it at one time or another.
……….This fleeing suspect, wearing camouflage gear, a bulletproof vest and armed with four guns, has since disappeared from media coverage. Who was this person and how did he know what “it” was when he protested that “I didn’t do it”?
Perhaps most astonishingly, this suspect arrested in the woods was named in an Associated Press report as 24-year-old Ryan Lanza. The original report has long since vanished of course, but you can see it referenced here. This was despite the fact that Ryan had already been named as the deceased suspect inside the school, lying next to two handguns.
Ryan Lanza was actually at work in Hoboken, New Jersey, that morning when his name and photo began circulating in the media. And so, for most of Friday, the ‘lone shooter’ was erroneously reported as “Ryan Lanza, confirmed dead.”
Now I’ve been watching this news for most of the day. Remarkably, it seems to change every few minutes.
First, we had the name change. Who exactly did the shooting? Ryan? Adam? Someone else?
Then, we hear that someone in camo garb or something was apprehended in the woods. When I first heard this, I assumed it was the brother and that was why there was confusion about the name.
But turns out that the brother was actually at work – and was not in the woods. So who was in the woods?
When it came to opening a new health center in his own congressional district, Republican Paul Ryan—yes, the same one who is denouncing Obamacare around the country—wrote to the Federal department of Health and Human Servicesbegging for bucks.
While GOP vice-presidential hopeful Ryan today savages Obamacare as “irresponsible,” an editorial in the Nov. 1 The Nation magazine reports that on Dec. 10, 2010 Congressman Ryan wrote HHS “to recommend a grant application for the Kenosha Community Health Center Inc. to develop a new facility in Racine, Wis., an area within Ryan’s district.”

It took a while for the unspoken truth to be finally spoken, but sooner or later, it always is. Via The Hill:
Paul Ryan argued Monday that a vote for a third-party candidate would likely help President Obama win reelection.
Ryan was asked why voters should not vote for Ron Paul. The Republican vice presidential candidate responded that a vote for Paul, who ran for the 2012 GOP nomination, would effectively split the vote in a way that helps Obama.
