Paul Ryan LIED saying President Obama failed to rescue an auto factory in Janesville, Wisconsin. One that Obama vowed to keep open — one that closed in 2008, under President George W. Bush.
“I remember President Obama visiting it when he was first running, saying he’ll keep that plant open,” Ryan said describing the GM factory in Janesville. “One more broken promise.” There’s only one problem. It was already closed under Bush.
Ryan also blamed rising gas prices under Obama for the closing. He championed a complaint in an interview with a local ABC affiliate, suggesting it showed that Obama’s auto rescue was a sham.
“It didn’t help Janesville,” he said. “They shut our plant down. It didn’t help Kenosha. I represent there; they shut down the Chrysler plant.”
Why did Paul Ryan lie? Easy …. How else can they win?
