Ryan Admits He Lied About Not Asking for Stimulus Funds

This has building all day but now it's black-and-white: Paul Ryan denied this week that he ever asked for stimulus funds, after voting against the bill.  Now he has corrected the record.  Claims he simply didn't recall writing the letters. "They were treated as constituent service requests in the same way matters involving Social Security or Veterans Affairs are handled,’’ he said in the statement. “This is why I didn’t recall the letters earlier."  And if you believe that, he's got a bridge to nowhere to sell ya.

Someone needs to ask the energy companies named in the letters if they agree with Ryan that "the stimulus did nothing for the economy" and if the money they got (if they did get it) was useless.

What a ticket.... Romney lies constantly despite the fact that there are many videos showing self contradiction. Now Ryan has taken to the same bad behavior..... lying..... lying straight in the camera.... lying to the American people boldly... lying with no remorse.... unbelievable. I keep thinking... is it the nature of these men to lie.... or is it out of desperation that they lie to win at any cost?

I may not have the answer to the fore question, but one thing that is certain is.... a Romney/Ryan win is a Bush/Republican win and a Conservative Tea Party loss..... or is it a Romney/Ryan win is a Conservative Tea Party win... with a Bush/Republican loss... Wow so confusing. One thing that is certain and that's a Romney/Ryan win (with so many lies) is a disaster going foreword.. Whew!
