People should not malign the next VP of the U.S.
Besides, that link leads to a biased set of opinions trying to pass for news. Hell..., they even tell you that iin their name, "Democrat Underground" Right there I know that all they are going to be spreading is nothing more than liberal lies and B.S. I prefer to get my biased opinions and down right lies from a right wing organization like fox ;)
Oh crap!!!! Now I've done it..., I've attacked both sides. I get I'll get down voted heavily for this. Thank God I have in excess of 20,000 points ;)
From the few articles I've read through, I wouldn't say this is any different from Obama's "misrepresentation" of various facts and such. The few things that Ryan was actually criticized for seemed more about opinions than actual statistics or facts. The only thing I found to be a legit "lie" or "false fact" was Ryan talking about GM. And even so, how many blunders have EVERYONE IN THE FUCKIN' WORLD made about bailouts and spending when Obama has clearly made terrible decisions on bailouts AS WELL AS Bush.
I think the only real thing to criticize Ryan on is his defense of Romney and Bush. Ryan is a smart guy, but he's too moderate in his views. At once he seemed to have more balls, but I suppose in trying to become a Veep he ended up pandering to the center. It's a shame to see a semi-small government Conservative just become another Big government Conservative.
No matter, he was nothing like Rand Paul, Ron Paul, or Gary Johnson, which have been, for the most their of their political lives, true supporters of small government and liberty.
But this whole internet love for Ryan and "lies" is really just another "hey, don't pay attention to all the bullshit our side does, look at the bullshit on the other side." Sort of like Stalin saying "hey, I'm not Hitler."

CreateDebate is a social debate community built around ideas, discussion and democracy. If this is your first time checking out a debate, here are some quick tips to help get you started:
- Arguments with the highest score are displayed first. Argument replies (both in favor and in opposition) are displayed below the original argument. To follow along, you may find it helpful to show and hide the replies displayed below each argument.
- To vote for an argument, use these icons: You have the power to cast exactly one vote (either up or down) for each argument. Once you vote, the icon will become grayed out and the argument's score will change. Yes, you can change your vote.
- Debate scores, side scores and tag scores are automatically calculated by an algorithm that primarily takes argument scores into account. All scores are updated in real-time. To learn more about the CreateDebate scoring system, check out the FAQ.
- When you are ready to voice your opinion, use the Add Argument button to create an argument. If you would like to address an existing argument, use the Support and Dispute link within that argument to create a new reply.
