I'll chime in. Yes, I was not aware of the previous thread, so I am glad that Rick brought the issue up.

I just cannot see CMac deleting the previous thread, I would guess that something else happened. What? Don't ask me but that is my gut feeling.

As for Hawkeye writing that posters to this thread are pathetic, that is his right. But he certainly put his two cents in. Why?

As for Paul Ryan, it doesn't surprise me that he "embellished" certain activities that he may have done, after all, he is a politician. But one has to question his judgment. He has been caught out on lies before, one would think that he learned his lesson.

At least Mark Udall admitted back in 2008 that he was busted for pot in 1972. Honesty is the best policy. If one is under the scrutiny of the public and media, best to be honest and take any hits aimed at you. "I am not a crook", "I didn't inhale", "Victory is ours", etc etc, all came back to bite the butt of the people saying them.

A Public Service Reminder: Paul Ryan is a Con Man

http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/11/19/a-public-service-reminder-paul-ryan-is-a-con-man/

Let's hope the public doesn't forget. Ryan's tall tales about marathon times and climbing are only a symtom of a much more serious issue: His budget and policy "expertise" is a myth.

I wonder if Paul Ryan will run the Boston Marathon next year? Could be a good PR move.

Should be easy for him to qualify.

Glad to see this back....too bad Ryan's bs didn't get more traction.

Don't they have subways in Boston....Ryan's a great candidate to be the next Rosie Ruiz.
