Giggle-snort: Clueless libs praise Fox News for exposing Paul Ryan's 'blatant lies'; Update: Sally Kohn weighs in

The Paul Ryan-deranged Left developed a strange new respect for Fox News overnight.

Progressives lavished praise on Fox for publishing a “fact check” of Ryan’s GOP convention speech that called it “an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies.” Naturally the highly retweeted column included too-good-to-check falsehoods like this one:

While Ryan blamed President Obama for the shut down of a GM plant in Janesville, Wisconsin, the plant was actually closed under President George W. Bush.

The plant closed in 2009 while Obama was in office.

What these genius libs failed to note is that the piece was an opinion column written by progressive activist Sally Kohn.

But never mind that. Even Fox knows Ryan’s pants are on fire. It was reported as straight news, right lefties?

Bless their hearts.

Filmmaker Michael Moore got in on the action, retweeting tweets from bathtub boy Keith Olbermann and dull comedian Patton Oswalt.

And the flock of progressive parrots couldn’t wait to spread the word.

One lib tried to rain on the Ryan-bashing parade.

Honesty and reading comprehension? That won’t do. Time to get with the liberal program, doll!

Update:

Sally Kohn weighs in:

Hey, she’s trying. Very trying.

        I tried to watch convention reporting on CBS this morning… no wonder the uninformed are still behind Obama. They are so biased it is unbelievable and obvious to anyone that has a clue to what is going on. People need more than one source.(liberal media). WAKE UP AMERICA! How can you still not see how bad the policies are dragging down this country? Really? Come and see the real Las Vegas. Starting in Oct they are expecting 3,000-4,000 foreclosures a month. 14% unemployment. And yet we will probably be a red state.

    FNC keeps Bob Beckel after he’s used the F word twice on the air. They’ve got Jesse Jackson’s daughter as a contributor. They employ another commentator who said just the other night Ann Romney sounded like a corporate wife. Kucinich shows up on O’Reilly’s program about once a month. The left will just never concede that Fox gives liberal opinion a fair hearing because the left does not believe ANY opinions other than those of the Harvard faculty lounge should be aired.

      • Armando

        You can try to spin things confusing Isuzu with GM, but what about the other lies mentioned in the article:

        Fact: While Ryan tried to pin the downgrade of the United States’ credit rating on spending under President Obama, the credit rating was actually downgraded because Republicans threatened not to raise the debt ceiling

        Fact: Though Ryan insisted that President Obama wants to give all the credit for private sector success to government, that isn’t what the president said. Period. Fact: Though Paul Ryan accused President Obama of taking $716 billion out of Medicare, the fact is that that amount was savings in Medicare reimbursement rates (which, incidentally, save Medicare recipients out-of-pocket costs, too) and Ryan himself embraced these savings in his budget plan.

        • gus

          Your opinion is NOT FACT. The downgrade of our nations credit rating is because we are in debt up to our eyeballs, with little hope of getting out from under that debt, with Libs in charge. You’re realy not very bright are you?

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002109532283 Jillane Kent

          Your narrative stands in direct opposition to S&P’s stated reason, citing the inability or unwillingness for America to control it’s debt. The 716 million is not “saved” through greater management. It is borne of the end to the “doctor fix” that keeps doctor’s from going broke for treating Medicare patients.

          • Armando

            This is the Statement from S&P verbatim:

            Compared with previous projections, our revised base case scenario now assumes that the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, due to expire by the end of 2012, remain in place. We have changed our assumption on this because the majority of Republicans in Congress continue to resist any measure that would raise revenues, a position we believe Congress reinforced by passing the act. Key macroeconomic assumptions in the base case scenario include trend real GDP growth of 3% and consumer price inflation near 2% annually over the decade.

        • MPR1776

          S&P has repeatedly warned the U.S. rating was at risk if Washington did not agree to reduce deficit spending by $4 trillion over 10 years. That doesn’t sound like it has anything to do with raising the debt ceiling….huh, go figure the left got it wrong again.

          From Aug 29, 2012
          The US-based Fitch rating agency could downgrade the AAA US sovereign credit rating, if the country doesn’t review its tax and spending issues by 2013.
          see: http://rt.com/business/news/fitch-us-rating-opinion-808/

          Who you going to blame this one on?

          • Armando

            The tax issues? on the
            majority of Republicans in Congress , as S&P did: ”
            Compared with previous projections, our revised base case scenario now assumes that the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, due to expire by the end of 2012, remain in place.

    What’s really telling about this entire Janesville GM plant mention in the speech is the reaction of the libs. They are ecstatic that the date of the closing not being exactly as stated. They could give a shyte that the people are still laid off, the plant is idle, the vendors that supplied the plant lost contracts and all the local businesses suffered from the shut down….

    and the Obama administration is doing all it can to hamper the auto industry through the EPA regs and no energy policy other than windmills and unicorn farts.

    • driveswift

      So you would rather the administration give a bigger bailout? Or would you rather them give no bailout and close many more plants in addition to the one in Janesville? The private company decided what to do with it’s own money after receiving their loan – which would not have been available from the public sector – and the private sector knows best, right? A managed bankruptcy would have led to MANY more closures, and that plant was slated to close in June 2008.

      • Slapweasel

        No bailout. That was easy. Next?

        • Nomore

          All of you that are in favor of bailout should send them your own checks and quite confiscating my money.

      • douglas59

        I would rather the Obama administration get their boots off the neck of business big and small. If GM had been allowed to go thru a normal chapter 11 proceeding, We (The Taxpayer) would not still be owed 35 billion dollars. Also GM is now facing another bankruptcy because its cars are not selling. Another fail. You want to bail them out again?

  • weRbroke

    It has been quite entertaining over the last four years to watch numerous asshats DEFEND the words of the ONE. Reading comprehension just isn’t what it used to be and everything the Pres says is up to LIBERAL interpretation, in other words, they get to frame the meaning however it needs to be to sell their flaming bag of dogshit.
    Liberals run the education system into the ground, made reading comprehension into reading repeater, attempted to rewrite the definitions on common language and kicked math and formal sciences to the curb so they could promote their beloved SOCIAL SCIENCES and attempt to create the next generation into tools for the D-farm.

    She ran away, she turned tail and fled, like a good little Sir Robin progressive. I have vowed not to watch Fox until they get rid of the liars and vile little creatures they have on. Maybe everyone should.

    I am afraid the liberals are going to have a real good chance to learn to hate Ryan. He is going to be around for a long, long time. My German friend told me that after the wall came down and the East Germans saw how the West Germans were living, 30% of them still voted Communist because they could not figure out how capitalism works. I guess that explains why some of the Americans reflexively vote for the Democrats. They just can’t figure it out.
