Over the course of his career, Joe Biden has always said exactly what he means, and people know they can count on the Vice President to be straight with them.
You can't say the same about Paul Ryan.
Out on the campaign trail, Ryan has followed Mitt Romney's lead—making a habit of misrepresenting or flat-out denying his unpopular, extreme positions, while distorting President Obama's record. Both Romney and Ryan know that if they're honest with the American people about their proposals and their records, it'll hurt their chances to win the election.
Be sure to check out this post that breaks down Ryan's favorite false attacks. Some examples include (but most certainly are not limited to):
Attacking President Obama for the Medicare savings that actually extend the life of the program.
Blaming President Obama for the closure of an auto manufacturing plant in Wisconsin that happened during the Bush administration.
Accusing President Obama of not taking the recommendations of the debt reduction committee—the same recommendations that Ryan himself voted against.
Calling Obamacare a government "health care takeover."
Telling reporters that he hadn't sought stimulus funds for his district, when in fact he had.
After all this dishonesty, Ryan actually complained earlier this week that people are calling him dishonest. But until he proves otherwise, we will continue to say that water is wet, the sky is blue, and Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney are willing to say anything—even if that means wildly distorting known facts—to win this election.
So before, during, and after tonight's debate, stay on barackobama.com/debate and get the facts to respond to Ryan's distortions. And be sure to show your support for Vice President Biden on Facebook and Twitter, too.
