Paul Ryan Talks Up Romney During Visit to Racine

Paul Ryan visited Memorial Hall in Racine Wednesday as part of a GOP victory rally tour.

Vice presidential candidate and 1st District congressman Paul Ryan visited Memorial Hall in Racine Wednesday to boost the energy and momentum of local conservatives.

Before he took the stage, big-name Republicans said a few words outlining why they think the country needs Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to win the White House on Nove. 6.

And like at past rallies - including the Rally for Jobs hosted by the Racine Tea Party on Saturday - residents were encouraged to vote early absentee so that on election day, they can help ferry voters to the polls.

Leaders also took a page traditionally in the Democrats' wheelhouse by telling supporters to make phone calls, knock on doors, and talk to everyone they come in contact with about why the Romney-Ryan ticket is the combination America needs.

Glad to see the NYTimes printed this. I actually heard in the morning news today--so lets hope that people hear the truth before the election.

CowDung - Perhaps you should learn to read before you quote Politifact, regarding Lyin' Ryan's ever evolving "Plan" for winding down/ending Medicare... They only rated the phrase “Republicans want to end Medicare” as pants on fire! They did NOT rate the phrase: “Republicans want to end Medicare, as we know it.” "Individually, these claims all earned ratings of either False or Pants on Fire, depending on the wording or context. In addition, in December, we made the claim that "Republicans voted to end Medicare" our 2011 Lie of the Year. However, in discussing the issue this week -- which, we should note, was a Medicare plan that is different from last year's -- lawmakers played fast and loose with our work. Ryan said at one point that "ending the Medicare guarantee … was rated the Lie of the Year of 2011 by the nonpartisan Politifact." That’s not what we said. "Ending the Medicare guarantee" is a different claim than our Lie of the Year. (Indeed, we haven’t yet rated that particular claim.) However, here, too, that’s not what we said. The claim we rated for the Lie of the Year was that Republicans voted to end Medicare -- period -- not end Medicare as we know it." http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2012/mar/29/want-invoke-our-lie-year-get-it-right/

Moammar Wilson: How does “Republicans want to end Medicare” (pants on fire!) differ from what Beth stated? "Republicans' plan is to destroy Medicare..." Beth did not state that 'Republicans would end Medicare as we know it' as you are claiming she did.

That would shoot down the 'GW Bush wrecked the economy' claim, wouldn't it?
