Lyin' Ryan, Bragging & BUSTED! Which Lie is Most Pathetic?

Skeptikat 2012/09/12 23:56:54
Marathon Lie - two hours, three hours, four... they're just a bunch of numbers.. so you still trust him with a budget, right?
Mountain Lie - He can see the Colorado Fourteeners from his porch, and that's just like climbing them. Ok, it's statutory climbing, not LEGITIMATE climbing, but it will still knock you up, right?

Paul Ryan's Imaginary Marathon Time

He said he ran a sub three marathon -- a feat for only a fleet-footed few. He lied.

As any marathon runner knows, it's no small thing to run 26.2 miles.
This is true whether you run it in five hours or three. But let's face
it, there is a difference between jogging/walking a marathon and racing
it. His real time -- 4:01 -- is fine, but not at all impressive,
especially for a man.


He claims he "forgot" his time (it was 22 years ago), but I say anyone who runs a marathon NEVER forgets their time.

I
have run two marathons and seven half marathons. My PR (personal
record) in a marathon is 3:48. My PR in a half is 1:45. I could tell you
the seconds. A runner doesn't forget.


Lying about one's times not only devalues oneself, it also devalues
the entire sport. If it were so easy so SAY you ran a 2:50, then why
wouldn't everyone? In fact, only 2 percent of runners run a sub three.
It takes most people years of training to even run sub four. So to lie
about that? Is a big deal.

Paul Ryan as Mountain Climber

Ryan: "My mom was very outdoorsy ... We spent our summers doing
backpacking trips in the (Colorado) back-country, you know, Snowmass
Lake, Capital Peak, spent all our summers doing that ... went all over
White River National Forest, just the whole Elk range. I mean I've
climbed every fourteener in that range and the three around there ... So
I got into climbing fourteeners when I was 12, with my brother, Stan.
My mom got us into that."

Question: "How many fourteeners have you climbed? Or how many times?"

Ryan: "38. I think that's my last count."

Question: "Those are just climbing peaks that are 14,000 feet?"

Ryan:
"I've done it 38 times. ... I've done 38, but I think the number of
unique peaks is something like twenty... no, no it's like thirty or
something like that. I counted it up a year or two ago."

Question: "Most of those in Colorado?"

Ryan:
"All of them are in Colorado. So I think I've climbed like 28 (peaks),
and I've done it 38 times, because I've done a number of them a few
times. So I was, you know, kind of into that stuff."

    He is so filled with himself and his inane blabbering that he easily forgets that not all of those faces out there are fools who would believe his tales of daring do or miss the fact
    that one can't balance a budget without acquiring revenues from some source - either the
    hard pressed middle class workers or those with more incomes than they can find places to spend or use it. By promising to eliminate one of these options, the other becomes the
    choice by default. So, prepare to pay for another round of tax cuts for the very wealthy and
    pony up your share, estimated to be an additional $2,000 per year and elimination of all the Schedule A deductions, child care and earned income deductions.

    As for the personal braggadocio, what else does he have to describe himself? It is a test, to see if anyone remains awake after the babbling is ended.

    Lyin' Ryan tells so many lies that it is hard to pick the best one. He and Romney are not qualified to be pres and vp. They no nothing about foreign affairs and Romney proved this week and in Europe. They actually no nothing about the average american and how we are suffering. God forbid if they win. Please vote for Obama!!!!!

    His lies that republicans would improve things. Now this is serious because if they get in, we will soon be in a recession as more money is transferred from the middle class to the very rich. Now this is something everyone should be concerned with.

    Now everyone knows republicans lie. 4 hours, 3 hours, he probably caught the bus 5 miles into it. lol

    thank you. I think it is funny that his marathon time is now an issue. Such a stupid issue to get caught on.

    I think he claimed a sub 3 hr. which is good but not enough to win. To win a marathon you would need to be below 2:30. It is strange that he would lie about something like that. I mean I can see shaving a few minutes off but over an hour? Shows he has no character.

    He should be a much better LIAR by now. He can't even get that right.

    His willingness to embellish these sort of little things shows that he's not trust worthy enough to be president as all VP candidates should be. It indicates a lack of character on his part as far as I'm concerned. http://www.usnews.com/pubdbim...
