Facts? What Facts?

From the Huff Post  -- Ryan then noted that Obama, while campaigning for president, promised that a GM plant in Wisconsin would not shut down. "That plant didn’t last another year. It is locked up and empty to this day. And that’s how it is in so many towns today, where the recovery that was promised is nowhere in sight," Ryan said.

Except Obama didn't promise that. And the plant closed in December 2008 -- while George W. Bush was president.

It was just one of several striking and demonstrably misleading elements of Ryan's much-anticipated acceptance speech. And it comes just days after Romney pollster Neil Newhouse warned, defending the campaign's demonstrably false ads claiming Obama removed work requirements from welfare, "We're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers.". --

Or by facts.

Ryan went on to declare that while Obama claims to be concerned with preventing extinctions, he, "...did nothing, not one single thing, to save the dinosaurs!"

Now that's a fact we can take to the bank.  (Romney recommends a Swiss bank.)
