John Hayward is dealing with the Paul Ryan is a liar meme being propagated
by the Obama administration and their willing accomplices in the media:
... both of the key factual points made by Paul Ryan are true: Obama
promised the plant would remain PaulRyanopen if he were placed in charge of
the government, but it didn’t last a year beyond the beginning of his
Administration. If you want to be extremely rigid in your analysis of Ryan
’s remarks, you could say that he was slightly off about the elapsed time
between Obama makingthe promise to keep the Janesville plant open, and the
precise day upon which it ceased operations: it was 1 year, 2 months, and 10
days, so it lasted slightly over a year, but Ryan said it “didn’t last
another year.” If you run around and bellow that this is an example of
Paul Ryan “lying,” normal people will correctly conclude that you are
psychotic.
Hilariously, PolitiFact tries to claim Ryan’s comments about the
Janesville plant were “false” because Obama only said he “believed” the
plant could be kept open by a government run in line with his philosophy…
and even though PolitiFact admits that most people attending the speech took
this as a promise by Obama, one writer at the Detroit News interpreted it
to mean Obama was merely saying he thought the plant should be “viable,”
so that’s “not quite the same thing as pledging to keep the Janesville
plant open.”
In other words, you have to judge Obama’s speech with the very same
benefit of the doubt you refuse to allow Paul Ryan, in order to conclude
that Ryan’s not telling the truth. Every single one of Paul Ryan’s words
matter; none of Obama’s do. That sounds like a good reason to vote for
Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney.
What remains is the inference between Ryan’s factually accurate
statements. He did not claim, or imply, that Obama actively shut down the
plant. He’s faulting Obama for promising to keep it open, and then failing
to deliver on that promise. Could Obama have made good on that promise,
and kept the Janesville plant open?
As a practical matter of fiscal reality, perhaps not – it would be
necessary to dig through all of the business decisions GM made, during the
period before Obama appeared in Janesville to give his campaign speech, and
analyze them carefully to determine if continuing any sort of long-term
production at this particular facility was feasible. But shouldn’t Obama
have done that research, before making a misleading commitment to over-ride
the decisions of GM management?
And let’s not forget that Obama has done plenty of things that defy
fiscal reality, such as ObamaCare. Obama most certainly could have directed
General Motors to keep the Janesville plant open, and provided the
necessary subsidies, if he wanted to. This is the President who claimed the
power to declare whether Congress was in session during particular hours of
the day, and blew through every safety precaution in a mad rush to stuff
money into Solyndra’s coffers.
Furthermore, Obama’s policies make the closing of plants like the one
in Janesville far more likely. He’s a strong supporter of the labor unions
whose wage demands made GM’s business model unsustainable. He’s keeping
American oil production down, and pushing the price of gasoline up. And
just a couple of days ago, the Obama Administration announced plans todouble
the average fuel efficiency standards by 2025. What did the Janesville
plant manufacture? SUVs and light trucks.
The point Paul Ryan directly and clearly made is completely valid: Obama
made a lot of promises he didn’t, or couldn’t, keep. Obama’s “plan”
to keep Medicare and Social Security running for another hundred years is
precisely as logical and valid as his commitment to keep the Janesville auto
plant humming along until 2112. Ryan promised that the Romney
administration will do better. It will be fair enough to judge the Romney-
Ryan Administration during their 2016 re-election campaign by the same
standards Paul Ryan applied to Obama 2008.
Read the whole thing, particularly the updates and use your deductive
reasoning skills to understand who the real liars are.
