Well, in typical liberal fashion, the liberal lies to call a conservative a liar.
While Ryan tried to pin the downgrade of the United States’ credit rating on spending under President Obama, the credit rating was actually downgraded because Republicans threatened not to raise the debt ceiling
Well, to “prove” this “fact,” she links to Polifact. The Polifact article says:
To put it in simple terms, Standard & Poor’s had two main reasons for the downgrade: First, that the size of the U.S. debt is very large and growing, and second, that politicians seem unable to agree on what steps to take to reduce it. It called the political process “contentious and fitful,” and said the firm was “pessimistic” that the White House and Congress would be able to agree on measures to significantly reduce the debt anytime soon.
Well, that’s pretty simple — good reasons for downgrading the credit rating.
But the truth does not suit Polifact, which wants to blame Republicans. So they make up a “fact”:
The report does not say that the debt ceiling should not have been raised. If anything, there’s an unstated assumption that increasing the debt ceiling was necessary.
Yeah. The report did not say “not A,” so A must be true. The reports didn’t say that 0bama was not born in Kenya, either. Thus, the report implies that 0bama was born in Kenya!
It gets worse:
[An] official with Standard & Poor’s, director Joydeep Mukherji, told POLITICO that the stability of American political institutions were undermined by the fact that “people in the political arena were even talking about a potential default.”
The only people talking about potential default were the liberal liars. There was ZERO potential of our going into default on our debt if the debt ceiling were not raised. There was, and still is, more than enough money coming in to service our debts.
Liberals repeatedly accuse conservatives of doing what liberals themselves are doing. Lying to call Paul Ryan a liar is typical of the leftists.
