Have we really reached the point where Paul Ryan can just lie and it's ok?

If anyone wondered if Romney aide Neil Newhouse was just joking around when he stated

We're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers

Received a thunderous response from Romney's VP pick Paul Ryan last night when he was not only a bearer of false witness, but showed as much concern for Proverbs 6:16-19 as the backlash his budget received from the Catholic Bishops.

I'm not going to go falsehood by falsehood, mistruth by mistruth or admonish Mr. Ryan for his lying tongue or the discord it sows among his brothers. However, I would hope and pray that a man who claims to be of moral convictions would have the decency to stand up and say "I disagree with the President and this is what I would do different."
Do you loathe President Obama so much that you have decided to damn the truth?

I could go on and on, and I doubt that it would matter. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have such little faith in the intelligence of everyday Americans that all the pants on fire from Politifact, four pinochhios from the Washington Post or a sermon on the mount would bring an honest discourse from these men obsessed with power and the need to anchor the American people to their brand.

The Good Lord hates a coward and those who see what these callous men of want and need are about must stand up against them. We must show no fear, we must smile in the face of the enemy of truth and decency. I hope the thirty pieces of silver from all the special interests Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan could find was worth it.
