Obama is making his way through Iowa, lying again, this time about Paul Ryan, telling voters that Rep. Paul Ryan is holding up a farm aid bill ABC, NBC and CBS is all but happy to report this, only CBS Nancy Cordes took the time to tell the truth, that Paul Ryan actually voted in favor of the drought relief package that is currently sitting in the Senate.
Mean while we have Obama in Iowa with farmers whose fields have all dried up, telling these same farmers they should ask Paul Ryan about the stalled plan in Congress.
This tells us that Obama doesn’t even know what is going on in his own White House, heck he is never there long enough to know, this very bill he is telling the farmers in Iowa is stuck in Congress is actually stuck in the Senate.
Obama: Paul Ryan might be around Iowa in the next few days. He is one of the leaders of Congress standing in the way.
On the NBC Nightly News, correspondent Peter Alexander recounted:
The President was also in Iowa targeting Ryan on an issue that is personal to voters in a state hard hit by a punishing drought.
a clip of the President:
So if you happen to see Congressman Ryan, tell him how important this farm bill is to Iowa and our rural communities. We’ve got to put politics aside when it comes to doing the right thing.
The Romney campaign disputed that assertion. They note that Ryan voted in favor of a drought relief package that’s currently languishing in the Senate, but, this is just the start of the Obama campaign’s efforts to paint Ryan as the intellectual leader of an obstructionist Tea Party.
Can I offer you a cup of tea with that lie Obama?
