He’s way way past being a little odd. Or occasionally mistaken. Paul Ryan is just dishonest. An enemy of the truth. A liar.
RYAN: We can get into this nomenclature. I voted for the Budget Control Act. But the Obama administration proposed $478 billion in defense cuts. We don’t agree with that. Our budget rejected that. And then on top of that is another $500 billion in defense cuts in the sequester.
In the sequester. From the Budget Control Act.
O’DONNELL: Right. A trillion dollars in defense spending, and you voted for it!
RYAN: No, Norah. I voted for the Budget Control Act.
O’DONNELL: That included defense spending!
RYAN: Norah, you’re mistaken.
No, she’s not. The Budget Control Act called for around $500 billion in cuts to defense spending over a decade. Everybody knows this. Who’s he trying to kid?
