Fact Checking the Republican Convention Speeches

“When Representative Paul D. Ryan fired up the party faithful with his speech Wednesday night at the Republican National Convention, he made several statements that were incorrect, incomplete or incompatible with his own record in Congress.” — New York Times 8/30/12

“GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan took some factual shortcuts during the Republican convention when he attacked President Barack Obama’s policies on Medicare, the economic stimulus and the budget deficit.” — Yahoo Finance 8/30/12

“FACT CHECK: Convention speakers stray from reality”
“FACT CHECK: Making their case at the convention, GOP speakers play loose with reality” — Yahoo Finance 8/30/12

“No one would expect a presidential nominee’s acceptance speech … to march through the nitty-gritty of a budget … But the specifics don’t exist anywhere else and, without them, there’s no telling how [Romney] could increase military spending, cut taxes, restore over $700 billion to Medicare, meet the government’s core obligations — and bring down deficits.” — Associated Press 8/31/12
