Letter: Paul Ryan's Trustworthiness, Credibility 'Seriously in Question'

Dear Editor:

How can we trust a candidate whose acceptance speech received four Pinocchio Awards from the unbiased fact checker of the Washington Post (cf. Glenn Kessler, Aug. 27, 2012) and who continues to repeat and twist these misleading untruths?  Paul Ryan’s trustworthiness and credibility are seriously in question. Resorting to lies or half-truths, relying on spin, indicates weakness of argument and more profoundly a lack of personal integrity and character.

Ryan’s acceptance speech thus forces all discriminating intelligent voters, particularly the undecided, those not blinded by denial who are still persuadable, to doubt the truth of his every word. If they properly and conscientiously investigate his claims, inevitably they will convince themselves that Ryan’s plans for America serve his plutocratic underwriters, not those of us who believe in equality, democracy, and the common good.

There is a problem at the core of this letter: the words "unbiased", "fact" and "Washington Post" should never be used in the same sentence. So much for truth...
