When Paul Ryan tried to fabricate his marathon running accomplishments, he picked the wrong sport. A real marathon runner, reviewing Ryan’s claim that he ran a marathon under 3 hours, but "could not remember the exact time" decided to check it out. Why? Because any runner that breaks the 3 hour barrier, can remember every minute and second of his time.

The real time -- about 5 hours. Ryan’s excuse for the fabrication -- he’s not good at numbers.

This is the man who wants to slash the budget so much that it will cause the biggest depression in our history. Just what we need, a 66 percent miss number cruncher.
