Paul Ryan, Why So Insincere?

Even for a chronic liar like Paul Ryan who recently denied his well-publicized affinity for his lifetime soulmate, Ayn Rand, his most recent transgressions are even more egregious. Take for instance his flip-flopping on the stimulus. After initially denying he had requested stimulus funds for constituents in his congressional district, he finally acknowledged that he indeed sought the money. The documented evidence, actual hand signed letters, was just too overwhelming even for Ryan's most fierce apologists. He should have left well enough alone when his staffers first defended the requests as just part of his job to carry out constituent services, and just owned up to it. But when you just keep making shit up, you have to keep piling on more to cover up the earlier stinking mess.

“After having these letters called to my attention I checked into them, and they were treated as constituent service requests in the same way matters involving Social Security or Veterans Affairs are handled. This is why I didn't recall the letters earlier.”

So now Paul Ryan claims constituents applying for stimulus funds should not have been part of his routine office service. He also implies that access to federal stimulus funds is something he would not provide to his constituents. He simply doesn't agree with it. Sorrry, you'll need to ask a another congressman or move into a different congressional district. Good grief!

But if you're like me, you probably put alot of intrinsic value into a person's handshake and more so into their signature. Below are the signed copies of Ryan's letters requesting stimulus funding.

So, here's the thing. Paul Ryan makes it a point to highlight the word 'Sincerely' with his signature on letters he now claims needed to be brought to his attention to recall their content.

If anything, I'm now convinced his sincerity is just a routine.
