Paul Ryan's Marathon: Everyone Else Remembers His or Her Time

There are 21 comments on the www.newyorker.com story from Sep 4, 2012, titled Paul Ryan's Marathon: Everyone Else Remembers His or Her Time. In it, www.newyorker.com reports that:

Robert Gauthier recalls racing to the end of Grandma’s Marathon, in Duluth, Minnesota, on a hot day in June of 1990. “I finished strong with a sprint,” he said. I had called him out of the blue, and asked what his time was in that race. I knew what it was—4:01:24—but wanted to hear what he’d say. “It would have been four-hour-ish,” he said. “I had already gotten old, fat, and slow.”

Now, what about Joe Biden's plagiarism?

Even Barack Obama plagiarized MA Governor, Deval Patrick!

Now, what about Barack Obama's -self quote- "BONEHEAD" land deal with convicted felon, Tony Rezko?

Now, what about Barack Obama's admitted drug dealing and smoking (his 'chum' friends) in his own book?

How many marathons has Paul Ryan run?

Could he possibly mixed up one race with another race?

Did he correct himself?

Is it permitted to allow a candidate a mistaken statement or is Biased and Slanted 'Mr Bill' a utopian?

NO to OWEbama
NO in NOvember
NO to DEpendence on FOREIGN ENERGY
NO to "you didn't build that"

YES, to new CAPABLE, PROVEN LEADERSHIP and
YES, to a CIVILIZED Campaign!

Isn't it interesting how many people are vetting Ryan on his marathon time, but missed Obama's literary brochure attributing him "born in Kenya" -- that ran for 16 years?

(Before it's suggested, no I'm not a 'birther'. Obama was born in Hawaii. I'm just noting how SOME 20 year old records got instant and overblown media attention, and others didn't -- and still don't.)

Nn. We have had trickle-down taxes, from GW Bush, welfare boy.

They do nothing to improve US employment; but US trickle down has done wonders for 3rd world workers, with exported US jobs.

But your billshyt just doesn't fly -- just because you says it does.
