Rep. Paul Ryan's not a liar as letter writer William Smith would have us believe ("No denying Ryan's lying," Sept. 5). The facts are that before Barack Obama took office, he did say in a 2008 speech in Janesville, Wis. that with government assistance, the GM plant could remain open for another hundred years. The plant officially closed in April, 2009, after President Obama took office.
Mr. Smith should have checked the facts before trying to throw an honest Mr. Ryan under the bus.
