My facebook page is lighting up with my crazy lib friends all over Paul Ryan on his marathon run time. Can someone help me with an argument. What happened here?

Do what I do. Don't have lib friends.

As for the marathon thing, who cares?

Who gives a smelly Obama about any sports result?

Ryan could out think the Obamadorm even while running a marathon.

The libs are really, really getting desparate.

In his book Obama’s girlfriends were a composite. Fake. Never existed as a human being.

WRT running times ... the older I get, the faster I was.

Ask the crazy libs to explain it to you. I’ll bet they can’t. LOL! It’s just more fun to talk about this than their messiah’s economy.

Of all the things to worry about.

The economy is in the toilet.

Iran is on the brink of nuclear aggression.

Everyone sees that there has to be better leadership in the Oval Office.

And your lib friends are making some kind of deal over trivial nonsense?

He got his time wrong , his brother told him that he is the better runner and has never done a three hour marathon. Source radio talk shows.

I am a runner and either he embellished his time or perhaps he has run a sub 3 hour marathon on his own time (unofficial). I did a half marathon in 1:48 while training in perfect conditions, but my best official time in a race is 1:57. I consider the 1:48 as my personal best. A sub 3 hour marathon is a tough feat but not impossible, especially for a gym rat like Ryan. Has Ryan himself provided an explaination? Again, I am a runner involved in some local groups and have yet to have anyone bring this up as if a big deal.

Marathon time? 300% inflation in ave3rage familes energy costs in the last 4 years, 23 million unemployed, manufacturing sector contracting for the 3rd month in a row Iran on the verge of getting a Nuke bomb and these idots are worried about a MARATHON TIME?

I guess when your candidate is like Obama, totally intellectually and morally bankrupt you have nothing left to offer but diversion and hysteria in the vain hopes it will distract voter attention off of Obama’s 4 year reign of corruption, incompetence and bankruptcy

He messed up trying to remember his marathon time from a race he ran 20 years ago. The libs are saying it means he is a liar. They are trying to Palinize him. Ryan said he hasn’t ran a marathon for 20 years, and only did it once.

Ryan claimed to have run a sub 3-hour marathon, when it was a sub 4-hour time. He claimed he made a mistake. Unemployment is still above 8.2% and the national debt is still over $15 trillion.

Tell your friends to focus on what REALLY matters.

What happened here was that Clint Eastwood caused eleventy hundred million undecided voters to decide to vote for Romney, which made the Democrats desperate to come up with something, anything, to get some of them back.

Hence, there will be many ridiculous "scandals" reported by the MSM in excitedly hushed tones all the way to November.

What is the time he is claiming?

If it is below 3 hours, he is pretty good. If it is below 2 and a half, he is extraordinary.

If it is below 2 hours he is lying.

the longer ago it was, the bigger the fish. No big deal.

But NO ONE is lying about $16 TRILLION in debt.

If your liberal friends think a marathon time is more important than crippling debt, just ignore them.

During the brief time I had a facebook page, a bunch of my old high school acquaintences who had come out as homosexuals in the last 35 years put all kinds of homosexual marriage material on my wall. Removing it would have caused a nasty confrontation.

I simply got off FB. It was no fun at all.

I think Ryan told someone he could (or did) run a marathon in 2.5 hours. He apparantly has never done so though. He has run plenty of marathons, and he could have just lied to everyone about his time, but he didn’t bother, its such a petty issue

Tell your friend its is just the leftist media grasping at any straw they can. So they want to investigate Ryan’s marathon times, but can’t tell us any details of what Obama did from the years of 1979-1988.

Also tell them TODAY we have a new record of Foodstamp participants (46.8 million) and the US Debt will pass $16 Trillion. And they want to argue about Ryan’s marathon times?

Tell them to get a life.

He issued a statement. He said he messed up, and then made fun of himself (as his brother did). At the time of the interview he said he hadn’t ran a marathon for 20 years because of back problems caused by a slipped disc.

I believe that most marathon races have websites with the times posted. You can tell them that you can probably go check the official record, but tell them that Ryan has spent a few million dollars to have the race records sealed.

Lance Armostrong ran a sub three hour marathon, but he was probably on the juice.

Whatever the “issue” is just call it a composite of his runs. What exactly are they hysterical about.

Ask them if they remembered that Kerry claimed to have run the Boston Marathon when he never did. If the answer is no then tell you’ll ignore this one as well.

I guess it wasn't a Fast and Furious marathon after all?

Ryan has a six-pack. So he's in pretty good shape.

Obama brags about his basketball prowess. Yet he can't dunk a basketball. It was in Maranes’s book. That he was the only kid on the basketball team that couldn't dunk.

Obama isn't that great of a golfer for someone that plays all the time.

Obama said he had a numeracy problem (google it). When he said 57 states and 10,000 people killed in a tornado.

When I was in college I was a sprinter and hurdler. We had a bunch of good distance runners but none of them were really world class.

I do remember they finally got to run in a marathon and every single one ran sub 3 hours.

It is not an issue.
Ryan ran a marathon twenty years a go, and when asked about it didn’t give the correct run time.
So what?
So what? Should be your answer.

They are definitely NOT your friends. They are the ENEMY. Don’t you understand that? THE ENEMY!

They are the ones who are trying to turn this country into a socialist state.

Just caught the statement. Looks like he probably clocked just under 4 hours. His time was 4:01, but that was before chip timing so he probably didn’t actually start the race until a few minutes after the gun.

“Unfriend” them and delete their comments.

Some ‘friend’ by vague mutual association posted the fags sucking face in front of a Chick-Fil-A photo on my page.

I bounced his ass off my list and deleted the photo.

[and I do the same with everything real friends ‘share’ from George Takei’s page..I don’t care how funny or cute is it, I maintain a fag-free zone]

YES something like “I now have to work for 6 months to afford what I could buy with 5 months’ pay under George W Bush”. or along that line. Gasoline, utilities, health insurance, food prices, isolated state and local taxes....No raises due to uncertainty by private sector employers.... I am not better off than I was 4 years ago.

Liberals always have lots of free time and little or no responsibility. Conservatives are usually busy and have people who depend on them.

Tell your liberal friends that it must be nice to have nothing to do all day. Ask if they ever had to work for a living. Ask what the last important or useful thing they did was.

That shuts up liberals very quickly.

He “embellished.”

Tom Harkin claimed he flew jets in Viet Nam. Never happened. Ask your friends, do they think five months is three tours of duty for John fing Kerry? Or his commando hat was given him on his way into Cambodia after being sent there by a guy who wasn’t elected yet? Or .... pssh. The list is too long. That was a real whopper by Ryan though. Lying about that was not good. Runners are nuts about that. A speed bump we didn’t need. I don’t know why these guys are always making shit like that up. Under 3 in a marathon is wicked fast...ask any Boston runner how much they think of Rosie Ruiz.
