Saturday, Sept. 8, your heading of the Letters section cavalierly called a man a liar and followed-up with a letter loaded with unsubstantiated accusations aimed at Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.).
Justice requires setting the record straight.
After contacting General Motors Co. directly, the accurate account is: Barack Obama, campaigning for president in 2008, made the promise that if he were elected the Janesville, Wis., GM plant, which had already downsized, would stay open for 100 years. An empty promise, one among many. The Janesville GM plant (Chevrolet, Cadillac, etc.) closed its doors two weeks after Obama was inaugurated and is still closed. This was accurately reported by Congressman Ryan.
It must be easy to call a man a liar knowing you never have to face him.
