That's nothing but a Dem talking point. There were no "lies," and that includes the bullshit talking point on the GM plant closure. What Ryan said was absolutely accurate.
I've heard a lot of analysis on the RNC, but even the loons at MSNBC didn't call it "boring."
Yes, unlike the GOP, who only put up Susanna Martinez, Condoleeza Rice, Arthur Davis (who second Obama's nomination in 2008) and Marco Rubio.
There was no bounce at all-
"Despite a week of high-profile speeches and events designed to introduce Americans to the Republican presidential nominee, a new tracking poll from Gallup suggests that Mitt Romney received no bump in the polls as a result of the Republican National Convention.
The survey, which polled voters between August 31 and September 3, showed Romney with 46 percent support, while President Obama earned 47 percent support.
In Gallup's pre-convention tracking poll, conducted from August 24-27, Mr. Obama was at 46 percent support and Romney was at 47 percent. Both results are within the poll's margin of error, which is +/- three percent.
According to the survey, the lack of a bounce is "consistent with Gallup's immediate post-GOP convention reaction poll, showing Americans giving Romney's acceptance speech, and the convention more generally, rather muted ratings."
Moreover, Gallup's seven-day average of presidential preferences shows that Mr. Obama has held steady at 47 percent to Romney's 46 percent every day since August 29."
"PPP's newest Florida poll, conducted completely after the Republican convention, finds no change in the Presidential race there. Barack Obama leads Mitt Romney 48-47, exactly as he did on our last poll of the state five weeks ago."
