Colbert and Stewart on Paul Ryan lies

On Wednesday, Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, gave his convention speech. And it was panned for having mutiple whoppers. Even Fox News called it deceiving. He told lies on the GM plant closing by blaming it on Obama when it happened in 2008 before Obama was elected, the cutting of 700 billion dollars from Medicare, etc.
Of course this is par for the course from Republicans. Why let facts get in the way. Just recently, Ryan told a small fib about his marathon running time. Small lies. But what happens when one tells big lies. Now where are those weapons of mass destruction?

So what do my favorite satirists, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart of the Daily Show have to say about this? First, up it's Jon Stewart and then Stephen Colbert.
