Faint Praise For Romney: Speech Avoided Most Of Ryan's Lies

That needling commentary - - but a fair measure of the damage Ryan's acceptance speech falsehoods had done the night before - - showed up in the USA Today fact-checking story about Romney's major address:

TAMPA, Fla. – In a speech heavy on anecdotal history but short on policy details, Mitt Romney avoided major falsehoods in making his case to the American public while accepting the presidential nomination at the Republican National Convention.
Even a key Democratic strategist, Bill Burton, a former press secretary for President Obama, tweeted shortly after the speech ended: "Romney actually avoided almost all of the lies from Ryan's speech." That was a reference to Rep. Paul Ryan's address the night before, which we found to contain a number of false and misleading claims.
