Ryan rounding.

From Yahoo News:

Republican Paul Ryan now says he didn’t run a marathon in less than three hours as he claimed in a nationally broadcast interview.
. . . 
Ryan said he should have rounded his marathon time to four hours, not three.

So, it was just a rounding error. Of about twenty-five percent.

I hear he’s using the same math to do his budget.

Update: The actual error, using numbers I found here, is 29.53 percent.
