If I am Biden, I am worried! Ryan is smarter than Obama, and is now the
smartest man in the room!
@Red CorvetteI disagree. This isn't an election for the
'same old, same old.' Ryan has presented a budget that attempts to
address the $16,000,000,000,000 gorilla in the room. Compare that to our
current VP who actually said "We have to keep spending so we don't go
bankrupt." Ryan is a smart man and will run circles around Joe Biden in a
debate. He's articulate and is not a bomb thrower. This is also going to
force the Democrats to focus on the budget and economy, something they would
rather not do. This is a strong ticket. Not just to win, but to actually make
a difference in this country. I like it.
republican mantra...Vice President Biden is a lifetime
bureaucrat.We need people who are not lifetime bureaucrats.Vice President Biden has no private sector experience.We need
people with experience in the private sector.Unless, of course,
romney picks a lifetime bureaucrat with no experience in the private sector.Perfect... congressmen ryan... a lifetime
bureaucrat... with no experience in the private sector... will be a heartbeat away from the Presidency of the United States of America.
I know a lot of people here will rationalize Romney no matter what he does, but
hitching his wagon to the man who wants to destroy Medicare? I guess he just
wants to lose at this point...
The Thurston Howell \ Eddy Munster ticket!!!
@KJB1I don't mean this in a rude way, but do you read anything
at all on medicare or social security? It's already as good as destroyed
if we don't do something now. You can't honestly believe that we can
keep the status quo and be okay. It's mathematically impossible under
Obama's plan. The Senate hasn't even passed a budget in over 3 years.
Are you really okay with that?
Did anyone forget that Ryan has been criticized by the leaders of his own
church? When Ryan offered up his Medicare gutting "road-map" and
claimed it was guided by his faith in Jesus, the Catholic bishops corrected him
and advised it appeared to be guided by his faith in Ayn Rand. That sounds like
sound-bite fodder to me, and is going to come back to haunt this campaign.
While it is said "Victory goes to the bold," in my humble opinion if
it's Ryan, Romney lost the election today.
Ryan is a great pick --- in Utah. Independents will not support Romney
with Paul Ryan as the veep. I think Romney is terrified of the radical GOP
base staying home in November and feels he needs to pander to the tea party.Undecided voters will overwhelmingly fall to the president. This
selection is Palinesque in that it will energize the Democratic base every bit
as much as it will those on the right. Poll numbers will stay close but it is
now hard to imagine a scenario where Romney can score enough electoral votes to
win. His only hope was that Obama supporters would be lukewarm and not turn out
in large numbers. That hope is now gone. But Romney will win Utah!
Demos. will probably attack Ryan as wanting to eliminate Medicare even though
nothing is further from the truth. Demos. think if they lie enough and repeat
the lie often enough, someone is bound to believe it.Ryan has ideas
to help solve a 16 trillion $$$ deficit. All Obama seems to be able to do is
put more people on food stamps and welfare.
Ah it's the Fox News ticket.Bye bye Latino vote.Bye
bye seniors.Bye bye swing states. Great news for Obama.Mitt caves to the tea party just like McCain.
Romeny had the far right locked down already. What he needed was someone that
would make a person like me give him a second look. All he has done is
reaffirmed he has no interest in moderates or being abel to work with both sides
of congress.The biggest paradox of Ryan is here is a person that who
as a youth benefited greatly from the social security system when his father
died, does not believe that benefit should be available to others. Ryan came
from a well off family, and actually didn't need that benefit. Perhaps
that is what has formed his perception that families don't need that
benefit.... but fails to understand that most families don't come from a
town that is run by their family. He is a good guy, and some of his ideas are
sound. But he doesn't understand poverty or the struggle of those people
any more than Romney. These two are cut from the same financial
cloth. No rags to riches story here.... and no relateability factor to work th
their favor. They will need to put forward just good sound ideas and policy
statements from here on out.
To: KJB1So your saying what your saying because this is what you
were told by the President and his failed Administration!If Paul
Ryan is a man who wants to destroy Medicare answer me this:How is
Paul Ryan's plan destroying Medicare when over the next ten years Medicare
would grow from 530 Billion to 803 billion in spending ten years out? That is
about a 70% increase in that time. All his plan does is slow down the increases
by 3% per year to bring Medicare in line along with the other cuts in other
areas needed to balance our budget!Obama is destroying this economy
with STAGGERING DEBT, POLITICAL PAYOFF's leading to BANKRUPTCIES! 16
Trillion in debt will destroy Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and every
single other aspect of the Federal Government if it is not reigned in now!President Obama has run four years of Trillion dollar deficits! All
borrowed from foreign countries. Do you think they care about Medicare or
anything else? Not a Chance!OBama's legacy is the highest
poverty rate since World War 2. Poorer families, higher homelessness, despair in
men and women in finding jobs! Obama has failed!
Let's just all be grateful it isn't another Sarah palin. i bet Ryan
knows where Russia is!
I can't tell the future. If I could I would never enjoy movies again, and
then what would be the point of the millions I made on penny stocks?I'll start looking for English tutoring jobs in Japan.
