I detest the man, but he does have a handsome face. Total WASP, of course. I don't know why some would think it surprising that a man in his mid-30s (when this was taken) would be in shape. He's vain as hell and works out every day. Obesity isn't automatic, and I'm hardly a gym rat. Get a dog and walk it a lot, then don't eat crappy food and you'll stay in fine shape.
I'll give in to flesh. He can have my vote.

Honestly I think he's an attractive man, more interesting because he's not traditionally handsome.
It's just unfortunate he's a loathsome POS.
Between Ryan's Ayn Rand fetish, contempt for those without his advantages, and Romney's history (gay-bashing during high school, animal abuse [and no matter what you think of his motivations that dog WAS abused], his convictions being deterimed entirely on what will get him elected (there's no *there* there), they're two peas in a pod.
Congratulations, GOP. You've come up with a straight sociopathic ticket.

Boy's gotta do some running for that lower body. Those legs are skinnier than an anorexic on a purge day.
Out of the pool and the hair still looks perfect, slicked and in place. It looks as if he just snapped it back on. What infomercial did he buy the coiffe from?

OH HOW SOON we forget the press corps yelling "Down in front!" because 2008 Obama boarded the press bus in tight mom-jeans and stood and put his foot on the seat.

Goy Weiner? Isn't that a racist thing to say? Mr. Ehrenstein, what do you say? I'm assuming you were at least born one of the few, the proud, God's chosen people.

His character is so repulsive that his cheese-sucking, fish-boiling, deer-killing, Wisconsin blandness becomes doubly repulsive.

No affect on my loins whatsoever; not even a smidge.

No. Personality matters. And for working out, he doesn't look he has much definition. There's better out there.

Paul Ryan is a handsome man in excellent physical shape and he has a beautiful family. Just because I wouldn't vote for him because of his extreme right wing conservative views doesn't mean that I have to deny his positive physical attributes ,like many of the posters on this site do.

He is not attractive, he looks OK from far, but the close ups show the truth he is not cute. His body is disappointing as well
