Paul Ryan Booed, Called 'Liar' at the AARP Convention: VIDEO


AARP convention attendees booed Paul Ryan today, Think Progress reports:

The GOP vice presidential candidate attacked Obamacare for taking $716 billion out of Medicare — the very same cuts he included in his budget — and made the case for transforming seniors’ health care from a guaranteed benefit into a premium support “voucher” program. The address didn’t go over well. One man called Ryan a “liar” and the audience repeatedly booed his critique of President Obama and health reform.

  3. Sorry, Paul, they aren't as stupid as your Tea Party audience. Better stick with stupid audiences for approval of your stupid ideas.

  4. OMG Mitt and Paul's speeches are far more funny and entertaining that any of the Obama - Biden speeches! I just so love them and owe them a lot for being a good time pass for us before the election. LOL They are the biggest jokes in years. Hell no soap operas could beat them but sadly they'll be beaten up by the Democrats in the Election. No more fun after that! Only serious business. :(

  5. Look, I'm thrilled that they're not going to vote for him... but being right is no excuse for rudeness or disrespect. So because you're an old fart... it's OK to be an @sshole?

  6. He's lying directly to their faces but THEY'RE the ones being disrespectful?! Uh uh.

  7. "I had a feeling there would be mixed reactions." There's nothing mixed about that reaction. LOL.

  8. KACCompany, purposefully deceiving others is not very respectable, and he deserved to be called out on it. Perhaps he should have gone a different route than trying to insult their intelligence.

  9. Miss Manners points out that booing at the opera is an old and established tradition, and no offence against etiquette or manners. Surely the same rules apply to political campaigning, especially given how much more is at stake.

  10. Eddie Munster, a.k.a. Paul LyAyn, was loving the booing. He'll probably go home, put the boos on a loop, and make his wife service him while he listens to it. Typical Rethug.

  11. @KACCOMPANY: They're "old farts" by your words, what's your excuse?

  12. The booing at the AARP Convention was good to hear because the polls are showing that a majority of Seniors support Romney/Ryan. Mabye that will change by election day.

  13. @Andrew: The booing at the AARP Convention didn't surprise me, as it has a reputation of being liberal. Seniors supporting Romney makes as much sense to me as LGBT people supporting them.

  14. Somebody who is going to take away people's access to medical care deserves to be booed. Speakers who lie to an audience should be booed.

  15. Senator Smirky McSmugface would look even better dodging rotten tomatoes and cabbage thrown his way.

  16. Ha,ha, the seniors know a grinning little sh*t when they see one!

    It is frightening that this guy is considered an intellectual in Congress. He strikes me as having all the intellectual depth of a college sophomore at a second rate Catholic college. (No offense, no on second thought, go ahead and take offense, if so inclined.)

    He's trying to make a government insurance program that they paid into sound like a welfare hand out at the expense of younger citizens. It is not true and they know it.

  17. It is sad that most seniors are not aware enough to recognize the anti-senior positions of the repub party. At least, the AARP crowd is smart enough (but my own parents aren't----too much Faux News).

    Good for them for booing this liar and fool!

  18. @ I COULD GO ON, BUT I WON'T -- exactly, that's the scariest thing is the Republicans are so proud of him for being 'intellectual'.... he's actually their best and brightest?!!!

    Granted, compared to Jan "beheadings in the desert", Sarah "I can't name a book or magazine" Palin, Todd "legitimate rape" Akin, or Rick "I can't name things" Perry, he's like f***ing Einstein.

  19. He's lucky they didn't throw their panties at him and started to chase him down the road with their scooters!! I love me some feisty seniors.

  20. @ I could go on....:

    Ha ha ha , I so agree with you ;
    "a grinning little $hit...."
    And a smug one too !

  21. He will go home and watch this clip to get off. Sociopaths love feeling smarter even when they are lying to themselves to get to that feeling.

    His word?
    No we will not take the word of a pathological self serving elitist. Thanks.

  22. Social Security would not be in the shape it is if the Federal Government would pay back plus interest what they stole from it.

  23. What a smug little a-hole. I hope seniors get their ID cards and VOTE, so that these dangerous men don't take the White House.

  24. I hate him so so so so so much. I wish a train would hit him at full speed

  25. Romney should have Ryan quite as VP candidate and name Pawlenty as VP candidate who is a honest, credible man.
