  1. Ryan saying he wants to have the debate later is conceding that there is no plan.

  2. and THIS is why the RomneyRyan campaign is "approving" those inane ads like the "Obama is forcing gay marriage onto all of us!' TV spot: they have no plan, and indeed no plan that will benefit The Real American People.


    So they send a message to the heartlands saying "dontcha just hate gays and abortions and liberal things?" and then toothless joe and his band of daughter-wives collectively say "YES!" and throw their support to the men responsible for their financial destitution.

    congrats, GOP base - you vote against your own best financial and health interests all because you're so busy hating on gays and liberals and women and non-Christians.

  3. lol, Paul Ryan gets very testy when reporters question him. He's not used to being asked tough questions.

  4. Don't be fooled they are trying to distract you from the fact that Mitt Romney will not show the America public his tax returns to prove he is not hiding something and that he like President Nixon is a criminal. The anti-gay Christians are well trained in distracting people and confusing them so they can get their agenda into place. It is an old trick but people fall for it because they are distracted and confused. An honest person would answer the question honestly and truthfully.

  5. Interviewer: "So, Mr. Ryan, why should we vote for you?"

    Ryan: "Well, me and Mr. Romney promise to create more jobs, reduce taxes and eliminate the deficit!"

    Interviewer: "WOW! So how do you plan to do this?"


    Interviewer: "Um, Mr. Ryan? I didn't see anything...just great, he's run off again. That's the 3rd time this week he's done that!"

  6. I saw the ABC This Week, and it was staggering.

    But don't believe for a minute that a campaign CAN'T be won, simply by appealing to prejudice. It can; it already has, with Bush II & Karl Rove's anti-gay, multiple State, ballot initiatives.

    This year is racism (don't deny it), Teavangelicals, women controlling their own uterus, and of course, homophobia.

    If we don't win this one, we'll be paying for it for years!!!

  8. I heard that Romney wants to move the governmental seat of the theocracy to Salt Lake City - even though he's been promising the tea party wingnuts that it would move to the Deep South.

    It's all bait and switch, etch-a-sketch, and flip-flop with that guy. Next thing you know we'll find out that Ann's a dude.

  9. Oh! come on. They will just go away. Leave them alone.

  10. Wait a minute, Mitch...you're mean she's not?

    Next you'll tell me that Ann Coulter isn't really a woman either!

    I guess every "Ann" that was created by the "Blonde Republican Stepford Wife Cloning Machine" (tm) was accidentally set at "transsexual".

  11. Paul Ryan never met a lie he didn't wrap his arms around and welcome as his new best friend. Romney has become so vague, he stop casting a shadow.

    And next to the rest of the Republican party, this IS the best they got. Because the Republican party has sold its collective soul to the fundementally insane, the "I No Nuthin Bout Jesus Christ But I Am's a Christian" fascistreligious, and the "I Want The Federal Government So Small It'll Fit In Your Uterus." Look who else was running for the nomination. It was as if a clown call pulled up. Ever sane and moderate Republican is still hoping this will blow over and they can regain some modicum of dignity...or within five years they will be gone too (probably making the Libertarian party a stronger but still weak threat.)

    All that being said, never underestimate the enormous money that created the smoke screen of the Tea Party and the Evangelical movement so they could distract the country enought to keep picking America's pocket and make themselves wealthier and more powerful (wanna know why unemployment is still above eiht percent...ask these guys. It's not the President's fault, it's the doing of these uberwealthy businessmen who are trying to squeeze him out of office.)
    But don't let the guard down against these guys. They have enough money to confuse enough people and win an election (in America, sadly, it's not hard to confuse people anymore.)

  12. Ask him what his marathon time was again.

  13. They for sure have a plan and it's based on cutting taxes for high income earners, increasing taxes on the middle, eliminating deduction that most/ if not all middle income americans take advantage of and scrapping most/if not all spending for programs focused on the poor. It's a plan that only the Koch brothers and their friends could love - that's why you wont hear Romney or Ryan provide details...suicide.

  14. Ryan looks like he a complete liar.

    Posted by: jaragon | Sep 10, 2012 5:16:59 PM

  15. If someone confuses you, then says, "This is what you want!" or "This is the best thing for you!" to try to claim to "explain" what they just said to you, they are 100% of the time swindling you!

    I bet they'll also claim that the only medical care you'll ever need is snake oil and an aspirin!

  16. Pretty Little Liar

  17. Romney and Ryan are not stupid. They both know that to pay for the tax cuts for the super rich they will have to cut middle class tax write offs like interest on home mortages and state and local taxes and if they dare charitable deductions. Americans will get exactly the kind of government they deserve in 2013.

  18. If Romney/Ryan wont reveal their tax plan then use their own playbook and create one and say it often enough that even they will believe it.

  19. Ryan is such weasel and a LIAR of the first degree. He and his GOP obstructionist have been nothing but low-life fascists trying to bring down America.

    It was just recently discovered that Ryan was part of the GOP Gang of 12 who committed treason as their goal from the day Obama was elected was to derail the US economy for their own pathetic UN-AMERICAN selfish interests.


    "There's now proof that on Inauguration Day, a cabal of some of the most loathsome right-wing operatives in the GOP-- Eric Cantor (VA), Kevin McCarthy (CA), Paul Ryan (WI), Pete Sessions (TX), Jeb Hensarling (TX), Pete Hoekstra (MI), Dan Lungren (CA), Jim DeMint (SC), Jon Kyl (AZ), Tom Coburn (OK), John Ensign (NV), Bob Corker (TN), along with Newt Gingrich and Frank Luntz-- met for several hours in the Caucus Room to plot out a plan of obstructionism for the newly elected president and increasing pain for American working families."

    Worth listing in state order, the GOP gang of 12 who committed TREASON:

    AZ Jon Kyl
    CA Dan Lungren
    CA Kevin McCarthy
    MI Pete Hoekstra
    NV John Ensign
    OK Tom Coburn
    SC Jim DeMint
    TN Bob Corker
    TX Pete Sessions
    TX Jeb Hensarling
    VA Eric Cantor
    WI Paul Ryan

    Yup, it includes the WEASEL Paul Ryan!

  20. @Funme: Of course they didn't committ treason which is giving "aid and comfort to the enemy". Your exaggeration does not advance civil discourse in this democracy.

  21. How could anyone vote for Romney / Ryan? or in fact, any Republican candidates? They know nothing about sound economic policy.
