I'm more libertarian than anything these days, but I'm also not so retarded to think

Obama/Biden=Romney/Ryan

Like many of the libertarian retards on here

re: Romney picks Paul Ryan for VP


I'm a big fan of Ryan, and I'm torn about this pick. I'd hate to see Ryan wasted on a losing ticket, but he brings a lot of vigor to the Romney campaign.

Biden's future as VP may be in jeopardy.

Wisconsin just went red. Florida just got harder.

Ryan will have trouble defending some elements of his plan, but at least he has a plan. It's a start, and what America needs so much more than that waste in the White House right now.

This. I have my problems with George W. Bush and his presidency but at least he did something in his eight years. He didn't just sit in the White House for 4-8 years like Obama has.

Anyone who has a plan is a lot better than someone who has none.

The argument is Medicare is insolvent already so what are you going to do about that Mr President? We have a plan and you avoid admitting their is a problem.

I am happy that this will start the conversation about what are we going to do with social programs because Obama had offer a budget that got no 1 vote in Congress.

Maybe not.

38% approve in WI, 33% are negative.

Yes, old people are going to love the medicare plan.

I like that entitlements will be a subject of debate but I just don't see Romney/Ryan winning that. It was a bold pick though, and I give him credit for going bold. But there is a big paper trail and it will be one more thing for obama to attack. Of course, maybe romney would prefer his veep be attacked over him.

The one guy in Washington that actually had a plan?


This. 3 + years in office and Obama and the Dems still don't have a budget. If this had been McCain/Pubs there would be a weekly MSM crucifixion related to the issue.

The plan doesn't affect anyone over 55, so I don't see how it will hurt Romney's chances with Seniors too much.

WI is divided, but all the energy and enthusiasm is on the right after the failed recall humiliation. They're not big on Romney, but Ryan's supporters love him.

a) old people aren't real good at math or critical reasoning

The base is going to go ga-ga over this pick. The middle is TBD, its certainly going to be an interesting. Its a big gamble by romney.

Obama was going to Mediscare no matter who Romney picked so why not have the architect of the entitlement reform plan there to rebut it?

ETA: this is a poll from last year but interesting considering it was done around the time Dems were running ads of Paul Ryan literally pushing a grandmother off of a cliff.

quote:

A new Gallup/USA Today poll contains a counterintuitive finding: the age group most receptive to House Budget Chair Paul Ryan‘s plan to deal with the budget – seniors.

The poll finds 48 percent of seniors (those 65 and over) support Ryan’s plan over President Obama‘s plan, while 42 percent back the president. LINK

That’s the highest total among the age groups tested – a 47 percent plurality between the ages of 50 and 64 backed Ryan, and a 45 percent plurality of those between 30-49 backed Ryan. But young voters overwhelmingly sided with Obama by a 23-point margin, 53 to 30 percent.


And a Rasmussen poll from a couple of months ago shows Ryan with a 52/29 favorability rating among seniors.

AT least they delivered what they said they would. How is "hope and change" working out for you? Or, any other slogan that got elected?

You can tell it is going to be a good pick by how silly the libs are acting about it.

The VP debate will be hilarious.

re: Romney picks Paul Ryan for VP


quote:

Obama has added $5 trillion to the national debt, and has nothing to show for it. Do you know how difficult that is to do? Personal debt per citizen is currently about 50 grand, but at least you got a La-Z-Boy recliner and a gas-fired barbecue out of it. Obama has spent America’s future, and left no more trace than if he and his high-school “choom gang” had wheeled a barrow of 5 trillion in large notes behind the gym and used them for rolling paper. Right now, combined total debt in the United States is just shy of $700,000 per family. Add in the so-called “unfunded liabilities” that a normal American business would have to include in its SEC filings but that U.S.-government accounting conveniently absolves itself from, and you’re talking about a debt burden per family of about a million bucks. In other words, look around you: the paved roads, the landscaped shopping mall, the Starbucks and the juice bar and the mountain-bike store . . . There’s nothing holding the joint up.
-- Mark Steyn

Steyn nails it again. Should this election become a referendum on our current path, Romney/Ryan will win. If it gets decided on old tax returns and dogs on cars, we're headed for European-style riots.

More importantly, it would show that the mentality that Americans had about government and success for the first two centuries of the founding is gone. I have already convinced myself that Romney will lose this election. Public sentiment is totally against capitalism and business right now.


The horror of Obama winning a second term is not Obama, but the American people.
