WARREN, OhioPaul Ryan is headed to a Florida retirement community with his 80 year-old mother on Saturday to make his argument about the need to change Medicare for future generations.
Hell appear at The Villages, the worlds largest retirement community and a conservative stronghold that is a must stop for Republican candidates. In 2008, a massive crowd of between 30,000 and 60,000 seniors came out to a rally Sarah Palin held there. Despite the Republican-leanings its a clear sign the Romney campaign will continue to stay on the offense on Medicare, but with this trip they may be entering the lions den.
Ryans mother, who will accompany him, can help her son connect with the senior citizen audience. She lives part of the year in Lauderdale-By-The Sea and part of the year outside of Janesville, Wisconsin...

That sounds like a great PR move. Go Paul Ryan & Mom.
Pass around the apple-pie. :)
Smart move. Ryan & Mom can defuse the “Ryan will throw grandma under the bus” smears, shore up Senior vote, and rebut Dems Mediscare tactics.
Forget about the fact that Ryan will be bringing the truth. The optics of clean-cut, good-looking Ryan appearing with his mother will make the libs throw up in their mouths.
Mom: Tell me Paul, is it true that the President stole our Medicare money so that he could use it to start up that terrible Obamacare of his?
Paul: it sure is Mom. $716 billion to be exact.
Mom: Did you say billion?
Paul: I sure did.
It’s only fair, what’s-her-puss was in Jax talking about how the $716B has no impact whatsoever.
Somebody had to be drunk to come up with that name.
Or maybe it is what she is continually told to do: Shush Annah!
And doing it this quickly sets the course of the discussion for R/R and the GOP and NOT the Dems. All I can say it is about time the GOP learned to fight back, even if just a little bit.
He'll be bringing so much truth he'll need a convoy of 18 wheelers.
Absolutely. R&R are putting Obama on the defensive. Make him react to THEM.
Will Biden be there to sing the theme song?
Lion's den ? Hardly...
The Villages are filled with flyover country conservatives...many are wealthy
My NE liberal mother lived there for a few years and constantly complaining to me about all the republicans that live there...she finally moved...LOL
I love how most of them use fancy electric golf carts as cars, with roads for them and everything.
It’s over but the crying for Obama et al...
