Paul Ryan Destroys Obama
CSAPN ^ | 9--9-09 | Paul Ryan

Posted on 08/10/2012 10:22:22 PM PDT by blasater1960

First a little bit about CBO: I work with them every single day; very good people; great professionals. They do their jobs well. But their job is to score what is placed in front of them. And what has been placed in front of them is a bill that is fill of gimmicks and smoke and mirrors.

Now what do I mean when I say that?

First off, the bill has ten years of tax increases and ten years of Medicare cuts to pay for six years of spending. The true ten year cost when subsidies kick-in? $2.3 trillion.

The bill is full of gimmicks that more than erase the false claim of deficit reduction:

“...He will scare seniors about Medicare etc.....”

The libs are all over it already this morning saying he’d completely do away with those programs, or completely change them from what they are today.

Obama or Biden couldn’t discuss any of this it too far over their head

You are right on the Medicare issue to a point. Where Obama has taken 500M out of Medicare Seniors have not had a chance to see YET how that will affect them. It will take some good campaigning on R&R’s part with lots of Doctors standing up for Repub plan.

I have tears I am so happy about Ryan but also think about how the Dems (like nasty Beckel) just can’t wait to ruin a good, good man.

The game is afoot!

Not this pro-lifer. I cannot stand before God and vote yes for death. Republicans made their choice for presidential nominee. I will not vote for him. Either way, Obama or Romney, death wins, America loses, babies dismembered like our wounded warriors. When you look at our wounded warriors remember what you voted for.

Barack Obama’s campaign is a three-legged stool. The plan is to:

1)Smear Romney.

2)Convince Americans that the Obama economy a)isn’t so bad, and b)will get better.

3)Sell Socialism while demeaning capitalism from the bully pulpit.

Number two is the key, but number 2 cannot be accomplished without number three.

Paul Ryan will absolutely saw leg number three out from under the stool, and the stool will crumble to the ground.

If RYAN will start aggressively talking down to Hussein, then I approve.

Mitt’s kept the mittens on far too long, shades of McCain thus far.

Ru Paul to head the fed! (ya he’s nuts, but on the Fed he is spot on)

I know which Paul you actually mean, but hey! Can you imagine how many people would actually turn to C-Span to watch the Congressional hearings? :-)


On the other hand, Chairman Ron Paul on the way to his first day at the Federal Reserve would be exciting...

This is another McCain-Palin deal where the POTUS candidate is clueless and everybody's hoping the VP candidate will carry the election. Palin was unable to do so - I don't see how Ryan would.

The video was great and Ryan obviously has a grasp of Obama's fiscal and economic insanity but how many people will watch this video and how will the MSM, Obama's Reelection Committee, allow Ryan any airtime for anything except stupid, useless subjects like Bain and Romney's tax returns that heretofore have been the only broadcasted topics of discussion?

My concern as well.

The Presidential candidate should be treating Hussein like a racist imbecile, not letting the VP pick do so for him.

Nothing learned thus far from almost 4 years ago.

Ace McCain was CHOSEN TO LOSE.

Everything the media and GOP-E have done has been to try to repeat 2008.

To: preamble

(From 2011)
Just over a year ago, President Barack Obama singled out Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as a serious-minded Republican who could be a partner in the kind of “adult conversation” the president said he welcomes on entitlement reform.

But when Ryan stepped forward Tuesday with his long-awaited budget plan, an ambitious attempt to slice almost $6 trillion in federal spending and fundamentally alter Medicare and Medicaid, the White House rejected it. Obama brushed off a question about the plan at a brief news conference. And press secretary Jay Carney described it as flawed in approach.

IOW, Obama was lying.

He looked like a petulant, immature, little brat, seething that recess was being delayed while he was forced to look interested, not even comprehending that he was being made to look like the foolish, Kenyan idiot that he is.

Notice the middle finger itching to pop up in the video. You KNOW he was wondering if he could make it look like he was only scratching with that finger.

Yeah, Newt would be a great press secretary, unless Calista insisted on being on the podium beside him.

I have the distinct impression that she wants notareity and spotlight, and Newt, who seems to be somewhat PW, wants to appease her in accomplishing that lofty goal.

I think that she was one of the reasons people were reluctant to support Newt in the primaries.

But left to his own devices, he would make an excellent press secretary.

I wondered the same thing. If choosing Ryan makes it appear that Romney will lose Florida( which is a real possibility now due to the seniors) and if Ryan takes too much heat and the poll numbers tank, I think Romney will replace him.

At 5:27.

“Wolf Blitzer licking his chops right now saying Obama is gonna hammer Ryan’s Budget. Romney/Ryan can say, “Okay, where’s your budget?”

Obama’s budget? You mean the one that he sent to the Senate that did not garner one vote....even all of the Dems voted against it.

A perfect example of “leading from behind”, not to mention malfeasance.

"This is another McCain-Palin deal where the POTUS candidate is clueless and everybody's hoping the VP candidate will carry the election. Palin was unable to do so - I don't see how Ryan would. "

You "could" be right. We will have to see. I am an Engineer not a financial guy, but I do follow that macro economic situation closely. We are at the cliff and heading over full speed. If we dont have this conversation with the American people NOW or if the sheeple MSM soaked electorate wants their freebies, it will be too late either way.

Even IF these guys win and pick up the Senate, there may still be too many RINO's to stop us from meaningful reform. It's now or never...and by never we all know what comes next and that wont be pretty.

I am sure they will Palinize and Bork Paul Ryan. But I cant think of anyone better to make the argument to the American people. Ballot box or Cartridge box. Thats where we are at, IMO.

BTW, I love Palin and wish she were running for POTUS. I loved her in 2008 but the impact of her message, limited to her VP candidate role, was not enough to overcome McCain (and thus Obama). Palin is charismatic and on point. Ryan does not seem to be a dynamic, charismatic personality, but he seems conversant in the details of why we are in the economic disaster we are in and why we are facing a pending economic collapse. It's hard to imagine an accountant type could energize and mobilize more Americas than the charismatic voice in 2008 that resonated with many of us.

Having said all that, I think something may be up, but I'm not sure what it is. Maybe it's a hunch. Or faith in God. But I think something will happen to turn this thing around - I don't believe that America's time is up quite yet. I hope to God Ryan and as many people as possible come to the aid of our country and pull it out of the jaws of the enemy (in this case the enemy within).

I must say, my bitter disappointment with Palin's demur has been somewhat assuaged as I've recently seen Paul Rubio on the horizon. Something's going to have to happen in the meantime to keep America afloat, but with people like Rubio and others on the horizon, America may still have some bright days ahead.

What frustrates me is when Romney misses opportunities for easy points.

Good idea. However the problem is that the masses listen only to sound bites lasting a few seconds — and then forget the message within a day. In my opinion, very short messages need to be hammered several times a day.
