But Mr. Ryan has shown hes not shy about firing back at the president, bringing both budget numbers and sharp rhetoric to the fight.
Rather than building bridges, hes poisoning wells, the usually mild-mannered Mr. Ryan said. Exploiting peoples emotions of fear, envy and anxiety is not hope; its not change. Its partisanship. We dont need partisanship. We dont need demagoguery. We need solutions. And we dont need to keep punting to other people to make tough decisions.
Mr. Ryans first go-around with Mr. Obama came even before he became Budget Committee chairman. He was one of the Republicans invited to the White House for the 2010 summit on health care, and in six minutes sliced apart the math behind Democrats plans, arguing they didnt meet the presidents own goals of cost-cutting.
Republicans feel the Ryan pick gives them an edge.
Obama thinks he is smart and in command of the facts. Ryan actually is, said Mike McKenna, a GOP strategist.
In tapping Mr. Ryan, Mr. Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, has turned the election from a referendum on Mr. Obamas economic record into a choice between two dramatically divergent views of the governments spending and taxes.
It also instantly elevates this years election beyond the name-calling and accusations of recent weeks, and gives both sides something substantive to debate.....

Paul Ryan will make Obama go insane. This will be good!!
I like Ryan as the Veep pick because he gets under Obozo’s skin.
I can’t wait till he debates that dumb ass I mean democrate Biden.

Not only does he get under Obozo’s skin, but also it will be so much fun to watch the Ryan-Biden debate. Gaffetastic Joe-the-Dope will implode.

Wow, Mr. Ryan (future Vice President Ryan?) really nailed the Democrats and so-called "liberals" - especially hussein - to the wall with this one. That is exactly what they have all been doing for years. hussein has just elevated it by wedging a mountain of lies underneath it.

(Stop obama now! Stop the hussein - insane agenda!)
Paul Ryan is Obama’s worst feaking nightmare. He is everything that Obama pretends to be but is not. This would include intellect, honesty, love of country and the embrace of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

I am voting for Paul Ryan. Win or lose, I think Paul Ryan is going places and has an edgy, confrontational attitude while slamming the purveyors of buIIshate - Obama and Biden.
Pass the popcorn! Ryan 2012!

I just watched the video on YT (courtesy of FOX News) where Ryan schooled Zero on his healthcare. You could tell Zero was zoned out - he had a faster-than-normal blink rate. He really did not want to hear what Ryan was saying, and he sure didn't want the American public to hear it)!

What Catholic Vote said about Paul Ryan yesterday:
Paul Ryan, Representative from Wisconsin's 1st District
Co-sponsored the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.
Voted to amend the health care law so that no federal funds may be used to pay for any part of any healthcare plan that offers abortion coverage.
Voted for the Abortion Pain Bill and the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act.
Voted to prohibit partial birth abortion.
Voted for a resolution proposing a constitutional amendment that would define marriage as the union between one man and one woman.
Voted against repealing Dont Ask Dont Tell.
Voted for the Religious Liberty Protection Act of 1999.
On the HHS mandate: This is much, much bigger than about contraception. This is about religious freedom, First Amendment rights, and how this progressive philosophy of fungible rights of a living breathing constitution really clashes and collides with these core rights that we built our society and country around.
Voted against the Stem Cell Research Act of 2007, which would have required the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to conduct and support research on embryonic stem cells.
Voted in favor of developing methods to produce stem cells without using human embryos.
Voted in favor for school vouchers in Washington, D.C.

"I am voting for Paul Ryan."
I was considering voting for Johnson, and then voting R down ticket -- New Jersey is going for Zero no matter what -- but I'll crawl to the polls over burning embers to vote for Ryan.

(Our forefathers would be shooting by now.)
I need a yard sign that says:
That would truly reflect my feelings on this ticket. Go Ryan! Drag Romney to the right. You can do it!

Obama is not intellectually equipped to spar with someone who has a command of the English language, is sane and conservative, and has not been bought off or intimidated into submission. Obama is comprised of meaningless words and selfish thoughts - all bolstered by a teleprompter filled with words composed by some other fascist populist

New Jersey is going for Zero no matter what
True, but Monmouth County consistently votes Republican.

Shaping up a battle of sharp contrasts:
Intellectual heavyweights vs celebrity cognitive lightweight and gaffe machine
Individual freedoms vs collectivism
Orientation toward higher aspirations vs pandering to lowest common denominator
United America vs the divisive left

(Chosing Ryan= a choice between two dramatically divergent views of governments spending & taxes)
Ryan exposes Obama for being the “empty suit” that he is.
