MoveOn: Romney Political Suicide
MoveOn.org email | Aug 11, 2012 | Justin Reuben

Posted on 08/11/2012 12:32:54 PM PDT by Bryanw92

Dear MoveOn member,

Breaking news: Mitt Romney just picked tea party hero Paul Ryan as his running mate. And Romney may have just committed political suicide.

Paul Ryan is the author of the most extreme right-wing budget ever proposed in Congress. He wants to dismantle Medicare, privatize Social Security, and cut taxes for millionaires while raising taxes on the middle class.1

Simply put, the policies Paul Ryan stands for are politically toxic.

But here's the thing: Paul Ryan isn't just a extremist—he's young, smart, and charming. The media constantly describe him as looking like "the boy next door." He's the ultimate wolf in sheep's clothing.

The next ten days are crucial to make sure the American people understand the truth about Paul Ryan. We're launching an emergency "Paul Ryan is Wrong For America" campaign, but we need to raise $200,000 this weekend to make it happen.

The left has already called Romney extreme right wing. That is the only thing they know how to do. If the GOP nominated a full blown communist they would still call him an extreme ring wing candidate.

This MoveOn demonic vomit has inspired me to send in my first campaign contribution in gratitude that Paul Ryan was selected. Every donation is useful, particularly since those given in the next few days will be used to measure the approval or disapproval of Ryan’s selection.

It wouldn’t matter who the pick was. They would have trashed him/her anyways.

They are scared sh!tless of Ryan though. Because they know he is a true conservative and not a friggin RINO.

“ODD” that this Socialist astroturf organization (and their listed goals at one time were clearly socialist) got launched with the “Censure and Move On” movement during Clinton’s impeachment.

Anything but to actually debate the issues!

Ryan will clean their clocks on several key questions.

Move On is scared shitless that Ryan can explain something to the American people that Obama simply does not even understand. Ryan earned his college education, somebody else did not do it for him!

Yep, The left are panic stricken.

The sane Dem strategists acknowledge this was the best pick Romney could have made.

The left is mad, because now they’ll have to talk about the economy.

All Ryan has to do is play clips from his 2010 healthcare debate with Obama, to put the lie to current claims.

And California has to raise $80 billion for an emergency high speed rail service from Fresno to Cuckamunga. First things first.

The volume of their freaking out means Ryan was a good pick.

The last thing Obama wants is to discuss the economy.

$200K? This weekend? Romney raised $1M in a few hours after Ryan was named.

Translation: 'We at MoveOn needs to get money from you suckers, to run lies about Mr.Ryan, because we don't WANT TO SPEND OUR money, because Romney picked a great person who'll energize the TEA PARTY to vote for him and using our money to help re-elect the KENYAN MARXIST NUTJOB would be stupid, so please donate your hard earned money to us.'

I have to ask: Shouldn’t the left be happy if Ryan is “political suicide” for the GOP?

They don’t generally give helpful advice.

Besides, it’s too late to change now (McGovern’s Thomas Eagleton VP debacle aside).

They really are terrified. Time to turn on the buzz saw. (Dear MoveOn: Time is a noun prescribing the present hour. Buzz on is a metaphor meaning, we are going to beat your fannies as if they were drums. Beat your fannies is also a metaphor, meaning we are going to run . . .

Never mind. It's useless to try to explain something to thoroughly ignorant people.

The peroxide blonde, Andrea Mitchell has her panties in a wad over the pick as well. They need a fresh face over there not an old crow with a new face lift to give opinions. It's a reason Fox has the ratings and NBC doesn't. She's a known liar having been caught lying about Valerie Plame’s identity.

She's a bitter old jewish liberal.

I love watching liberal's heads explode. The disconnect between Moveon.org claiming, first, that Romney choosing Paul Ryan as his VP is political suicide then begging for 200k to smear Ryan is hilarious. Idiots. I can't wait until November 7th to see some of them start committing Hari kari.

I don’t like the smell because when its MoveOn, panic smells like diahrrea and urine. When it’s MoveOn, everything smells like diahrrea and urine.

But, it is nice to know that all across America, mothers are shouting down in the basement to their 30 year old kids and asking them if they can smell a backed up toilet down there.

He wants to dismantle Medicare, privatize Social Security, and cut taxes for millionaires while raising taxes on the middle class.

1) It is your dream team (Obamacare) that stripped out 1/2 TRILLION $$ from Medicare,

2) NO ONE is proposing tax cuts for the rich - these rates have been in effect since 2003, and

3) it is the RAT Party (Maria something or other, D-WA) that says bring it on -scorched earth policy on allowing taxes to ratchet up if the Repubs do not "compromise" and allow taxes to go up on the RICH.

The left will talk about what ever they want to and the press will let them. Ryan maybe appear to be running as a co-president, but I assure you, he would simply be VP with the same power as Biden, if Romney wins. VP's have as much control over policy as I do.

We have a very weak candidate at the top of the ticket. In fact I think we have been to this dance before.

You are correct. These loonies on the left really get me. They want us to boycott Chick-fil-A because of their stance on traditional marriage. Odd they didn’t boycott Obama when he was for traditional marriage before he was for gay marriage. They get their panties in a wad about water boarding and yawn at partial birth abortion. They get upset about free birth control, all the while ignoring the fact that Medicare now borrrows two dollars for every three spent. They’re out of their minds. Ryan a great choice. But no matter, Obama will still pimp third rate, third world ideas to his moronic sycophants. The guy is nothing but a demagogue and cares nothing about solving our fiscal problems.

“...and McCain’s camp didn’t even like her.”

Uh, who exactly were the members of McCain’s camp that didn’t like her. I clearly remember where those “members” came from...do you?

I am not going to go into it here and now; but, I suggest that we not start rewriting history on those days. Palin saved McCain from a lot of embarrassment and a huge loss in the general election. Many Conservatives donated to McCain’s campaign in her name.

She was lied about, attacked, denigrated by the leftist loons and, yes, some key players in McCain’s own campaign were part of it. They obviously had an agenda...think about what REALLY happened.
