Posted on 08/11/2012 2:32:56 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
* Born and raised in the community of Janesville; Ryan is a fifth-generation Wisconsin native.
* Ryan moonlighted on Capitol Hill as a waiter at the Tortilla Coast restaurant and as a fitness trainer at Washington Sport and Health Club.

* Ryan worked as a marketing consultant for his family's construction business before being elected to Congress. The company -- Ryan Incorporated Central -- began as an earthmoving business created by his great-grandfather in 1884.
* Ryan's hobbies include hunting and fishing. He is a bowhunter and belongs to his hometown's archery association - the Janesville Bowmen.
* For fun, Ryan noodles catfish, catching them barehanded with a fist down their throats.

That does it.
The hits just keep on comin’....I’d like to geet Obammy in some muddy water, sticking his fist into dark holes.
You might try offering him an interstate rest area instead of muddy water.
It's Saturday night...Obama is headed for the room in the WH he has renamed the "Rest Area" or "Man's Country" Room.
He's sticking his fist down something...but it ain't a catfish.
Paul Ryan is a very strong Second Amendment supporter:
Voted YES on prohibiting product misuse lawsuits on gun manufacturers.
Voted YES on prohibiting suing gunmakers & sellers for gun misuse.
Voted YES on decreasing gun waiting period from 3 days to 1.
Voted YES on National cross-state standard for concealed carry.
It’ll probably get pulled just like the Cthulu codpiece pic did but I’d do it all over again.
You think Obama doesn’t stick his fist in dark holes?
He knows his baloney and DC is full of it. Let's start slicing for a Real Change!!
And now *I* want to stick my fist down my throat.
There are some dangerous “rest areas” in this country.
Noodling and Zeppelin.. sounds like the adventurous energetic type. just so the fitness nut side isn’t modeled on MOoochelee’s
When do the attack dogs come after Ryan’s wife? Sooner rather than later I’d guess
I saw those kids on the platform. Wow, what great looking kids, future leaders of our nation.
That said, he's probably still on the golf course right now ...and not at the WH.
And yes...that kind of behaviour is sick beyond belief.
Noodling catfish isn’t that hard, anyway
Obama noodles Barney Frank all the time,
or so Harry Reid says, I heard.
I love it! Ryan noodles. I thought that was an southern thing.
I think when the liberals read this, the loud THUD we hear will be them falling collectively to the floor in a dead faint. :)
I’m with you. I think the Led Zeppelin cinched it, though I have to respect someone who can catch a catfish with his bare hands.

Must have learned it from his Okie inlaws.
I won't hold that against him.
Attention Ben Burch. I hate to spoil your fantasy but this is NOT the same as fisting.
The Left is utterly apoplectic. THEY ARE D O N E and they KNOW it.
We're gettin' ready to take out the Trash...Cheese Head style.
The house in the background looks like a nice, clean, friendly, well kept middle class home ( one that I could identify with).
“One of Ryan’s summer jobs in college was as an Oscar Mayer salesman”
I’ve been doing some opposition research, and we could be in deep doo doo. Did you know that those Oscar Meyer Weinermobiles have quite a felony record ?
Its been ticketed in Arizona (for having a stolen license plate, YUMMY), Chicago (for parking), and Texas ( for speeding), destroyed a house deck in Paul Ryans home state of all places, caused a minor injury to a 7yr. old child, and was picketed by the Outdoor Circle in Hawaii, as it violated its billboard ordinance.
There are still 8 of these 27foot long 11 foot high Weinermobile behemoths riding around the 57 states probably creating more havoc. PETA will soon be making them public enemy #1 much to the relief of SUV’s everywhere.
And does one really want Oh I wish I were an Oscar Meyer weiner as the campaign theme song?
So much for the Romney vetting team.
Should be interesting if we have a Patriots-Green Bay Super Bowl this year?
Geez, I was afraid to find out what a catfish noodler does, LOL.
Somebody convince me that the budget he presented was a ruse, and he really believes in eliminating entire departments and returning to a constitutional government. Otherwise, what are we so excited about? It’s just a couple of RINOs.

Sounds like he will be a good choice, I would like to see him ‘set the example’ and resign his seat so he could say ‘he put the election ahead of his seat etc.
I always figured when People like Edwards, Kerry, Gore, McCain, even Palin, don’t step down they are kind of admitting they aren’t going to win.
Bad as Bob Dole was/is he at least resigned his seat to run.
On the ‘fun’ side I would like to have seen either Jindal or Rubio get the nod so we could see what the Libs would come up with in regards to the Constitutionality of their run.
Don’t forget what the BO ‘machine’ tried to do to McCain because he was born in the CZ despite the fact that his father was stationed there.
It does/did show some stones though, accusing McCain of being illegal while their ‘boy’ had a FN as a father etc...
Like W was a wimp for flying aircraft off carriers, in war, at the age of 19 or so and Clinton was ‘ok’ as a draft dodging coward...
We are definitely in “Bizzarro World”
I didn’t realize that!
I’m with you. The noodling sealed the deal. I’m on board.
Now there's just somethin' real unnatural about that right there. Obama doin' what, where? "eeeeuuuuwwwwwwwwwww"
I believe “noodlin” catfish was invented in Mississippi. It was reported in the journal kept by a member of Hernando DeSoto’s expedition that the Chickasaw indians would tie there breechcloth around their forearm get in the river and feel around the bank and logs and that a catfish would swallow their forearm and clamp his teeth on the breechcloth and they would pull him out.
We saw a PBS documentary on redneck noodlers. They would wade out into a muddy river, wade along the bank, stick their hands in the ledges on the sides of the river, find a big slick fish, hope it was a big old catfish, wrestle it (some of them are HUGE fish), tire it out, pull it out where they could see they hadn’t really been wrestling a big old snake; then they had supper. - Some of them were just addicted to noodling. - One guy had lost some fingers to noodling; stayed scratched and bruised up all the time.

Is this like one of those “Chuck Norris Facts” thread? LOL.
Wonderful picture of Paul Ryan hugging his children! Thank you for posting!
The “research” will be completed by Monday, and the incoming slander/libel stream of filth from the media and anonymous sources, will commence within 7 days.
She knows what’s coming; the only unknown is how bad will it be? She looks like a very strong conservative woman; I’ll bet she handles it just fine.
LOL, if Paul Ryan does this kind of thing, you HAVE to like the guy.
I am thrilled w the Ryan pic.
He is also a Metallica fan.
metal heads unite!
Tortilla Coast doesn’t look so good(windows taped up). Didn’t PR close the place, make everyone lose their health insurance, and kill their spouses?
He listens to Rage? lol...that's pretty funny right there.
That is one good looking family.
