Skip to comments.Politico's Martin Goes Snide on Ryan: Mr. Wienermobile 'Slinging Cheap Margaritas'
Posted on 08/11/2012 5:47:56 PM PDT by Kaslin
Politico's Jonathan Martin is putting on his "cracker counties" snob act again in attacking Paul Ryan's resume, much like Ryan Lizza of the New Yorker, only meaner.
This was how it started: "Flipping burgers at McDonald’s, steering the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, slinging cheap margaritas, and toning abs and pecs. That’s about the extent of Rep. Paul Ryan’s private sector experience." Again, this from the liberals who weren't in the habit of mocking Barry Obama slinging Bubble Gum ice cream?
Perhaps Martin's suffering from an aggressive rewrite man? He seems more respectful deeper in the article:
While he wasnt exactly a job creator, Ryan has hustled to earn a living over the years, a skill many pols never have to develop.
In high school, the Badger State native worked on a series of entry-level jobs, including a stint on a grill at a local McDonalds. During college, he worked as an Oscar Mayer salesman and got a turn on the Wienermobile. And in his first years in Washington, he paid the rent thanks to a gig at Tortilla Coast, a Capitol Hill watering hole, and a job whipping people into shape at Washington Sport and Health Club.
Someone thought the first sentence of this article was the funniest, but the hilarious passage comes later....as if a person willing to stab Romney in the back anonymously to a reporter would earn the term "loyalist" somehow:
Ryans detractors, speaking anonymously so as not to criticize a potential Romney running mate, point out that the congressman is almost entirely a product of the Washington political universe.
Why wouldn’t we run against Washington with two outsiders?” said one Romney loyalist.
Apparently "loyalist" is someone who won't put his name on a stupid-Romney-pick quote. Just once, a reporter should write, a source was "speaking anonymously because he/she is a cowardly careerist."
Gee, did Paul Ryan work for Anthony Weiner?
So . . . all they have to go on is that he worked his way to where his is by doing the same crappy jobs the rest of us did (or are doing) to get to where he is. I guess libs would hate me for slinging soft-serve at the Dippy Whip when I was 15.
Then Martin’s got the guy with multiple talents:
And so it begins .....
Martin is another fool liberal who chooses to attack the dignity of work.I worked my way through college doing maintainance on heavy construction equipment,wasn’t flashy work but it paid the bills.
He was a salesman for oscar Mayer.
Well, I know what Zig Zigler would say about that.
“The salesman is the backbone of capitalism”.
“Without the salesman, nothing gets sold.”
“Do you think they let just anyone drive
Obama has been driving us for three and a half years
and we see where that has got us.
Oh, as far as slinging Margaritas...
A good bartender makes money for the bar.
A good bartender makes customers HAPPY.
Also, having worked as a grill man at McDs
let me tell you, IT AIN’T ALL THAT EASY!
Still, I suppose being a community organizer
had it’s ups and DOWNS. /S
We all weren’t foreign exchange students who schmoozed our way through two Ivy League schools. Some us actually had to sling hash along the way.
ahem...I BELIEVE PAUL was JACK KEMP’S protege...no one knew more about capitalizm nor a better champion thereof....
Tubby boy Jonathan Martin might want to give Paul Ryan a call about abs-toning...
$2.79 gas in the backdrop sign...those were the good old days. /s
This is hilarious! He didn’t wear a tie, he flipped burgers....look how far down the well they have to go to get a pail of water...lol. What does any of this have to do with being picked as VP on the ticket? WOO-HOO, they are rattled.
If you can keep up on the grill during the rush at McDonald’s (or another fast food restaurant), you’ve got more on the ball than those snide Democrats, I can assure you.
Community Organizer Duties:
Take government dollars
Spread them around
Curry favor for Democrats
produce events to support Democrats
Complain about people who actually work for a living.
It’s a hell of a better resume of past paid employment than Barack Entitled Obama presented. What was his paid private sector job? Slinging ice cream cones? Barry told us he HATES ice cream but the boy-king sure is photographed eating a lot of it.
Romney already has more private sector experience than the previous 50 democrat presidents COMBINED. Obama has none, Clinton has none, LBJ had none, JFK had none....
What Romney lacks is insider knowledge of how congress works, and Ryan has that by the tons.
WOW! Impressive wiener and low gas prices. GO romney/RYAN!
Hey Martin.....near as I can tell, this means that Paul Ryan had FOUR MORE PRIVATE SECTOR JOBS than Barack Obama.
Palin was awful because she was a complete outsider with zero Washington experience and spent time outside politics.
Ryan is awful because he was a complete insider with lots of Washington experience who spent little time outside politics.
Hmmmm... It doesnt matter who they are and what they bring. They will be attacked as inadequate.
WHY DO WE EVEN LISTEN TO THIS CRAP?
XYZ is AWFUL (fill in the blanks with DNC cr*p)
Look, folks, I’m dead serious. Jonathon Martin of Politico is not wrapped too tight!!! I don’t mean he is stupid, just that he is not all there, Watch him on interviews, especially with Chris Matthews on “Hardball”!!!
Matthews is spitting all over the place and Martin is rolling his eyes and ranting like a man possessed by the devil. Matthews is an idiot, but....poor jonathon Martin needs serious meds, IMHO!!! Sad!!! Yep, liberalism is truly a mental sickness!!!
May da Schwartz be witchoo.
I have had a fair variety of jobs in my lifetime.
I worked in offices (various companies).....worked in the order department of the company which made Jockey shorts.....assembled air distribution grills.....sold auto parts & mixed/sold auto paint..... a grocery store check out cashier.....sold & changed tires for a major So Calif tire store......worked nights grinding cylinder heads for the auto racing industry.....worked as a bookkeeper for small businesses.
I did whatever I could to pay the bills.
I now OWN my house....no mortgage.
I OWN my car.
I OWN my truck.
I OWN my 2 horse trailer.
I OWN my 4 horse trailer.
I OWN my 5 registered Arabian horses.
I NEVER did anything illegal.
I NEVER got arrested.
Today, kids will drop out of school & sell drugs just to MAKE MONEY—they don’t care about the legal or moral implications.
I don’t think I am alone in the willingness to do whatever job I could to survive.
BTW——I am female.
