The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
Jesus said to them, My Father is always at his Work to this very day, and I, too, am Working. John 5:17
Celebration time come on! We have one of our own on the ticket which you must give Romney a lot of credit for doing. Paul Ryan is a Tea Party guy who is willing to take on the Turd Rail of politics and tell the truth about Social Security and Medicare. This is Mitt Romney taking the battle straight to the heart of the battle with no fear of the consequences. For someone who has been labeled Wimp Romney for not responding to the vicious attacks by the Chicago Machine he has forced the debate right on the last place they wanted it to be, the economy. The selection of Ryan highlights two weaknesses of the Ocommie campaign, his lack of economic understanding and BoBo Biden.
Last week Obama was having a big problem raising campaign cash so they ordered the media to cook some phony poll numbers to bring the donors back. It was beginning to work with last weeks batch of cooked numbers which were heavily Dem as well as voters rather than likely which gave cover for the Obamamedia to make exaggerated claims of an Obama surge. Of course there is no Tea Party or outrage by Republicans over how they have been treated by the coalition, no its 2008 all over again for PravdABDNC. They will continue to spin this pick as a huge mistake when they all know it was a bold and courageous choice changing the entire direction of this election.
Paul Ryan is an even better pick than Palin in a number of areas, first and foremost is he already understands the Stone Age Press hates him and has faced them numerous times. He knows all of the questions they will be asking and how to respond to them again and again until the American people understand him. The destruction of Medicare is a fraud and he will be able to come forward and explain it was already nearly bankrupt and without changes has no chance of surviving. It is extreme need of repair which is never done thanks to the soap boxing and vilifying done by the protectors of the socialist status quo. Ryans plan which was co-sponsored by Oregon Socialist Ron Wyden turns Medicare over to the state to manage and oversee through block grants. It certainly isnt where it needs to go for complete market forces providing lower costs and better plans but is better than the District of Corruption handling it.
Once he explains it with the proper amount of education for the brainwashed socialists this could become an absolute winner. Ryan is by far the most articulate Conservative in and out of DC for the Tea Party. People know there is something wrong with all this gummit in their lives yet they have no idea how to remove it. The task seems too large but he can break it down to levels the voters can understand and underline it with DeathCare horror stories to remind them why they desperately need a change. If Medicare was not a failed program they would explain how ObamaCare will be just like it only bigger. After all wasnt America supposed to be loving it by now as much as the commiemedia does?
So now we have a very powerful team of a person who knows economics and Paul Ryan who understands the District of Corruption and how to fight it. He knows the Federal budget better than anybody in the town and is basically the Newt Gingrich of our era. He has been moved from the frustration of being under the thumb of Speaker Bonehead and when they are elected will be the second most powerful man in the Country promoting his plan to make the gummit smaller and less obtrusive. While Romney can be focused on the energy production side of the economy Ryan can be taking an axe to waste and graft in the budget. He can eliminate obvious pork like PBS, Obamacare and Green energy subsidies to begin, then later go after the waste in each and every department or elimination of those like Education, Labor and the EPA. With a mandate from the people we could see a complete bulldozing of many of those bureaus whose only goal is destroying American success.
This is shaping up to be a landslide of historic proportions. Even for those of us who could not stand the Romney nomination he not only made a great executive choice he broke tradition and chose before the convention. This shows bold and smart leadership as he went with the most qualified rather than the one who would get the most electoral votes. He didnt pander to a certain minority group or State which was the advice of most political managers. Rather than taking the prudent or political pick he went with the most qualified person in the country to guide us past the Obama Trainwreck. This speaks very well of Romney as someone who is not afraid to surround himself with people who have skills he has or are more charismatic than he is. This decision bodes well for his Presidency and cabinet showing he has the fortitude to surround himself with those who will put America first which is a good sign for most Conservatives last choice. He is Wimp Romney no more.
Pray for America
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
Excellent, essay, Bray!
Worth noting: Catch the local turnout in Manassas, Virginia yesterday as the Romney/Ryan bus caravan rolled through town. The streets were packed with cheering people who turned out in droves to catch a glimpse of of Mitt Romney & Paul Ryan. I suspect we will witness this movitvated turnout throughout the whole weekend and into Tuesday when the bus tour ends.
Citizens in North Carolina, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, & Florida, etc., you have your golden opportunity to show your support, not only to Romney/Ryan, but......so much more importantly....to save our magnificent America from anti-American, Barack Hussein Obama and his “hate America” Democrat Party!!!
Obama has been playing to half-full campaign stops in small venues like high school and college gym and field houses. It’s time for true, loyal, patriotic Americans to come out and stand for your nation, your children, yourselves. Thanks!!!
Quote: "Romney appeals to voters who are dissatisfied with the last four years. Obama appeals to voters who are dissatisfied with America."
Good Morning All and thank you for the thread. Great piece Bray as usual. Can’t tell you how happy I am with the Ryan pick. Shows that Romney who many of us weren’t really excited about may end up being a good choice for Prez. If the Ryan pick is any indication, Romney will surround himself with the best people he can find.
IN 23 YEARS!
I wonder what Fareed Zakaria will have to say about this.
I wonder what Fareed Zakaria will have to say about this.
Paul Ryan was the one actually looking out for the Seniors on Medicare;
Paul Ryan: Hiding Spending Doesn’t Reduce Spending
Ryan “Using Medicare as a piggy bank, it raids a half trillion dollars from retirees health coverage to fund the creation of another open-ended health care entitlement.
The Presidents chief Medicare actuary says up to 20% of Medicare providers may go bankrupt or stop taking Medicare beneficiaries as a result. Millions of seniors who have chosen Medicare Advantage will lose the coverage they now enjoy.
Objections to the policy aside, you cannot use these savings twice to both extend the life of Medicare and to pay for other spending. “
You can tell by the reaction of the left within minutes of Ryan becoming official how scared they are of him at the Veep pick.
This is good news for us.
Just found out Romney/Ryan will be in Mooresville, NC at 10am. I’m only 20 minutes from there, but can’t make it. By the time I get dressed, drive over there in traffic, find a place to park the event will be over. Wish I had had a little more advance notice.
And that’s why Paul Ryan is one of the best choices for Romney, he brings the budget to a reality Democrats can’t face, there are limits to spending;
And the media can’t defend what Democrats have done by ignoring the actual accounting numbers Congress is bounded by.
I thought Stephanie Cutter cancelled on CBS. Maybe not.
Ya gotta be kidding me. McLame and Washerwoman Schults?? Can’t they do better than that? You would think McLame could find something better to do on a Sunday morning.
I believe Cutter was pulled from the Sunday shows and Axelrod was substituted.
Good article today, bray.
The hits on Paul Ryan have already begun, no surprise there, and Freepers are on it.
Can the talk show lineup get any worse? Why Pawlenty? Why McCain?
