Skip to comments.Romney and Ryan: America's comeback team
Posted on 08/12/2012 7:12:43 AM PDT by tselatysr
Today is the first day in the rebirth of America. With the exception of maybe Senator Marco Rubio, no other candidate for vice president has the ability to satisfy the base, energize the Tea Party, and appeal to Independents quite like Congressman Paul Ryan.
If the Democrats and the left underestimate Paul Ryan, they do so at their own peril.
Before I get into the meat and potatoes of this article, I will heed a warning to Mitt Romney and the Republican Party. If we allow the left to define Paul Ryan through vicious and unscrupulous attacks, then WE do so at our own peril.
If I was running the Romney Campaign the first thing I would do is immediately create multiple ads in which Paul Ryan is speaking to the camera and explaining the upcoming Medicare attacks. I would get out in front of this right now and not wait to respond to the coming attacks. Handicap the left by getting to the voters first. If anyone in the Romney Campaign happens to read this or has contacts within the campaign please get this to them as soon as possible.
Now that Mitt Romney has shown he can be bold; I would take it to the next level. The Romney Campaign should run an introductory ad in all 57 states. Excuse me, 50 states. Sorry, I couldn't resist that one. The comeback team should introduce themselves to America in a big way. No voiceovers, no fancy music in the background, just the two of them looking at the camera and laying out in specific and clear details the vision they possess for the country. Most pundits or talking heads would ridicule an idea like this. They would say why would the Romney/Ryan ticket be trying to woo voters in the liberal states of Hawaii, Vermont, Oregon, etc?
The reason is because this time it is different. All Americans are suffering regardless of party. When a Democrat, Independent, or Republican loses his job it hurts just the same. More Americans are stuck in poverty than at any other time.
The Obama administration is a cancer. It is eating away at the very fabric of our nation. It is dissolving our rights, our freedoms, and our sovereignty. Unlike a nuclear bomb that would kill us quickly, the Obama Administration is killing us slowly and deliberately. It is a slow and painful death. A death by a thousand little cuts.
When a sitting president in a horrible economic environment is too busy to meet with his jobs council you know that this economic catastrophe was purposely caused. When a sitting president hasn't even signed a budget in over 3 years you know this is intentional. When a sitting president guts welfare and removes the work requirement you know he is following the Cloward and Piven strategy. His goal is to overload the financial system by getting as many people as possible under the government dole. The more people Obama has eating out of his hand, the more control he has over Americans lives.
History has shown that when the iron fists of government comes down on its people there are typically only two outcomes. The people fight back, remove it, and cut it off at the wrist; or they embrace it, accept it, and hold and kiss it.
We need to cut it off at the wrist.
Today Mitt Romney just told the American people that he is serious about fixing the economy. Not with his words, but with his actions. Paul Ryan is a smart, articulate policy guy. He comes from middle class roots and understands the severity of the problems we face as a nation. He will be able to articulate complex financial issues to the electorate in a very simplistic way. He has a knack for talking to you, not over you. He will be able to out debate not only Joe Biden, but any left leaning pundit that dare tries to outsmart him.
The heartbeat of the nation has always been what the elitist's on the left and right disdainfully refer to as fly over country. This is exactly where this election will be won or loss. The left and right coasts are mostly comprised of liberal ideology, Hollywood radicals, and politically correct demagoguery.
We have been programmed by this administration to accept mediocrity in the name of global fairness. We have settled for average when we know we are exceptional. We have been told that our businesses were not built by ourselves but rather by our government. We were told the private sector is doing fine even though unemployment is over 8% for a record 43 straight months.
This horrible experiment with hope and change has been an utter failure. We need to return America back to its greatness. As Reagan used to say we are the shining city on the hill. We are the last beacon for freedom. And we never lead from behind. Obama has emboldened our enemies, abandoned our allies, and bowed down to our adversaries. This President makes Jimmy Carter look competent. That is no easy task.
The Romney/Ryan ticket is a winning combination. They will show the American people what real leadership is. They combine the talent, ability, and desire to make America great once again.
Article shared using the Free Republish tool on Tea Party Tribune.
There was some pretty good advice there on getting out in front of the Dem. attack Ads. I hope the campaign sees that and takes heed.
Above is link to Live Stream of Romney-Ryan rally in in NC.
Fortunately, Ryan is really really good at articulating his message simply and with conviction. That's because he believes in it completely - it's not just words he's been coached to speak.
The Dem machine has no defense against the passionate and positive articulation of freedom- and they know it. Their desperation will drive them to depths of character assassination that will make it look like Sarah Palin was one of their patron saints.
And perhaps that overreach is exactly what we need for the sleepy masses to finally wake up. I hope that TPTB in the campaign just let Ryan be Ryan.
Now I’ve been smiling lately, thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be, something good has begun
Oh prosperity train sounding louder
Glide on the prosperity train
Everyone jump upon the prosperity train
Get your bags together, go bring your good friends too
Cause it’s getting nearer, it soon will be with you
Now come and join the living, it’s not so far from you
And it’s getting nearer, soon it will all be true
Now I’ve been crying lately, thinking about the world as it is
Why must the dems go on hating, why can’t we live in bliss
Cause out on the edge of darkness, there rides a prosperity train
Oh prosperity train take this country, come take me home again
(Taken from the Peace Train Lyrics)
Yeah, right. Whatever.
“If we allow the left to define Paul Ryan through vicious and unscrupulous attacks, then WE do so at our own peril.” Agreed, but at the same time, the Romney campaign and the conservative SuperPacs need to develop and consistently execute a “pull no punches, hard hitting” offensive against Obama to constantly remind the American people of who and what his regime is and has done. There is no shortage of issues and scandals that can be used truthfully. If Romney doesn’t play hard ball politics and expects to win only by showing themselves in front of a flag and repeating the Pledge of Allegiance, we will lose. The Obama campaign, the MSM, and Obamas Superpacs will stop at nothing to destroy Romney/Ryan. But they will also capitalize on Obama’s charm and smoothness to fool the foolish into supporting his false promises and hope and change again. They’ll insulate him from the Chicago style gutter politics to maintain his false image of intelligence and coolness. For example; Obama’s “Choices” ad is full of BS, but it is very effective for the uninformed masses.
Paul Ryan is a favorite with the over 65 groups... He’ll do just fine with seniors.
"Internal Memo Suggests Romney Will Applaud Ryan Budget Plan But Not Embrace It"
The source is www.breitbart.com but when you read the ENTIRE article you find that:
"CNN obtained the memo first, and the relevant part is below"
Oh, really, from CNN, that souring pile of bovine excrement. A source that is so very honest and forthcoming in all they do (pardon me while I barf into my bucket. Better now). Umm, where was I?
Following that link took me to politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com; hummmm, the plot thickens!
This blog is so full of nastiness and falsehoods that I had to stop reading or my head would pop (besides, my bucket is full). I don't know if what I was reading was original or not, but knowing how upright and upstanding the CNN staff are, I won't even quote what is there. Besides, I'm not qualified to deal in such filthiness. I took a short look at what the author also posted and came away badly burned and needing a new display monitor (it melted the case, such a stench!). And then I looked at the comments to his writings, OUCH!
No thanks, if I want to find out about someone, CNN is not the place to go, thank you very very much.
CNN doesn’t have exclusives on the memo. Check any news source and you can read it in total. The point of the Breitbartt article is that Team Romney is already hedging against Ryan’s budget plan, much the same way McCain did with Palin by keeping her conservatism in check. Romney picked Ryan purely for political reasons designed to round up fearful, skeptical, and disillusioned conservatives. Looks like you swallowed the bait. Enjoy the ride to the tuna boat.
