Last night I posted an update to the Romney/Ryan joint 60 minutes interview with a portion on Medicare that wasnt aired during the show. In case you missed it Ill repost it below:
(Excerpt) Read more at therightscoop.com ...
“In the interview Ryan says (via Fox Nation):
BOB SCHIEFFER: Youre going to have to see youre going to have to do a little selling.
PAUL RYAN: My mom is a Medicare senior in Florida. Our point is we need to preserve their benefits, because government made promises to them that theyve organized their retirements around. In order to make sure we can do that, you must reform it for those of us who are younger. And we think these reforms are good reforms, that have bipartisan origins. They started from the Clinton commission in the late 90s.
Its a little hard to hear Ryan say My mom is a Medicare senior in Florida because Schieffer is taking at the same time, but thats indeed what he says. Why would CBS cut this out of the interview ? Is it because, as Fox Nation suggests, that its an crucial to the Democrat attack on Ryan, that he wants to end Medicare as we know it?
This should have been on TV and its shameful that CBS didnt air it live. Once again it looks like the liberal media is trying to protect Obama and the left by not giving the Republican argument a sufficient voice.
The part they edited out is at the link I gave you. The part they broadcast is on the 60 minutes site I am sure.
Sedition, sedition, sedition......
I'm sick of this media and that goes for FOX picking who is to win based on their lies, This is how we got Romney and obama
They posted the portion that you pointed out on their website. Damage control?
Good idea...let’s send it to the RNC and Romney and Ryan...see if there are any takers.
Hope Ryan does an ad with his retiree mother with lots of hugs and smooches.
