Posted on 09/03/2012 1:36:16 PM PDT by KansasGirl
Republican nominee for Vice President Paul Ryan addressed a packed crowd today at East Carolina University Greenville, NC... His message was clear: America is no better off, and in many ways worse off, than it was when President Barack Obama came to office.
The audience--two thousand inside the gymnasium, several hundred in overflow seating next door, and thousands more turned away--stood patiently in the humid, sweltering late summer heat to see the Ryan, drawing numbers reminiscent of the closing weeks of the 2008 campaign, when Gov.

Ladies and gentlemen, that is exactly what Barack Obama is doing today. [Cheers] You see, the President has no record to run on. [Audience: Thats right!] In fact, every president since the Great Depression who asked Americans to send them into a second term could say that you were better off today than you were four years ago.

Another good job and top notch performance by Paul Ryan in East North Carolina. Thousands of folks there and, thousands turned away. The DNC freak show begins tomorrow. Should be interesting with all the nutcases ranting, raving, spinning and clamoring for more “Obama Free Stash”!!!
Rep. Paul Ryan KNOWS how to get under Mr. Obama’s skin.
