Paul Ryan Compares Obama to NFL Replacement Refs
ABC News ^ | Sep 25, 2012 1:40pm

Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan compared the NFL’s replacement referees to President Obama and slammed an apparent blown call during the Green Bay Packers loss to the Seattle Seahawks during Monday Night Football.

Ryan then drew a parallel between NFL’s struggle with replacement referees and President Obama’s economic job performance during his term in the White House.

“It reminds me of President Obama and the economy. If you can’t get it right, it’s time to get out. I half-think that these refs work part-time for the Obama administration and the Budget Office,” Ryan said.

“They see the national debt clock staring them in the face, they see a debt crisis, and they just ignore and pretend it didn’t even happen. They’re trying to pick the winners and losers and they don’t even do that very well. Look, we have a big choice to make. It’s not an ordinary time.”

Ryan wasn’t done yet. A short time later, the budget guru told supporters that he and Mitt Romney are out campaigning “trying to deserve this victory” and “show you how we’re going to deal with it.” “The principles we will use, the policies we will put in place, and we will not duck this issue,” he said.

“Unlike the Seattle Seahawks last night, we want to deserve this victory. We want to earn this victory, we want a real victory because we want a mandate to fix this mess in Washington before it gets out of our control.” “I’m sorry a Packer fan,” Ryan said in an attempt to excuse himself for breaking from his traditional remarks. “I had to get that last one in there.”

The replacement refs are making much better calls than Zero is.

At least there’s someone in the somnambulistic Romney “effort” swinging away. Any if us surprised that the top of the ticket spends more time trying to remind us of what a “likable fellow” Obama is? Or how “this is hard . . Stop picking on us”

Romney is a kinder, gentler McCain.

Thanks drewh. Hey, this was over the line (as it were) — very insulting to the scabs.

BTW, the overpaid whiners who complained about some bad calls — grow up, or go get a job. ‘Holes.
