Paul Ryan Ends Interview Early After "Strange" Question
Real Clear Politics ^

Posted on 10/08/2012 6:59:53 PM PDT by TigerClaws

Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan walked out of an interview with Detroit's ABC News affiliate after the local news anchor attempted to "stuff words" in his mouth. Ryan was answering a series of questions about violence, guns and gun control laws.

Ryan, addressing gun violence, said the best thing to do is to "help teach people good discipline [and good character. Local anchor Terry Camp asked Ryan if he could do all of that "by cutting taxes" which caused him to get up and end the interview.

I agree with Paul Ryan. Just walk off when they try to pull something stupid.

This is where Akin made a mistake ~

At the same time Ryan made a mistaken even walking into the situation.

It's probably not possible for moderate minded independent staffers to figure this out ~ but most Freepers can.

Agree. Needs to be seen.

The ambush per planned press conference Romney did shows what we are up against. After that absurd ambush Romney saw we are in the Pravda media era. Only way to handle it is these debates and going directly to the people.

Watch the video, Ryan did not end the interview. It was ended by someone off-camera.

He could also have answered:
More gun laws only makes it harder for those who obey laws and does nothing to thwart those who don't.
The way to revitalize an area is to let business flourish there, it's the wrong answer to take even more tax money out of the economy.

That was great. The reporter was completely busted and he knew it.

Trying to screw with your interview subject rather than elicit meaningful responses with genuinely insightful questions.

Dumbass gotcha questions from a typist who doesn't have half the intelligence that Ryan does.

My father's response to people like him was always, "Go scratch your ass."

Good for Ryan. That was an absurd question with no relation to the topic at hand. It’s likely the reporter was hoping for a “gotcha!” moment and Ryan saw where this was heading.

The TV guy thought he was Joe Biden. He thought it was his job to debate Ryan in a hostile way.

Good for Ryan.

Although part of me wanted Ryan to take it to this guy and school him. But the guy wasn't worth Ryan's effort.

Good debate prep for Ryan however.

After Ryan answered question, I heard “Thank you very much sir from questioner.” Words that meant to me, the interview was over at which time Ryan took off his microphone and said the words were strange. It was the questioner, not Ryan, who ended the interview. As always, the media seems to be distorting what really happened.

It’s very clear that somebody off screen stopped the interview, but I bet this will be on the news as “Ryan tucks tail and runs” on CNN etc.

I don't blame him. It was obvious at the point the interviewer was going to demagogue the interview with gotcha questions. No point in participating in that at all.

Don't take the liberal's bait. Race Bait or any other kind.

Don't engage them on the "facts" or issues they bring up until you vet them. Who are they? What is their credibility? Who pays them and who has paid them? Unless they can prove that they are not inveterate liars, paid operatives and aren't nuttier than squirrel poop based on their past history there is no reason to discuss anything they bring up. The press is the enemy and should be treated accordingly.

Pat Caddell slams the media: They have become an “enemy of the people” (video 26:00)

So who was this enemy of the people? Time to give him an anal probe.

He did not “get up”, he did not “walk out” and he did not get testy. Other than that the morons at RCP have it somewhat right. Ryan bitch slapped Ted Baxter, spokesman for the Prince. BFD.

If his reaction were emotional, it is troubling. One approach used to manipulate is to ask these types of questions to get this type of reaction. There are responses that could be used to turn this into an opportunity to express core beliefs and the importance of individual responsibility, which would be far better than walking out. Before the debate, I hope he learns to recognize when he is being baited and how to turn it into an opportunity.

You are correct. The producer ended the interview. Ryan was not falling for any of their "gotcha" questions, they weren't getting the kind of footage they wanted, so they bailed.

Why don't you watch the video and see for yourself if his reaction was emotional or not before airing your "concerns"?

Here's a preview: his reaction was not emotional. It was even-handed, reasonable, and calm.

I think it was probably somebody from Romney’s campaign (and for good reason) who stopped the interview. Many taped interviews (60 minutes, dateline, etc.) get cut off by either a lawyer or spokesperson off camera that has better hindsight where the conversation needs to stop if they are trying to bait the perspon.

Terrible headline.

The interview was already over when Ryan made his comment.

Ryan did NOT end it early.

How is Detroit doing under liberal ownership?

Rolling Stone Magazine, Sept 27 2012 issue, has a small article with this as the lead:

Want a glimpse of what the Republican vision for downsizing government could mean for America's cities? You could do a lot worse than visit Detroit.

Yup. Detroit is a mess. Let's blame Republicans.

He never said that. He said that once it was made legal it can’t be made unlegal by another executive order because those previously closeted gays have outed themselves. I am convinced that gays in the military will be bad for our military.

But some bells can’t be un-rung. To reverse the current policy there will need to be overwhelming evidence that it was wrong to adopt the current policy. At the risk of not understanding your position, I would say that I agree with you that the evidence may come by a military defeat that gets many people killed. The policy should have not been changed.

Ryan’s point is that we are kind of stuck with the change until we have evidence to convince most people. Sometimes democracy weakens a country’s defense for a time.

It isn’t the government’s business to teach you values of any kind, that was your parent’s job and if they failed to do that and it caused you to go out and commit violent crimes, it’s the governmet’s job to punish you for your parent’s failure provided a CCW holder doesn’t correct you first.

The article incorrectly reported the interview. Ryan did not walk out, far from it. Someone off camera ended the interview the first second they realized they couldn’t trip Ryan up.

And with the speed in which the Zero team jumped on it, Id’ say it was a setup. Zero’s team are so desperate for any mud they can sling at R&R, then accuse them of dirty ads.
