Paul Ryan, the Republican vice presidential nominee in the last election, was booed at President Barack Obama's Second Inauguration today in Washington, D.C.
"If things had gone differently in November, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) might have departed the Capitol on Monday as the vice president of the United States. Instead, he faced a chorus of boos as he left the building to attend President Barack Obama's second inauguration ceremony," reports the Huffington Post.
The left-leaning website reports that Ryan attended the Inauguration out of duty. "Ryan announced last week that he would be present for Obama's public swearing in at the Capitol, calling it his 'obligation.'"
Ryan is chairman of the House Budget Committee.
UPDATE: Here's Ryan's statement on Obama's Inauguration:
"I congratulate President Obama on his inauguration, and I join the country in celebrating this American tradition.
"The president and I were political opponents. We had strong disagreements over the direction of the countryas we still do now. But today, we put those disagreements aside. Today, we remember what we share in common.
"We serve the same country, one that is still in need of repairand is still the freest on earth. We serve alongside men and women from both parties, who govern in good faith and good will. Finally, we serve the same people, who have honored us with their charge.
Stay classy, America.
Did anyone spit at him or make racists remarks?
The Hissyfit Post doesn't elaborate.
The intolerance of the Democrats of other American citizens is appalling and disrespectful
He wouldn't be there today without the partisan press getting on their knees to service their dark lord and master.
Oh, come on, Paul...what a steaming pile of bullsh*t.
Must have been the “Christian Democrats” booing. SARC
Yes I know the term Christian Democrat is a oxymoron
Why would any republican attend Obama’s affair after he stated he was not going to work with them. Ryan was a fool to attend.
Those scum bags that booed Paul Ryan must have been upset that he didn’t give them any freebies..after all, those morons only cheer you if you give them free stuff..A few of my facebook friends have posted that today is the day America died, I tell them NO, that day already happened in 2008 when this Marxist schmuck was elected..today is just a continuance of that awful awful day
I have no idea why he bothered to attend. Surely he something more enjoyable to do, like cleaning the cat litter box.
Class does tell.
Ryan should have stayed away. However, given his liberal tendencies lately, maybe he wanted to be there.
Guess I don’t have much sympathy for Ryan. He, like most of the rest of his fellow “republican” congressmen, has been a major disappointment.
LOL, why on earth would Paul Ryan want to be seen at an NBA All Star Game street party, I mean Ubanga inauguration?
I'll try: By booing at Ryan, they were actually bringing up images of Casper the Ghost. Calling someone a Casper is commonly known as an expression of derision/mocking towards a person's whiteness.
(How's that for race baiting liberal mode :o) )
I thought I heard reports of them burning W in effigy last time, so maybe they’re getting better.
I can’t really think of any reason to cheer him, can you?
I figure most of Obama’s supporters work in low-wage service industries, so for me the next four years will be like the last four—a lockdown on any spending beyond that absolutely required to stay fed, clothed, and sheltered. Though they don’t realize it, those people depend on the velocity of money through the economy to survive. It is therefore my duty to slow that velocity as much as possible.
Paul Ryan deserves to be booed. He let down the country along with the guy who picked him as VP nominee. Time for him to think about where he is.
Well, he’s a conservative and one of the few who has actually challenged The Won, risking his job and position in doing so.
But I guess the geriatric Keyboard Kommandos out there, risking nothing, know more than Ryan does...and are busy destroying any opposition to Bambi. Way to go, Keyboard Kommandos!
This was reported to have been initiated by the
DO”J”, which took time from its agenda of helping
terrorists and handing out weapons to drug cartels,
and covering up vote fraud, to attack a US Congressman.
