Paul Ryan Booed at Inauguration
Weekly Standard ^ | 01/21/13

Posted on 01/21/2013 1:46:31 PM PST by MissesBush

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 country—as 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 repair—and 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.

Typical of the sub-human trash that support Obama. But keep in mind Obama and the US news media (redundant I know) tells us it's Republicans who are mean-spirited and divisive. It's also why I consder today a day of infamy, with the worst man and the lowest man having "won" and being sworn back in today not because of a record of accomplishment or because he deserves it, but because he was the best liar and sladerer. This kind of crap flows from the top, spurred by Obama's horribly divisive and hyper-partisan campaign.

Did anyone spit at him or make racists remarks?

The Hissyfit Post doesn't elaborate.

He wouldn't be there today without the partisan press getting on their knees to service their dark lord and master.

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.

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 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.

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!

He wouldn’t have been there without the conservative press getting on their knees. And they wouldn’t have gotten to their knees if Soros hadn’t figuratively held a gun to their heads (as confirmed by law enforcement), just like he did to Bill and Hillary Clinton (and their friends Bill Gwatney and Stephanie Tubbs, who were each killed shortly after agreeing to present a petition challenging Obama’s eligibility at the 2008 dem convention), and like he did to the eligibility judges one after the other (as it appears from their blatant unethical and/or unlawful actions - which seem to me to be red flags to tell us they were acting under duress).

2008 was a coup. The systems are all hostage.

The stage is being set for some combination of economic crash, EMP from Iran, and/or biological warfare - most likely at the hands of Hezbollah and Hamas operatives who were flown on direct unchecked flights from Iran to Venezuela, possibly bearing both Saddam Hussein and Bashar Assad’s WMD’s including biological WMD’s, and for whom Eric Holder is paving the way by suing to keep the border unenforced and arming the drug cartels that have been smuggling in terrorists. By now there could be biological weapons stockpiled in every major city just waiting for the signal.

And Obama first had to get Obamacare passed before pushing the Muslim agenda he supports - as he told the (now-ousted0 Egyptian ambassador in January of 2010 - because he wanted to drive doctors out of business and bring on shortages of medicines before the biological warfare hit.

The agenda all sects of Islam agree on is the destruction of the US and Israel and the institution of worldwide sharia. Everything Obama has ever done has advanced those 3 goals. The goals of the communist-Islamist alliance under George Soros - a worldwide alliance that illegally put a foreign enemy combatant into our White House to destroy us from within, as both the communists and Muslims have always said they would do.

America is dead.

You hear Mark Levin say it in his radio show teasers. A classy loser is still a loser. Levin says he's a loser forever.

If Obama wants to use the inauguration to attack his political foes, then he chose the battlefield. Republicans shouldn't hold back because it's the inauguration, or Obama will always find sacred ground to desecrate, knowing that his opponents revere them more than he does, and so will not fight back in kind.

Well, I AM from Wisconsin, although he’s not my rep, I must say I’m disappointed in the comments here on Freeper. Paul Ryan is one of the good guys. We conservatives will NEVER find a rep that we agree with 100% of the time.

Look at these comments! This is what The WON wants us to do. Eat our own. Don’t fall for this. The trash, low class folks that show their ignorance and level of education by booing / hollaring at Paul Ryan are the types that are slobbering on the O man today. Write a letter to the editor rather than taking it out on Paul Ryan, please.

I’ll back Paul Ryan any day as he has manners and IS respectful of the office of the president.

And yes, I am sick to my stomach that O was elected, although I figure it was by voter fraud.

Good grief! Talk about eating our own!! Paul Ryan doesn't have 'liberal tendencies' he may simply have ideas that are not as conservative as yours. That doesn't make him a bad person, it doesn't even make him a bad legislator; it simply means he has some other opinions than you might have.

I believe it was right for Paul Ryan to attend the inauguration. He made it perfectly clear that he doesn't agree politically with Obama, and will work against him, but that this is how our country works.

Neither Romney nor Ryan let the country down. When you have the deck stacked against you by a co-opted news media willing to give Obama billions in free campaign advertising in the guise of balanced journalism, little can be said or done to cut through that. 2012 was the single worst year of a horrible Obama presidency. The ONLY reason Obama survived to be re-elected is because the media got him there. The media covered up disasters and scandals from national security leaks in the spring to make Obama look good for his campaign (impeachable), to Fast & Furious and the absurd exec. privilege claim, to the lies and cover up of Benghazi, to the cover up of the botched federal response to Sandy and the true depths of the economic mess we're in, inc. falsifying job and employment numbers. Any one of these things would have been used to sink a Republican incumbent by the US news media. For Obama, they covered it all up. A little hard to win when you have that working against you.

The intolerance of the Democrats of other American citizens is appalling and disrespectful.

When America was still a constitutional Republic with a majority of citizens respectful of the rights endowed to us, that would be unquestionably true and sufficient.

But now - it is also dangerous, because we no longer live in such a nation. We used to speak of the party not in power as "the loyal opposition". To the Progressives now in command - we conservatives are less than fully human, and thus not deserving of consideration as equals.

Do you think I exaggerate? That's understandable, given our long history of representative government. We are in a different place now, where radical Utopians are emboldened by the success of their politics and the weakness of their opponents.

To quote Mark Twain, history does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme. Listen to the tune in Obama's address today - it does not sing of liberty to achieve, but rather, of service to need. Gerald Ford once averred: "A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.

But the fundamental truth is that a government large enough to give you everything you want will first take everything you have.

We’ve got to start supporting people. We may not agree with them %100 (and frankly, I can’t think of anybody I agree with to that extent, because they’re them and I’m me) but we have to support them in any area where we can agree with them.

Unless you want to run for Congress or for the Senate, you’re not going to agree %100.

Support the person with whom you can most agree, pressure that person if you feel your position is important but not being respected, but look at the big picture.

Also, if you live anywhere conservative or even moderate, start getting your candidates up there yesterday.

Amen!

For a contingent of FReepers, no politician will ever be 'conservative' enough. It's apparently the nature of political websites that some discontented posters just want to rant and find fault with everything and everyone. Politics being a complicated business that frustrates the perpetually angry, cogency is abandoned for the pouting and insult which come too easily to some. The vacuousness they represent cannot taken be too seriously when you realize that no human being on earth could ever be conservative enough to satisfy these folks. So let them rant as they will - and ignore the cranky proclivities that seem to be symptomatic of, not just the geriatric, but the irredeemably discontented in every generation.

No, but a billion dollar minus one campaign that wouldn't fight back in kind did.

I'd have preferred to hear a reply like "I'm disappointed that the president chose this solemn event to continue his partisan attacks on his opponents. If he can't set aside his animosity today, how can we expect to work with him tomorrow in good faith?"

I agree. He had courage to step up and run and seems to be a very decent man. I hope Congressman Ryan has a long and respectable career in the public square. Some people respect a batter who only gets on base 1/3 of the time, but expect their politicians to be 100% in tune with them on issues, strategy and charm, or they are derided as not good enough.

Not so clear to me. Have you looked at his record?

Ryan is a member of the GOP elite. He, like the rest, will take whatever position furthers his ambitions, not what is good for the people he is supposed to represent. Why do you think he endorsed Romney for president? He was looking for that VP nomination. Looks good on his resume

Ryan is very good and he’s about 100% smarter and more strategic than anybody here, including the bloviating Rush doing his “show prep” (since Rush has bunches of bucks and has never held an elected or decision making position in his entire life).

If you want to criticize one of Ryan’s positions, point it out and send him an e-mail.

If you don’t support anybody because you’re too pure and can’t find a candidate who meets your criteria...then go back to being a Keyboard Kommando, who accomplishes nothing except venting his spleen.

You may not agree with him or anybody else on every point (and neither do I), but you have to support him on the things with which you can agree. Otherwise, we’ll be out there pointing the gun at our own heads because nobody is pure enough for us.
