    When TIME named Paul Ryan a runner-up in last year’s Person of the Year issue, many were familiar with his proposed budget, but few knew that the Wisconsin congressman stayed fit with the now-best selling P90X workout plan. (Ryan’s father and grandfather died of heart attacks.) In fact, it was Ryan’s fitness regime (and Herculean strength on all things fiscal) that inspired the workout-themed sitting for the Person of the Year; those portraits, photographed by Gregg Segal, appear in this week’s issue.

    Paul's Hot! Joe's Not. I have to admit that I'm not "with it" anymore. I can't dubstep. That would probably kill me. I'm a rock 'n' roller. That's my music and my era. And that's my excuse for completely missing out on the "Paul Ryan is hot" mania that is sweeping the country. It started as soon as Romney announced Paul Ryan as his running mate this summer. Women know all about it. They started it. They're keeping it going. So there must be something to it. Did you know there's a dance called the Paul Ryan? Yep. Here's the...

    ST. PETERSBURG, FL – Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan says he feels “good” and is “looking forward” to the only VP debate of election, taking place in Kentucky in fewer than 36 hours. “I am looking forward to giving people a very clear choice,” Ryan told reporters during a quick stop to Old Farmer’s Creamery. “Look, Joe Biden has been on this stage many times, this is my first time so sure it is a nervous situation because Joe Biden is one of the most experienced debaters we’ve had in modern politics. But the Achilles Heel he has is...

    Gallup is reporting that Mitt Romney has received a five-point bounce from his trouncing of the President in last week’s debate, with the race tied at 47-47. The race is a dead heat, and, just like the MLB playoffs happening in Washington for the first time in decades, every single play now counts. This week, Vice-President Biden will face Congressman Paul Ryan in the Vice Presidential Debate. Conservatives have been licking their lips for this one ever since Ryan was selected by Governor Romney as his running mate back in early August. But don’t count Biden out too soon: he...

    My country has in its wisdom contrived for me the most insignificant office that ever the invention of man contrived or his imagination conceived. John Adams, First Vice President of the United States, 1793 Since our nation’s first vice president took his oath of office in 1789, the office in which John Adams labored under the shadow of George Washington has been much maligned. Despite the scorn that has been heaped upon this second highest office in the land, 14 of its alumni have gone on to become presidents; and every four years there recurs a mad scramble in both...

    October 7, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Republican vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan came to the Chicago area for a big fundraiser, and protesting Democrats were waiting for him. His motorcade arrived at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare. The top price was nearly $76,000 per person. Outside, Democrats demonstrated against the Republican agenda and Big Bird joined them to protest Mitt Romney's plan to end the federal subsidy for the Public Broadcasting System. They were upset about his Medicare plans, but Republicans say they're on a roll after the first Presidential debate. "The Romney-Ryan voucher plan would leave seniors at the mercy of...

    Just remember: there's no such thing as media bias. Reporter Terry Camp got a rebuke from Paul Ryan at the end of this interview for the ABC affiliate in Detroit, when Camp asked a "weird" question of Ryan at the end of a string of queries on gun violence. After Ryan talked about the need for communities and groups within them to create moral structures and education and for government to push pro-growth policies to create jobs and opportunities in the inner cities, Camp tried tossing in a gotcha question --- and got rebuked by Ryan as the interview ended:...

    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.

    To hear the Obama campaign tell the story, VP candidate Paul Ryan got a real earful at one of his own events this past week. An Iowa woman chimed in with a question for the candidate which she felt deserved an answer. At the town hall event on Tuesday, [Linda] Morrison cited a contentious exchange between Ryan and Fox News anchor Chris Wallace on Sunday, in which Ryan said it would take too long to explain the details of his tax plan. She asked the vice presidential candidate why he wasn’t more specific, and why he “didn’t answer his question...

    DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz described the Medicare reforms proposed by GOP Vice-Presidential nominee and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) as "literally a death trap for seniors." White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters that Ryan's reforms would "change Medicare as we know it." But it was Obamacare that already changed Medicare as we know it, transforming it literally into a death trap for seniors. Obamacare cut Medicare by $716 billion over the next 10 years alone, mostly by slashing Medicare payments to doctors and hospitals. And that is just a down-payment on what is to come. Ryan...

    Paul Ryan’s latest swing through the state of Iowa has begun in two communities where the Republican nominee for Vice President has family ties. On Monday, Ryan rallied Republicans at his grandfather’s alma mater, Loras College, in Dubuque. On Tuesday, Ryan begins his day in Clinton, where his mother-in-law was born. The bus tour of Mississippi River towns continues through Muscatine before it concludes in Burlington Tuesday evening. Republicans packed the Loras College field house on Monday evening to see Ryan, and even more stood outside because the building was over capacity. Ryan was greeted with thunderous applause and cheers...

    If asked, how might you describe Paul Ryan's role and level of involvement within the national conversation about Washington's budget process and the looming debt crisis?  If you were the Washington Post, you'd attempt to capture it with this surreal headline:    "Amid Debt Crisis, Paul Ryan Sat on Sidelines" Welcome to Bizarro World.  Of all the potential attacks on Paul Ryan "journalist" Lori Montgomery had at her disposal, she decided to run with the preposterous-on-its-face "he just sits in the corner and does nothing" angle.  Where to begin?  Keith Hennessey has an outstanding and comprehensive piece deconstructing Montgomery's, ahem, "reportage" over...

The Republican VP nominee told Chris Wallace the “ugly fruits” of a foreign policy of weakness is unraveling before our eyes on our TV screens. “The Obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes on our TV screens. And so what Mitt Romney is going to do is lay out a very different vision for foreign policy.

    The headlines this weekend were all about the boos Paul Ryan elicited on Friday when he addressed the AARP, the self-styled seniors' lobby. The herd of independent media minds missed the real story, which is that the Republican Vice Presidential nominee went into the heart of the entitlement culture, told some hard truths, and even won applause for doing so. Mr. Ryan deserves credit merely for showing up at an organization that portrays itself as nonpartisan but whose leadership is dominated by long-time liberals who consistently pursue the Democratic Party's entitlement agenda. On Friday, our Kimberley Strassel reported on the...

    Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan will be in southeast Iowa on Tuesday, making stops in Clinton, Muscatine and Burlington. The stops are part of a two-day swing through Iowa, a key swing state in the 2012 election. Ryan, a congressman from Wisconsin, is kicking off the trip with a Monday night rally at Loras College in Dubuque, where his grandfather went to school. Full details of his stops on Tuesday have not been released. But an invitation to the Clinton event says it will be a town hall meeting at 9 a.m. at the Clinton County Courthouse, 612 N....
