    Former Sen. Alan Simpson, co-chairman of the Simpson-Bowles commision on debt and deficit reduction, on Friday called Paul Ryan “a spokesman of hard truth against fakery.”

    You are so right. He's conservative congressman from a democratic district that really seems to like him !

    That must light the hair on the balls of people like Schillian.

    In words, perhaps; in deeds, he's another phony deficit hawk.

    I love it.

    The left is in full blown retreat.

    Ryan has Obama pooping his pants. Biden will gaffe more than ever now that he's been flustered.

    So long you two....the dumbass duo will only get one term.

    Vice President Ryan......almost sounds as good as President Ryan.

    I can hardly wait !

    heh....Both Simpson and Bowles -the leaders of the "bipartisan commission" charged by Boiking with making recommendations on how to get the federal gubmint's financial house in order- have basically endorsed Vinnie Vitalis and Badger Boy.

    BWWWAAAHAHAHAHAHA!

    I would be surprised if Simpson, a conservative Wyoming pol who of course served with Ryan on the Simpson-Bowles Commission, didn't have nice things to say about Ryan. When Simpson suggested that the Commission's plan might still have some life in it he did use an amusingly mixed metaphor though:

    He essentially calls Obama's numbers fakery.

    That's being kind.

    Being from Wyoming, I figured he would have called them bulls**t.

    I lived in the Equality State for 35 years and the consensus was the same: Senator Alan Simpson would give you the shirt off his back, just like Malcolm Wallop, and he always had something funny to say. I was having coffee with a friend of mine one day, and for some reason, the conversation went over to why people were giving him such a hard time on his final campaign for the Senate. My friend, Ginger, said "They're just mean people saying bad things about a good man." I asked her what she meant by "good." She went on to tell me how her brother had gotten seriously hurt out on ranch equipment, and they were her nearest neighbors. He came over right away and flew him to the nearest hospital, some distance from the ranch, and flew family members daily to visit him until he was out of danger. She said he did stuff like that for everyone he met.

    I can't believe the crummy, lying, mean stuff that gets said about the best people in the world on the internet.

    What a hateful bunch of crap to pour out on a man who spent his life doing good for his neighbors, his community, his state, and then later, his nation. He has a tradition of kindness, excellence, and the sharpest mind in his younger days. His wife was a peach, too.

    I don't believe one word of your nasty party-hate files, written in meanness to make bad stuff up about good people. :mad:
