    Meet the Press

    Check out Paul Ryan. His only answers are "cut taxes on the rich" and "cut taxes on Corporations". Duh!

    When asked about demand, he seemed to not know what it means.

    He keeps insisting we need to stick with what works. We know his policies don't work. Trickle down doesn't work. Even when over a hundred Republican Senators and Congressmen have created thousands of jobs from Obama's stimulus, he still says it was a failure.

    He says the president is preying on emotions of fear. He says the president he never supported is a divider.

    He is so full of shit. Just shocking that, but not surprising that David Gregory lets him get away with it over and over again. He says NOTHING that the president presents can be passed.

    Now get this, when Gregory points out the payroll tax cuts, Ryan says it's a failed idea. Yet ALL of his policies are tax cuts. Does that make sense?

    Ryan is a perfect example of Republicans. No ideas. Nothing for the middle class. Because if they don't have jobs or aren't "rich", according to Republicans, it's their fault.

    Ryan says the REASON the Bush tax cuts didn't work is because they aren't "permanent". I'm stunned.

    He used that SAME dumb canard that if you take ALL the money from the rich, it wouldn't run the country for more than a couple of months. Well if that's true, then "trickle down" certainly wouldn't work. He talks about "redistribution of wealth". Well fuck. IT'S ALREADY HAPPENED!!!!!!!!!! What is with these Republicans?

    Apparently you have as much trouble with video as you do with reading.

    When Ryan was asked about demand Ryan pointed out that the government stimulus tried by both Bush and Obama did not work, and that doing the same thing again is going to accomplish the same thing.

    Did you pay attention to the first 2:44 of the video where Ryan talked about all the jobs bills the Republicans passed that never got through the Senate? Do you have any comment about how the party of no in the Senate is actually the Democrats?

    Give me a break. He says Republican jobs bills are stalled in the Senate BUT COULDN'T NAME A SINGLE ONE. NOT ONE!!!!!!!!!! Cut taxes for the rich and subsidies for companies are NOT "jobs bills".

    One reason why he couldn't name any. Because there aren't any. Remember, "Government can't make jobs". Why would anything believe Republicans would have a "jobs" bill. They say government can't make jobs. Duh! No, not just "Duh", but "Double DUH!"

    As far as the stimulus not working, seems there are well over a hundred Republican congressmen that seemed to make it work. Here is a list of them and what they spent the money on. Oops.

    Seriously, RDean...why would you even post that interview? Paul Ryan sat there very calmly answering each and every one of David Gregory's questions with a thoughtful, concise position. He isn't reading canned lines off note cards or a teleprompter. He's perfectly comfortable talking economic policy right off the cuff. The reason Ryan can go do NBC without batting an eye is that he knows his shit when it comes to the economy and isn't phased at all when someone like Gregory repeatedly hits him with Obama's 2012 re-election talking points. I'm not surprised that you didn't understand what Ryan was saying. I mean let's face it...when it comes to economics you're functioning at a fourth grade level and he's doing a doctoral thesis.

    What's really funny is that you think that interview proves Ryan doesn't understand economics. What it DOES...is prove that Ryan understands it much better than anyone in the Obama Administration. It's interviews like that one that make me wish Ryan had run for President. Unlike Obama...he actually has a clue.
