    This is just too funny. Here we have Romney, champion flip flopper, who, the right wing assumes, picks Ryan to add true blue genuine conservative values to the ticket. A man of sterling character the right can depend on to further all their sacred principles. There are those on this board who have expressed their willingness to accept that premise, hold their nose and vote for Romney.

    Now in addition to Romney's megaflips you now have Ryan's giant flop. Your true blue standard bearer, the essence of conservative image 'no longer" supports his medicare cuts, . One of his signature issues. That which was a huge part of his budget and, more importantly, his philosophy and was supposed to draw the reluctant conservatives back into the fold.

    What does that say about character and conviction vs ambition and ego. Nothing to me except for the laugh, he is/was your hero.

    But wait. Romney said Ryan no longer supports these cuts. What does Ryan say? Surely he will not go along with this destruction of his character.........will he? That would destroy the only reason anyone ever had to vote for him.......wouldn't it? Surely he will be on every news channel immediately telling us he is his own man that he resents words and beliefs being put in his mouth and will immediately withdraw from the race. Isn't that what a man of character would do?

    After all these cuts were part of Ryan's budget that actually passed the house and, supposedly, are supported by a majority of the party. It is on the record.

    The suspense is almost as unbearable as the humor.

    You tools should make up your mind.

    When he was announced, your Talking Point Memos told you to spam the board with claims that Ryan was not conservative enough.

    He just threw curing medicare under the bus. Don't yell at me, Ryan did it.

    Now Ryan has the same problem as MItt. Credibility Ryan could come out and tell Mitt to pound sand. If he allows Mitt to dictate his beliefs he just becomes one more ambitious lackey.

    Now you have two..

    I thought you guys were just too upstanding and moral to even consider voting for a flip flopper. Now you have two. I am sure you will find some means to explain that problem.

    You aren't a hypocrite............are you?

    Much like everything else the modern day GOP represents, being hypocritical is at their very core. Consistency is certainly not a requirement in their viewpoints.

    If your boss and you diagreed on how to perform a task and he or she said, "do it my way"...would you quit job job or be flexible about it?

    Romney is the top of the ticket and as such Ryan is willing to adapt and compromise by doing it "the bosses'" way.

    Nice try. Put another quarter in the slot on your back and try again.
