    A bit of an overkill and actually it's criminal assault unless he was pointing a gun at Ryan.

    Democrat operatives are paid to interfere with republican appearances. That an older person was found willing to take a buck to cause a problem isn't surprising.

    Actually, this senior citizen and others are Congressman Ryan's actual constituents , but Ryan refused to meet them at a free public meeting during his recess last year. The elderly constituent had no choice but to pay 15$ plate far away from majority of Ryan's constituents in order to speak.

    What a pithy post.
    Hard to imagine that you were able to pack so much factual and analytic material into such a small space.


    But...what difference does it make whether or not you are enamored with him, if his expertise is able to save entitlements and increase the fiscal health of the the nation?

    Are you able to think that far into the debate?


    Or...to put it another way...did you stop using Arabic numerals after the attacks of 9/11?

    Grow up.

    It's easy to understand why Romney chose Ryan, he wanted an authentic loony to confirm he is an authentic loony. Some ammunition below for those who argue this crackpot is good for America.

    "You [Paul Ryan] can’t tell somebody that in 10 years your economic situation is going to be just wonderful because meanwhile your kids may starve to death." Father Stephen Umhoefer Ryan's pastor

    "[ Paul Ryan] is the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades, I clearly see that Ryan has a whole lotta ‘rage’ in him: A rage against women, a rage against immigrants, a rage against workers, a rage against gays, a rage against the poor, a rage against the environment. Basically, the only thing he’s not raging against is the privileged elite he’s groveling in front of for campaign contributions." Tom Morello Tom Morello: 'Paul Ryan Is the Embodiment of the Machine Our Music Rages Against' | Music News | Rolling Stone


    "There was a time, not so very long ago, when perfectly rational people ran the Republican Party. So how did the party of Lincoln become the party of lunatics? That is what this book aims to answer. Fear not, the Dems come in for their share of tough talk — they are zombies, a party of the living dead." Mike Lofgren 'The Party Is Over: How Republicans Went Crazy, Democrats Became Useless, and the Middle Class Got Shafted' (see down too) [ame=http://www.amazon.com/Party-Over-Republicans-Democrats-Useless/dp/0670026263/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8]The Party Is Over: How Republicans Went Crazy,Democrats Became Useless,and the Middle Class Got Shafted: Mike Lofgren: 9780670026265: Amazon.com: Books[/ame]
