Read a link about his lunch stop. That is the second time I've heard of him autographing a baseball. An upcoming trend perhaps? We will have to see.
When you watch Romney and Ryan what would go through your head to pick Obama? Thats just insane and i've been a Democrat for alomst 17 yrs. Obama has been a disapointment
Know what I like about Ryan? He a down home American guy. He like your neighbor or one of my hunting buddies. A hunting buddy that's smart (none of mine are). There a certain amount of innocence about him too, like he is genuinely in it to make the USA better. He really cares about the county and the people in it.
Paul Ryan is going to destroy Biden in the debates. The ONLY way Biden will be perceived to win are fools that can be fooled all of the time and fools that can be fooled some of the by lies, more lies, and damn lies from Biden. -PI
What I really really love about this stop is if you look at the background all you see is young people the polls are reflecting that with the youth moving towards Romney/Ryan. One thing he has to get across to the young voters is that Obama and his policies is mortgaging their future, and start to remind them what Pelosi said about them when she called them freeloaders. And when he visits florida remind seniors of their duties as americans to leave a better future for their grandkids.
Obama's Fiscal Responsibility Commission Co-Chairs Praise Ryan http://dlvr.it/21NkQK
Paul Ryan has the instruction manual "no assembly required" for the stump.
Paul ryan can appeal to the middle.....People like "competence and confidence" When he speaks at the convention and the debates the more the nation will getfamiliar with the ticket. Two competent men, meaning the more the nation will vote with their wallets.....
Come January 2013..... Obama can have all the Entertainment Tonight interviews as a private citizen......
Eric Cantor is an EPIC FAIL whose PAC undermines conservatives at every step.... Very disappointing to hear Ryan praise him.... I know he had to say it, being where he was, but still... it ain't true.
Massachusetts Care is nothing like Obama Care which is 2000+ pages Mass. was 72. Obama Care has waivers & pork. Not Mass. Care. Obama Care total take over. Not Mass. Care. Obama Care not approved bipartisan or reviewed by voters. Mass. Care was. https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/313003_1910725101614_119557488_n.jpg How do you get people to pay something towards their care & stop bankrupting a state? http://www.WhyRomney.com Solving problems is harder than people realize especially when the legislature was 85% liberal at that time. Mitt had Rush & Heritage Foundation as well as Newt's approval of what his team, experts & leg. fashioned. Obama does not care about fixing problems like Mitt did. Obama cares about ripping off tax payers, taking over all aspects of gov & power. Mitt does not need the job. He just wants to save America.
Both are a lot alike. Actually, I have decades of experience with this type of discussion: people telling me liberals and socialists are not alike, Democrats and socialists are not alike, communists and socialists are not alike.
You ask, "how do you get people to put something toward their healthcare?" Not by mandating the young and healthy pay for it as Obama and Romney do.
Good speech but Rasmussen shows a drop not a bump. But early to tell and WI looks better now possibly Florida.
They need to keep up the talk on Medicaid. 25% of Seniors have Medicare Advantage which Obama cuts.
Still hate when Ryan and Mitt say Mitt was a Conservative Governor this is easily disproven. Mitt walked across the isle he did not work with Democrats he more or less became one. Not really debatable. 700 million in new fees and taxes. Hate how people say a fee is not a tax it simply is just two different ways for Government to take money from Americans.
Like Beck always says. Do your own homework people. The polls are sampling more democrats on purpose to skew results.
Gallup Daily Tracking Poll: Romney still leading by 2 points...
Rasmussen Poll: Romney leading by 2 points in FLORIDA
Mitt Romney 45% (46%)
Barack Obama 43% (45%)
A survey of 500 likely voters was conducted August 15, 2012. The MOE is +/-4.5%. http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/elections/election_2012/election_2012_presidential_election/florida/election_2012_florida_president
It's nice to see these guys working to get our vote. True, it helps to get coverage by the media. But as you discover in the entertainment industry, even a small show has to be treated like the big time, because if any media person is there and decides you are not lighting up the crowd, well, that's what goes into your next contract discussion.
Herman Cain had the showmanship and the sales patter down solid. But he couldn't deliver on substance beyond the veneer of his tax plan. Ryan and Romney both can go deep on anything economic, without getting lost in the weeds. And they both deliver at the podium. Not as engaging as Cain, nor as electric as Palin, but a solid, clean performance.
Not big on speeches. Gingrich and Palin grab my attention but not too many others. No offense to Ryan but it's not inspiring. Glad to see people are engaged though because that means they will go vote.
Please watch Paul Ryan here and tell me that you are not inspired. http://www.rightspeak.net/2012/08/its-official-romneyryan-2012-full-video.html Watch him in his home town with a turn out of 10K + people and see him get choked up and humbled. Paul, like Mitt are decent good freedom fighters.
I have a feeling the when we have the R/R team in the White House that V.P. Ryan will have great responsibilities.
A great businessman delegates responsibilities and IMO it is Ryan who will be the one delegated to traveling the country, talk shows, etc., DETAILING the Ronmey/Ryan Budget/Tax plan, and also explaining in detail why we have to cut spending to save this Country. He probably knows more about the budget process, the economic detalis and the looming crisis than anyone in Washington! I thing he will have great responsibilities on the domistic front. :-)
There is a lot confusion the msm as usual is peddling out there to confuse the folks about Ryan's budget and the one's medicare raid. Ryan's budget is scored against medicare budget's baseline so when obamacare became law the Medicare budget's baseline changed to include those cuts when it should not have since the cuts were never meant to fund medicare but to fund obamacare, this is the travesty, so Ryan's budget had to keep those cuts to keep up with medicare budget's baseline which is the current law. If he had removed the cuts then Ryan would have had to find new cuts to offset the ones cuts to keep up with this baseline, it would go against the promise GOP made to current seniors not to cut Medicare so they went with the ones cuts to keep up with the baseline. The important point is that the one's cut is a raid not a saving since it goes to fund obamacare not to the Medicare trust fund which Ryan's budget does.
Ryan goes to FLORIDA
Senior Lady shouts - Good Luck - Kick A$$!
Like I said all along we need a podium pounder - I think we finally have one!
Democrats win (not always, but mostly) when they make a hypothetical argument in a circumstantial situation promising fantastical results.
The argument this election, thanks to Governor Romney's GENIUS in selecting Paul Ryan, will be ACTUAL, not hypothetical.
The situation is a REALLY terrible economy with REAL people feeling the pain.
The results of this administration's policies are EPIC FAILURES - across the board - with REAL people experiencing them and being hurt by them.
How Obama wins, given the above, is a total mystery. Barring something catastrophic happening to the Romney campaign, I don't think it's possible.
And for the sake of my children, your children, and those children yet to be born, I pray to God EVERY D@MN NIGHT that I am right.
I would love to be able to believe this. I have been on a facebook "debate" with a co-worker this morning and I'm not so sure the general population is intelligent enough to know the difference between Hypothetical and Actual. Just a few statements to share from that conversation.
"Romney doesn't like America"
"Romney is out for himself, not us"
You just can't fix stupid.....
People like this will always be with us. They are natural slaves to the government, made happy and whole by listening to media propaganda. They value being on the bandwagon more than their freedom, until it is gone.
This is why the Founders knew we could only be free in a Republic with sovereign states. They were faced not only with ignorance, but also with loyalists. A democratic majority would have returned America back to the King eventually. They began the Revolution with 20% support.
It will always be a battle. We could do ourselves and freedom a great service by repealing the 17th Amendment.
When they say stuff like that I always ask for a link to back that up!! Usually they can't provide one.
neither he or romney appeals to me. as a 62 year old wife, mom i find it rather astonishing how you all think he is so great when he's been in washington for 14 years and romney has been running for president for 6 years. Why is he more qualified to walk into the white house than governor palin who has by far more experience than obama, biden and yes ryan put together? why are thy snubbing gov palin from speaking at the convention? why are they so afraid and intimidated by her? and why do both parties trash women who are just as capable as leading this country than the good old boys in both parties? I am a conservative but will not hold my nose and vote for this rino and his insider partner. I will vote conservative on the down ballot to make sure conservatives get elected to the house and senate but I will no longer support the rnc, rino romney or the gop establishment. I sent back a letter to the rnc letting them know that the manner in which they trashed and snubbed Gov. Palin is unacceptable and as such my contributions will go only to her pacs and those she endorses.
We lost a great moment in history by letting the elites and Rockerfeller wing elbow Palin aside. Our grandchildren will pay for it, too.
But that moment is gone. The window is now fully closed, and Gov. Palin is settling into her new role quite well.
Meanwhile, all we have to work with is the Romney/Ryan ticket. Stop slamming those guys. They will win, and win big, and that's not the worst thing that could happen.
The real effort for those of us who are "restoration minded," is to work down-ticket and locally, to pick up where the primary process failed us. We have to get rid of the weak-minded, corrupt fools with (R) designations, and replace them with men and women of integrity.
If we can get a movement built up to repeal the Seventeenth Amendment, or to get an Amendment on Marriage, or an Amendment on limiting the scope of the commerce clause, then we can work like crazy to make sure Romney doesn't screw it up. That is an effort worthy of our time and money.
But disparaging the GOP ticket before the election is a total waste of energy and time, and can only make more difficult the task we face afterward.
Well, here's ANOTHER vote for Obama...no vote at all in such a tight election is a vote for the Dem's...
I am not interested in a cult of personality, whether it be Obama or Palin. I like Sarah Palin, but we are engaged in the battle of our lives in this election, and we need to be out there with energy and enthusiasm supporting this ticket. The alternative is too awful to bear.
Every voting-eligible person in this country has a right to vote - and can vote whatever way he or she likes. I personally would wish that people who don't know what they are voting for or those that vote one way or another for frivolous reasons should just stay home. Elections are important matters and people that walk into the booth without a clue as to which way to go are doing themselves a disservice.
If you can switch your vote so easily because some other voter irritates you, then you aren't taking the voting process serious enough and should, in my opinion, join the ranks of the clueless.
The issues should be weighed heavily and the decision should be a well thought out one. Trying to feign blackmail to get your vote doesn't reflect very well on your decision making process. But, the choice is yours. Romney does indeed have to earn your vote. But we don't.
I'm not sure where all your anger is coming from and frankly, I don't want to know. All I was pointing out is that every vote counts, if person A gets more then person B then person A wins. If that in your world is a Saul Alinsky tactic I don't know what to tell you....have a good night.
So do you prefer I vote for O or no one?
No doubt you prefer I vote for Romney but as of now that is not an option it is O or no one on the Presidential line straight Republican otherwise.
No doubt given those two choices no one is preferred by you.
Logic is then that a no vote is NOT a vote for Obama.
Lying to people like that might just make some not vote at all. It has me about 70% chance of voting for Obama though I most likely hate him more than you do. I object to Saul Alinsky tactics by Republicans so much I will vote against them and for their opponent to send a message.
Every vote counts, so if you or I don't show up to vote, and more bo candidates do, then bo wins. It's just a matter of simple logic, no?
The more people we get to not vote for Obama the better. But if they do not vote for Romney he is not nearly as good off as if they did.
Same with Romney. If you vote for him he gets 1 vote Obama 0. If you vote for Obama Obama 1 Romney 0 if you vote for neither Obama 0 Romney 0. Now in my book 0 - 0 is a tie but 1 - 0 is a win. Thus not voting for Romney is NOT a vote for Obama.
Romney will have to earn his votes just like every politician. But lying that no vote is a vote for Obama is as true as not voting is a vote for Romney. Neither is the least bit true.
I am seriously tempted to actually vote for Obama because of all the people spouting this nonsense. Which do you prefer. I vote for Obama I vote for neither?
Still say it is the same?
Right now Romney is selling himself to me but comments like yours drive me away from Romney. I detest Obama with every fiber of my body. But Mitt will still have to win my vote. I have voted for no one in other elections. If I like neither I vote for neither.
Amen Teresa. I've been a supporter of Gov. Palin since I first heard of her...when she was the Mayor of Wasilla. So I've supported Palin a long, long time! That being said, she IS NOT on the ticket!!!!!
The choice IS CLEAR....
Romney/Ryan should win this in a landslide. Just keep exposing Obbummer and honestly speak to the issues!
Another thing is perfectly clear: NOT VOTING is a vote for Obbummer!
