I refuse to watch the DNC convention, but I felt the urge to watch Paul Ryan's speech again. Just loved it!
If I wasn't already a Republican, I would be after this speech.
"The greatest threat to Medicare is Obama Care and we're going to stop it."
"We have to stop spending money we don't have! It's not rocket science."
"Obama assumed power 4 years ago. Isn't it time he assumed responsibility?"
FANTASTIC job. I have never seen a better speech.
You have to love someone like Paul Ryan, that gives you hope that there is still light at the end of the tunnel! What a great American!
A man after my rock-n-roll heart, from the rip chords of AC/DC to Led Zeppelin, mixed with a sprinkle of Rage Against the Machines. The boys are definitely back in town. Let the economic engine be primed, ignited, and ready to roll back to prosperity, man. Oh, pardon me, did I fail to include Pink Floyd ("Money").
I can't believe you call this epic. Go back and watch Palin. Palin's speech is a one in a life time.
If Palin was giving that speech than it would be epic. Just think about it.
Ryan was giving a speech like he was in congress talking to all the boys.
The spin smells so bad.
His speech was great, no other word for it, he got out the facts. barry needs to go nov 6th,, to me that is a fact. Romney and Ryan can stop the destruction that has been going on since 2008. There were others would have rather seen run, but they did not, am supporting Romney/Ryan. Great speech Paul !
Geez people, take a breath. Ryan gave a good speech that was written by the same guy who wrote Palin's speech in 2008. Yes, he delivered it well. Yes, he's probably the best choice Romney could have made. That being said, don't forget that he's the same guy who has served in the House for fourteen years and rubber-stamped all of the Bush spending sprees. Don't forget that his budget which made him famous didn't really contain cuts, it just simply slowed down the growth of federal spending.
I don't really have a problem with Ryan, but I'm not ready to declare him as our next best Presidential candidate until he shows he's worth the accolades. A few speeches during a campaign means very little to me. His record of the last fourteen years speaks much more to me than his campaign rhetoric. I'll give Romney/Ryan a chance to stop the destruction of our Republic, but I won't hold my breath waiting for sudden and relentless reform from them. I suspect that after two years of the RR administration, the grassroots will rise up once again and it won't be pretty.
Finally someone taking it to Obama and letting the American people know the record of his failed administration. I guess Paul Ryan listens to the great Rush Limbaugh. Rush mention that we are not taking it to Obama in regards to the worst record of any president towards the US economy on his radio program yesterday.
Thank goodness that Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney listen to the highest rated and most listen to talk radio program in the United States...The Rush Limbaugh program.
After Ann's and Ryan's speech, Mitt Romney really needs to bring it tonight... He needs to have the best speech of the convention.
Think about basic, but profound differences in the '08 and '12 elections.
Gov. Palin and the democrat hand-picked John McCain had to run against eight years of Bush/Cheney--while an unqualified, incompetent and unvetted Barack Obama--with no record, promised the moon.
Contrast that to Romney/Ryan, who don't have the "Bush burden", but do have four years of Obama/Biden failures.
How Romney is not up 10%-15% is beyond belief. (Having said that, it's quite possible he's up big, but Obama's bunch could be "buying" poll #'s or the media needs a close race--to keep ratings up. I personally wouldn't rule out either scenario.)
Another story the media will NOT tell.
After watching Ryan and several others speak, I believe we WILL WIN the election! I believe I was watching the next Vice President making history last night! You know, after Romney's second term, We might be blessed to have President Ryan! The future is looking much brighter recently. The darkness shall pass and the light shall shine! America will be free again!
he won't win with conservative and tea party voters after the kick in the teeth back stabbing he did with the power grab. many of us are not going to vote for him.
I'm not happy about that either, but we simply MUST get rid of NObama! The very idea of him having 4 more years to finish his job of destroying this great nation is enough to drive one to depression... deep depression. So I urge you and other Conservatives who are rightly pissed off about that power grab to hold you nose if you must, but vote for Romney. He needs all the votes he can get and the nation needs a change of leadership (or lack of leadership in NObama's case).
I've been hoping, Rush has been hoping, so many people have been hoping, that Mitt/Paul would start ripping bho's record apart! Yay! More, please.
where are those prostituting for left?
Where are the commies?...... Not spitting here?
The saliva dried up in their open snouts? Listen and learn the facts!!!
More about FuBar Ack to come!
"That's freedom... and I'll take it ANY DAY over the supervision and SANCTIMONY of the 'central planners'!"
...best line of the night.
Except that he said that after he blasted Obama for not keeping his promise to keep the Jainesville plant open. Kind of Orwellian if you ask me. You can't be for smaller government, free markets and such and also support auto bailouts, government choosing winners and losers then say what he did. Something doesn't jibe there. The fact pf the matter is that plant was one of the oldest of those considered for closing. I'm not defending Obama here just presenting facts. Ryan sounded like one of those "I know better than Democrats which big government levers to pull" type establishment RINOs.
Other than that mistake a great speech.
Does Romney believe this, or does he believe in smarter bigger government? We will see.
he could have added:"................. (central planners)...like in Cuba, North Korea, bankrupted socialist Soviet (forced) Union"
It seems Ryan has personally had his fill of obama's communist policies. Bravo, Ryan.
God’s Way To Increase or why no Christian would vote for obama.

Entire week at one time
The Obamerrhoid ,"..puts promises on the record, then calls that the record."
He could not have encapsulated the liberal approach to truth any more clearly.
Conservative principles roll of his tongue effortlessly, extemporaneously, and effectively. I see a Ryan/West ticket in 2020
My beloved Ronald Reagan would have been so proud of Paul Ryan last night. To me, Paul Ryan is a young Ronald Reagan....warmth, strength, kindness, dedication, sincerity, loves America, funny, classy and real!! When you see the effect that Reagan has had again it looms everywhere...these YOUNG GUNS grew up under Reagan, like me, and we know what he stood for and what he loved!! When I listened to Paul for a moment I stepped back closed my eyes and thought I was listening to Ronald Reagan!!!!!
Ryan, Rubio, Palin, Martinez, Walker, Cruz, Mandel and many others....all YOUNG REAGANITES!! Just outstanding!!
Remember for Rush, Sean and Mark Levin....all love and adore Ronald Reagan.....
Just stop and think who is the most influential politician of our time...RONALD REAGAN!! There is no one even close!! What he did lives every single day!! The Tea Party, the grassroots and love of America....THANK YOU RONALD....last night, as with when I listen to Rush, Sean or Mark...I remember and miss you!!
not necessarily. a lot of us conservative and tea party voters will not give rino romney our votes after he kicked us in the teeth and stabbed us in the back with the delegate rule change. i want him and the bush dynasty to lose and then the third party under sarah palin will begin.
Excellent Speech. It is really obvious why Ryan was picked over Portman or Pawlenty. Portman didn't seem to have his heart in the speech or was giving someone else's speech not his. Portman's presentation sucked.
TPaw seemed like he was auditioning for Al Franken's old job with the number of "1 liners" in his speech. His delivery was milquetoast Pawlenty.
An excellent speech, but nowhere near Sarah Palin's--in '08.
Let's not be prisoners of the moment...with Obama and Biden's four years of incompetence, Romney should be up at least 10 points. What's the problem?
Obama wants a constitutional amendment to outlaw free speech, http://dailycaller.com/2012/08/30/citizens-united-leader-to-obama-on-new-constitutional-amendment-bring-it-on/
El Presidente would love nothing more than to silence his opposition. He can try to float the idea of getting First Amendment rights removed, but it will get no traction in Congress. This is another attempt to get his base (like the Obamatons at MSNBC) fired up and distract them from shedding light on his terrible record.
Awesome, awesome speech! Together, we can do this.
I love how Mitt Romney already has a record of success as governor of Massachusetts to prove he is capable of being president, and what do O have? 0. Incredible, just incredible.
you better rethink that about mobster mitt. he's a con man and you are buying right into his phoniness.
Ironic that I can say the exact same thing to you of Obama.
I am always willing to learn and discuss issues by one whose arguments are clear, intelligent and well informed. I have read about Mitt Romney's tenure as governor and his record is as it is being proclaimed, successful
Obama, even while campaigning, allows the national debt to grow by thousands and thousands every MINUTE without seriously addressing the issue, AT ALL, in any interview, on any network or media outlet.
But how is Gov. Romney a monster or a con man? Even Juan Williams said (albeit he meant it as a criticism) that Mrs Romney looks like a woman whose husband takes care of her (I have to giggle when I think of that because what sensible person would take that as a bad thing? Man or woman?). And it's not hard to see that they have raised a strong and sound, healthy family, and they're now grandparents of 18 kids! If a man can do that with his household, backed with what he's done as governor, wouldn't you want to see that kind of man take the reigns in the White house?
Please consider not just the image of the candidates chasing the presidential goal but whom you know has proven results as a leader and caretaker of a people or nation. Image can be such a distracting thing from what's really important.
"that Mrs Romney looks like a woman whose husband takes care of her. I have to giggle when I think of that because what sensible person would take that as a bad thing? Man or woman?
I like your comment on what should be purely obvious. But then again... they don't have a grasp of the plainly obvious. I giggle with you as well.
I was always leery of Romney as being a RINO. Even Bill Whittle admitted it... but a different Romney has emerged in his choice of Ryan. Having said that... there was an obvious lack of Tea Party folk feature in the RNConvention. It was carefully staged managed by the "establishment", though beautifully managed it was, we will still have to hold Romney to the fire, especially when it will be Tea Party types who will usher in the landslide for the Republicans.
If they had ANY respect for the Tea Party, they would have featured Allen West as speaker. But they didn't and they don't. So in the glitz of confetti and drifting balloons, I still don't trust them. Not one bit.
We have hope! America we have hope! What a rousing speech! There are no more tears for America's decline in my eyes but tears of joy for a brighter future!
Thank God for the leaders he sends to us at the right time! Paul Ryan will be vice president and president in 2020. We need that many years to get this country back away from the socialist path paved by FDR, LBJ, Clinton and now Obama. In 4 years Obama has put this country on the brink of collapse, but the Tea Party rose up! Starting with Palin in 2008 to Ryan in 2012! We will win! Romney/Ryan 2012, We CAN DO THIS!
