SO not only will Obama be able to point to Romney as wanting to raise taxes on the middle class in order to benefit the wealthy and largest businesses, he can add "destroying medicare in order to benefit the wealthy and largest businesses" to it too.

Brilliant.

Unfortunately many people who depend on medicare will support the Ryan plan because it won't effect them and that's all that matters. They got theirs.

Crap. I forgot that bribe to old people about how they'll still get the fantastic wonderful medicare that he needs to destroy because it's ruining everything.

I have a theory:

Much like he did at Bain, Mitt Romney started with something that was a little weak but had a lot of promise.

He's gotten lots of money from people like Rove and Sheldon Adelson

So why wouldn't Romney do what he does best? Take the money, suck everyone dry, and leave the Republican party a rusty useless shell while Romney jets off to the Bahamas?

They did after Cobert went to town on Pawlenty's a couple days ago, now all of the contenders are on semi lockdown, but still editable with permission. Ryan's page was edited 10 times between Jul 30 and Aug 6 and then 50 times yesterday and today, that's quite a spike. There is a similar spike on Rubio's page's edits as well, but a lot of that was semi vandalism and resulting corrections, not so much on the other candidates pages.

Ah, I suppose you can't lock them down completely, as in no edits at all. You need to be able to correct the last round of vandalism, which leaves an period of time open for new incorrect edits, which requires further correction ... and then by the time it's free of typos it doesn't matter anyway.

When it's time to double-down on the derp -- and the VP candidate will definitely have to double-down -- I just don't see Pawlenty doing it.

And you found out he's completely toxic.

It's worse than that. Romney is using the The Producers strategy. Which is why his campaign reminds me so much of Springtime for Hitler.

This would either result in a disaster for the GOP or a disaster for the country. If Obama won, there is absolutely no way the Republican Party could say they were not "conservative" enough; Mitt Romney would have effectively run on the most "conservative" budget plan ever passed by a chamber of Congress that would accomplish almost all of their wet dreams, and the country would have given this plan the finger. OTOH, if Romney actually won, he'd be forced to actually implement that budget.

No way in hell it'll be Petraeus. Not only has he unequivocally said he never wants to run for any political office, he knows his history and what happened with the last retired general to make a national office run (Wesley Clark bombed out in 2004). Apart from that, I get the impression that he realizes he would probably be bad at the job in comparison with his performances in Iraq, Afghanistan, at CENTCOM, and as the head of the CIA.

It gets him out of the House, but then he would be granted a vote in the Senate. Ultimately I think that would be the worse outcome. Though if Rmoney picks Ryan, he has an even slimmer chance of winning the election anyways. . .

I'm convinced that Romney's entire campaign is really some kind of elaborate tax dodge. The way he campaigns seems to indicate he doesnt actually want to be President, so that's the only other motive I can think of.

/Maybe he thinks the IRS won't bother looking too closely at a failed campaign. Sort of a political Producers.

Nate Silver has a 27.5% chance. Paul Ryan has a 36% approval rating...in Wisconsin.

Serious Black: Sabyen91: Serious Black: If Obama won, there is absolutely no way the Republican Party could say they were not "conservative" enough

Oh, you kidder!

/They will always say it.

I know, I'm kidding myself by merely suggesting that the GOP would moderate itself in the wake of a loss. In reality, they'll probably outright refuse to negotiate at all and basically shut down the government with the sole exception of trying to impeach him for the treasonous crime of Presidenting while Black.


Yup. Romney is the most liberalist moderate Massachusetts flip-flopper this side of Sweden. If he loses, it's full-press conservatism from here on out. Remember how crazy they got last time? (Hint: the bleeding Tea Party was formed.) Yeah... it's gonna be much worse this time, and it's all going to be pinned squarely on the fact that they ran a moderate candidate, whom they never liked from the beginning.

So what you're saying is, if Obama wins we should expect the moderate the Democrats put up in 2016 to trounce the psychopath the Republicans choose in 2016.

Actually, I expect the more level headed Republicans(if there are any left) to win the nomination, with the larger derp brigade not bothering. Hell, I wouldn't put it past the GOP to turn all of the primary voting into a beauty pageant like Missouri's, with the bosses choosing the real winner.

vernonFL: I have a theory:

Much like he did at Bain, Mitt Romney started with something that was a little weak but had a lot of promise.

He's gotten lots of money from people like Rove and Sheldon Adelson

So why wouldn't Romney do what he does best? Take the money, suck everyone dry, and leave the Republican party a rusty useless shell while Romney jets off to the Bahamas?

Ryan would be a great choice. He's a policy and budget wonk who is very articulate and thinks well on his feet.

Though the VP choice usually offers little voting advantage, Ryan's popularity in Wisconsin just might make a difference in that swing state.

Getting libs in a froth with their claims he wants to unhook granny's oxygen tank will help expose the fact he was one of the few voices in Congress with the political sack to tackle the massive budget hole Bush and Obama have created.

But he does have that Eddie Munster thing going.

Brilliant.

How about Romney just tells us what he plans to do other than not being Obama. We could debate that. Ryan's plan has been debated over and over and has been found lacking. It would be an anchor to an already drowning Romney.

Ryan beats a sharp stick in the eye, and he'll get out more voters than Portman or Pawlenty. Not enough for Romney to win, but it might prevent an utter collapse along the entire front with the close House and Senate races.

This. I live in Canada and as much as I can sometimes hate my job (mostly like it though), I know I can always quit or if I get laid off or fired, my family's health care is not affected. I think people in the US would be so much happier (less stressed) if their health wasn't linked to their employment. It would have a measurable health benefit on its own basis.

I also wonder the type of abuse (perhaps sexual harrassment) employees allow themselves to tolerate because they have sick family at home that depend on for health insurance. Many parents would put up with almost anything to ensure health care for their children. That's farked up and no way for a society to function.

At the height of the convention, with the eyes of the nation upon him, Mitt Romney will take the stage with an awkward smile and a gleam in his eyes. He'll fidget nervously, then start and stop his prepared speech a few times. Republicans in the crowd will start look at each other, some in fear and some with resigned acceptance that even the least offensive shiat-flavored ice cream is still edible if libs have to eat it too. People will rise angrily in their seats. Some will shrug to themselves. Eventually a sweat will break out across Romney's forehead. His eyes will dart back and forth across the convention. With slumping shoulders, he'll lean in towards the mic for one last chance at redemption...

"Tank you very much."

Then Mitt Romney will appear to give birth to Andy Kaufman live on stage.

He'll back over to the mic, smile, and deadpan "So... what'd I miss?"

ftfy

Dismantling medicare and leaving the rump to deal with old people who arent dead yet would affect them enormously. Ever tried to be part of a dead system with no new users, gradually winding down money, providers jumping ship to the replacement etc etc? not nice, and even more not nice if you are sick, old and stupid.

It's1852. The Whigs will pick try to appease/co-opt the Know-Nothings, and that will be the final nail in their coffin. From their ashes a new party will arise, and their candidate, just as with John Fremont in '56, will be dogged by rumors spread by nativists: that he wasn't born in this country, that he belongs to *that* religion. 2020 will be 1860, with a wonderful leader who will offend the derp brigade, and then it gets interesting.

NowhereMon: They did after Cobert went to town on Pawlenty's a couple days ago, now all of the contenders are on semi lockdown, but still editable with permission. Ryan's page was edited 10 times between Jul 30 and Aug 6 and then 50 times yesterday and today, that's quite a spike. There is a similar spike on Rubio's page's edits as well, but a lot of that was semi vandalism and resulting corrections, not so much on the other candidates pages.


Probably doing some spoofing on the other likely VP pick's pages as a red herring.

Regardless, go ahead and pick this empty suit. There's so much dirt on this guy if you look at the shady stuff he's done locally in Wisconsin.

Besides, just picture how badly Biden would tear him apart during debates.

Paul Ryan wants to have a career and has already publicly suggested someone else would be a better fit.

I'm guessing either Nikki Haley or Rob Portman.

at this point it's a better option to allow RONPAUL's epic takeover attempt at the RNC succeed

Goodfella: Besides, just picture how badly Biden would tear him apart during debates.


My guess is that he'll cry about how unfairly he's being treated like he cried about people calling his BS voucher program a voucher program.

I have no idea why you made it either, but there it is. We have to accept this new era with your imgur thingy in it.

In these days of extreme political divisiveness, we really need a team that can see both sides of an issue. There are so many issues that divide Americans, as a people, and we need to be able to come together. Pro Choice/Pro Life? Assault-weapons ban/pro-2nd amendment? Government health insurance/private insurance?

These are complex issues, and we really need the executive branch to be able to see both sides.

That's why the perfect running mate is Tim Yenmor. The Mit Romney/Tim Yenmor team can easily see both sides of any issue and bring us all together on common ground.

It just makes sense if you think about it both ways.

An Eddie Munster hair cut and he wants to gut Social Security. What's not to dislike?

Serious Black: I know, I'm kidding myself by merely suggesting that the GOP would moderate itself in the wake of a loss. In reality, they'll probably outright refuse to negotiate at all and basically shut down the government with the sole exception of trying to impeach him for the treasonous crime of Presidenting while Black.

At some point, the republicans will have to have that experiment. The Derpistani wing won't believe the epic failure of a Derpistani ticket until it's proven in the voting booth.

/and even then they'll scream fraud

Or brand Santorum and Bachmann RINOs and say they would have won if they'd had REAL Conservatives.

There is no depth to derp.

I stand corrected. You're right. Facts and evidence mean nothing to the citizens of Derpistan.

drewsclues: Because nothing says excite the base more than voting for a mormon AND a catholic. Yeah, that'll work.


Well, he's not a very good Catholic. If that helps.

Well watching Fox News..Dont hate. And they want Ryan and since Fox basically runs the GOP im guessing Ryan is the pick

NowhereMon: Well, someone has been editing Ryan's wikipedia page pretty furiously over the last couple days, maybe Wonkette is onto something.


And there we go. Ryan is the pick.
