with those heckles at times drowned out by chants of "U-S-A."

Paul Ryan is here to dismantle the United States.

U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!

Honest question, what's Ryan's stance on farm and ethanol subsidies?
 
2012-08-13 04:57:07 PM
Someone needs to post the "your're not helping" meme for these hecklers. Yelling is stupid but climbing up on stage is farking pathetic.

On a warm summer's eve
A campaign bound for nowhere
I met up with an old man
We were both too tired to derp
So we took turns starin'
At the teatards in the cornfields
Then herpin' overtook us
And he began to shout

He said, "Son I've made my life
Out of nothin' but my bootstraps
And no one ever helped me
Even pay for Medicare
So if you don't mind me sayin'
I can see you're tired of muslins
And for a charge of my Hoverround
I'll give you some advice."

+1 for this gem. -1 for putting that farking song in my head.

You broke even which is the best that you can hope for

A quick look around finds nothing specific. It's probably safe to assume they would be cut considering he wanted to basically halve the Federal budget.
 
2012-08-13 05:37:26 PM
Ryan had barely begun speaking when a woman shouted, "Are you going to cut Medicare?"

She has to ask? Also replace the word "cut" with "get rid of". But it's OK because it won't affect current old people, just future old people....like us.

You're assuming principles. These guys are potentially key donors so probably he's fine with keeping them.

FTFA: UPDATE: According to Sergeant Scott Bright, Iowa State Patrol Information Officer, three individuals were removed from Ryan's event, but were not kicked out of the state fair. None of them was arrested.

Farking tenses, how do they work?

Yes, everything is stupid, everything is pathetic, everything makes the center and left look bad, no one should do anything but very quietly post partial rebuttals on blogs. Preferably blogs with no subscribers because we wouldn't want the farking right-wing pieces of trash to think we were rude to them.
 
2012-08-13 06:26:37 PM
I'm just surprised they hadn't cordoned off Ryan's speech into the politician's stump area with every screened and/or pre-approved for entrance and a Free Speech Zone for the hecklers on the other side of the fairgrounds.
 
2012-08-13 06:28:02 PM
He seems like a personable enough guy. Too bad he looks too much like Anthony Weiner for me to vote for.

Americans should show up by the bus load to protest this guy. If he has his ways the common man is screwed.
 
2012-08-13 06:34:15 PM
Ryan spoke for only 13 of the customary 20 minutes

"i can cut this speaking engagement by 35%."
 
Ehh
2012-08-13 06:34:52 PM
Sad tag? How about a This Is What Democracy Looks Like tag? Heckle away, Kenny. The man wants to turn your Social Security and Medicare over to the humanitarians on Wall Street. Go ahead and make a fuss.

1. it's mildly concerning to me that the secret service would allow them to make their way onto the stage. Seems like it could have gone terribly wrong if they were violent. (I'm assuming Ryan now has secret service protection since he's now part of the campaign).

2. It's hilarious how all these dolts can come up with is USA USA USA whenever they want to chant. Yea... you're definitely in the US, so what?

It doesn't matter what the content of your message is. You could say:

I want to drown some puppies right here in the GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD, THE USA!!

... and the idiots in the crowd will only hear USA and start chanting...

Paul Ryan is a douche, and has stated that he can barely make ends meet with his income of around 500k. He stated that since he can barely make ends meet now, he would be worse off if the Bust tax cuts ended. I can't find the quote, but the dude obviously is a dumbass.

LOL I remember that.... but don't worry, the Obama campaign will find that quote - it'll make a great ad!

Ryan better get used to this. "No New/ No Old" isn't going to go over well with the "No New/ Fix Old" crowd.

Can this clown get through any public speaking event without having to rely on police to cull the crowd for him? Since when is heckling something the Iowa State Patrol should be dealing with?

Go figure, jackbooted thugs* on the public dime working as legbreakers for a fascist demagogue.

There are quite a few angry white baby boomers around here who support wind power, ethanol subsidies, workers' unions, and don't passionately hate state employees and public school teachers.

Meanwhile, over at the Western side of the state, I was at an Obama rally (see screengrabs from my video). There were a handful of Teabaggers who came over from Nebraska to do the obvious trolling from across the street, but they were drowned out by chants of "FOUR MORE YEARS!", so they only hung around for about 15 minutes and left with their tails between their legs. They knew they were vastly outnumbered and outclassed here.

In short, O was really in ass-kicking form during his speech. It was the first public one he has made since Ryan got picked, and despite him considering Ryan as a good person, the Ryan tax plan was verbally torn a second one before a live audience.

You mean the tea baggers were holding a protest across the street and not climbing on the dais and then getting arrested?
