Cheney may have been the most important VP in history, but that was due to his many years/jobs in DC and the wars that started in those years. If it had been 8yrs of peacetime, Cheney would have given a bunch of speeches and gone to funerals too.

Cheney's "energy plan" assured that he would not preside over much peacetime. He wasn't brought in to balance a ticket. He was brought in to get a job done.

Oh, yeah. That's a brilliant thought.

And just look at all of the free oil the US has gotten.

"Regardless, it's clear that the Obama stimulus did nothing to stimulate the economy, and now the President is asking to do it all over again."

No, absolutely nothing. The unemployment rate is still in double figures. We have had negative job growth every month that Obama has been president. The stock market has crashed several times recently. GM went bankrupt and doesn't exist any more.

Oh how I long for the days of Bush's economic prosperity.

"I'm going to run as not-Obama in order to capitalize on the dislike of the sitting President. All I have to do is say nothing of any substance. This is the best job ever! Oh, I need a running mate? What are the polls saying I lack? Convictions and solid policy proposals? Eh, tap that Ryan guy, he's got moxy, and some ideas that will give the Democrats a case of the fits!"

"Wait a minute... my inability to take a concrete position on any issue means I'll be painted with the brush that my running mate has been sticking up his butt? Time out! Time out! Mulligan! Unfaaaaaaaaaaaaair, negatiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive campaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiign!"

MeinRS6: VP Ryan isn't going to shape the budget or pass a budget. He isn't going to add or decrease funds to Medicare or Obamacare. He's going to do what Romney tells him to do. And Romney is half-a-lib, so I don't see the big concern from the left about Ryan. It's good politics to go after the guy, but in the end the VP job still isn't worth a bucket of warm spit. What has Biden done besides be a jackass?


Sure, but VP Ryan is just one medical emergency away from becoming P Ryan. So yeah, it's worth noting what he believes, and what he'd be likely to do if such an emergency took place.

Bhruic: Sure, but VP Ryan is just one medical emergency away from becoming P Ryan. So yeah, it's worth noting what he believes, and what he'd be likely to do if such an emergency took place.


Picking Ryan as VP is a pretty sure sign that Romney isn't in control of the campaign anymore.

farkityfarker: All this and only 5 days in.

Those Republicans who are saying that Obama should replace Biden should probably be begging Romney to replace Ryan instead.


One conservative group is going all out to replace Romney.

And that was just within 3 weeks. Biden is a badass.

doyner: RexTalionis: "After having these letters called to my attention I checked into them, and they were treated as constituent service requests in the same way matters involving Social Security or Veterans Affairs are handled," Ryan said in a statement. "This is why I didn't recall the letters earlier. But they should have been handled differently, and I take responsibility for that.

Have you noticed that when asked about his earlier request, Ryan didn't take responsibility for telling an untruth, but rather he took responsibility for actually making the requests in the first place?

What I noticed was that he didn't know what the fark was going on in his office with respect to a major political topic in which he was a key player.


He was too busy reading and deciding he didn't agree whatever the flavor of the day was and the flavor was stimulus, sweet stimulus....

He just needed to provide proof that it would go to support a union and he was good to go.

Dr. Mojo PhD: When a Republican:

1. Has no confidence in their own policies
2. Tacitly admits that the Democrats had the right policies
3. Which tacitly admits that his own policies were wrong
4. Which perforce means that he isn't capable of doing anything on his own and just constantly gainsays the people whose policies he knows work for political clout


1. Obama is running on his record, particularly ObamaCare, right?
2. Obama was completely against the troop surge, but then the withdrawal time table on Iraq and his ability to withdraw troops on a 'good' note depended on it.
3. As this is Obama we're talking about, he's never going to admit that, he's just going to take credit for something he didn't do.
4. The fact that you're trying to say this about a Republican while supporting Obama makes you a laughing stock of anyone who knows what is going on.

You know, Rush is right. Voting is not a right, it's a privilege. Women should not be allowed to sabotage elections, and neither should those too weak minded to take what God is trying to give them (i.e. libtards and RINOs).

I like how MeinRS6 is pretending like no VP has ever become president or had any influence over the policies of the executive branch. Here's a free tip man: When your entire argument hinges on completely ignoring history you might want to shut the fark up.

So are you saying Cheney started those wars?

This is the same type of guy who howls about the evils of Teh Ghey while banging guys in his spare time, or rants about abortion even though his college GF got one, thus saving his future political career. I seriously doubt this will be the last sad/hilarious revelation we hear about Paul Ryan.
 
2012-08-17 03:21:06 AM  
I'm surprised Ryan didn't have security haul the reporter away for daring to challenge him on a policy issue.

Inaccurate.

Probably accurate.

Ryan is smart, but he hasn't done all of the things that Cheney had done when he became VP. Not by a long shot. With Biden we have gone back to having the VP slot for a dufus, just like Gore under Clinton. Would Ryan reverse that trend and be some kind of power player in a Romney administration? I would look at history for what the most likely answer to that question is.


no he's only been in politics since he was, what, early 20-something?

amusing to see one of the most important "up-and-coming" good-looking-for-dc gop power players getting some kind of downgrade by becoming vp

is this the official playbook now that kill-kill-kill-the-medicare will be thoroughly exposed?

So they've just given up to the point that, "Well the VP doesn't really do anything so it doesn't matter if he sucks" is their talking point. You might want to shorten that a little for the bumper sticker.

You continueto avoid the issue here. Paul Ryan, bootstrappy Ayn Rand disciple and scorner of all things government stimulus, not only requested stimulus money, but actively sought it out. And then when confronted on the hypocrisy, lied about it. Or are you actually buying his lame ass excuse?

He adds yet another layer of obfuscation to a campaign team which finds it stunningly difficult to tell the truth. It's says a great deal about what this candidate would be like if he ever actually becomes President.

I suspect this is more a case of plausible deniability than not knowing what was going on in his offce. Any time you're going to completely abandon your stated principles, it's always nice to have an overzealous staffer to blame for handling "constituent service requests in the same way matters involving Social Security or Veterans Affairs are handled."

hubiestubert: At some point, these cats have got to realize that records ARE actually kept.

Romney seems to have difficulty in understanding that words aren't just deleted when he can't see them any longer. What is astounding is that these folks have convinced themselves that everyone has goldfish-like memories, and to be fair, there are some in the media who seem bound and determined to prove exactly that--and to be fairer, they are paid to keep their memories somewhat fluid when it comes to inconvenient facts--and Ryan appears to be infected with the same malady...

In the end, it shows a disrespect for their electorate, and the people that they want to represent. Or rather, that they say that they want to represent. The interests that they actually represent do have keen memories, but at this point, they have to bring out the bread and circuses to at least appear like they have more interests at heart...


I used to think this as well, but I more attributed it to older politicians not realizing how easy it is to reserach things now. Now I think it's just them being arrogant morons.

They're so used to dealing with a friendly incompetent press that doesn't call them out on their lies.
