This is without a doubt the most unfriendly audience Ryan has spoken to as VP candidate. Audience alterantes between silence and boos.

Old people have been dealing with politicians for over 60 years. They know bullsh*t when they hear it.

"You look just like my grandson, but my grandson is an ANGEL and would never DREAM of farking with my Medicare! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

LOL. They were booing the shiat out of him. It's almost as if they knew he was lying or something.
 
2012-09-21 01:19:22 PM
This campaign is the joke that never ends. Who thought that putting the moron who wants to destroy Medicare in a room full of senior citizens was a good idea?

Yup!

As we walk out of AARP, an attendee mutters to his companion, "it was a bunch of bull."

Ryan speaking to the AARP. That takes some brass.
 
2012-09-21 01:21:42 PM
All my Republican friends are going to blame this loss on the media not covering Obama's horrible job. They have a built-in excuse for why the worst candidate run by either party in 60 years is losing.
 
2012-09-21 01:22:14 PM
They were saying "Booooo-yah on that sub-three-hour marathon time and 6% body fat!"

Good point. Ryan and Santorum are evil, but they're not the coward that Mitt is. Even if they're crazy, I have a bit of respect for anybody who actually tends to say what they really believe to whoever will listen.
 
2012-09-21 01:29:58 PM
Well, those old geezers better just get ready. Whether it's through Obamacare or Ryan, we're coming to get them. We have robots to keep fueled, damnit.
 
2012-09-21 01:32:54 PM
Ryan probably thought he could convince them, and if he couldn't, he could at least take them all on.
 
2012-09-21 01:39:10 PM
And a CNN article reporting what he said without fact checking it. Liberal journalism at work.

Deep in an underground bunker somewhere, a couple of RNC staffers are having the following conversation:

Staffer 1: "OK, let's just reset for a moment. What do we have policy wise?"
Staffer 2: "Let's go down the list. Taxes."
Staffer 1: "Most people hate those ideas. Anything else?"
Staffer 2: "Foreign policy."
Staffer 1: "Hated. Somehow people remember George W Bush and those two wars."
Staffer 2: "Welfare queens"
Staffer 1: "You mean the 47%?"
Staffer 2: "Isn't it 100% now? We made it 100%."
Staffer 1: "He really didn't sell it well."
Staffer 2: "We could court the n*gger haters."
Staffer 1: "Sewn up. Not enough votes."
Staffer 2: "Immigration."
Staffer 1: "Mostly same as n*gger haters. And not enough votes."
Staffer 2: "Guns."
Staffer 1: "Mostly same as the n*gger haters. And not enough votes."
Staffer 2: "Old people, our bread and butter."
Staffer 1: "Did you watch that AARP video? One guy threw his walker at Ryan, he was so mad. He ran out of there faster than his supposed 3hr marathon time."
Staffer 2: "Debt and deficits."
Staffer 1: "People seem to remember we ran up a lot of it. Also, the Democrats added spending cuts to their platform."
Staffer 2: "F*ck. That was a good one. Economy?"
Staffer 1: "Improving incrementally."
Staffer 2: "What about clowns? People like clowns. We have plenty of them in our party."
Staffer 1: "People fear clowns."
Staffer 2: "Abortion?"
Staffer 1: "If we go that route we will get legitimately raped."
Staffer 2: "We need a game changer. What if we replaced Mitt with a robot?"
Staffer 1: "You aren't serious. Dude, we did that years ago."
Staffer 2: "People like polar bears. Maybe some pictures of Mitt Romney with some cute cubs."
Staffer 1: "Polar bears are dying off at an amazing level due to global warming, which we don't believe in."
Staffer 2: "I don't understand why people hate our policies so much. Do they want a job?"
Staffer 1: "I think they want some sort of...society, where....where...people...help...each other?"
Staffer 2: "Eww, gross."
Staffer 1: "I know, right? It's like....ok follow me here...we should have ideas that are, what's the word?"
Staffer 2: "Good?"
Staffer 1: "Good! Yes. Good for people. Good for people! GOP 2012: We like people."
Staffer 2: "They don't want to be liked, they want us to give them a handout...or, what was it Obama said, a hand up?"
Staffer 1: "OK, OK, here's a better one. GOP 2012: We want to touch you in a good way."
Staffer 2: "Brilliant."

Summary of just today's Romney fail:

-Ryan boo'd throughout speech to AARP
-Obama cheered at speech to AARP
-McConnell runs away from press instead of defending Romney
-Ann Romney gets mad at Republicans for throwing Mitt under bus
-Romney release 2011 tax return artificially manipulated not to not make him a liar

I've been checking out Drudge pretty regularly, lately. His headlines differ substantially from every other political reporting site. If Drudge were your sole source of news, you'd almost certainly think that Romney is winning the election in a walk. The headlines at Drudge are the absolute opposite of what's being reported by the NYT, Washington Post, Politico -- hell, even Fox "News."

In other words, Drudge is shilling awfully hard for Romney. And, he's shilling for Romney awfully.

Any guesses on why a closeted gay man would be the principal cheerleader for a candidate who's campaigning to, at best, keep him in the closet -- and, at worst, criminalize his behavior? This is a serious question.

Probably on the payroll. Romney probably remembers Drudge from when he 'took down' Clinton, the staff thinks he is still relevant. Money talks.

So Ryan goes to talk to old, mostly white people in Louisiana and gets BOOED?

When the GOP is getting old white people in the South to boo the shiat out of them during an election year, something has gone horribly wrong.

Horribly wrong for them, I mean. Not for me. The world is always a better place when Republicans are hated enough to be taken out of power.

nice, although with R&R polling at 47% equal with Obama, not sure people remember anything outside of a year.
 
2012-09-21 04:47:56 PM
As Romney often does, Ryan is expected to take a swipe at the Democratic incumbent's reelection slogan. The released excerpts include, "But you know President Obama's slogan, right? Forward. Forward into a future where seniors are denied the care they earned because a bureaucrat decided it wasn't worth the money."

I swear I have been paying attention the last few months, but I still can't help but be shocked by the brazenness in that statement.

mrshowrules: Ryan speaking to the AARP. That takes some brass.


I'm not familiar with the exact details of Ryan's medicare plans. I thought he exempted oldies (those over 55) from the "cuts" (his private voucher system). So basically the people that paid the least (current retirees) would receive the most and the people that paid the most (the rest of us) would receive the least. Is that not right?

In essence, but there are two main problems: 1) Most seniors don't want their children to be screwed. and 2) The changes wind up screwing over the over 55s anyway, because of a reduced pool and some other technical issues. There are some good writes ups floating around, but I can't find one right now. Maybe someone knows of one. Long story short, Seniors hated the plan anyway, even though they get theirs

Those polite old people in the audience yelled out "liar" several times when Ryan criticized Pres. Obama.
 
2012-09-21 05:10:16 PM
you know, I wonder if they actually thought that old people would be perfectly happy with a system where their kids and grandkids would get farked over? are they that divorced from reality?
