PAUL RYAN

 PAULRYANPAULRYANPAULRYAN 
..............etc. etc etc. 
OUT OF THE BALLPARK.  Not much else to say.................have you got anything?


Oh. I have one more thing;   GOV SUSANA MARTINEZ....she made me cry.    America needs more Latinas who change from Democrat to Republican and LOVE THIS COUNTRY for all they can do here, not what it can do for them.  God bless her.   She's a rock star....as smart as they get, beautifully confident and a patriot.


(as a kind of creepy aside, I just Googled PAUL RYAN IMAGES and they don't have one of him giving his speech, almost 3 hours after he ended it.  They managed to include a picture of Mrs Ryan holding a kid while he spoke, but I guess Google just can't manage to find one picture of Paul Ryan up there talking......   really creepy.)

I LOVED Susana's entire speech, especially when she told the story that concluded with, "well I'll be damned, We're Republicans!"" I think that is a realization many and many more have made during the obama hostage crisis.

I loved Condi's speech also. Absolutely brilliant. I looked at my wife and said, "these Republicans sure hate women, don't they?" This entire convention put on display The ridiculousness of the entire democrat fluke theme.

I don't know about you, but I am FIRED UP! After Ryan. "We can do this!"

Tim Pawlenty, Susana Martinez, and the headliners, Condoleezza Rice and Paul Ryan.

What Great Speeches! What A Night!! They Were ALL Sensational!
The Progressive bloggers must be Constipated this morning!
But who cares? If these morons had any brains, they wouldn't be Progressive's in the first place.

Loving it..

I admit that I didn't catch it... But I'm going to have to find the highlights. It sounds like the speeches were great!

Ryan hit it wayyyy out of the park last night! Without a doubt, the best speech I've EVER heard! And without a doubt and Condi Rice was really great, and btw she gave that whole speech without a Teleprompter!
I’ll admit that I didn't vote for Obama but when he won I actually hoped he would succeed. I wanted him succeed, I hoped he would succeed and come through for our country. But he hasn't and he's failed and I can see he is not the man for the job.

WE have a presidents that wants to be reelected but cant run on his last 4 years record, so why give him another 4 years? Its time that we the people start demanding it from him and the media to start reporting it of him, Obama had two years of majority in the house and the senate. Why did nothing get done then. His policies have failed. It's time for "ANYTHING BUT OBAMA".
And I hope that the "ignorant" voters in this country WON’T put him back in office.

Ducky's here said...

I particularly liked the one where Ryan blamed Obama for a GM plant that closed under Bush.

Ed Bonderenka said...

Duck:
Ryan:
"A lot of guys I went to high school with worked at that GM plant. Right there at that plant, candidate Obama said: “I believe that if our government is there to support you … this plant will be here for another hundred years.” That’s what he said in 2008."
Truth:
Janesville GM factory was in operation in June, 2009...5 months into the Obama presidency.

Joe said...

The Quack said: "... a GM plant that closed under Bush."

See, leftists believe what they say is true because they say it, not because it is actually true.

Condoleezza Rice and Governor Martinez were electrfying!

So much for the liberal painting of Republicans as anti-woman and racists.

It is actually liberals who practice economic slavery evry day!

All of the speeches were actually more interesting and substantive than anything else on TV.

Now if Jeb Bush gets up there and starts chastizing the Party, as he is said to be planning, I think he should be invited to go join Charlie Crist.

His stock has fallen through the floor in my book.

Liberalmann said...

Ryan's speech was great. For Dems! He showed Americans that the GOP is really a party of small minded, spiteful liars who really do hate average Americans. And he's a liar:

http://mediamatters.org/resear...

Ryan Bashed The Stimulus That He Tapped Into For Local Business

Ryan:"The Stimulus Was A Case Of Political
Patronage, Corporate Welfare, And Cronyism At
Their Worst." During his speech, Ryan criticized the
stimulus, calling it "the first troubling sign" of the Obama administration.

FACT: Ryan Sought And Received Stimulus Funds
For Businesses In His District. The Boston
Globe reported that Ryan sought stimulus funds for local businesses even while he was criticizing the stimulus as wasteful in 2009:

FACT: Ryan Forced To Acknowledge Stimulus Requests After Denying He Sent Them. ABC News
reported that Ryan was forced to acknowledge requesting stimulus funds for businesses
in his district.

Ryan:Blamed Obama For Janesville Auto Plant Closing That Occurred Under Bush

Ryan:Falsely Suggested Obama Is At Fault For
Hometown Plant Closure. During his speech, Ryan said:

FACT: Janesville Plant Closed Before Obama's Inauguration. An August 16 Detroit News article reported that Ryan had inaccurately attacked Obama for failing to keep the Janesville plant open and noted that the plant's closure predated Obama's presidency:

FACT:
Obama Never Promised To Keep The Plant
Open. Moments after Ryan's speech, Politifact-Wisconsin rated Ryan's statement as false, noting the President had never promised to keep the plant
open:

FACT: Center For Automotive Research: By 2010, The Auto Rescue Saved Nearly 1.5 Million Jobs.
In November 2010, The Wall Street Journal reported that a study from the Center for Automotive Research found that the auto rescue
saved well over 1 million jobs:

No matter what happens with Government Motors, the taxpayer intervention in the auto business appears to be a win for Americans, a new research report asserts.

The Center for Automotive Research said today the government's bailouts of the U.S.
auto industry spared more than 1.14 million jobs last year alone, and prevented
"additional personal income losses" of nearly $97 billion combined
for this year and last.

Another
314,400 jobs were saved this year thanks to the $80 billion in taxpayer
lifelines extended to GM, Chrysler, and the GMAC and Chrysler Financial
financing businesses, CAR said. [The Wall Street Journal,

Ryan: Blamed Obama For Bowles-Simpson Plan That He Helped Kill

Ryan: outed Commission's "Urgent Report" Before
Criticizing Obama For Doing "Exactly Nothing."
In Rep. Paul Ryan's RNC speech he attacked President Obama over the debt,claiming the Simpson-Bowles commission "came back with an urgentreport" but that Obama "did exactly nothing" with the plan.

FACT: Ryan "Was A Pivotal Figure In Killing"
The Bowles-Simpson Plan. An August 14 Bloomberg article noted that Ryan "was a pivotal figure in killing the 2010 Bowles-Simpson
agreement," pointing out that "Ryan led a bloc of three House Republicans who denied the additional votes needed" to send the plan to
Congress for a vote. From Bloomberg:

Representative Paul Ryan was a pivotal figure in killing the 2010 Bowles-Simpson agreement,
which Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney now points to as a model
for putting America's fiscal house in order.

FACT:
Ryan "Ended Up As An Energetic Participant
In The Ideological Stalemate That Doomed"
Bowles-Simpson. In an August 15 article, Politico called Ryan
"an energetic participant in the ideological stalemate that doomed [the
Bowles-Simpson commission's] work to failure." From Politico:

Ryan: Dishonestly Blamed Obama For U.S. Credit Downgrade

FACT:
The Economy Obama Inherited Was Hemorrhaging
Jobs. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics

Fact: The Rating Agency That Downgraded The
U.S. Was A "Key Enabler Of The
Financial Meltdown."

Always On Watch said...

I smell victory coming in November.

I've sensed that smell of victory before: 1960 (Dems/JFK), 1980 (GOP/Reagan), 1996 (Dems/Clinton), and 2008 (Dems/Obama).

You know, I'm normally fast asleep by 9:00 P.M. because I get up in the morning no later than 4:30 A.M. to begin caregiving tasks.

But last night I fired up the coffee part and stayed up to watch all of the RNC coverage. EXCITING!

Always On Watch said...

All of a sudden, Liberalmann is amassing facts -- or thinks he is, anyway.

Fredd said...

Like Always On Watch, I too smell not only a victory in November, I smell a LANDSLIDE victory.

Z said...

DARTH..well said.. Yes, where WERE those chains "we" are all going to put "them" back in? Odd that there were so many Black faces in the audience; maybe they let them unlock the chains for those few hours? :-)

DaBlade, yes, we SURE DO HATE WOMEN! And these aren't women who come out and speak as shills; these are women who have been Sec of State, women governors, etc etc......amazing bunch of women.

I"m pretty fired up, but I know the media will try very hard to emphasize only the negatives.
And that, as much as Obama TOTALLY LIED so many times during his campaign, and since, that doesn't get discussed.
The left should be UTTERLY ashamed of themselves but they seem not to know shame.

Brooke,you have GOT to at least read transcripts, but Ryan's delivery was fabulous..and the reactions! It's got to be on YOuTube?

I don't have time to respond right now anymore, but I will remind everyone how much Erskine thought the world of Paul Ryan after having worked with him....good stuff.

It was a was incredible night. Paul Ryan hit a grand slam completely out of the park. Condi Rice was so beautiful and eloquent and spoke without the help of a teleprompter. I thought all of the speakers were awesome! Portman, Pawlenty, Huckabee, Martinez and yes, especially Paul Ryan!
Both Condi Rice and Paul Ryan were exceptional! Paul and Condi both exude such authority and integrity...they both inspired me, and made me feel optimistic!
Ryan will be absolutely wonderful as our Vice president. Paul Ryan is everything that Barack Obama is not, intelligent, honest, humble, and real, someone who we can believe in. Especially after the one we currently have who makes me feel ashamed. January 20th, 2013 can't come soon enough for me.
The Liberals are so dumbfounded that they can’t find anything that makes any sense to write.
I’m wondering how soon it’s going to be before we see Joe Biden dropped off the ticket due to health reasons, or because he “wants to spend more time with his family”... Yeah right!

Thanks, Ed. Ducky is gone for the rest of the day.

I didn't watch it. I wish I had. I'll have to catch up on Youtube.

There's so much wrong in this piece I had to post it...you'll all be able to dissect it better than I have time to!

It's almost hilarious to watch the mainstream media struggling to get Paul Ryan DOWN DOWN DOWN. He didn't give them much leeway, did he

FrogBurger said...

I started watching but I must say all those speeches have been very boring to me. I'm wondering who's writing all that stuff b/c it's pretty dull and unsurprising. I quit half way.

I think it's more for people who haven't been paying attention and didn't know people like Ryan.

To me it's a major snooze.

Anonymous said...

FROM Z:

A MAJOR SNOOZE??
FB! the speech got better and better and it was the clever way he described things that was the clincher...he wasn't a hack with "Are you better off now than you were 4 years ago?"
I mean, he said that in 100 ways, but they were KILLER clever ways.

My fave line was when he told young people "you shouldn't have to be still living at your parents' home staring up at a faded Obama poster wishing you could get a job and get out"

I paraphrase, but.... !!

FrogBurger said...

Z, i guess I listen to too much politics so nothing's surprising to me. That's maybe why.

I was actually upset at the medicare line b/c he promised medicare for everyone. But I thought the plan was to allow younger generations to opt out.

So to me, I'm getting mixed signals and it's not a good sign.

I understand it from a political standpoint but I think we may very well have to deal with compassionate conservatism again. And we know where it ended. That's my concern.

Anonymous said...

FROM Z:

Yes, FB, I fear there will be a little compassionate conservatism, but we'll get raked over the coals for not wanting that, by the left, of course.
"YOU DON'T WANT TO BE COMPASSIONATE?"

NO!, too much GOVERNMENT COMPASSION got us into the place we're in in the first place..

Seems to me that Ryan mentioning Medicare for everybody doesn't exclude younger people opting out...maybe that wasn't the place to discuss every "opt out", etc? I hope that's why he didn't specifically mention that.

Did you see where Obama's ads are enticing more and more to welfare, reminding Americans THERE'S FREE MONEY TO BE HAD!?? IMagine our founding fathers and what they'd have thought?

We've really lost our way via the liberal agenda of "promise them anything for votes".

You're right, we need to be compassionate to our friends and family, but via US not so much via the Government.

FrogBurger said...

Let the states be compassionate, not the Federal government. IT's not its job. And there'll be less waste this way.

I don't mind a safety net for people who can't help themselves. And that includes elderly that may not have enough money. But that should be at the state level.

Anonymous said...

From Z:

The states are BROKE...do you think there's any real way out of this?

Chris Christie was very clear the other night, and always, about how he explained carefully WHY they had to practice austerity and his state has recovered very well, financially... And that's a pretty Democrat state.

Think Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney can make Americans understand we can't keep borrowing from China to pay our bills?
I wish one of them would talk very plainly about that.

obama's frequently talking about Americans sitting around the "kitchen table" suffering and talking about their financial woes...
let's extrapolate on that as Republicans and say "so...if that is the case at YOUR house, as Obama so sadly describes, would you say 'well, let's borrow a million anywhere we can get it, and keep spending like we always do!"

Think Americans might buy that? wouldn't you THINK!?

Average American said...

Man, Romney has a huge problem now! How is he ever going to top that Ryan speech last night? What a great problem to have though.

FrogBurger said...

I know they're broke so yes it's not any different except that it's at a smaller scale.

Gov can be more efficient if it's smaller.

I more and more firmly believe that if income tax was illegal we wouldn't be here today. The fact they can take money right out of our pay check is too easy.

If we had a different system based on fees for example with strict budget allocation, and that we'd pay by sending a check, it would force gov to make decisions like a business and we'd also see how much we're paying, very much like regular bills.

Mark Adams said...

Love the liberal spin on the Bowles-Simpson vote
"Ryan led a bloc of three House Republicans who denied the additional votes needed"

What Bloomberg fails to mention is that 4 Dems also voted against the Presidents.
Baucus-D, Becerra-D, Schakowsky-D and Stern-D
Could those be the ones who derailed the votes needed?

Silverfiddle said...

For those who actually paused to read Liberalmann's red propaganda,

Here's the antidote to his stupidity:

Yes, Paul Ryan spoke the truth

These lefties pull the propaganda off the teletype and run with it, but they can't defend it because it's all bs.

Anonymous said...

FROM Z:

SF...thanks for that. Sadly, Americans hear the lying spin and libs shut their minds to anything past it. This really helps and we should all send that around to email friends.

Mark...they might be the ones who derailed it but do we know what part of the thing Paul Ryan didn't like? I thought he contributed to it because Lib Erskine Bowles raves about Ryan's business accument, knowledge of budgeting, the economy, etc.
Is there something that's bad and he could sign on to the whole thing?

Avg Americans...we were saying that last night, too. "How's Romney going to top this?!"
I just hope Romney can show the human side his family and friends rave about. He's a pretty serious guy, so he either needs to back that up with great gravitas, outlining to America what's wrong and how to fix it, or do that on a smaller scale and sell his personality...somehow.!

FB....that system sounds interesting! I always wonder at the wealth more people had before income taxes. Keeping our money and spending it in the community seems like such a better idea.
Obviously, weneed money for military and infrastructure, but..

$254,452 per job...typical libtards idea of a bargain.

FrogBurger said...

Obviously, weneed money for military and infrastructure, but..

Yes that would be fees.

You'd get a bill for military / defense fees, etc...

And each new fee would have to be passed by Congress. Or even better, voted on by the American people :)

And no shuffling around of money.

Gov would run more like a business.

FROM Z:

FB...oh, MAN! A bill for a war? Can you imagine what flack most people would give? Much more FLACK than MONEY, I'm sure! "I'm not paying for any WAR!"
It's a fascinating suggestion, but...! :-)

Imp: Excellent point about how much it costs us FOR those jobs... jobs are supposed to create income into gov't coffers via taxes, right? Imagine how long it would take to get the money back from a $300K investment PER PERSON!?

re the 2 years Obama could have done something, I believe Christi and Ryan hit on that? And I believe it's an effective argument to Americans who can't think past something that simple, even while we're glad he didn't do anything!!

FrogBurger said...

That's right Z. This way we may just do wars when we're attacked.

After all, it's for the people from the people by the people.

Bob said...

Libbmann, if you are going to comment on blogs, you need to learn the difference between facts and talking points. It is embarrassing to the rest of us that it is so easy to debunk your stuff.

The GM plant in Janesville was officially closed in April, 2009 during Obama's term. Prior to that, there had been some large layoffs, but the plant was not closed.

You may not like the truth but regaling people with trash information from smear web sites is not smart. You need to take the time to fact check your fact checkers.

Lisa said...

they all did a fabulous job. I loved Susana Martinez's line to her husband "Well I'll be darned we "are" republicans"

That is JUST TOO RICH..,..the lefties are saying CONDI'S SPEECH WAS BETTER THAN RYAN'S (as if we expected different?)

Yes, the headline is "C Rice made the RNC WATCHABLE" Are you ready for that? :-)
I'm sure they'd never say a second of the DNC convention was unwatchable.

I guess that's a pretty good ploy: If Ryan's THAT good (tho they're still trying to prove an untruth; please see SF's link above), then a really good thing to do is say "someone was BETTER", even if it is another Republican.

Pray for Clint tonight...that he's the surprise speaker; that would speak VOLUMES to ordinary unthinking Americans who put celebrity in front of their country's well being.


And TX's idiot court has ruled against the laws that would have protected the votes of Texans; they couldn't show it wouldn't hurt minorities....tho the stats show it actually helps minorities.

"Gee, Lefties, if people are willing and smart enough to vote, maybe they can get ID, too?!" They have in the SOuthern States which do have voter ID law........darned if your 'soft bigotry of low expectations' isn't showing again!

I'm off to work again...see you later.

SF linked a FABULOUS link above showing that it's the media lying about Paul Ryan, not Paul Ryan lying:
I KNEW that that guy would NEVER risk lying about something whose details could be so easily checked upon; he's way too smart for that and has too good character, plus he knows we have to win or we lose America.
Here's the part about the GM Plant in Janesville. There's more really good stuff about Medicare, Simpson/Bowles, etc.:

UPDATE: Jonathan Adler of National Review offers these observations about the Janesville GM plant closing:

Pundits and fact-checkers are claiming that Paul Ryan misrepresented the history of the Janesville, Wisconsin General Motors plant in his convention speech. The primary charge is that the plant closed when Bush was still President. It seems the fact-checkers need to double-check their facts, however. While GM first announced plans to shutter the plant in 2008, the plant was not actually idled until 2009 (as reported here and noted here), and the shut-down schedule was faster than GM had initially announced. In 2008 GM said it would close the plant by 2010. What many of the “fact-checkers” missed is that an auto plant can produce more than one thing, so ending one production line need not lead to an actual plant closure. Conn Carroll has the rundown of the actual facts here. (More at Twitchy.)

The Republican National Convention in Tampa went on despite a number 2 category hurricane that threatened the entire area. Category 2 Hurricanes have wind speeds between 96-110 miles per hour and a water surge of up to6-8 feet
Upon watching the coverage of the convention, that all these republican folks seem to be so proud of I couldn’t help but to notice an elaborate stage fully equipped with a debt clock and adorned with a sign that says "We built that." Of course that was a dig at our President and his statement that was taken out of context, and spun by the right-wing establishment, and thrown back in his face.
Very Charming. And another thing that I couldn’t help but notice was the crowd, it was a sea of white, except of course for a few token blacks scattered around. There were also no black speakers, again except for that Aunt Jemima Condi Rice who has become a Black Icon of the Republican party. I failed to see any no blacks anywhere else.
There's a good explanation for that of course, the purpose of the convention being to formally nominate Mitt Romney who currently enjoys ZERO percent of the black vote. That's right, zero percent. Nada, None.

6 Worst Lies In Paul Ryan’s Speech

By Aviva Shen on Aug 30, 2012 at 9:36 am

Vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) is taking flack on the morning news shows for his keynote address at the Republican National Convention Wednesday night. His speech was riddled with false claims, so much so that even Fox News wrote, “To anyone paying the slightest bit of attention to facts, Ryan’s speech was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech.”

Here are the most glaring lies from his speech:

1. “A downgraded America.” Ryan blamed the president for the nation’s credit downgrade in August 2011 after Republicans threatened to allow the government to default on its debt for the first time in history. But the ratings agency explicitly blamed “Republicans saying that they refuse to accept any tax increases as part of a larger deal.”

2. “More debt than any other president before him, and more than all the troubled governments of Europe combined.” Romney has made the almost identical claim, that Obama has amassed more debt “as almost all of the other presidents combined.” But their math doesn’t add up: when Obama took office, the national debt was $10.626 trillion. It has increased to slightly above $15 trillion.

3. Shuttered General Motors plant is “one more broken promise.” Ryan described a GM plant that closed down in his hometown, Janesville, Wisconsin, and blamed Obama for breaking his promise to keep the plant open when he visited during his campaign. But Obama never made that promise, and the plant shut down in December 2008, before Obama even took office.

4. Obama “did exactly nothing” on Bowles-Simpson. Ryan said, “He created a bipartisan debt commission. They came back with an urgent report. He thanked them, sent them on their way, and then did exactly nothing.” In fact, Ryan was instrumental in sabotaging the commission, leading the other House Republicans in voting against the plan.

5. “$716 billion, funneled out of Medicare by President Obama.” Ryan’s favorite lie is a deliberate distortion of Obamacare’s savings from eliminating inefficiencies. Furthermore, Ryan’s own plan for Medicare includes these savings. Romney has vowed to restore these cuts, which would render the trust fund insolvent 8 years ahead of schedule.

6. “The greatest of all responsibilities is that of the strong to protect the weak.” Ryan closed the speech with an invocation of social responsibility, saying, “The truest measure of any society is how it treats those who cannot defend or care for themselves.” However, numerous clergy members have condemned Ryan’s budget plan as “cruel,” and “an immoral disaster” because of its devastating cuts in social programs the poor and sick rely on. Meanwhile, Ryan would give ultra-rich individuals and corporations $3 trillion in tax breaks.

Want an opinion from a non-political view? I have dvr'd the coverage. Last night I played the Christie speech while My husband was watching.

Normally when I have the political shows on, he leaves the room or is reading on his net book. Within the first 30 seconds, his eyes were on the TV and listening to every word. After 2 minutes, he said, "HE should be president. But he always tells it like it is, so he'd never get elected.".

I played the Ryan speech tonight. I thought it was great, Bob wasn't really listening. When I switched over to the people tonight giving the personal stories, he was interested again.

It seems odd that four years ago it seemed like the Republican party had no vitality, this year I'm very impressed with the talent of the younger speakers with this convention.

I'm very hopeful.

After hearing Rubio tonight I don't believe I've ever heard a better speech. I was hoping Romney would pick Rubio and after listening to him I think it might have been easier. But I want to believe that most American are ready to fix entitlements. I don't have a problem with getting my future benefit are cut, I've never believed there would be any left for me anyway.

"Let's do this!"

Sorry, didn't see it. I did see Clint Eastwood though and it was good. I wish he was younger.

He hit all the high notes.

Geeeeez, I'm really thinking that if obama gets elected again it is because the population of losers has exceeded the population of everyone else.

couldn’t help but notice was the crowd, it was a sea of white, except of course for a few token blacks scattered around. There were also no black speakers, again except for that Aunt Jemima Condi Rice who has become a Black Icon of the Republican party. I failed to see any no blacks anywhere else.


Hey dolt that's because MSNBC didn't show the other blsck speakers because they are racists. You really can't be that dumb. If you want to see a sea of brown people there will be plenty of Muslims at the DNC where you can get your fill.
Man you really are eeezeee,eeezeely brainwashed.

AOW, honestly? I saw the image at your place and don't get what the big deal is about. I don't look at it as a beheading thing, I look at it as a kind of interesting tableau, a juxtaposition of those behind Ryan and him, etc. I looked again now that you linked it here, thinking "Maybe you'll get it this time, Z" and I still don'T?

Did you like the speech tonight?

Rita, I felt hope tonight, too (if I can use that term that's been so prostituted the last 3 1/2 years!)

I just hope losing Ryan from the House Budget Commitee Chairmanship will be worth the humiliating defeat Romney is facing in November.

Beamish, I swear you have been invaded by the brain snatchers.
