Paul Ryan Says He WON’T Run For President In 2016…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Paul Ryan made his Presidential aspirations for 2016 public today. Ryan said he would not run if Mitt ran again. Romney also just made clear he’s thinking about running again. Wonderful… Via Daily Caller: Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan is a no-go for 2016. The 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee announced Monday that he will not run for the White House. Ryan’s news comes just days after Mitt Romney, his running mate, made clear he may run again. “I have decided that I am not going to run for president in 2016,” Ryan told NBC News on Monday. […]

Paul Ryan BLASTS IRS Commissioner John Koskinen: “I don’t believe you!”

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. In what can only be described as controlled rage, GOP Rep. from Wisconsin, and former Vice Presidential Candidate, Paul Ryan let IRS Commissioner John Koskinen have it with both barrels. “I’m sitting here, listening to this testimony, I don’t believe it,” Ryan said. “That’s your problem. Nobody believes you,” he said flatly to Koskinen. “The Internal Revenue Service comes to us a couple years ago and misleads us and tells us no targeting is occurring. Then it said it was a few rogue agents in Cincinnati. Then it said it was also on progressives. All of those […]

Republican Senator Mitch McConnell Sold Out To Obama and The Democrats

Once again the elites in Washington have proven that the founding concept of a “government of the people, by the people and for the people” is nothing more than a myth. Senator Mitch McConnell  sold out the Tea Party Republicans for a large barrel of pork for his state of Kentucky. Not only did the Republican leader in the Senate give Obama everything they wanted on the Continuing Resolution and the Debt Ceiling, he gave Obama the tool to be able the raise the debt ceiling in the future without having to worry about what the Republicans want in exchange. Breitbart […]

Vice Presidential Debate Live Feed

Here is the live feed for tonight’s Vice Presidential Debate, via ABC News… Watch More News Videos at ABC | 2012 Presidential Election | Entertainment & Celebrity News Enjoy, because I can’t help but think that this will be comical.

Trying to Cope with Stupidity

Folks, I understand that not everyone can be intelligent. But, stupidity seems to have reached epidemic proportions in the world today and America has not escaped this tragedy. This seems to be particularly true for those on the left side of the political spectrum Like me, most of you have probably seen some videos put up by conservatives that have gone viral. One was of a woman who was more than a little emotional because she had gotten a Obama phone. The other video I have in mind was where a sneaky conservative was interviewing Obama supporters at some rally. […]

Paul Ryan Mentions IPAB, and Think Progress Seems to Think it Wrong

Think Progress (More correctly:  Think Regress) seems to be a tad bit upset that Paul Ryan discussed the death panels, also known as IPAB, with a group of seniors.  I guess we can’t be letting granny know that it’s the Democrats that plan on offing them, can we? Here is what the propagandists at Think Regress thought of Paul Ryan’s speech… Paul Ryan likened a mechanism to control health care spending to “death panels,” during a town hall at the University of Central Florida in Orlando on Saturday. After listening to Ryan repeatedly call for the repeal of the Affordable […]

Obama’s Attack Jackasses

Mitt Romney could have named Bugs Bunny as his running mate and the puerile and increasingly hysterical Left would have labeled the rabbit as an extreme right-wing ideologue whose idea of governance is to murder the elderly, bitch-slap the poor, defenestrate the infirm, and happily castrate  a few stray squirrels as he hops his way to a coney Klan meeting.  But to a deranged pack of ‘progressives’  that critiques a Marxist like Barack Obama as “deeply conservative”, the choice of Paul Ryan, a man who believes that government should live within its means, is akin to the dawning of the Apocalypse.  Romney […]

Paul Ryan and Medicare: It’s time for some grownup talk

I knew from the moment that Mitt Romney announced Paul Ryan as his running mate the left was going to paint Ryan as an extremist who wants to destroy Medicare and push grandma off the cliff.  In a “these aren’t the droids you’re looking for” moment DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz attempts to use a Jedi mind trick on CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in the below clip.  Fortunately Mr. Blitzer was not weak minded in this instance and was able to resist her feeble attempts to pull the wool over his eyes.  Take a look at the below clip. How […]

Andrew Klavan Compares Ryan Economic Plan to Obama’s

Andrew Klavan has a video comparing the Ryan Economic Plan to President Obama’s. Well said, of course.  However, getting the government out of health care would make it far cheaper.

Paul Ryan References John Locke: Liberals Reportedly Suffer Siezures

OK, the last part is hyperbole… probably.  In reality, Paul Ryan referenced natural rights in his recent speech.  And the crowd went wild! The Blaze has the video… They really have to get after this guy, or too many people will be getting that whole “freedom” idea. That, my friends, would be far too radical for this day and age. NOTE:  I had to leave a link for the actual video, as it simply refused to embed.

Romney shuns “safe” Portman pick and goes with Rep. Paul Ryan

paul ryan

Fox News broke with a story at just after 2:00 a.m. EST that GOP Nominee Mitt Romney has made his choice for the Veepstakes: “A Republican with knowledge of the development confirmed the selection to the AP, hours ahead of an official announcement during a campaign stop Saturday morning in Norfolk, Va. Romney will then launch his “The Romney Plan For A Stronger Middle Class” bus tour. The selection comes roughly two weeks before the start of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, and gives Romney plenty of space to rally the party behind his pick before the official nomination.” […]

Is Obama propping up Medicare Advantage until after the election?

The Democrats are screaming that Paul Ryan’s plan to save Medicare will gut Medicare and kill grandma and grandpa.  The problem with that argument is that the Democrats have already dealt a serious blow to Medicare Advantage when they rammed Obamacare  through Congress back in March 2010.  The American Healthcare Education Coalition (AHEC) is a national non-profit, public-interest organization that pushes for free market solutions to our healthcare issues.  They analyzed the impact Obamacare would have on Medicare Advantage and below is an except from their study. The cuts to Medicare Advantage begin right away, with payment rates frozen in […]

Thinking About Paul Ryan’s Budget: 2012 Our Last Chance to Stop Collapse?

John Hinderaker of Powerlineblog had lunch this week with Representative Paul Ryan (Republican) and got a chance to talk with him regarding his fully written and complete budget proposal. Here is how John summarizes Representative Ryan’sapproach to his budget: The United States has a brief time remaining when we can solve our budgetary crisis without drastic measures. Soon, our debt to GDP ratio will inhibit economic growth, the sheer magnitude of the debt will overwhelm efforts to get it under control, and rising interest rates will crush all other budgetary considerations. For now, we have an opportunity to solve the fiscal crisis without, for example, having […]

I’m Talking To You – Treasury Secretary Geithner admits he doesn’t have a plan…

choice of two futures

Paul Ryan’s budget was passed in the House, but Majority Leader, Harry Reid made damned sure that it didn’t pass his Senate because HE has a budget of his own that he wants..huh? He doesn’t have a budget to submit, but President Obama’s budget got shot down 97-0??! Wow, what a uniter in chief we have; but has anyone pulled him aside and explained that bipartisan efforts work best when it gets your legislation passed, not when it gets your legislation thrown on the floor and walked all over. Oh. Well then he obviously is just going to use continuing […]

Paul Ryan: What real leadership looks like

Folks, we had better start listening to Paul Ryan, because we’re heading down the same road as Greece and very soon our debt is going to spiral out of control. It will reach a tipping point and we won’t be able to do anything to stop it. It’s an election year and both sides appear to be playing politics with our future. They don’t want to deal with this debt crisis because it’s the silly season when politicians paint a picture of rainbows and unicorns for the electorate. They want us feeling good about ourselves and buying into the empty promises […]

Politifact: What Happens When a Site Calls the Left on it’s Lies?

Politifact is a well know fact-checking website.  However, it has run afoul of regressives for poking massive holes in their narrative.  The Hill has the coverage… The claim that House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s budget would end Medicare is the “lie of the year,” according to the fact-checking website Politifact. According to Politifact’s analysis, saying the Ryan plan “ends Medicare” overlooks the fact that its changes would not affect people 55 and older. Politifact also said Medicare would remain in existence, but in a different form — which Ryan’s critics say is the same thing as ending Medicare. The regressives, however, have not taken this […]

Paul Ryan: Wall Street "Reform" Just More Crony Capitalism

I know I keep hammering away on this Financial Reform bill that Congress passed on May 20, 2010, but I feel compelled to keep trying to drive the point home as to why this bill is so bad for our country, our people, and our free market system.  I found an outstanding article written by Representative Paul Ryan that I wanted to share with you all.  It is one of the best articles I have seen to date on this subject.  It’s pretty long but it’s a must read. Wall Street “Reform” Just More Crony Capitalism By Rep. Paul Ryan Democrats are […]
