Paul Ryan took to the stage at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida with an all-out assault on President Obama. After declaring, “They’ve run out of ideas” to an adoring audience, Ryan ran out of ideas, then blamed the President for a plant that closed on George W. Bush’s watch. As reported here, Paul Ryan recently stated that the current political environment is the “most partisan atmosphere” he’s “ever seen” over the three administrations he’s worked for. Ryan selectively forgets, he ‘built that.’
To remain as divisive as his own history reveals, Paul Ryan just sliced and diced America down to neat little piles of ‘takers’ and ‘makers.’ Ryan didn’t just slap hard working Americans in the face once with this remark, but numerous times.
Watch Ryan go all Ayn Rand in this video:
Ryan is a taker, not a giver and certainly not a maker, unless spewing bullshit out of his mouth is considered a ‘maker.’
Ryan built this:
As reported here, new excerpts of a highly revealing book were published, highlighting the clandestine meeting with Republican leaders in attendance, led by GOP Whip Eric Cantor in 2008. Paul Ryan, the ideological rock star of the right and newly minted veep choice for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, also attended — each swore to obstruct anything, everything the President tries to accomplish — in lockstep, partisan-style.
To add to Ryan’s resume, Joan Walsh reports:
Ironically, Ryan came to national attention trying to dismantle the very program that helped him go to the college of his choice, pushing an even more radical version of President Bush’s Social Security privatization plan, which failed.
He has since become the scourge of the welfare state, a man wholly supported by government who preaches against the evils of government support.
Paul Ryan is what he hates. He’s not just what he would classify as a taker, but he’s also a predator. While demonizing a program that afforded him opportunities, Ryan wants to eliminate such support for others, because in his ideological mind, that would be ‘taking.’
In contrast, Mitt grew up wealthy. Romney thinks like a CEO and lives to win, at any cost. Ryan believes the crap that pours out of his mouth like a raging diarrhia.
