YOU just might want to look up the FACTS.
For your info P.RYAN voted against the stimulus plan and as soon as it passed guess who was one of the first people in line to get some of that stinulus money for his state.
It is FACT look it up it has nothing to do with the NYTS or MSNBC these are FACTS you can look up.
P.Ryan was one of the first to be in line to get some of that stimulus money so he could go back to his people and say LOOK WHAT I GOT FOR YOU and yet he voted against it.
This is from AP http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/16/paul...

so new polls came out today for state by state electoral estimates. Looks like Mitt Romney went from being behind 110 electoral points (which is basically campaign death) and has gone to being behind 141 points....so...yea...

To keep that from happening, Republicans offer two easy solutions. One is willful blindness -- to simply ignore all the modern day incarnations of Jacob Riis and carry on blaming the victims. But for those who know too much and can't shut it out of their minds, there is another solution whose popularity can be seen in Romney's selection of Paul Ryan as his running mate: the Ayn Rand plan. Just change your moral code! Embrace Rand's cold-hearted Law of the Jungle, in which selfishness is the only virtue, altruism the cause of all that is wrong in the world, and the losers ... well, sucks to be you. It is little wonder that the Tea Party wing, the libertarian wing, and the elite core of the GOP are increasingly embracing her version of morality.

Perhaps this isn't really how Romney views the world. After all, he's a professional politician on the campaign trail who was at work raising money. But if there is any place where one might presume that he was speaking his own mind, it would probably be at an off-the-record fundraiser where he was surrounded by his own people -- the very rich. Even if he doesn't think this way, he certainly thinks that his wealthy donors do, and his pollsters would know.

And then there are the racial dog whistles in Romney's speech. No matter how much Republicans deny playing the race card by talking about welfare and "dependence," much of the point of talking about it is to trigger pictures in Republican heads. Let's be honest. For most Republicans, the mental image isn't of a lazy white kid in front of an Xbox. The "freeloaders" are always people of color, usually black.(Doubt it? Then why did Romney play the "victims" trope immediately after the "dependent upon government" trope?) It used to work on me.

The letter Mae Pelissier received from the Friendly Ice Cream Corp. was dated Jan. 5, but did not arrive in her mailbox until the 13th. It did not contain good news.

It began, "Dear Retiree," and said benefits Pelissier had earned from a 28-year career as a Friendly's restaurant employee were being terminated as of Jan. 9 as a result of the Wilbraham-based company's bankruptcy filing."

Four days before I'd even gotten the letter, all my benefits were already cut off," said Pelissier, 82, who worked at the Friendly's restaurant on King Street in Northampton in two stints, the final one from 1968 to 1988.

Those benefits included a $72 monthly pension, supplemental health coverage and a $6,000 life insurance policy, she said.

Look, nobody likes being described as a "victim," with its implication of helplessness -- especially not the millions of Americans who struggle on a daily basis in such a difficult economy. We labor in a world that was crashed down on us four years ago by Wall Street banditos who not only went unpunished but -- unlike Romney's "dependents" -- got bailed out. But most of us have been there -- even at my own company, I've taken pay cuts, watched good people forced out of a job and our valuable real estate asset peddled off, all by anonymous hedge funders who cut and ran.

The sad truth is, "victim" is perfectly appropriate for those of us who, in the word of Bruce Springsteen, have been held up without a gun. It's hard to know what is more utterly infuriating about Mitt Romney right now. Is it his baffling denial of his role in creating the very state of affairs that he now decries, for cheap political gain? Or is it his insistence on spitting at the people he's already knocked to the ground? This is a question that's been asked before in a different context, but it needs to be asked tonight of Mitt Romney, Marc Leder, and their millionaire pals.

Why do they hate us?

The worst thing about Mitt Romney's condescending Ayn Randian rants down in Boca Raton wasn't the part where he makes the novel argument that it's easier to become president when you're a Hispanic (because... we've had so many of these?) or where he claims that it's "high risk" to appear on TV's The View, suggesting that confronting Putin may not be as hard as going toe-to-toe with Joy Behar.

It's arguably not even the evil banality of the contemptuous words he uses to describe nearly half of the United States of America that he proposes to lead -- "victims" and "dependents" who feel that basic human needs like food or shelter are "an entitlement."

No, the worst thing about Mitt Romney and his hedge-fundy Florida host -- the vulture capitalist and part-owner of the Philadelphia 76ers Marc Leder -- is their audacity, to "offshore" thousands of good-paying U.S. jobs to China and to use fiscal shenanigans to strip workers of their hard-earned pensions, and then to sneer at those people as "victims."

How revealing that you think it's not even POSSIBLE for anyone to get through life without sucking on the federal teat.

Now, Romney was wrong as hell for suggesting all the "47%" are career Nanny-State mooches with a victim mentality.

But he sure got your number right.

In 1812 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 200 years prior: "A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy,(which is) always followed by a dictatorship."

Don't forget how he lumped all the Active US military and himself into that category...why...because everytime he opens his mouth...dumb pours out.

Like how he said he would do nothing to help israel because it would be too hard...

On helping with isreal and palestine's situation
"There's just no way. And so what you do is you say, "You move things along the best way you can." You hope for some degree of stability, but you recognize that this is going to remain an unsolved problem. We live with that in China and Taiwan. All right, we have a potentially volatile situation but we sort of live with it, and we kick the ball down the field and hope that ultimately, somehow, something will happen and resolve it."

Good to know when its hard, he just won't do anything...yet criticize obama for not doing anything either...

Yes, like the GOP is not dependent on the outsourced slave workforce they have managed to gather up after losing ground to the middleclass who only waned a slightly better life for the labor they committed too, and the ideas that were blatantly stolen in making these greed mongers rich.

Moreover, they have also forgotten that their moneys came primarily from the sweats and labors of those that had to endure ridiculous annual increases, while they lavish in multi-million dollar salaries that they couldn't possibly ever make had it not been for the cheap laws they fixed to suit them.

Thieves are, and will always be thieves, and this country seriously needs to get some honest politicians, some honest judges and some honest citizens to change a fixed and broken system that is unfair to the average majority of Americans.

Honesty is unelectable.

Sadly, 90% of the country supports endless war and financial collapse. So that's what we're getting. Buckle up.

This is nothing new. It's what we in the reality-based community have assumed and believed all along. These videos simply confirm that Mr. Romney has nothing but contempt for 146 million Americans. Unfortunately, he's running for an office that requires him to be concerned about all 311 million of us.

Of course, Mr. Romney is undoubtedly refusing to release his tax returns because a) they will show that he is among the 47% of Americans who paid no income tax and b) that he is better off now than he was four years ago.

“I opposed the stimulus because it doesn’t work, it didn’t work,” the Wisconsin congressman told told an Ohio television station in August.“It brought us deeper into debt. It was about $1.1 trillion when you add the borrowing cost, it put us deeper in debt and further out of work.”
Many economists disagree with Ryan's assessment of the effects of the stimulus, however. As The New York Times reported, economists estimate that the Recovery Act was responsible for saving or creating 2.5 million jobs. Economists also found that the stimulus contributed to economic growth and kept the unemployment rate from skyrocketing.
Moreover, as the Boston Globe reported last month, Ryan wrote to the Department of Energy in 2009 requesting funding for two Wisconsin-based energy conservation groups. According to the Globe, one of the organizations received $20 million in stimulus funds, while the other was awarded $740,000.
Rubbish.

Obama's foolish "stimulus" wasted three dollars of money we don't have to add one dollar to the economy.

Stupid.
