It's always funny to see a FOXbot complain about deceitful and unconscionable tactics.

Picking Ryan would turn desperation into disaster
After all, Ryan is the author of the deeply unpopular House budget passed by Republicans – which would eviscerate the social safety net and do away with Medicare’s federal guarantee. It’s the equivalent of political Kryptonite, and even though Romney has foolishly endorsed the document, putting the Congressman on the ticket would make it that much easier for the Obama campaign to tar Romney with the most unpopular provisions of Ryan’s budget. This is not to mention the fact that Ryan has no experience on the national political stage. That he’s even being considered is a sign of Romney’s growing desperation and all too evident indications that he has not closed the deal with conservatives.
When times are rough, there is often the inclination to throw the Hail Mary pass (a la Sarah Palin in 2008). But while Romney’s chances of victory are narrowing, the selection of Ryan would compound his problems and make winning in November that much more unlikely. The Romney campaign has hardly been a font of competence to date, but picking Ryan would be political malpractice.

Who knew Mitt would make McCain look like a genius?
No easy task that.
LOL.

"With the exception of a few months when he worked in the family business, Ryan has spent his entire adult life working in government in one capacity or the other." rtl

"Rep. Ryan has trotted out the kind of budget that only a rich fellow with no ability to feel compassion for the poor would create. It's legislative sociopathy wrapped in a folksy DIY, pick-yerself-up-by-yer-bootstr aps, we-don't-need-no-big-gubmint package.

Thankfully for regular people like me, Ryan's message is clear as day: fuck the poor. I don't know why he chose to make it so obvious – a wilier, tricksier politician would've hidden the nastier bits in some kind of rhetorical cloaking device so that ordinary folks and casual observers wouldn't get it.

The problem for Ryan is, we get it. He made it easy. And we're not too psyched about it." xoj

Why in the world would I vote for anyone who supports 'the upper' class; those who make >$100k? This country was founded on the backs of the working man, and only when we get that group back will America be strong again. Too many jobs have been lost to foreign countries and their cheap labor. Stop fooling with the minimum wage, get your head out of the worlds backyard and get your focus back into what is going on in your own backyard (no jobs for the working man). Enough...see the big picture and stop focus on the distractions.

Hannity’s Latest Scheme To Impeach Obama: The SuperPAC Ad ‘Blaming’ Romney For Death Of Steelworker’s Wife

But unfortunately for Hannity, Coulter took her eye off attacking Obama in order to attack Romney instead. She suggested that the ad would be “the turning point” in the campaign were it not for the response of Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul. In an open admission that the Hannity show is all about promoting Republicans and their causes, Coulter said there was “no point” in doing the show if Saul was going to be such a “moron.”

It's been difficult enough coming to terms with the A-bombs dropped on Japan. Now learning about the fire bombs dropped on seven major cities in Germany and Japan...it's too much.

But life does go on. I still want to defeat the enemy that has infiltrated Capital Hill - progressive secularist liberalism.

The lame stream media, aka the progressive secularist cheerleaders, wrote the book on deceitful and unconscienable tactics.

Thank goodness at least one news cable network is exposing their corruption and still looking out for the folks.

It's you who has been duped. Just trying to help.

First because your premise is false. Just because he is succesfull himself doesn't mean he only supports the upper class. If you are easy prey for class warfare Democats, you would believe that though.

Why in the world would you vote for anyone who supports class warfare and keeping people from achieving success and prosperity. The government can't give you that.

What we need is freedom and an economic environment so more people can hget good paying jobs instead of working at McDonalds. Obama has failed miserably.

In the USA, you can come from the middle/lower class and you have a good shot at being successful if you work hard. This is not true in socialist/Obama type countries. The liberals control education, but many cannot afford it because of the greed the left has where tution can costs tens of thousands of dollars per year.

The left isn't helping you, they are just making you hate and be resentful - no hope, just hate.

I want a president who will get us out of this rut Obama has made worse. You can vote for Obama, but don't whine to me when you and your kids have no hope and end up relying on government welfare checks.

When fellow Americans find fault balancing an out of control budget, you know we're in big trouble.

It's all about the waste, fraud and duplication.

These same fellow Americans simply don't want to believe there are people who would actually fraud the government and they choose to ignore the mindboggling waste and duplication of government programs.

On the Issues:

Eventually Clinton came around to the idea of cutting the capital gains tax. The tax was cut and revenue poured in! Gingrich wanted to cut spending even more. Even though the rates were lower, the economic growth brought in hundreds of billions extra each year. The proportion of taxes paid by the richest 1% rose from 37% in 2000 to 40% in 2006, even though their tax rate had been cut! 8 years to eradicate, was gone in less than 2 years.

That's the glory of...that's the story of capitalism. If the big wheels don't turn, the cogs don't turn either.

So much for the referendum
By Steve Benen - Sat Aug 11, 2012 8:31 AM EDT
As of this morning, Romney's strategy has been thrown out the window. Paul Ryan wrote a right-wing budget plan, which redistributes wealth from the bottom up, and which guarantees voters will be presented with a very clear choice in the fall, not a referendum.
Indeed, it's not unreasonable to think the entire election dynamic will be turned on its ear -- voters will be asked to vote, not on Obama, but on the far-right Romney-Ryan vision.
And what is the vision crafted by a man who credits Ayn Rand for his involvement in politics? It's one in which Medicare would be replaced with a voucher scheme; Social Security would be privatized; taxes would be cut even more for the very wealthy; and Washington would "take food from poor children, make it harder for low-income students to get a college degree, and squeeze funding for research, education, and infrastructure."
What's more, the Ryan plan does not reduce the debt, either.
This has always been less of a budget plan and more of a right-wing fantasy. As of this morning, Romney not only endorses this right-wing vision, he owns it -- and in the process, he's presented the electorate with a dramatic choice, not a referendum.
LOL! I'm so glad he picked Herman Munster!! Oh yes! Send him to Florida to sell his voucher plan!
