    Romney has set the tone of his campaign with his “grow government slower” slate.

    Ryan would take thirty years to balance the budget. Obama would never balance it. For most of us, what would the fiscal difference be in most of our lifetimes?

    Without anything to sell, Romney’s strategy is to scare the electorate into voting against Obama. Get ready for more clips about how bad Obama is as the only salable reason to vote for Romney/Ryan.

    Someone just sent me this clip of Ron Paul talking about Paul Ryan’s budget and it sums up the Romney strategy….

    Who is Ron Paul???????? Another back-bencher????

  3. brian said at 11:09 am on August 11th, 2012:

    Can you link to this Ron Paul fellows budget that passed the House so we can compare?????

    Bachman, Gingrich, Paul, Perry and Santorum must still pick their respective VP’s. When they do, the delegates will have a second chance to choose a decent challenger.

    Time to put some value into the taxpayer funded $18 Million Republican National Convention.

    Sorry. I forgot to post the link to the story of the Senate proposing an end to taxpayer funded conventions:

    It doesn’t bode well for the 2nd in the food chain. First public appearance with the country clubber in charge and he doesn’t bother wearing a tie?
    Hell with his fit looking mid-section, our BMOC would have at least worn a tie and I bet as wide as he could find as well.
    Don’t worry about the Congressman’s budget plan after the Romney camp gets through vetting it there won’t be a single line item that anyone can take to the bank.

    Just like people were hatin’ on Palin about her wardrobe. There’s important issues afoot and to be honest, causual works for me.

    O and JO Joe, get serious and maybe people will take you serious. You’re a jerk.

  8. Silly Place with Great Benefits said at 10:17 pm on August 11th, 2012:

    Why would a man who refers to Washington as “the silly place” become a career politician? Does he think his mere presence makes it less “silly”?

    If I publicly referred to my place of employment that way I would be canned.

    Wait, Wait, Wait For It….

    Here Come The Hateful Attacks

  10. Proud Republican said at 8:31 am on August 12th, 2012:

    Although I would have preferred Rubio, Paul Ryan is still a great pick. The despicable mainstream media is already going into overdrive with the “who is Paul Ryan” stuff. I now know his whole life story – when his father died, where he went to school, when he got married, etc. Too bad they never did the same thing to Obama. The media is doing everything they can to paint Obama as “surging” while trying to manufacture problems for Romney. They tried the same thing with Scott Walker though, and got blown out of the water. This pick will energize conservatives and if the Republicans can keep the Democrat voter fraud in check, Romney/Ryan should be able to stop our muslim president from turning the U.S. into a socialist, welfare cesspool. With gas prices up again, 50% of college grads unemployed or underemployed, and the deficit higher than a crack addict at midnight, no amount of media spin can hide that from the voters.

  11. Bob English said at 8:12 pm on August 12th, 2012:

    Breaking news…even though the Pennsylvania GOP was not able in court filings to point to one case of voter fraud anywhere in the United States or provide any evidence that it was likely to occur in November, there was an incident of fraud reported in the news this past week. From the Wall Street Journal “Four staff members of former Rep. Thaddeus McCotter’s were charged with election fraud Thursday after they were accused of padding nomination petitions with old and duplicate signatures. The 10-week investigation by Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette concluded with 34 felony and misdemeanor charges in state court against the staffers.”…woops, that was GOP voter fraud. Does that count???

  12. Proud Republican said at 8:34 pm on August 12th, 2012:

    Bob English – are you lonely in your fantasyland? The voter fraud perpetrated by ACORN alone cannot be quantified. There is a reason why photo id is required to board a plane, rent a car, pick up tickets at a box office, etc. – it’s to be certain that the person is who they say they are. The problem with that is, Democrats can’t cheat if voters must show I.D. And the only way our Muslim president, a complete and utter failure whose record is abysmal, whose policies are socialist and unAmerican and whose hatred for this country and everything its stands for has been proven time and time again, can win is to cheat. No one with any honesty and patriotism would object to ensuring that elections are as accurate and legitimate as possible. That is, unless you are a Democrat. Democrats are against anything that protects the integrity of the process – no tort reform, no drug testing for welfare recipients, no questioning citizenship, no voter I.D. No, in the Democrat world – cheating is welcomed.

  13. Joe Killeen said at 8:23 pm on August 13th, 2012:

    And I thought all along that the credit card you used to make the purchase worked for picking up purchased items. Valid Driver License’ to rent a car make sense and valid photo ID’s to get on a plane, which came about after several prominent and destructive incidents of fraud. And If Photo ID’s and more certain voter roll accuracy was shown to be that important and abusive then a well thought out bi-partisan review of the records is in order.
    The timing and location of the current rash of voter roll fear mongering does not stand up to either needs test.
    The states where this issue has become front and center have not been plagued by incidents of or very many accusations of voter fraud in the recent past. The only characteristic they do share are Republican controlled state legislatures.
    Now if I was of a suspicious nature that shared characteristic would make me wary.
    Why now? Why the rush to implement and the requirements to now qualify established to make getting registered to vote will take more effort than exercising your past right to vote. If you are able to navigate the administrative difficulties inherent in the process and devote the time to stand in line at a newly empowered and financed tempest in a teapot government expense.
    After which following the thoughts expressed by Proud Republican you will not have satisfied the “you must be cheating” charge if the “right” candidate doesn’t win.
    It is this spin on the political debate in this country that is more worrisome than any words, thoughts or action of any one or gaggle of politicians seeking office.
    Politics is a constant live action game. We have almost a perpetual campaign going on in this democracy. It’s those who say either my way or no way that prevent any real work from getting done.

  14. Bob English said at 11:32 pm on August 13th, 2012:

    Proud: People who are 80, 85, 90 or 95 years old are not getting on a plane, renting a car, or picking up tickets at a box office.

    People who are to poor to buy a car are not getting on a plane, renting a car, or picking up tickets at a box office.

    Any problem that some of the people affected by the Republican voter supression laws are military veterans? All of the talk from Romneys campaign about military voting in Ohio being cut by the Obama campaigns lawsuit was one big lie but in states where the Republicans passed voter supression laws, many elderly veterans of the military could very well not be able to vote if they do not have a valid photo id.

    Your constant remark about our “Muslim” President” is the most despicable thing I have ever seen on MMM and I am going to tell you that every time you repeat that in a comment addressed to me.

    Bob English I guess you are being sarcastic because there are numerous people over the age of 85 flying. My almost 90 year old mother flies and goes on cruises, and must show ID. She also drives. If you are a republican I guess you are a Pelosi republican because you last argument shows you have absolutely zero credibility as some independent thinker. You are a Democrat troll pretending to be a moderate Republican.
