More Ryan: Obama’s getting “more partisan and desperate by the day”

posted at 9:59 pm on April 3, 2012 by Allahpundit

I posted his written statement earlier but you deserve to hear from the man himself after he enjoyed an ol’ fashioned smearing by our leader on national television today. First, his reaction at ABC News:

“Desperate and demagogic is how I would describe his speech in two words,” Ryan said. “Unfortunately we’ve become accustomed to this kind of rhetoric from the president. I feel like it’s Groundhog Day, except it’s April. He essentially said the same thing last year.

“His speeches are becoming more partisan and desperate by the day and his attempts to divide the nation and to distract people from his own failure to lead — I just don’t think are going to work,” he continued. “I think people are smarter than that.

“The president’s attacks on our budget are as disappointing, as revealing as his attacks on the Supreme Court,” Ryan said. “It seems that he takes anyone questioning his vision of limitless government as a personal affront and he’s lashing out. That’s hardly the kind of leadership we were expecting when he ran for office.”

Second, click the image to hear him describe for Mark Levin the trainwreck that’s going to destroy the insurance industry once ObamaCare starts rolling out in two years. There’s a bit of suspense in Wisconsin tonight as I write this: It’s Ryan who’s introducing Romney for his big victory speech, so Twitter’s already buzzing about whether Mitt will take Obama on over his “social Darwinism” crapola today. Presumably he has no choice, as Ryan insisted to ABC when asked about his budget that Romney “wants to take this to the country.” If he ignores today’s fracas in his remarks, it’ll be a bad omen for the general.

Exit question: Should we be glad that Pelosi, at least, is starting to be a tiny bit more honest about what a Hopenchange model of government would require?

I’ve spent the last three days traveling with Mitt through the great state of Wisconsin to listen to voters’ concerns and promote our shared message of more jobs, less debt, and smaller government.

I’ve enjoyed my time with Mitt. He’s a great guy — and my time with him has further convinced me that he is the right person for the job

Rep Paul Ryan

Cool!

I wonder how many wind turbines and solar panels were destroyed in Texas today. How much energy capacity did we just have destroyed? Now compare that to how many conventional power plants were destroyed today.

he went from hopenchange, to arrogant and aloof, to transcendant and absent, then to petty and vindictive, and now to desperate and demagogic. What’s next in his marxist progression?

Is Ryan jockeying for number two on the ticket?

John the Libertarian on April 3, 2012 at 10:07 PM

Might be the only thing that saves that ticket.

Think Palin viz a viz McCain.

Funny you should say that. In both the President’s meltdowns this week (lashing out at the SCOTUS about Obamacare and lashing out at Ryan for delivering a budget even though the jug-eared bastard and his party have yet to deliver a single budget) I thought that this is exactly how somebody acts when they are about to commit domestic abuse. Only when it is the President of the United States that is the bully with legions of union thugs, the nation is the one at risk.

In other words, don’t think this arrogant narcissistic commie is going to let a SCOTUS ruling de-rail his agenda. He, like Hitler, will use manufactured violence to create a threat that requires drastic government takeover of civil liberties and the rule of law.

I’m impressed by Paul Ryan more every day. He’s smart, bold, quick and articulate.

IMO the GOP ticket needs to hammer BO on this type of thing whenever possible. BO got elected basedon his personality, his charm, his skin color so in order to turn people away from him you have to show the ugly under the smooth. He has to be called on being a petty nasty man who treats the office of Pres as a personal toy. The true fanboys will never keave him but showing the thug behind the swarmy may convince some of the leaners.

We are going to be your worst nightmare. Graduates like you and your 0 president from batsh1t university are going down in flames. The best part is, all we have to do is let the 0 talk.

rightoption on April 4, 2012 at 8:07 AM

Ryan hopefully will be VP, Mitt desperately needs someone with budget and economic experience.
Too many people confuse someone who can pull profits from a company by selling and shifting assets, and someone who can run a national bureaucratic budget.
That’s like hunting for a rabbit with a shotgun, or hunting for a grizzly bear with bow and arrow…
Maybe people like Thomas Sowell will feel a little more comfort that Mitt at least will turn some of the financial reins over to someone with expertise…maybe…

Uh, you cant just have a riot and declare yourself king in 4 weeks. hes gonna have to plan this out, and have the ability and fortitude to carry out some severe carnage, in order to be declared king.

Remember, his mentor says 25million people need to die. The Nazis in 3 years only managed about 12million total civilian murders.

Ryan is correct and you may well be too. History has too many previous examples to ignore.

dogsoldier on April 4, 2012 at 8:27 AM

Maybe Obama can talk about the Democrat budget, oh wait….

Obama saying someone else is radical is like Bill Clinton saying someone is a bad husband.

No dude, the question is…. what are YOU going to be like in November? It’s easy to see the writing on the wall in the the recent seemingly disparate events. This could be a “beginning” of things that will escalate in the coming months. We know it and you know it – it’s all part of your “handbook”.

HomeoftheBrave on April 4, 2012 at 8:39 AM

My prediction is Ryan will be the VP. This will help push through his budget and it will solidify the conservative basis for Romney.

libfreeordie on April 4, 2012 at 7:49 AM

You mean its only April and Obama is using incindiary rhetoric already right?

I am afraid of what he will be doing by October. One of the possibilities I am most concerned with is that he will flood the streets with violent rabble, to scare people, particularly whites, away from the polls.

With a DOJ that won’t prosecute such an offense the rabble would be emboldened to do all sorts of things with impunity.

We are very close to a public flip out by Barrack or Michelle or both. It will be amazing when it happens. Highest YouTube viewership ever…

Followed by Joe Biden going foaming at the mouth, hair plug popping, stark raving mad…

Funny that you both are saying this. With the inflammatory nature of the verbiage being used by Obama this week concerning the Supreme Court, I can’t help but think that his words are deliberately meant to anger and provoke his base. And fwiw, the buzz words and talking points being used by the trolls last night on the 5th Circuit thread definitely seemed more incendiary as well. Is the POTUS attempting to incite the mobs if the SCOTUS ruling is not in his favor? Yep, I have to wonder…

This is inevitable. Think pounding the podium, ranting that we proved “unworthy” of his “Great Leadership”, etc.

If Obama is rejected in his re-election the fault (in his mind) lies with the American People, not any failings on his part.

jeffn21 on April 4, 2012 at 8:45 AM

It will help, but Mitt has a long way to go before he “solidifies” a conservative base…a long way, and some apology, but he never apologizes, and he never makes a mistake.

right2bright on April 4, 2012 at 9:53 AM

But, but, I keep hearing that even the people who disagree with his policies find him charming and “personally likeable.”

He is personally likeable. So is boxing promoter Don King.

Barack Obama is doing for America what Don King has done for boxing.

@williamg:

It’s difficult to “go for the jugular” when you’re sitting on the bench, naked, with shower water dripping off of you – and you’re closely examining the bottoms of your FEET, picking callouses off of the bottoms of your toes and getting annoyed because your servants haven’t brought you a towel, yet………

Why are you trying to bring the unfortunate spectre of the first uh, “lady” into this argument?

GrassMudHorsey on April 4, 2012 at 11:53 AM

There is NO doubt in my mind that obama, the chicago political clan, and the mobsters, which they are all tied to, will institute violence and assassinations to achieve his reelection.
And remember my prediction: that romney will NOT campaign against obama using all the illegalities and lies that obama has committed, just like mccain didn’t. Romney will be a powder puff just like mccain. God help us!
They did a good job of shutting the clintons up in 2008, and so many others.
