Videos: Paul Ryan is totally ready for his close-up

posted at 2:01 pm on August 11, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

Jazz already posted speech excerpts and some past videos of Paul Ryan’s prosperity-promotin’ badassery, but just for good measure and if you’re not yet feeling the excitement, here are a few more.

Below is the full video of Romney and Ryan rolling out the Comeback Team earlier this morning — I think Ryan might’ve been a tad bit nervous at first, but overall a very assuring speaker, no?

Solid. So, on to a some flashbacks: Remember that time Ryan absolutely tore ObamaCare to shreds, right to President Obama’s face? That was fun.

So bold, so brash. And then there was the time Paul Ryan annihilated President Obama’s proposals to hike taxes on the wealthy, in about ninety seconds.

In a nutshell, the Democrats’ class-warmongering amounts to not even a drop in the bucket of bringing down our national deficit, and would do untold harm to economic growth to boot. Kind of makes it all the more galling that hiking taxes on the wealthy is pretty much Obama’s central campaign platform right now, doesn’t it?

And if you’re looking for further proof of Paul Ryan’s excellent fiscal, economic, and budgetary expertise, you’ll enjoy this little takedown.

Yep, I’d say we can definitely work with that — and how!

Vote for Republicans except vote for Obama. Then impeach his shinny butt.

Steveangell on August 11, 2012 at 3:49 PM

Dumbest thing you’ve ever posted here.

wargamer6 on August 11, 2012 at 3:51 PM

Why on earth are Romney supporters so swift to diss anyone that dare say Obama should be held accountable.

They are insane if they think the public could not get a President Impeached. They are the only ones who can.

If the House investigates Obama and starts Impeaching him time after time come 2014 the people will vote out Senators who are not for Impeachment. Then is is possible you could convict. But even if not it would damage Obama forever and make him totally impotant which is the real point. Make it impossible for him to govern.

But no. Establishment Republican are doing every thing possible to protect Obama. No illegal action is enough in their books to even investigate. Illegal appointments. Their answer make them legal.

Mitt, Ryan and John Bonehead are just a part of the Obama problem. They are protecting them and screwing America.

I have hope that there really aren’t that many who think this perversely.
What a sad plan if that’s what he/she thinks would actually happen.
And then of course, we’d have Joe Biden as POTUS.
Guess he/she thinks that’s sooooo much better than Mitt & Paul.

And the more you carp on & refuse to UNITE behind the 2 guys who are the only other choice, you will doom this country to another 4 hellish years of Barack OBama & his communist agenda.
You, Sir, ARE the problem with this country.
Your change cannot happen immediately. There are too many people in this country that will find it hard to stop sucking on the govt teat & it will be a gigantic battle that will take many years to turn back toward the Constitutional LAW of the land.
It may never even ever happen.
But these 2 guys offer more hope for that happening than the Communist who is Obama.

Badger40 on August 11, 2012 at 3:32 PM

Good analysis.

In January 1932, did the democrats under FDR pass 90% income tax laws, implement Social Security, initiate Medicare, and pass laws mandating socialized medicine? The answer is, “No”. They started slowly and incrementally growing government, with each future statist administration and congress, mostly democrat, but unfortunately, some were Republican administrations like Nixon who gave us OSHA and the EPA, adding more and more power and taking more and more liberty and freedoms.

This isn’t going to be undone overnight. That was the mistake made in 1994 when the Republicans won the House for the first time in a generation. It’s going to take time to unwrap the people from their government security blanket. But if we don’t start that now, they are going to have that security blanket ripped from their grasp by an economic catastrophe that is going to devastate the entire country. So to all the naysayers, yes, Ryan may have voted for some things that are not pure conservative, but given his positions and statements, it is clear that he sees the dangers lurking and the correct path forward.

These are the people who are the nominees, you have two choices, Romney/Ryan or Obama/Biden. Choose wisely.

Slade73 on August 11, 2012 at 4:05 PM

Was Ryan’s speech boring? Depends on who you are I guess, but it should be exciting for everyone. If we make the election just about sterile and unappetizing economic issues, this will work against us because people will be too bored, they’ll tune out (and be more likely to vote O because they won’t hear the conservative message so much).
If we exclude the “spicy” issues of gay marriage and immigration, and other things that generate some controversy BUT EXCITEMENT, we will pay a price. Of course with the convention coming up, we need to think about generating the controversy and excitement. Get people all excited and fired up, and different things float different peoples boats. (Note to all: I agree, the ending of Ryan’s speech was the best: Get er Done!)

Steveangell on August 11, 2012 at 4:01 PM

That’s interesting that you believe that. This is the same American public you’re talking about that has been voting in people who have r@ped this country almost to death.
The fact that Obama has been allowed to do all of these things, that FDR was allowed to institute all of his New Deal communist agenda, that Wilson was allowed to flush the Constitution down the toilet for all of these years Democrats & Republicans both, with the BLESSING of the American public, has caused the ruination of America.
And now suddenly you think that the ‘people’ are going to do something about Obama? I’m not saying it’s not possible.
But it wouldn’t matter anyway!
He needs to be removed from the office which gives him power every second he is POTUS to destroy more & more.
We need some guys in there who will lead. I’m not an avid Mitt supporter. Never have been.
But I do think he does love this country.
George W did too.
Reagan certainly did.
And those 2 guys did things I disagree with.
But it is up to the people to make these guys accountable for true change.
Impeaching Obama will not help set America back to Constitutional principles.

It’s going to take time to unwrap the people from their government security blanket.

I saw the Ryan-Obama exchange in the 2nd video back when it happened (when Obama was still playing half-heartedly at being bipartisan). It sold me on Ryan so I’m pretty happy today. I mean, talk about evisceration.

I love Palin, but Ryan is better at turning the combativeness on and off, and is more steady when it’s on. I don’t think he’ll stumble on the MSM interviews, and I expect that he’ll actually turn their gotcha questions around on them and make them look like the fools they are.

Given the current economic conditions, with so many families having members out of work or neighbors out of work; I don’t think that people are going to find economic issues either “sterile” or “boring”, but relevant to their current conditions. People know that things aren’t right and that the 8.2% unemployment rate advertised is a manufactured lie. U6 hovering around 15% is more realistic and what people are feeling.

So candidates focusing on what is affecting families and neighbors is a winning approach.

Terrye on August 11, 2012 at 4:22 PM

Here is what the radical left is planning to do about Ryan:

Dear MoveOn member,

Breaking news: Mitt Romney just picked tea party hero Paul Ryan as his running mate. And Romney may have just committed political suicide.

Paul Ryan is the author of the most extreme right-wing budget ever proposed in Congress. He wants to dismantle Medicare, privatize Social Security, and cut taxes for millionaires while raising taxes on the middle class.

Simply put, the policies Paul Ryan stands for are politically toxic.

But here’s the thing: Paul Ryan isn’t just a extremist—he’s young, smart, and charming. The media constantly describe him as looking like “the boy next door.” He’s the ultimate wolf in sheep’s clothing.

The next ten days are crucial to make sure the American people understand the truth about Paul Ryan. We’re launching an emergency “Paul Ryan is Wrong For America” campaign, but we need to raise $200,000 this weekend to make it happen.

Chip in $5 to help America learn the truth about Paul Ryan.

Here’s the plan:

We’ll hold protests everywhere Romney and Ryan go this week, and we’ve got an ambitious plan to hand out over 1 million pink slips to voters to show how many jobs the Romney-Ryan ticket would cost us.

We’re going to share stories from Paul Ryan’s actual constituents who know best what he’s all about—including one woman who was unemployed, facing large medical bills, and literally camped out for a week in front of Paul Ryan’s office because he refused to meet with her. She’s still waiting for her meeting.

We’re putting together a wave of super-sharable videos, photos, and Facebook posts that we can use to tell people about Paul Ryan via social media. For starters there’s an unbelievable clip of Glenn Beck calling Paul Ryan his “soul mate.”

I’m so excited to put this plan into action. If we can pull it off, this could hurt the Romney campaign the way the Sarah Palin debacle hurt John McCain. But we can’t do it unless we can raise $200,000 this weekend.

Chip in $5 to help make sure America knows the truth about Paul Ryan.

The next ten days are crucial for the future of America. Every day this week, Mitt Romney will be making appearances with Paul Ryan at diners, town squares, factories—all to create the false impression that he and Paul Ryan understand the concerns of people like you and me.

The Republicans are trying to do exactly what they did with George W. Bush—convince people that he’s someone you’d like to have a beer with, and then ram though a far-right agenda that screws the middle class.

We can’t count on the media to tell the truth. It’s up to us to set the record straight.

Chip in $5 to help make sure America knows the truth about Paul Ryan.

Thanks for all you do.

The bottom line is that is has taken decades to get here.

2010 was just the beginning. Sarah Palin figured that out.

I keep telling people it will take several elections before we see real change in the status-quo in Washington, if it does happen.

A generation of aged Congressmen and Senators will either retire or be voted out of office on their ear. The ones that will be left will see their colleagues slowly and surely disappearing and if it does not strike fear into them it should.

Send them home to live in the cesspool they created.

Look around you. All of the local people involved in government today are our state and federal leaders tomorrow. AS was stated above. Choose wisely. Even locally. Especially locally.

Long-term change doesn’t mean we don’t fight the fight. Not everyone makes it to the top of the hill, but that doesn’t mean everyone shouldn’t try.

Evidently he’s going to vote for Obama. To which I say, he is not really a conservative, nor anything probably but a Democrat.
To say that Mitt is a communist is quite honestly one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard.
There is absolutely zero evidence for that. And RomneyCare is not evidence for communism. I see it in its context.
But soundbites & minimalist history is the rage & so this person really expects us to believe his bitter diatribe that eating dog sh!t (voting for Obama) is really better than being forced to eat horsesh!t (voting GOP).
Bcs as anyone who has ever been around both types of sh!t, one of those really is more palatable when that’s all you’ve got to eat.

First of all Romney is also a Communist. Thus no change.

Secondly Ryan voted for the Union Enrichment bills. Both of them the GM screw over Republicans and enrich Union bill. Then the bail out Union workers (Stimulus) bill. Neither of these bills showed any fiscal restraint. Both showed a complete and utter lack of understanding of what works in America. Both were anti-Capitalism.

At least Obama will be contained by the House and possibly the Senate. R & R would get Republicans to help them steal even more from Americans of all income levels and give it to Government.

The answer is better the Crook we all hate than the Crook that some will vote with.

As much as this pains me to say it.

AZfederalist on August 11, 2012 at 4:03 PM

Obviously all you actually care about is putting Romney in charge.

Because there are more than two choices.

R&R backtracks on the other paragraph. Romney in charge would do all he could to continue the Progressive/Communist agenda. Both Obama and Romney were communist in their early twenties this is beyond dispute really. Just as much evidence Romney was as Obama. Although Romney got it from his real father as opposed to Obama only through his Mother and her friends/relatives.

So if you know it will take time then let us take the time but make steady progress towards undoing the damage. Thus the primary objective should be to make the Republican Party stronger and more Conservative. Make them strong enough that we do not have another repeat like in 94, 2004, 2006 and 2008 when we lost seats and identity. Mitt wins he assures the Democrats power in 2016. The Democrats have so screwed up the economy that I doubt anyone could fix it by then but Mitt proposes nothing that would come close to fixing it and no one should believe anything Mitt says. Mitt lies just as much as Obama. Even today his lie was repeated about him not raising taxes in Mass. He did by 700 million. A lot in Mass.

the_nile on August 11, 2012 at 4:30 PM

How.

Romney wining could be considered the best possible outcome by a Democrat really thinking about the future for the Democratic Party.

Mitt wins they have another juicy target to shat all over. They will hit him with so much shat that it will go over and destroy any Republican anyway associated with Mitt. Mitt will not have nearly enough seats in the Senate so will fix nothing really. Perhaps minor things (if you believe what Mitt is saying I say he is lying).

Blaming Bush no longer works so here comes Mitt for a fresh new target.

How is that anything close to status quo?

No Obama staying President is status quo. Chavez give me a break. A President always had far more power there. So he had to change far less and the people were very accepting of a Dictator. Obama has none of those advantages. The investigations are working and the word is getting out. But no Romney wants the investigations shut down. Why? Simple then he can be the new King. He can enrich the people he chooses instead of the ones Obama chose. Simple as that.

Make them strong enough that we do not have another repeat like in 94, 2004, 2006 and 2008 when we lost seats and identity. Mitt wins he assures the Democrats power in 2016. The Democrats have so screwed up the economy that I doubt anyone could fix it by then but Mitt proposes nothing that would come close to fixing it and no one should believe anything Mitt says. Mitt lies just as much as Obama. Even today his lie was repeated about him not raising taxes in Mass. He did by 700 million. A lot in Mass.

There is no one out there who has been running that would be able to do what you want.
You seem to be wishing for some magical hero & all there is is humans on this planet, bub.
So go ahead & vote for Obama. Hopefully, by encouraging my 18yo HS students to go & vote their conscience, your vote for communism will be negated.
Have a nice day.

It’s the same for them as it was for people who only got their news from the 3 networks.

Badger40 on August 11, 2012 at 4:51 PM

I’m still not convinced this pick isn’t suicidal. Rubio would have energized the tea party base and probably picked up a good % of hispanic vote without making mediscare/granny cliffdiving front and center. if obeyme is re-elected, we are finished. the risk is too high to give the dems this issue. up til today, all they had was smearing romney which won’t work. now they can smear and lie about ryan’s budget from here til nov 6.

republicans have not won these ideological debates. when W tried to Optionally privatize social security, he got slaughtered. what makes anyone think it will be so different this time, enough to stake the entire campaign on it, on an election that was romney’s to lose. he may have just lost it. please convince me otherwise.

phillysfinest on August 11, 2012 at 4:52 PM

Then you are completely on-board the Tea Party movement and Sarah Palin’s efforts to do same?

right.

Tenwheeler on August 11, 2012 at 4:44 PM

Indeed 100%.

Tell me how Mitt winning would further that goal.

Sarah was also in Iowa. She is making it as clear as politically acceptable that she is not in favor of Mitt wining. As a politician you simply can not come out as I do and say. We are better off if Mitt loses this. A Mitt win is a huge loss for the Tea Party.

Steveangell on August 11, 2012 at 4:53 PM

If we make the election just about sterile and unappetizing economic issues, this will work against us because people will be too bored, they’ll tune out (and be more likely to vote O because they won’t hear the conservative message so much).

Terrye on August 11, 2012 at 4:27 PM

Hi Terry! I see your perspective, but the problem could be that, even if you don’t have a job, if they present things in too textbooky of a way, people tune out. Not that they disagree per se, but if it’s too dry, they can just go watch American Idol. And for the (approximately) half of the population that doesn’t think O is the cause of the economic issues or think Romney wouldn’t be any better, we have to secure their vote through the other issues.
And think in their shoes. These Dem leaning independents voters have a hybrid conservative / leftist fusion of different viewpoints. Just looking at one salient issue: gay marriage. The intensity of opposition is high, so Dem leaners will move to us on that single issue — but again, as I suggested before, only if Romney seems committed and passionate and trustworthy on it. If Romney seems like just another “evolver,” they will likely vote for O because on many of the other issues they agree with O. Ryan can help!!!

you missed my point. i’m using bush’s attempt to deal with entitlements (in that specific case ss) which got hammered. it was OPTIONAL, yet the dems scared everyone saying you’d lose it. they will do the same with medicare.

the country is filled with low info voters who will be told by the msm hundreds of times that ryan/romney will steal your medicare. i just don’t see the wisdom of having this high risk debate now. you don’t see the obamunists putting out any plan. that way it can’t get slammed. i have total respect for romney’s team, but this decision makes no sense to me. they just took an election that would be a total referendum on obama’s miserable 4 yrs of statism and made it a debate about the repubs ending medicare. how is that a smart strategic decision?

phillysfinest on August 11, 2012 at 5:06 PM

In a nutshell, the Democrats’ class-warmongering amounts to not even a drop in the bucket of bringing down our national deficit, and would do untold harm to economic growth to boot. Kind of makes it all the more galling that hiking taxes on the wealthy is pretty much Obama’s central campaign platform right now, doesn’t it?

Erika, Obama himself explained this in very clear terms when he was asked a shockingly good question by Charlie “never heard of it” Gibson in the Democrat primary debate on ABC.

It is not about revenue, the deficit, or balancing the budget.

It is about fairness.

I think that little clip should be resurrected and paired with “you didn’t build that” in a relentlessly aired SuperPAC ad real soon.

Paging American Crossroads.

How do you conservatives, or those of you who think yourself to be conservative, feel about TARP? How do you feel about the stimulus? How do you feel about the auto/union bailouts? How do you feel about increased spending and raising the debt ceiling? How do you feel about expanding SCHIP? How do you feel about the president making appointments without Congressional approval?

Do you think someone in favor of all of these things is fiscally sound? Do you think these are examples of limited government or big government? Do you think Joe Biden is against any of these? Do you think Obama is against any of these?

I am thinking this is all a set up.

Paul Ryan voted for the big Government Obama wanted. Anything but physical strong policies.

Then he pulls this lecture to Obama. Then he pulls his Budget that hardly went far enough but was widely acclaimed by the Establishment.

I am thinking Paul Ryan is thinking we are the chickens and he is the fox.

He is a very good lawyer. But remember a lawyer fights for his client right or wrong. Who is Paul Ryans client?

It has been clear for months this is who Mitt Romney wanted. But never clear why he wanted Paul Ryan. Mitt is smart enough that he knew he would have to do something to get the VP he actually wanted and has been planing this since 2005. I bet he has worked with Ryan for years.

and you think that going tepid and safe would have been enough for Romney to win the elections, I don’t think so…it’s not about what it is strategic or not at this point, it is about being bold, and Romney showed he’s got appetite for a fight with his pick…we are in deep shite, if we don’t talk about these things now, and offer substantive solutions, as unpleasant as the medicine might be, then when….enough with the sugar coating of reality, you cannot hide forever behind ‘oh, there are so many low information voters in this country’, yes there are, but it’s a reality we have to deal with, not hide from…if he/Romney chose not to fight and go T-Paw or Portman or other garden variety ‘safe choices’ in the VP area, it would have been all about his taxes, the dog on the roof of his car, his heartless, ruthless capitalist ways, how he killed Sopic’s wife, etc. Obama campaign was shaping our candidate already and defining him, in case you didn’t notice..did that look like a winning strategy to you (I am talking about Romney winning here) ??…like this they will be forced back into substantive policy issues territory, which the Dims are total disaster at, reason why they are desperately trying to avoid that sort of confrontation, over substantive issues and policy…yes, the low information voter is a reality that we have to live with, but just tip toeing around them constantly, walking on egg shells so as not to offend their stupidity, pretending they are not there or that they are not going to get what this campaign is all about if only Romney could refrain from saying scary words such as SS or medicare, would make us look as dumb as them…the purpose is to educate and elevate these people, give them a chance to raise above their plantatation moocher level that they have brought themselves to through their mental laziness and voluntary enslavement to mindless entertainment and such, not for us to go down to their level and pick ‘safe’ choices for their sake…

Second, I’m beyond tired of your prattling about how Mitt Romney is a communist, “just like Obama”. It’s a flat-out lie. I’ve never been a Romney supporter, but with Ryan on the ticket I’ve become one. I know one thing for sure, R&R won’t have Muslim Brotherhood operatives in high places in their administration. Being a woman, who is categorically opposed to Sharia Law and radical Islam, I’d say that’s enough for me.

I believe Mitt is exactly who he said he was in 2002 – 2005. 2005 is when he decided to run for President. I do not believe a word he has said since. He sounded genuine in 2002 I hated what he said but he said it like he really believed it. No longer. He just sounds like any other Democrat who will say anything to get elected. Oft times caught telling bold faced lies.

totherightofthem on August 11, 2012 at 5:46 PM

Let us see. Mitts dad thought Saul Alinsky was the greatest man he had ever known.

He proved this by going over to Paris where Mitt in his twenties interested for his dad as the North Vietnamese (communist) spoke French but not English. He then went to Moscow and Vietnam and came home saying that the Americans were doing the “brainwashing” and that the North Vietnamese were kind loving people who would bring great things to the South. The North did eventually get the South and millions upon millions were murdered Pol Pot yes that was the North Vietnamese communist puppet. Mitt was his dads spokesman in his unsuccessful 1964 run for President on surrendering to North Vietnam.

Then in 2008 Mitt put his hard Communist dad’s picture on his buss.

About the same amount of proof we had Obama was a communist in 2008.

You can look it up there is much more.

Steveangell on August 11, 2012 at 6:03 PM

I read that link. It doesn’t say what you think it says. Plenty of people were against the Vietnam War, which was escalated by a Democrat, if I recall correctly. That didn’t make them communists. Nothing on that page suggests to me that George Romney was a communist. More progressive than I would like? Most definitely. A communist? No. The history behind the Vietnam War is intensely complicated as is the myriad of reasons while people were against it. My parents were not in favor of that war and to suggest that they were communist would be laughable. I was against the war, what I understood of it at the time, anyway. I’m no communist. George Romney’s beliefs were naive and outgrowths of deeply held faith in his religion, not the religion of communism.

Steveangell, they make medications for your various psychiatric afflictions.

Resist We Much on August 11, 2012 at 6:25 PM

I’ll go one step further. My impression of George Romney, after reading that passage, is that he was deeply saddened by the Vietnam War and the utter waste of lives that occurred during it. We clearly went into that war without a plan to win and eventually, acted to lose. That is beyond reprehensible. To put our young men and women in harm’s way only to pull support from them and leave them hanging is far more morally bankrupt that trying to win. That’s what I see George Romney as feeling at the time.

gee who does that sound like? only this guy doesn’t have a bad back , apparently is devoted to his family, and doesn’t have a brother who likes driving girls into water filled ditches. oh and ryan is a republican.

republicans needed to start clearing out the old dead gop next in line wood- it was good that at least mccain sensed it and picked a truly conservative, vital young woman not entrenched in the beltway. ryan is perfect in this sense- he is in the beltway but certainly less of a republicant wonk than mittenz.

and he’d be the deciding vote in the senate- an added super plus.

and he’s super cute- what is not for women and some men to love? he’s adorable and manly all at once.

But not Obama no he is a different kind to be feared.

Can not have it both ways.

I just feel sorry for you if you could care less that the Communist North Vietnamese murdered millions. Were those lives somehow not worth saving?

Yes because of traitors like Jane Fonda and George Romney the war became unpopular and because of politicians unwinable eventually. But those traitors should have been tried and inprisoned. Consorting with the enemy is treason by law. The Communist beat us then and now people like you say. Communist hey they are not that bad. Well ignore them at your peril.

Ayres estimated a quarter of Americans would have to be murdered after he gained control of America. Is that also fine with you and Romney?

Steveangell on August 11, 2012 at 6:46 PM
