Game Change or Just Another Spin of the VP Roulette Wheel?
August 15, 2012
Meet Paul Ryan, the GOP congressman running to keep his seat in congress. Oh and he is also running for Vice President with Mitt Romney this year. Talk about hedging your bets! What a play this guy has. I bet he buys about 50 lottery tickets at a time. It is like playing several numbers on the same spin of the wheel.
What a waste of Wisconsin taxpayer’s expense to run Mr Ryan as a representative. What if he wins both elections? He will have to forfeit his seat in the House so he can preside in the Senate. On second thought, maybe he could do both jobs. After all the House has not done much of anything this year. Make no mistake, the GOP controls the House this year and all they have done is play golf and change the names of post offices. If things stay slow over there, he could pick up some extra hours as VP.
I had to laugh when I heard Paul Ryan’s first speech. He did a John Boehner, “Where are the Jobs Mr President?” The answer is of course, the jobs are waiting for Rep Ryan’s YES vote on President Obama’s Jobs bill back in the House of Representatives. Of course they won’t vote on that, they would rather try to blame their inaction on Obama. What a shill, what a maroon!! It was a Bugs Bunny guffaw for a minute but then I started thinking about what could happen if Paul Ryan became the next Vice President. That will be the subject of another post, because I’m not ready to descend into the darkness that the Romney/Ryan ticket signifies.
We have to hand it to Romney, however, Ryan is not vapid like Sarah Palin. Romney seems to have made a better choice than McCain in this area. He is easy on the eyes and easy on the ears if you are stuck in the permanent state of cognitive dissonance that results from overexposure to Fox News. He has the easy charming gaze of a rattlesnake about eat his next mouse. He may even charm some middle road poorly informed ‘independent’ voters.
Even if the Romney wagon doesn’t ascend into the stars, I think we will see this character on the national stage over and over until the nation figures out that the main product of the GOP is Snake Oil.
