Take a look at the GOP’s golden boy. He’s a monster.
America’s “First Principles” for the next generation. In the speech, he said Barack Obama is “committed to his ideology” that is moving us “away from the American Ideal – away from our First Principles.”
And what principles are those, Mr. Ryan?
Paul Ryan, if you are trying to position yourself for a GOP VP slot, you’ve got to do better than this:
Your foreign policy IGNORANCE is showing.
NO ONE COULD BE A BIGGER LIAR THAN YOU, PAUL “EDDIE MUNSTER” RYAN.

Monday Morning Open Thread: “Pink Slime Economics”
By Anne Laurie April 2nd, 2012
Professor Krugman reminds us not to get so distracted by the SCOTUS anti-ACA antics that we forget to keep a sharp eye on zombie-eyed granny-starver[*] Paul Ryan:
… The Ryan budget is a fraud; Mr. Ryan talks loudly about the evils of debt and deficits, but his plan would actually make the deficit bigger even as it inflicted huge pain in the name of deficit reduction. But is his budget really the most fraudulent in American history? Yes, it is.
To be sure, we’ve had irresponsible and/or deceptive budgets in the past. Ronald Reagan’s budgets relied on voodoo, on the claim that cutting taxes on the rich would somehow lead to an explosion of economic growth. George W. Bush’s budget officials liked to play bait and switch, low-balling the cost of tax cuts by pretending that they were only temporary, then demanding that they be made permanent. But has any major political figure ever premised his entire fiscal platform not just on totally implausible spending projections but on claims that he has a secret plan to raise trillions of dollars in revenue, a plan that he refuses to share with the public?
What’s going on here? The answer, presumably, is that this is what happens when extremists gain complete control of a party’s discourse: all the rules get thrown out the window. Indeed, the hard right’s grip on the G.O.P. is now so strong that the party is sticking with Mr. Ryan even though it’s paying a significant political price for his assault on Medicare.
Now, the House Republican budget isn’t about to become law as long as President Obama is sitting in the White House. But it has been endorsed by Mr. Romney. And even if Mr. Obama is reelected, the fraudulence of this budget has important implications for future political negotiations…
[W]hat we learn from the latest Republican budget is that the whole pursuit of a Grand Bargain was a waste of time and political capital. For a lasting budget deal can only work if both parties can be counted on to be both responsible and honest — and House Republicans have just demonstrated, as clearly as anyone could wish, that they are neither.
THIS: “keep a sharp eye on zombie-eyed granny-starver[*] Paul Ryan
Here’s why Eddies’ mad
Eddie Munster Ryan is still mad that the President bitchslapped his ass to his face. he’s STILL mad about that.
Yes! And it was a stinging bitch slap for the whole country to see.
Let’s remember lttle Eddie Ryan benefitted from programs like Social Security, he very program he is urging his buddies in congress to GUT. I guess this is what Ryan means by the “first principle.”
Ryan was raised as a fifth-generation Janesville resident. His father practiced law in the same building as future U.S. Senator Russ Feingold’s father. To differentiate Young Paul from Paul Sr., Ryan was nicknamed “P.D.” People often mistook this moniker for “Petey,” which caused Paul to recoil.
One day as a 16 year old, Ryan came upon the lifeless body of his father. Paul Ryan, Sr. had died of a heart attack at age 55, leaving the Janesville Craig High School 10th grader, his three older brothers and sisters and his mother alone. It was Paul who told the family of his father’s death.
With his father’s passing, young Paul collected Social Security benefits until age 18, which he put away for college. To make ends meet, Paul’s mother returned to school to study interior design. His siblings were off at college. Ryan remembers this difficult time bringing him and his mother closer.
