So Paul Ryan is to be named Romney's running mate.
Paul Ryan will be named Mitt Romney's running mate on Saturday, ending weeks of speculation about the No. 2 slot on the GOP ticket.
The Associated Press and several TV networks confirmed the news about the Wisconsin lawmaker. By about 2:35 a.m. ET, RomneyRyan.com went live as a website.
Ryan, 42, is best known as the chairman of the House Budget Committee and author of a dramatic plan to overhaul Medicare, the government-run health insurance program for senior citizens.
Does anyone know anything about Paul Ryan? Because I sure as fuck don't and I'm inclined to know a thing or two about politics. It all sounds like a repulsive rich white guy nominated weinery suckup college republican as a running mate.
Though tossing around the phrase "Repulsive rich guy" when talking about elections is redundant. And also when not talking about elections
Paul Ryan had a notorious plan revealed in 2010, which went to a vote in the House of Representatives, which called for the abolition of Medicare/Medicaid, and tax cuts for the wealthy that made Bush's look like scratches.
The nearest I can assume is that Paul Ryan is apparently a super ideological radian and libertarian. In short, fuck this party ticket. I remember hearing a piece on NPR on how he has his plan that wants to gut all those things, yet throughout his entire life he's lived off the public sector. The only jobs he had was for a month as a "marketing rep" for his family business-a paycheck of about a grand.
He is sick and tired of the uppity unions but has received social security for most of his life (sadly his father passed away when he was a teen) and then went on to public sector jobs. He touts the private sector but has literally never held a job unless you count driving an Oscar Meyer Weinermobile for a summer.
It's like the phone call was something like this; "Hi, this is chief of staff Bob whatsitname from the Romney campaign. Look, I know this is short notice, but can you send us the closest real life equivalent to a villain from Game of Thorns? That would be real awesome, thanks in advance.
May as well say it now - congrats to you Barack Hussein Obama on your victory in November. That was some landslide of a win.
