    It'll be funny how the Romney,Ryan duo do in Florida,those seniors down here are on top of things and they don't like political hog wash.Romney and his Ayn Rand surrogate Ryan toting his mother along for security.Ya know she can't speak of her Medicare or SocialSecurity being well off financially,she does live in a gated secluded private community in Lauderdale by the Sea,a condo there is roughly around a million bucks plus monthly maintenence fees.She's not the norm in Florida,she certainly not struggling I can assure you,her husbands million dollar construction business took care of that ..And her son Paul was smart using his deceased dads SocialSecurity death benefits to go to college,his dad was a millionaire,Pauls family wasn't struggling back then,that was illegal but that's his first taste of stealing from the government and he liked it didn't he!!So don't you hypocrites come across as sanctumonious when its your party that does two things either stealing or obstructing in government ,its a dirty fact we intelligent Democrates know you're constantly up to ,you know I'm right .Now with this Medicare,SocialSecurity and voter supression plans,we know your extremism is rabid and are aware of it too,you better watch out!!!

    Taken from a wikipedia article detailing "The Village"

    Considered a heavily Republican community, The Villages is a popular election stop[13] and platform for personalities such as former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin,[14][15] former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee[16] and talk show host/author Glenn Beck.[17]

    Ryan's right – Mitt didn't raise taxes in Mass. He tacked on over 1000 new FEES to pay for his playground.

    It is great that Paul Ryan is going to Florida to let voters hear his "real" positions/plans for Medicare, not the liberals' versions of his plans for Medicare. There is definitely a reason that Paul Ryan was elected/reelected in a Democratic district of Wisconsin 7 times--with the last time being in 2010 with 65% of the vote.

    Just get out there and let the voters hear your real words and your real plans Mr. Ryan. And, once they do--just like in Wisconsin-the voters will like what they hear!!!

    Was it only me or even others have noticed as I did that Paul Ryan dragging his mum to the audience didn't do him any good. Looking at Paul Ryan (with his accent which I get difficulties to understand), with placards infront and backwards written "MEDICARE", and Ryan talking about jobs!!!, what his boss and him will do, didn't capture what the scene was meant for. For god's sake he asked them to raise hands those who are 65 and above, and all of them raised their hands, and he still talks about jobs!!!!!! Mmmmmh way to go GOP.
