Romney gets Ryan's endorsement, leads Wisconsin poll

Washington (CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney picked up another major endorsement Friday when conservative favorite Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, whose state votes Tuesday, called Romney "the right person for the job."

"I am convinced that Mitt Romney has the skills, the tenacity, the principles, the courage and the integrity to do what it takes to get America back on track," Ryan said on Fox News. "I believe he is the right person for the job."

    I dont get posts like TRUTH and NOTHING but the TRUTH. The only people demonizing are people like you. I just dont get why you are so angry
    Oh you know why they are so angry. Sure you do. You just don't want to say it so that they don't accuse you of RACE-BAITING and anything else they can come up with to shut you down. Let me tell you this: speak your truth and don't be afraid of what people like Truth and Fair may call you, you have to stop and consider the source of the insult. Neither one of them is worth it. Speak the truth don't let anyone shame you into silence. That's what people like them bank on.
    Obama 2012. Seriously America.

  4. The REAL Truth

    @Truth and Nothing But the Truth – Four more years of the most divisive, class warfare socialist this country has ever known and the country will be torn apart.
    Seriously? Do you really believe that? OK, let's suppose you really do. Taken at face value then, what exactly is it that the GOP is planning for ME over the next four years that will make me better off than I am now? Hmm..
    1. Drill baby drill – the GOP already proved that they will not kill the Oilco's subsidies, which is what is [aying them NOT to drill, baby, drill. More rhetoric.
    2. FORCE Build a pipeline across the country to facilitate Canadian Oil (and Mid-West) exports, none of which is for internal use and will increase the price of gas in the midwest, and give me no relief.
    3. Remove ANY healthcare (ACA) options for me and my kids, and cause Medicare/Medicaid rolls to increase (baby boomers) as I get older as the "free market" insurance companies will dump me once I reach 65.
    4. Dismantle a fully functional SS system (would be if it got back the $4.3 TRILLION that Reagan started pillaging and is held in Us Treasury IOU's) and convert to a "private payer" system where Wall St. can continue to pillage the unwary. Given that 90% of retirees hold no more than $50,000 in life savings, and doesn't have the intelligence to balance a check book, let alone trade – that is inane.
    5. Tell women what they can and cannot do with their bodies, and ensure that the population continues to increase and produce the likes of the current crop of GOP circus clowns?
    6. De-fund education and ensure that everyone is home schooled and get's a Pink (or Blue) baby gerber concealed hand gun license at birth?
    6. Remove all EPA, SEC (and other) Regulatory bodies and open up eveything for [continued] rape and pillage by the 1%?

    Versus – recovering auto industry, removing 75% of Al Qaeda leadership (inc. OBL), highest Dow industrial average ever, increasing employment and GDP, increased stock dividends, and so on?

    Given a choice between what the GOP wants to do for me and what Obama has already done, I see little hope for the GOP in Nov. Just saying.

    "He's done more to stir hatred and division than any president in our history."

    Yes, you're right, he has. Just simply existing as the very first black POTUS was indeed set the historical high-bar for stirring up hate and divisiveness from the right.

    @The Anti Norquist – I agree and disagree. I agree that @Truth is simply angry, hateful, and disrespectful, with very little positive to add to these conversations or, I expect, to society in general. I disagree that class warfare started with the Citizens United decision. It's current run started in the 1980's when a host of tax and regulatory policy decisions put more and more power into the hands of a small segment of out society, leaving wages to stagnate for over 90% of the population and leading to one of the greatest disparities in income and wealth in the history of our country. The last time we had this kind of disparity was in the 1920's. It is no coincidence that the two greatest economic downturns followed the two biggest gaps in wealth of this century. It is too bad those on the right seem incapable of understanding the connection.

    T and NB the T-- sounds like you realize the Repub. cannot relate to the middle class. --– Remember when Pres.George I didn`t know what a loaf of bread cost, or a gallon of milk ???--- same with Romney. He would have "his people" find out.
