Ryan's speech gives undecided voters mild nudge toward Romney

Tampa, Florida (CNN) - Just a few hundred yards from the podium where Paul Ryan spoke to the roaring Republican faithful, 27 undecided Florida voters listened intently to his words.

In their hands, they held electronic audience reaction dials, twisting them back and forth to record their approval or disapproval second by second, giving instant feedback and real-time ratings of the speech.

    Who is really going to be running this country if Mitt gets elected? Sheldon Adelson,Donald Trump, the Koch brothers,Paul Ryan, Boehner and Cantor? Certainly not Mitt because if you take a good look he looks bewildered and overwelmed by it all.He hasn 't even given us a plan for how he's going to turn this country around.He looks like"well gee,I'll have to think of something,but it looks like his pals are going to be running the show unless the wife steps in.Wait until the poor and middleclass find out what these folks have in store for you.Do you really think this bunch is looking out for you? Let's see some tax returns! Romney and Ryan both refuse to show more than two years.Do you really want to put our future in their hands?

    Like i tell my daughter, when you lie to people, it means you don't think they deserve the truth. All the blatent lies in Ryan's speech should tell the American people exactly how he feels about them.

    When they were twisting thier gadgets what was the re-action to the inaccuracies or lies were they spotted or no re-action? Eg the Ryan state GM plant closed before Obama was President, vote wise or inauguration wise!!
    The welfare to work claims are pants on fire etc.

    As soon as they come down from that black cloud is the sky they will realize that he really said nothing. If he repeals Obamacare (SCOTUS already went through that) is he going to tell Massachusetts that they need to repeal romneycare?
    This man has said that women who have been "legitimately raped" need to carry a child to birth. He voted against the Ledbetter Act to give women the same pay as men for the same work. He was co authored with akin on H.R. 3 and I know he gave the flip flopper his taxes but I still want to the bully bishop's TAXES and BAIN SEC RECORDS!!
    We are not going to forget that because of this clown week.

    The problem is that Ryan stated a promise that Romney gave; getting 12 million jobs in 4 years. I heard no details as to how that is going to happen. Cutting regulations won't be enough if that happens at all.

    Now if these independent voters will just do a little fact checking they will see the GOP wonderboy lied through his teeth. The Wisconsin auto plant Obama promised to save but couldn't really closed on GW's watch. Ryan new this. How many viewers believed every word out of Ryans mouth? How many care that they were mislead? Probably none! FOOLS!
