Tweet of the Day: Paul Ryan puckers up

(CNN) - While he tweeted this on Sunday, we thought it was too good not to post today.

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan often talked about his love for hunting and fishing during his 2012 vice presidential run–but his latest tweet seals with a kiss just how much he loves the outdoors.

    The fish is not keeper size. Is this what Paul Ryan was doing, instead of fixing student loan rates?

    Do you eat eggs? Or stuff that contains eggs? If so, then don't be a hypocrite.

    "oh that's too small, throw it back and we'll kill it when it's big"

    Nah... let's just kill it before it hatches, right?
    So you're saying that you guys are going after a woman's eggs next? Because I know that no one is going after man's best swimmers.
    Ummm... no, not at all. Humans are born, fish hatch. Analogy, you know
    Correct and in keeping with the anology....when you referred to "hatching" I naturally thought that you were staying with the analogy and referencing humans not fish.....thus my question.
    Analogy, you know, or perhaps you don't know.

    My goodness, people are unemployed and student loan rates are doubling and Paul Ryan is making out with a fish.

    No one cares about Paul Ryan. He's a douche.

    He also made it ride on the roof of his car.

    I've got something he can kiss. It's not going to smell like a fish, but he'll get used to it.

    Is he trying to prove to Conservatives that allowing gay marriage will open the doors for people to marry fish?

    This is exactly what Republicans were afraid of now that parts of DOMA were struck down. Lines have been blurred.

    I bet its a MALE fish and this is his way of coming out of the closet. Good for him.

    Reminds me of the "South Park" episode where Kanye West makes out with a "gay fish"!!!

    I expect the fish is more appealing that the puppy Obama ate (read his book)... Given the choice I'd prefer to do a little roof surfing as opposed to being consumed by a future POTUS...

    Everyone know that this guy is not very likable. He is just one of the many mean spirited republican politicians! 

    Looks like he is trying to suck the life out of it like he has tried with the sick and elderly.

    Can't wait to see Lyin Ryan and the GOBP stuff immigration reform,then Jeb Bush down the tea potty's throats Mitt the twit style. The process has begun.

    Probably not even a real fish. We all know how he like to stage these photo-ops.

    I I feel sorry for the fish. It was just trying to get a meal but he is subjected to a person that assumes that paying for dinner gets you whatever you want. The fish is thinking "I am just not that into you. Why do you have to force this on me?".
