Paul Ryan addresses the Values Voter Summit

I don’t agree with everything he says here but I thought this part was awesome:

It is true that President Obama had a lot of problems not of his own making. But he also came in with one-party rule, and the chance to do everything of his own choosing. The Obama economic agenda failed, not because it was stopped, but because it was passed.

And here is what we got: Prolonged joblessness across the country. Twenty-three million Americans struggling to find work. Family income in decline. Fifteen percent of Americans living in poverty.

The record is so uniformly bad that maybe you’ve noticed something: President Obama himself almost never even uses the word “record,” – that is, except when he’s trying to trade on the record of Bill Clinton. In his convention speech, the President never once said that simple word, “record.”

He didn’t say the word “stimulus,” either, because he wasted $831 billion of borrowed money. At a time of mass unemployment, he didn’t even say “unemployment,” because we’re in the slowest recovery since the Great Depression. And by the way, he didn’t use the word “recovery,” either – never mind that recovery was what all America expected from Barack Obama.

He wants us to forget all of these things, and lately he’s been trying out a new tactic. It’s a classic Barack Obama straw man: If anyone dares to point out the facts of his record, why then, they’re just being negative and pessimistic about the country. The new straw man is people hoping for the decline of America.

These parts were pretty good too:

His whole case these days is basically asking us to forget what he promised four years ago, and focus instead on his new promises. That’s a fast move to get around accountability. He made those ringing promises to get elected.

Without them, he wouldn’t be president. And now he acts as if it is unfair to measure his performance against his own words. But here’s the question: If Barack Obama’s promises weren’t good then, what good are they now?

If we renew the contract, we will get the same deal – with only one difference: In a second term, he will never answer to you again.

Everyone knows that President Obama inherited a bad economy. And four months from now, when Mitt Romney is sworn in as president, he will inherit a bad economy.

But here’s the difference. When a Romney-Ryan administration takes office, we will also take responsibility. Instead of dividing up the wealth, our new president will get America creating wealth again.

But don’t take my word for it. Watch it for yourself.

    When possible I try to listen to the candidates directly rather than letting some bloviating gasbag “interpret” what was said.

    Damn, I just realized what I literally forgot to do.

    I was gonna put “literally” in all my sentences this week.

    Bless their hearts, Fox carried literally the whole literally speech literally live. There’s something about watching it live too. Cspan’s always a good source to go to the video clips, you know they’re not edited (I literally think). Also, loved the Rombo response to the photo op eulogy to the embassy fallen, He shared a personal moment, it was so much better than how I described on the last thread. I described the pride, but not what brought him to that airport.

    On another front, Herman Cain is alive and well over at:

    Yes our US credit rating went from AA to AA- Was the lovely tribute at Andrews today…..a SQUIRREL ! /snork

    Oh, this is too funny. The Dems are suddenly touting a new poll showing that Obama is massively increasing Jewish support. Srsly. Better than 2008 even!

    They have become a parody. Watch for more new polls suddenly popping up to show his support is at FOUR THOUSAND PERCENT MORE!!! than 2008!!!!

    • Constance says:

      I don’t see how Jews could vote for Obama?! He totally snubbed Israel, sure the Corporate Media is trying to walk it back and cover up for Obama, as usual, but they have sacrificed all credibility.

    Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney are the right men for the now. Both know numbers, work hard to find solutions and have honor.
    As far a foreign policy, Mitt worked with people from all over the world with big egos and got the job done.
    there is a long standing mess to clean up, these two are willing to try to get it cleaned up

  6. HELENK says:

    there is something seriously wrong with tweety tingles literally

  7. myiq2xu says:

    when it becomes available get the video of Charles Krauthammer on Hannity tonight . He nails it

  10. myiq2xu says:

    The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has reached “can’t put down” stage so y’all will have to excuse me for a while.

  11. HELENK says:

    there is something in the koolaide.

    with everything going on this guy wants illegal immigrants to unionize

    • Lulu says:

      He wants part of the dues. The public employees unions are about to shrink drastically when collective bargaining is limited which mean membership falloff. The Democratic parasites need new blood.

  12. HELENK says:

    Charles Krauthammer from this afternoon. there will be another one of him on hannity that should be available later
