Paul Ryan: We Have a Wiener!

Paul Ryan: We Have a Wiener!
Finally, there’s a winner in the Republican Veepstakes. Mitt Romney’s VP running mate is Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan (R, WI-1). He once drove the Wienermobile for Oscar Meyer, and that was his last honest job. He’s peddled his bologna as a DC political hack ever since.

Ryan won his first election in 1988 when fellow students at Joseph A. Craig High School voted him Prom King and “Biggest Brown-Noser.” After college graduation in 1992 he worked for Senator Bob Kasten (R – WI), was hired by Empower America (now known as FreedomWorks. a Tea Party’s “astroturf” group), and wrote speeches for Republican Vice Presidential candidate Jack Kemp which helped the GOP lose the 1996 Presidential election. Mr. Ryan briefly worked for Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS) before being elected to Congress in 1998, where he’s been ever since, wheeling and dealing, preaching thrift and drinking $350 Pinot Noir with lobbyists. That’s the career of Paul Ryan, DC Outsider.

Mr. Ryan wants to privatize Medicare and Social Security, thinks fascist novelist Ayn Rand wrote “how-to” books and that trickle-down economics and deregulation didn’t really crash the economy. His favorite diversionary ploy is ranting about the National Debt, then offering up a plan that would make the problem worse. A tireless political ideologue, he’s a key obstruction in the Congressional gridlock that’s paralyzed the government and the economy. What perfect qualifications for someone who would be one sausage link away from the Presidency.
