Why Paul Ryan will win it for Obama

31 August 2012, 13:14

The only way to gain credibility in the Republican Party the past few years  is by spinning a story so fictitious that truth is rendered meaningless

(Romney aide: "We're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers")

 Anything less, or any small hint of bipartisanship, will get you labeled as a politician in bed with the Democratic Party. Paul Ryan’s credibility after his speech, who’s attacks on the President were breathtakingly hypocritical. His status hasn’t diminished since last night, at least not within the ranks of the GOP:  his credibility is actually now solidified as a proper Republican stalwart for vice president.

Ryan’s list of things he has against President Obama strained his actual credibility enough to damage his own, not-quite-earned reputation as a straight shooter. He attacked Obama for failing to keep open a General Motors plant in Wisconsin – a lot of cheek  for a vice-presidential nominee whose standard-bearer wrote in recent months that the government should allow all of GM to go bankrupt.

He attacked Obama’s stimulus bill, a large percentage of which was comprised of tax cuts,which if it was a Republican they would applaud, and aid to states to cover the salaries of teachers and law-enforcement workers who would otherwise have been laid off, as political patronage, corporate welfare, and cronyism at their worst. The cronyism charge, in particular, can’t even been taken seriously by Ryan’s own GOP House colleagues, just by common sence.
