1. Paint the candidate at stupid (see George W Bush, Sarah Palin, Ronald Reagan, Dan Quayle, etc)
2. Pain the candidate as old and out of touch (see George HW Bush, Ronald Reagan, Bob Dole, etc)
3. If both 1 and 2 fail, destroy opponent with petty character attacks and make them look evil
Paul Ryan is invulnerable to all these petty attacks. They have no way to combat his youthful vigor, intellectual yet down to earth nature, and boy scout reputation. He is the best kind of American success story and he appreciates it......that must drive them crazy.
Tonight was his coming out party on the national stage. Could he live up to the hype? Im sure the Democrats had every finger and toe crossed in feverish anxiety, hoping he wouldnt, but let me tell you......
Paul Ryan is everything that makes this country great. A stark contrast to the belittling, "you didnt build it", negativity of Obama and his "government is the answer" failed philosophy.
You need to decide for yourself, of course, but tonight I was reminded once again, why i am a conservative. Freedom is the best medicine for all our country's problems, and only Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are offering it as a solution. Tonight's speech stuck that to the wall with a Ted Nugent sized knife and said "Read it and weep, suckers!"
If you dont have time to watch the whole thing, check out this excellent analysis of some of the importants parts.
Paul Ryan may have just dropped the "people's elbow" on the Democrats. Im not sure how they kick out of this one....
