Left Reveals Insanity After Ryan VP Announcement



Saturday morning Willard "Mitt" Romney announced his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan.

Since the announcement, the ludicrous and ridiculous (not to mention unfounded) attacks against Ryan have come in a constant deluge. The claims, most intended as serious, have devolved into days of unintended self-deprecating parody conducted by the left.

Among those making a mockery of themselves is DNC Chairperson Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. DWS has gone head to head against Ryan over the PPACA and budget plans numerous times over the past three years. Each time, Ryan has used what the left considers an illegal WMD:  facts. Ryan used the actual numbers crunched by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and other non-partisan government bureaucracy bean counters. Again, Debbie has come out against Ryan and demonstrated she didn't bother to read any studies.

Then you had the unfounded allegations that Ryan participated in insider trading like Nancy Pelosi did taking IPOs from lobbyists. Not only did these allegations from devout leftist propagandists such as Matthew Yglesias prove unfounded, they proved to be more tied to Sheldon Whitehouse

Now the "grandma-tossers" are coming out of the woodwork, trying to re-engage that failed meme. In various social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter, the uneducated are at it again. In fact, the deluge of those who obviously have not read the legislation or paid attention to any actual numbers have brought allegations that, like Neal Rauhauser's Beandogs, these people are being paid to do so. Among the hard facts concerning Ryan's budget, the only thing the leftist demagogues feel (they don't think) they can attack, is that the Medicare portion does not affect anybody currently over 55.

Andrew Biggs wrote a comprehensive study of the Ryan legislation. Extracting from that study, gives a great 100-word bomb that destroys all the left's inaccurate talking points concerning Ryan's budget plans.

Ryan's plan does have problems. One of them is that it will take a projected 30 years to balance the budget. The second is that it does not cut spending, just retards spending increases. Libertarians and many TEA Party activists would rather a more aggressive plan that cuts actual government spending and reduces the bloated bureaucracy. However, the Ryan Plan is a start. It is far better than anything else that has been proposed in recent years. In addition, it stands to gain more votes in congress than Obama's abysmal attempts at a budget, which received zero votes in congress. 

Meanwhile, the truth is that it is Obama and his socialist sycophants that want to toss grandma off a cliff and under a speeding freight train:




It has become more and more apparent that the leftist demagogues and their useful idiots need to head to the local library. The library has books for Second through Sixth grades that teach basic math skills. The library also has books to assist in learning how to read. Then again, we know that they don't read. If they did, how many of them would have still voted for the PPACA if they had read it?
