We can rebuild him....we can make him faster, stronger.

The look on Timmy's face will be totally worth it.

Who's Ronald Reagan? Is he related to John Galt?

at least he trashed Timmy! i have feeling this jerkoff Ryan will be net asset to Romney. bottom line i just can't stand any of these people. now if Ryan lied and said elect us and we'll dissolve the fed and get the hell out of the stock market and shrink gov and lower taxes, then at least that'd be a lie worth entertaining, but i'm still not voting for any of these losers.

sounds like Ryan Paul's mother is Ayn Rand.

Can anybody in his right mind get randy about Ayn?

I mean that's worse than pain, its truly Cain county cuntry! 

So based on this analogy Rand Paul is Abel.

Maybe he will finish like him as well! 

Meanwhile Mitt the Mormon heads for the White house in the  Delaware plain. Doesn't rain in that plain except dirty banksta frogs and dirtier lobbyists!

Ryan voted for the TARP bailout and the Republican expansion of Medicare. Ayn Rand would have favored neither.

Ayn Rand was also an Athiest, so wouldn't have talked about Christ all the time either.

LOL. Who is down voting me? Ayn Rand Objectivism and Christianity are logically incompatible ideologies because Objectivism promotes Atheism, yet the Christian Right in this country manages to trample logic on a daily basis by holding aloft both Jesus and Ayn simultaneously.

The negative qualities associated with so called greed are most often the result of high time preference performance rather than low time preference performance. The common example is found in the story The Goose that Laid the Golden Egg. A desire to acquire golden eggs does not cause the negative outcome, a desire to possess all the golden eggs immediately through efforts which destroy the means of golden egg production causes the negative outcome.

Slightly modified Alinski bullshit:

Instead of

Demand that they offer not just “a solution”, but THE solution. Obviously, no one person has “the” solution. When he fails to produce the miracle you requested, dismiss his entire argument and all the facts he has presented as pointless.

you are using

Demand that someone not just “live as an example”, but as THE perfect example. Obviously, no one person has lived “the” perfect life. When the person fails to be the miracle you requested, dismiss his/her entire arguments and all the facts he/she has presented as pointless.

According to Romney ... Ryan to be next President!!!

What a frickin brilliant move - in a John McCain kind of way.

Romney/Ryan will make McCain/Palin seem like a good idea!

Mitt has temporarily taken his foot out of his mouth in order to shoot himself in it

Not to worry. The Romney/Ryan ticket is the recipe for an Obama victory in November.

But WTF -- Obama? Romney? Opposite sides of the same coin. Nothing changes.
