The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Ryan’s simple, deadly truth

Written By: Bob - Aug• 30•12

Poor, poor Joan Walsh. The Salon sob was so bowled over by Rep. Paul Ryan’s Republican National Convention speech that she was reduced to parroting Obama Campaign tweets, a tack taken by several hysterical  peers.

In each and every instance these deflated, listless Obama apologists were reduced to misquoting Ryan’s speech in order to savage it. The simple, deadly fact is that Paul Ryan spoke the truth about Barack Obama’s many failures as President (Janesville was just one MSM lie), and asked the key question that no Democrat wants voters to think about:

“So here’s the question: Without a change in leadership, why would the next four years be any different from the last four years?”

Indeed.

It is Obama’s failure that has Democrats in a panic. It’s the economy, stupid.

This is why you’ve seen desperate attempts by the Obama campaign and their coordinating surrogates in the media to baffle and distract Americans from the substantive arguments that the 2012 election should be about. This is why they’ve attempted to link an obscure Republican Senate candidate’s idiotic statements about rape and pregnancy to Ryan and Romney, even though they were among the first to call him to withdraw his candidacy. This is why Democrats tried to make a mountain out of a molehill, twisting Chick-fil-A COO’s comments to a Christian magazine about his support for traditional marriage as an attack on gays it most clearly was not.

Democrats are fighting scared in a defensive campaign in 2012 markedly different from the hope and change theme of 2008. In four short years, they’ve gone from a campaign where they were optimistic that they could make socialism palatable to America, to a current snarling campaign of slander, deception, misdirection, and fear.

The radical left cannot allow American voters to focus on substantive issues this election cycle. If they do, Barack Obama is going to be sent back home to Chicago with his tail between his legs, defeated in a landslide that will also likely see the Democrats lose control of the Senate and lose more seats in the House of Representatives.

Barack Obama is unfit to lead. Paul Ryan’s 35 minute address last night methodically made that perfectly clear.

    Simple. There isn’t going to be another stimulus, so without a change of leadership (and if you believe spending $800 billion must do something), it will probably be worse.
