An Alaskan journalist's perspective on local and national issues

Well, Mitt Romney has come out with his pick for Vice President.  This pick has turned more than a couple of heads.  Many are confused, some are amused, others actually wonder what this will mean for Mitt Romney.  I am one of the second and third category.  Actually, wait, just second.  I already know what it will do for Mitt Romney’s campaign.

For those who don’t know, Paul Ryan is a Representative with a lot of REALLY stupid ideas.  The first is that the poor need to pay more taxes than the rich.  For real, he has tried to argue that position to his own constituents.  Of course, since people in this country are that stupid, they booed him off like the idiot that he is.

He also believes that Medicare should be completely sacked, replaced instead with a vouchers system.  Man, what kind of idiot is Mitt Romney?  The only, and I do mean only strategy that he can have for this election is to play to the elderly vote.  You think the elderly are going to want to get rid of Medicare?

He also says that Social Security is a ponzi scheme, and he wants to get rid of it.  Again, what was Romney thinking?  The elderly people of this country, who benefit more than any other group from social security, you think that they are just going to jump on board and totally be behind getting rid of something that they benefit from and paid into?  Oh, and he says this while defending Wall Street and the TBTF banks who orchestrated actual ponzi schemes.  Gotta love the consistency there.

He also has called out the military.  When Obama proposed cutting defense spending, and several military generals came out and said that it wouldn’t harm our nation’s military at all, and we could still have a very successful military force.  Ryan said that they are liars.  In doing so, he also hinted that they are cowards.  Simply towing the White House line.  Wow, he is calling our nation’s military leaders cowards.  What conservative will get on board with that?  Well, since facts don’t seem to matter much to them, who knows.

Ryan has also voted against LGBT couples being able to adopt children in D.C.  He has basically said that it is better for a child to be a ward of the state and live in the hell that is our foster system, than it is for a child to have a loving home with loving parents.  That is evil.  That’s like strangling a puppy after killing a kitten evil.

This is the person that Mitt Romney has picked to run with him.  This socially backwards, morally bankrupt, intellectual broke character who cares only about getting his agenda for Wall Street done.  Granted, Obama isn’t much better in being a slave for Wall Street, but still, he isn’t this bad.

So, what effect will this have on Romney’s presidential bid?  Well, it is going to sink it.  More and more, it looks like Romney is deliberately trying to lose.  It’s like he knows that he has no chance, so he just wants to see how much damage he can do to the Republican image before he does.  This is just another nail in the coffin.

For real, liberals across America are going to run as fast as they can to the polls, because these two are so bat-shit crazy that the idea of having them in office is going to scare the crap out of them.  As it should.  These two are horrible people, in every sense of the word.

So, what needs to be said about Paul Ryan?  Well, he’s the gaping hole that is going to sink Mitt Romney’s campaign.
