We’ve heard about the kooky right wing politicians in the "Freedom Caucus," but what about the smart budget wonk who is apparently going to reign them in? Now that House Republicans have nominated Paul Ryan to be speaker of the House, he is pledging to get things done and be the grown up in the room.
Um, this is the same Paul Ryan who proposed numerous draconian budgets that just didn’t add up, right? What he proposed in the past and was initially seen as crazy-right-wing-applesauce, has now earned him a top spot as a wise budget sage and unifying figure. Methinks we’re still in for some serious fights.
The Freedom Caucus is so nutty, they think Paul Ryan, the guy who wants to privatize Social Security, abolish corporate income taxes, estate taxes and capital gains taxes, is a bit of a RINO squish. Well, at least we know the Ryan speakership won’t be boring, yikes. In the meantime, enjoy the cartoon and be sure to read about some of the past Ryan proposals.
some see him as their salvation tho get it done in congress, for a young guy coming in after decades of tradition and now a new party of splintered factions who are not seeing him in the same light issuing ultimatums which they appear to have accepted but remember they promised jobs 2010 and a whole bunch of crap 2014 but the news still reports Pres.'s accomplishments and their kindergarten demeanor of little Joey talked mean to me and we don't really want any others in our country. and most glaring this guy is a liar he lied throughout the entire 2012 election cycle with Romney.http://www.businessinsider.com/paul-ryans-speech-proves-the-new-political-truth-its-fine-to-lie-2012-8
Now, says Jeff Greenfield, the veteran political analyst and Yahoo News columnist, the media is held in such low regard by Americans that getting called out for lying merely serves to confirm a widespread belief that the "liberal media" has an axe to grind against conservative politicians.
As a result, the whoppers that dominated Republican VP candidate Paul Ryan's convention speech last night will likely not hurt the candidate's standing with Republican voters, says Greenfield. Rather, they'll reinforce the right-wing view that the media is "in the tank" for President Obama.
For those who do care about the truth, though, it's worth noting that even FOX News described Ryan's speech as "deceiving." (The FOX columnist, Sally Kohn, also called the speech "dazzling" and "distracting." And Ryan did have some wonderful lines, especially one about how the job market is so bad that today's college graduates have nothing to do but go home to their parents houses and lie on their beds staring at "fading posters" of Obama.)
notice of late they have ramped up their lie about a so called "liberal media", and how it's promoting that agenda but take a stroll through the Sunday shows all channels and note who it seems gets the most air time and whose past and present lies are left dangling with no correction and look at Fox allegedly the highest rated rated cable news channel headed by a rebuked and habitual liar and the others that make up and push republican not liberal positions.
there are medias that are more inclined to advance truth in reporting but don't get the notoriety of a Fox that is notorious for misleading misinformation. reminiscent of those words from the movie "the usual suspects",
The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist
