Ryan says GOP need to pick its fights with Obama

Source: AP


BY BY KEN THOMAS, ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. Paul Ryan says Republicans need to stay united and pick their fights during President Barack Obama’s second term.

The party’s vice presidential nominee from 2012 tells conservatives that Republicans need to reject the president’s proposals in some cases and make them better in others.

The Wisconsin lawmaker said in a speech Saturday to the National Review Institute in Washington that Obama will try to divide Republicans. But Ryan says GOP lawmakers “can’t get rattled” and shouldn’t “play the villain in his morality plays.”

Ryan defends his vote on the “fiscal cliff” deal. He says that if the measure hadn’t passed, every single taxpayer would have paid higher taxes.

2. Hey Paul how about working with the President for the good of the American People ...

.... instead of "picking a fight?" You are a douche nozzle and the people
of your hometown of Janesville, WI know it too. You lost your own town by
10 points in your congressional race and you and Mittens got hammered in the
Presidential race "and also too."*

4. "Shouldn't play the villain in his morality plays"

Wow, just wow. What a way to characterize the situation. As if Obama is forcing them to be crazy and take completely extreme positions. Resist it, patriots!

5. I wonder about the timing of this...

In the light of yesterday's story:

Court: Obama appointments are unconstitutional

I wonder if it means they won't challenge the appointments, figuring they already look like such horrible obstructionists to functioning government that even more people would have their eyes opened and despise them all the more.

6. Obama appoints conservative minded people that will expose UNTRUE Conservatism. Paul Ryan

is in a third party of something other than true conservatism: The Rise of the 4th Reich.

Will he be on the ballot as a third party pick?

12. He claims to be a holier than thou Christian protecting fetuses:

Yet he wants to cut programs that fed poor children and starve them to death. He is just like the pedophile enabling bishops that he ass kisses. Nothing by a pack of hypocrites. Just a slimy scumbag.
