Why is a lifelong government freeloader like Ryan running as an outsider?

Besides lying about every subject, he's also a thundering hypocrite. He went to college using Social Security, started working for Congress while in college, and has been collecting taxpayer checks ever since. Since he was 18 he's never made a dime that didn't come from the taxpaying Americans. Why won't anyone in Big Media or among the Dem campaign staff ever mention this?

1. Pretty much all politicians try to run as outsiders.

2. I think he spent a summer working for his uncle at the family business -

had to be able to say he once had a job.

Can't forget McDonalds and the weiner-mobile!

3. Because you gotta be fair

Just too much else that Romney campaign does that is beyond any excuse.

Just too much for the "liberal" media to pile on with this point.

And, at this point, retaining Ryan's mantle of being the intellectual leader of the party is probably the only thing they can hope to salvage from the Romney campaign.

4. Political whores lie. He's Lyin' Ryan. What do you expect?

As for the media, it's bought and paid for.
