Paul Ryan Calls Out Lib Reporter: Don’t “Stuff Words into Peoples’ Mouths” (Video)

Via Gateway Pundit, this is the kind of in your face bias our guys have to put up every day.

In an interview yesterday on ABC12 in Flint, Michigan, the reporter questioned Ryan about what he perceived to be the country’s “gun problem”.  Ryan answered him by saying this country has a “crime problem,” and proceeded to offer conservative solutions to inner city crime. The liberal reporter responded by sneering, “and you can do all that by cutting taxes?”

A slightly rattled Ryan replied, “those are yours (words) not mine.”

After his mic came off, Ryan said, “That’s kinda strange — trying to stuff words into people’s mouths.”

The reporter mumbled, “I don’t know if that’s strange….” and Ryan insisted, “you were trying to answer the question for me – I think that’s a little odd…” The reporter started stammering something in reply but was cut off.

It may seem odd to a fair minded person, but to the lib media it’s all in a days work.

Video: Paul Ryan Builds on Romney’s Foreign Speech in Toledo OH

Standing in front of a group of veterans, Republican Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan spoke to a crowd of about 1000 supporters gathered inside the Grand Aire terminal at Toledo Express Airport, Monday.

GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan rallied newly energized supporters today, building on presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s hawkish foreign policy speech that was relayed live to the crowd.

Making his first trip to the Toledo area as a vice presidential candidate, Mr. Ryan spoke in the Grand Aire aviation service business hangar at Toledo Express Airport where he was greeted by more than 1,000 people. He spoke against a backdrop of military veterans who were flanked by World War II military Jeeps and trucks.

“The President is not offering the kind of spirited and principled leadership we need to create jobs here at home or to keep us safe. Because President Obama does not have a good record to run on he has resorted to try and distort ours,” Mr. Ryan said.

“If you go home after this and turn on your TV, you will likely see the failures of the Obama foreign policy unfolding before our eyes. You see, if you look around the world, what we are witnessing is the unraveling of the Obama foreign policy. Four Americans were murdered in. a. terrorist. attack. in Benghazi. The point is, in a Romney administration, when we know that we are clearly attacked by terrorists, we won’t be afraid to say what it is. If terrorists attack us, we will say we had a terrorist attack and more importantly, we will do  what is necessary to prevent that from happening by having a strong military by making sure that our adversaries do not test us – do not think we’re weak and in retreat.”


Robert Costa, NRO: Ryan Gets Ready: Paul Ryan’s debate mantra is “Prepare, prepare, prepare.”

For much of last week, Ryan was at Wintergreen, a sprawling resort in central Virginia. Under the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Ryan and his advisers quietly reviewed policy papers, held several mock debates, and kept distractions to a minimum. BlackBerries and iPhones were switched off, and Ryan avoided the traveling press.

Yet the Virginia sessions were not the beginning of Ryan’s prep for Thursday’s debate. Soon after the Tampa convention, Ryan convened his inner circle, which includes longtime aides such as Andy Speth and Romney hands such as Dan Senor, and asked them to compile briefing books, much like the binders he used to organize for Kemp. On the campaign plane and at his home in Janesville, Wis., Ryan has been constantly reading the policy books, using his favorite disposable blue pen to make changes.

By mid-September, Ryan had two large books with him at all times. One was for domestic policy and the other for foreign policy. Romney’s policy staff in Boston was helpful in providing information about Romney’s positions, but Ryan took it upon himself to write much of the analysis and talking points. By late September, Ryan, who often vacations in the Rocky Mountains, asked his staff to book him a few rooms at a mountain resort so he could prepare in relative silence and anonymity. The Romney campaign settled on a place in rural Virginia because Virginia is a swing state and its mountains are fairly accessible.


Romney-Ryan and Jacob Turk Campaign Volunteers Sought in Western MO

The Romney Campaign is currently recruiting volunteers in western MO to assist in this year’s election.  They mainly need people who are willing to go door-to-door with surveys of targeted neighborhoods or who can make phone calls from the phone bank at their Lee’s Summit Office.  The goal of both of these activities is to identify Republican voters and increase  party turnout on election day.  The information you would help collect is vitally important and would be reviewed directly by the Republican leadership who make decisions about where to allocate resources.

If you would like to help, their office hours are 9AM-9PM Monday-Saturday and Noon – 9PM Sundays.

Their location is 611 SW 3rd St. in Lee’s Summit, MO 64063.   You can stop by their office or call Edmund Bryak at (816) 646-3310 to get on the schedule. Email: jebryakATgmailDOTcom


The Turk campaign is also asking for volunteers to help get the word out:

1. Increase the Turk name recognition:

  • in your circle: put a Turk bumper sticker on your car, a yard sign in your yard, and get some Turk business cards to hand out to your friends at church, work, and soccer games, etc.
  • in your community: put on a Turk shirt and wear it to crowded places (Walmart, the gym, festivals, etc.), put a yard sign in your yard, ask merchants to keep Turk cards at their counter, post on Facebook & online supporting the Turk campaign & the need to unseat Cleaver
  • in the whole 5th district: contribute money towards our media buys (radio, TV, print) by clicking here

2. Make things happen:

  • volunteer some time (in the HQ office, on the phones, walking a precinct, working a Turk booth at a festival). Click here to sign up to help.
  • host a “meet Turk” event or fund raiser. Email if you wish to host one.
  • attend a fund raiser and donate some money to the mission. Watch our emails for invites! And bring a friend who has yet to meet Jacob Turk so they become a supporter, too.
  • host a Small Business Roundtable. Email if you own a business and want to host.

Don’t have a Turk shirt? Come by the HQ and get one! Call ahead and ask if we have your size in stock 816-524-6723.

Video: Paul Ryan Rocks the RNC

Reportedly, Paul Ryan worked on his speech for weeks, and it was a doozy. While it was a serious speech, he managed to zing Obama several times throughout, but as Charles Krauthammer said on Fox News afterward, it was “done more in sorrow than in anger”. It was a smart speech that addressed Medicare head on as only the wonkish Ryan can. We can already predict the unserious demagoguery the Obamacrats are going to deploy in Charlotte, next week, and it will fun to make a contrast.

Paul Ryan is sincere. He means what he says. Obama and the rest of the Dems Socialists who still stand with him will have nothing but scaremongering and lies to offer in Charlotte, and Obama’s lies are getting less convincing with each telling.

Full prepared remarks of Paul Ryan’s RNC speech, here.

My favorite lines from the speech:

With all their attack ads, the president is just throwing away money — and he’s pretty experienced at that. You see, some people can’t be dragged down by the usual cheap tactics, because their ability, character, and plain decency are so obvious — and ladies and gentlemen, that is Mitt Romney.

President Barack Obama came to office during an economic crisis, as he has reminded us a time or two. (zing!)

The stimulus was a case of political patronage, corporate welfare, and cronyism at their worst. You, the working men and women of this country, were cut out of the deal. What did the taxpayers get out of the Obama stimulus? More debt. That money wasn’t just spent and wasted — it was borrowed, spent, and wasted.

Obamacare comes to more than two thousand pages of rules, mandates, taxes, fees, and fines that have no place in a free country.

So our opponents can consider themselves on notice. In this election, on this issue, the usual posturing on the Left isn’t going to work. Mitt Romney and I know the difference between protecting a program, and raiding it. Ladies and gentlemen, our nation needs this debate. We want this debate. We will win this debate.

It all started off with stirring speeches, Greek columns, the thrill of something new. Now all that’s left is a presidency adrift, surviving on slogans that already seem tired, grasping at a moment that has already passed, like a ship trying to sail on yesterday’s wind.

President Obama was asked not long ago to reflect on any mistakes he might have made. He said, well, “I haven’t communicated enough.” He said his job is to “tell a story to the American people” — as if that’s the whole problem here? He needs to talk more, and we need to be better listeners?

Ladies and gentlemen, these past four years we have suffered no shortage of words in the White House. What’s missing is leadership in the White House. And the story that Barack Obama does tell, forever shifting blame to the last administration, is getting old. The man assumed office almost four years ago — isn’t it about time he assumed responsibility?

My Mom started a small business, and I’ve seen what it takes. Mom was 50 when my Dad died. She got on a bus every weekday for years, and rode 40 miles each morning to Madison. She earned a new degree and learned new skills to start her small business. It wasn’t just a new livelihood. It was a new life. And it transformed my Mom from a widow in grief to a small businesswoman whose happiness wasn’t just in the past. Her work gave her hope. It made our family proud. And to this day, my Mom is my role model.

President Obama is the kind of politician who puts promises on the record, and then calls that the record.

College graduates should not have to live out their 20s in their childhood bedrooms, staring up at fading Obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life.

None of us have to settle for the best this administration offers — a dull, adventureless journey from one entitlement to the next, a government-planned life, a country where everything is free but us.

We’re a full generation apart, Governor Romney and I. And, in some ways, we’re a little different. There are the songs on his iPod, which I’ve heard on the campaign bus and on many hotel elevators. He actually urged me to play some of these songs at campaign rallies. I said, I hope it’s not a deal-breaker Mitt, but my playlist starts with AC/DC, and ends with Zeppelin.

Each of these great moral ideas is essential to democratic government — to the rule of law, to life in a humane and decent society. They are the moral creed of our country, as powerful in our time, as on the day of America’s founding. They are self-evident and unchanging, and sometimes, even presidents need reminding, that our rights come from nature and God, not from government.

Catholic Deer Hunter Paul Ryan: ‘I am happy to be clinging to my guns and my religion!” (Video)

Consider this a palette cleanser for the awful Mo Rep Todd Akin/Duluth Rep. Kerry Gauthier stories.

Via Weasel Zippers:

Smart move. The R/R team needs to remind voters of every stupid thing Obama has ever said from now until election day.
