Emails shed light on Ryan, Walker relationship
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | October 27, 2012 | SCOTT BAUER w/ Ted Bridis, Jack Gillum and Andrew Miga in Washington/Roger Schneider in Milwaukee

...The emails reviewed by the AP offered an unusual, behind-the-scenes glimpse of the interpersonal relationship between Ryan and Walker. Although as a congressman Ryan's emails are exempt from disclosure under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act, messages sent by Ryan or his aides to Walker or the governor's staff are subject to Wisconsin's open records law. The week after Ryan was tapped as Romney's vice presidential candidate, the AP requested all such emails since Walker was elected in November 2010. It received 1,037 pages of them late Friday....

Gee, just imagine if they were ever interested in digging up some dirt on one Barrack Hussein Obama?

Wouldn’t take much of a shovel, would it?

These aren’t even emails between Walker and Ryan. These are between Walker’s people and Ryan’s people. YAWN.

They found nothing damaging.

Another October dud!

If only the MSM had vetted Barack Obama as thoroughly as it vets Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, we might have been spared all that we lived through the past four years.

See,right there..if anyone was half paying attention they couldn’t help but notice that they ignored 0bama while Romney and Ryan they dig around like a pig looking for tuffles.

Some who never noticed before are starting to wake up.
Although, a scary number are competely clueless or sellouts.
Would love to see the losers and cheaters get their legs pulled out from under them during a Romney Admin but I’m not holding my breath.

My God....you mean that the Governor of a state and one of that state’s Congressional representatives actually *talk* to each other.Why,next you’ll be telling me that that Rep actually asked said Governor if there was anything he could do for the state!

Oh, I guess if Ryan or Walker gave a 'stand' down order to anyone in those emails the MSM wouldn't be a bit interested. < /eyeroll>

Especially if people died!

Beat me to it! I’ll bet Ryan has even had lunch with Walker, or a meeting in Walker’s office.

Just hope they’re not talking about selling Ryan’s congressional seat after he becomes vice-president.

Oops... That would be Obama and Blagojevich. Never mind.

I imagine that the 5 reporters credited in the story broke the 1,037 emails into 205 pages to make it easier.

They were probably looking for a statement that Ryan hates Walker so that they could scare old people who use walkers that Medicare will no longer be providing them and that they would be pushed over the cliff.

I wonder does AP also know that Ryan was working for the Empower America lobbying group back in the middle 1990's, when the head of Empower America back then, Steve Forbes, said Ryan was one of the smartest persons working for that organization. As such, Ryan very well knew of Forbes' 1996 proposal for a no-loophole flat tax, and may have helped in its formulation.

It is quite true that the MSM does NOT want to discuss President Obama's past, because there is a lot of very embarrassing details such as the questionable way he got into Columbia and Harvard, his known heavy use of illegal drugs back then, his known association with hard-line Leftist political activists and leaders, and even the murky nature of his birthplace.

Is the MSM trying to tar Ryan with a Walker association? Maybe they should familiarize themselves with the recall election stats. Walker is not as unpopular as they think.

Scouring throughout the night, emails between state reps about a Dome Tour? WOW.. The Ryan folks say he was too busy.. YIKES.. Hair on fire.. GASP

Excuse me, did you happen to see anything in those emails about Fast and Furious, a Dead Ambassador, or Plans the President and Russia have for after the election that could impact our lives for the safety of our Nation into the next generation? Naw? Too bad, the administration can’t find their copies either..

Keep digging for the dirt that really matters, Maybe they don’t do Capital Tours either..

Can’t wait for this putz of a prez to be swept out of office so that the stasi stenographers are free at last to write and get rich off their tell all books that they have been holding off on writing while The One has been in office.

I heard on Beck’s show that there was a bill introduced in Congress to seal all of Barry’s records during the past 4 years. Anyone know about this. Boehner better not let that see the light of day.

Is the AP asking for Obama’s emails from his time in the Illinois state senate? Didn’t think so ...

The press is not doing its legitimate job. They are the product of liberal educations and marching for the party.

No! No! It can't be true!

The staffs of a governor of a state and a congressman of the same state send emails to each other!

And I bet that there are still some Sarah Palin emails that need investigating.

Benghazigate? What's that?

Walker and Ryan are old friends and colleagues. There is not there there.
