Paul Ryan Left Red-Faced After Obama Sweeps His Home State Of Wisconsin…As Democrats Ride To Victory In Joe Biden’s Delaware

7 November 2012

Mitt Romney's vice presidential pick Paul Ryan in the end failed to help his running mate win the White House, and to add insult to injury, the rising star of the Republican Party was left embarrassed after losing his home state of Wisconsin.

However, the congressman's night was not a complete loss as he easily won re-election to the U.S. House seat he has held since 1998 and received a ringing endorsement from his running mate.

In his concession speech early Wednesday morning, Romney lavished praised on his would-be vice president for all he has done for their campaign.

No one will ever convince me that this election wasn’t won by fraud.

What did Ryan do for the campaign? He didn’t even bring his own state! He bombed in his one debate and killed Mitt’s momentum from the first prez debate.

Rubio would have delivered FL and maybe Portman Ohio. Fat Christie wouldn’t have hugged Obama if he was the Veep.

So Ryan turned out to be the worst possible choice. His economic vision is not one shared by the majority of our freeloading voters

Rubio. We need Latinos and women votes. Huge gaps there.

Glad Ryan Stays around.

Christie is fat and women vote looks. He’s abrasive and northeast votes Dem anyway. Why pick him? He also helped Obama appear non-partisan the last week of this election.

The poor fool thinks the reported results reflect the actual votes.

Sad really.

Also he was a congressman and never won statewide office.

Reminds me of Gore. For Gore it was worse - had Gore been able to win his home state, he would have had the election in 2000.

Don't worry though, the GOP is drooling at the chance to run Jeb Bush for President in 2016.

‘’Romney is electable.’’

Same fraud as 4 years before...

‘’McCain is electable.’’

Then again, I have to admit, at the time, when the race, after rolling through liberal state after liberal state, and open primary after open primary, when it boiled down to a bunch of liberals, it did even cause me to say that the field actually made McCain look appealing.

And so we gathered around our RINO Trojan horse, berated any conservative as being an ‘Obama voter’ who spoke out against the liberal candidate, and said to vote for evil, err, the lessor of two evils, to ‘get Obama out.’ And we tried to convince ourselves that Romney's bizarre pick which might calm a few fiscal hawks who'd probably end up voting for Romney anyway was ‘a game changer’ that would put Wisconsin in as a swing state.

And then we watched a billion dollars go down the drain. Admittedly, this is only 6 hours of debt from the Obama administration, and only counts the money spent by the campaigns, not the hundreds of millions spent by taxpayers to support Obama’s parties.

All to see a great contest of a liberal against a liberal. But it made for some surreal moments.. ‘I'm against Romney because he hates gays.’ ‘Romney's going to destroy ObamaCare!’ Or the real whopper, ‘Romney's going to nominate conservative Supreme Court justices!’

Little enthusiasm from conservatives, not a little bit of Mormon factor, and judicious use of class warfare doomed the campaign. Remember kids, only Democrats are allowed to be rich, as they lavish tons of taxpayer money on failed agendas, vs conservatives who pony up their own bucks only to be told that they're cold, heartless, and are the entire problem.

Mission accomplished, Governor Romney. Pocket your 2.4 million dollars from campaign funds and then drain more from the suckers who are going to pay to hear you tell them how America got it wrong.

It was lost over The Affordable Care Act. Once they have it you will never get rid of the program.

He didn’t bring in Wisconsin, but was anyone really expecting it. Had Wisconsin gone Romney surely Florida, Ohio, Virginia, etc. would too, and we wouldn’t need Wisconsin.

What Ryan was meant to do was sooth actual conservatives. We didn’t gave a choice, though. And if unelecting Obama wasn’t enough to bring us out, nothing was.

Face it people — the US is now a third-world country. We had in depth voter fraud which the Republics won’t touch and more of the takers than the makers as a result of AT LEAST 50 years of “progressive” indoctrination so this election doesn’t actually surprise me.

I just wish — through my tears - that THE USA that existed once in the distant past — actually existed now, because I’d be packing my family’s bags to immigrate to that great country.

Unfortunately, there is NO other place and we’re stuck....

I think the same people behind McCain’s campaign must have led Mitt wrong. He didn’t hit back at Obama on so many levels, thinking a positive campaign was going to do the trick. Be the nice guy, blah,blah, blah. That worked so well for McCain as well.

I don’t know what happened in this election, but I have a feeling that it wasn’t an honest one. Not that it matters now. Well, the idiots voted and won - so, let them have the crow to eat when things go worse for this country.

That is the only thing that gives me some consolation. I feel like ice water has been thrown over me. This doesn’t feel right and we can blame this one and that one - I just don’t know what to think. Its unreal!

Only after the primary. We were very anti-Romney back then and those reasons were still valid but you go with what you have.

Ryan wasn’t brought on to Wisconsin, although I am sure they hoped it might put Wisconsin in play. He was brought on to build an economic ideas team. Unfortunately, it didn’t work. He needs to become the face of the house next year..not Boehner.

I agree, in retrospect, he needed to get Rubio. At the time, I wanted Rubio to stay in the senate and be part of the new majority. Now it hardly matters with minority status.

Nothing connects for me in this election. I guess I am stupid for thinking this way.

Everyone now wants to blame the guys at the head of the ticket, Romney/Ryan, when in reality, these two men are good and honorable men who believe in this country. Instead, we should look to our fellow Americans who voted overwhelmingly for Obama and the Democrats.

We officially have become a country of dependent, European, statist leaches.

End of story.
