Skip to comments.Sour Andrea Mitchell: Paul Ryan as VP Is 'Not a Pick for Women' or 'Suburban Moms'

Minutes after Paul Ryan was introduced as Mitt Romney's vice presidential nominee, Saturday, a sour Andrea Mitchell dismissed the choice: "This is not a pick for suburban moms. This is not a pick for women."
Playing off the GOP congressman's first speech as the presumptive nominee, Mitchell lectured, "I think that you're going to see that they [Team Romney] have decided that this is a base election." The liberal anchor for MSNBC worried that Ryan was "talking about what the base wants to hear." [See video below. MP3 audio here.]
Andrea Mitchell: Paul Ryan Isn't a Pick for Women
She said of his speech: "He talked about rights coming from God and they don't come from government."
A transcript of the August 11 exchange during live coverage is below:
ANDREA MITCHELL: I think that you're going to see that they've decided that this is a base election.
CHRIS HAYES: Yeah.
MITCHELL: This is not a pick for suburban moms. This is not a pick for women. This is a pick for the base.
As a country gal in 2008 I voted for Sarah.
As a suburban woman in 2012 I’m voting for Paul Ryan.
I’m just sick of the LSM!
Vote? Oh, I'm sure she votes many many times in any given election.
F*ck1ng Liberal wh0re.
F*ck1ng Liberal wh0re.
One wonders if this nincompoop even undestands what that means.
Mrs. Greenspan, the childless, never married until she was damned near 70. What could she possibly know what anyone who actually has children could be thinking about?
Zing! Good one!
With no kids of her own, she would know <*s/off>
Wanna bet, Andrea? Paul Ryan is exaclty the kind of guy that appeals to middle class men and women. He is a superior communicator.
TAKE RICH PEOPLE"S MONEY!!! TAKE ALL THEIR MONEY!!! GIVE ME ....GIVE ME SOMEONE"S MONEY!!!
THIS is what DEMOCRATS are all about.
I believe I read on FR recently (looked for the thread but couldn't find it) that Obaama in his second term (if he has one, God forbid) wants to take the US down to 292 warheads.
NO cheers, unfortunately.
We should be going up to 40,000.
Maybe we ought to use a couple. (See: List of islamic cities)
This is what happens when a old crusty femist stands in line all day and just as she is about to get her free dildo the EVIL republicans take it away.
Poorl old goat! Such anger-got to take it out on someone.
Free vibrators-it’s a right.
That skankasaurus. She used to be super ugly with her butt hide face, but she got a lot of skin peels and smoothed out her rough spots, but she’ll still pretty ugly on the inside.
No the chick with the long ears is cute, the other one is fugly
The "right" was taken away, however, by a Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-Independent. Is poor Andrea unable to make distinctions?
Right after the announcement, the network news on the radio was saying that “he doesn’t have any foreign relations knowledge.” Like Obama did when he was elected? LOL
The Dems were hoping someone to the left of Willard. Noam Chomsky I guess. They’re thoroughly disappointed they’re actually going to have to discuss actual issues with someone who knows their business. Biden will look like a deer in the headlights going against Ryan.
