Sad video confirmation: Obama’s speechwriters just phoning it in now
Paul Ryan told ABC yesterday when they asked him about O’s latest smear job that he’s “become accustomed to this kind of rhetoric from the president,” but wait until you see this. He didn’t know the half of it. Look at it this way, though: There are only so many ways to accuse House Republicans of hating sick people and disabled kids. If you’ve got a paragraph on point, why not just copy/paste that sucker in there and check the “Paul Ryan wants to kill grandma” box? Obama himself has obviously stopped paying attention to his own demagoguery or else he would have caught this recycling in draft and demanded a rewrite. The media apparently isn’t paying much attention either because this clip from the RNC oppo team is the first we’ve heard of O’s repetition.
Maybe he’s been giving the same three speeches since 2009 and nobody’s noticed because we’ve all tuned him out. Time to start running the transcripts through one of those draft-comparison software programs. Just from memory, I recall roughly eight thousand separate iterations of “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” Which, as it turns out, you can’t.
Really...how pathetic is it that the so called " leader " of the nation really gives speeches saying we Conservatives want handicapped kids and old people to go it alone, tough luck. The guy should be impeached for stupidity.
Ryan Responds to Obama Criticism, Says President Is ‘More Partisan and Desperate by the Day’
MILWAUKEE — As Wisconsin voters head to the polls today, the state’s most controversial congressman, Rep. Paul Ryan, ripped President Obama’s criticism of his budget proposal and praised Mitt Romney — a man he endorsed last week — for “relishing” the debate over how to solve the nation’s fiscal mess.
Earlier today Obama called Ryan’s budget proposal “thinly veiled social Darwinism,” saying it was “disguised as deficit reduction plans” but “really an attempt to impose a radical vision on our country.” That was a charge denounced by Ryan in a phone interview with ABC News this evening.
“Desperate and demagogic is how I would describe his speech in two words,” Ryan said. “Unfortunately we’ve become accustomed to this kind of rhetoric from the president. I feel like it’s Groundhog Day, except it’s April. He essentially said the same thing last year.
“His speeches are becoming more partisan and desperate by the day and his attempts to divide the nation and to distract people from his own failure to lead — I just don’t think are going to work,” he continued. “I think people are smarter than that.
“The president’s attacks on our budget are as disappointing, as revealing as his attacks on the Supreme Court,” Ryan said. “It seems that he takes anyone questioning his vision of limitless government as a personal affront and he’s lashing out. That’s hardly the kind of leadership we were expecting when he ran for office.”
No not him luvda....I'm not interested in anything he says! I mean generally....I think thats why for a bit Santorum was making a run, because he seemed " real " before some gaffes. I know Reagan had speech writers, they all do..I read a book called " White House Ghosts " about all the speech writers .....but RR also spoke from the heart and connected with people. Romney needs that a lot.
