Romney and Ryan: America’s comeback team


Today is the first day in the rebirth of America. With the exception of maybe Senator Marco Rubio, no other candidate for vice president has the ability to satisfy the base, energize the Tea Party, and appeal to Independents quite like Congressman Paul Ryan.

If the Democrats and the left underestimate Paul Ryan, they do so at their own peril.

Before I get into the meat and potatoes of this article, I will heed a warning to Mitt Romney and the Republican Party. If we allow the left to define Paul Ryan through vicious and unscrupulous attacks, then WE do so at our own peril.

If I was running the Romney Campaign the first thing I would do is immediately create multiple ads in which Paul Ryan is speaking to the camera and explaining the upcoming Medicare attacks. I would get out in front of this right now and not wait to respond to the coming attacks. Handicap the left by getting to the voters first. If anyone in the Romney Campaign happens to read this or has contacts within the campaign please get this to them as soon as possible.

Now that Mitt Romney has shown he can be bold; I would take it to the next level. The Romney Campaign should run an introductory ad in all 57 states. Excuse me, 50 states. Sorry, I couldn’t resist that one. The comeback team should introduce themselves to America in a big way. No voiceovers, no fancy music in the background, just the two of them looking at the camera and laying out in specific and clear details the vision they possess for the country. Most pundits or talking heads would ridicule an idea like this. They would say why would the Romney/Ryan ticket be trying to woo voters in the liberal states of Hawaii, Vermont, Oregon, etc?

The reason is because this time it is different. All Americans are suffering regardless of party. When a Democrat, Independent, or Republican loses his job it hurts just the same. More Americans are stuck in poverty than at any other time.

The Obama administration is a cancer. It is eating away at the very fabric of our nation. It is dissolving our rights, our freedoms, and our sovereignty. Unlike a nuclear bomb that would kill us quickly, the Obama Administration is killing us slowly and deliberately. It is a slow and painful death. A death by a thousand little cuts.

When a sitting president in a horrible economic environment is too busy to meet with his jobs council you know that this economic catastrophe was purposely caused. When a sitting president hasn’t even signed a budget in over 3 years you know this is intentional. When a sitting president guts welfare and removes the work requirement you know he is following the Cloward and Piven strategy. His goal is to overload the financial system by getting as many people as possible under the government dole. The more people Obama has eating out of his hand, the more control he has over Americans lives.

History has shown that when the iron fists of government comes down on its people there are typically only two outcomes. The people fight back, remove it, and cut it off at the wrist; or they embrace it, accept it, and hold and kiss it.

We need to cut it off at the wrist.

Today Mitt Romney just told the American people that he is serious about fixing the economy. Not with his words, but with his actions. Paul Ryan is a smart, articulate policy guy. He comes from middle class roots and understands the severity of the problems we face as a nation. He will be able to articulate complex financial issues to the electorate in a very simplistic way. He has a knack for talking to you, not over you. He will be able to out debate not only Joe Biden, but any left leaning pundit that dare tries to outsmart him.

The heartbeat of the nation has always been what the elitist’s on the left and right disdainfully refer to as fly over country. This is exactly where this election will be won or loss. The left and right coasts are mostly comprised of liberal ideology, Hollywood radicals, and politically correct demagoguery.

We have been programmed by this administration to accept mediocrity in the name of global fairness. We have settled for average when we know we are exceptional. We have been told that our businesses were not built by ourselves but rather by our government. We were told the private sector is doing fine even though unemployment is over 8% for a record 43 straight months.

This horrible experiment with hope and change has been an utter failure. We need to return America back to its greatness. As Reagan used to say we are the shining city on the hill. We are the last beacon for freedom. And we never lead from behind. Obama has emboldened our enemies, abandoned our allies, and bowed down to our adversaries. This President makes Jimmy Carter look competent. That is no easy task.

The Romney/Ryan ticket is a winning combination. They will show the American people what real leadership is. They combine the talent, ability, and desire to make America great once again.
