Right wing billionaire’s are throwing a few billion dollars at Mitt’s superpacs and you have no excuse for not knowing why.
They have a long shopping list attached to all the money they are burning through to see him elected and due to the billionaires boys club known as ALEC, they are throwing money to states and house and senate Republicans.

Paul Ryan just insulted America. We want to know their plan, but they think it's beyond our understanding. I promise you this, if Romney Ryan ever get around to talking about their economic plans (never gonna happen), I will be there to hear it. I just think they're stalling.

Well, you know, Ryan doesn't want to "get all wonky" on you!

Here we are a month out from the election, and all we know about the policies of Romney/Ryan ticket is what Obama and Clinton have told us: they will double down on trickle down. Romney/Ryan have confirmed only that much. They are not giving details. They are hoping to delude the low information voters into voting Republican against their own best interests.

Romney/Ryan budget cuts would be cruel and very destructive for years to come, as Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, Obamacare, school lunch programs, and other programs that reflect that we are a humane people are set on a path to destruction, all to allow the wealthy to avoid taxation.

Trickle down? At least they are aware that the leech-like elite are beneath us.

That is the only way trickle down can actually be true. Likewise their "wealth creation" occurs only in their own pockets.

Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney are slipping these days. They keep saying things out loud that they normally only say in private. Republicans DO think Americans are too dumb to follow along if they are being told something important. Paul thinks we will turn the channel if he starts explaining his budget. No Mr. Ryan we are turning the channel and rejecting you and your party because you WON'T explain things to us. We can take it, just lay it on us. I suspect the real reason for all the evasive tactics is, because Ryan knows his budget and Romney's proposals will be unacceptable to the American people.

Well I can guarantee that Citizen Mitt will be asked for specifics on his tax plan Wednesday night. Having no clear answer will further hurt his campaign. Ryan is doing him no favors right now by dodging the questions.

Ryan said we talk about are our specific ideas -- our energy policy, our education policy, our trade policy, our tax reforms, our budget policies that balance the budget and prevent a debt crisis when asked by the reporters when do they talk about those policies Ryan answered " I just did" and added that the problem is that the news media doesn't listen because Obama has found a way to keep them from hearing the message that he and Mitt would give except for the fact that no one would realy believe what they had to say.

Paul Ryan is a liar and a fraud. Policy Wonk? What a joke.

Republican know they don't need to tell the truth or make sense to get 40% of the vote but at point they are going to have to try these tactics to attract some people from the other 60% of the voters.

"When you're offering very specific, bold solutions, confusion can be your enemy's best weapon,"

So, you're offering a tax plan that you say will effect us here in the middle class, but that we're too stupid to understand exactly how it will effect us, so we just need to trust you? Like we're a bunch of cows too stupid to turn from the wind?

Paul, the arrogance of your statement is too obvious for me to try to explain to you; but trust me, it's there. Offer us a good product and we'll recognize it. If you can't explain it, or if you think we'll get confused by it, it's not a good product. I don't care if you are a "Creator" like you think you are, to get my trust you have to give it up in-kind.

Well, obviously, most of us that consider ourselves to be "middle class" are actually peasants. If Romney considers the middle class to be in the $250,000 annual income range, then most of us are either poor or working poor to him.

And Romney's made it painfully clear that we're not important to him. Obviously, he thinks thinks that our income level directly ties in with our collective intelligence. To blatantly lie to Americans and think you'll get away with it is outright insulting.

Mitt has never associated with the poor so he has no idea what poor is. wealth and riches is his game. like his 56.000 dollar car elevator and his 70,000 tax break for horses. LOL

Point of order: Ryan casually referred to Obama as "the ENEMY". This is way out of keeping with standard campaign decorum where the more respectful term of "Opponent" is traditionally used. This is the kind of incendiary tone that fans the flames of hatred and extremism. If you want to be VP, act like a grown-up Mr Ryan and disavow this kind of loaded rhetoric, you are better than this...

Hmmmmm. Let's really look at this. If Ryan considers the President of the United States of America to be, "THE Enemy", who is it that Ryan considers to be his allies?

Sounds a bit treasonous to me.....

When you start discussing something that effects a person's take home pay, they would quite literally be glued to the channel, not changing it to cartoons or some sitcom. Everything this guy says is condescending.

Just in case Romney's speech didn't insult enough people, Ryan has made a special effort to insult Fox viewers. That just about covers the Republican base except for the 1%ers.

Paternalistic putz.. here is a candidate who thinks he knows more than the American electorate and his explanation of the tax plan might bore the voters and it is too detailed and we might ask lots of questions even stating "confusion is the enemy" Really! Apparently transparency is your enemy. The voting public can make our own decisions w/o Pa' Ryan dictating what we the American voting public may or may not understand... this is the reason he is a second tier politician , when the guy running thinks he is the smartest person in the room .. Campaign FAIL

Actually, he didn't say confusion was the enemy. He said confusion could be used by the enemy. Presumably BHO & co aren't his opponents but are the enemy.

This is kind of ridiculous. Before, the GOPers were always squawking about how proposed changes to the tax code were bad for business since this caused "uncertainty" which supposedly was difficult for the "job creators" to deal with. Now, Romney and Ryan are creating "uncertainty" with their refusal to disclose details of their tax reform plan.

Why is this "uncertainty" not an issue for the "job creators" now?
