Paul Ryan Republican National Convention Speech: V.P. Candidate Leads Assault on Obama

by at . Comments

Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan accepted his party's nomination last night with a blistering indictment of President Obama's policies.

The 42-year-old Wisconsin Congressman used the Republican National Convention stage as a way to introduce his family (wife Janna Ryan and kids) and vision.

Ryan ripped Obamacare, the president's prized legislative accomplishment, claiming it was passed "at the expense of the elderly" and an economic boondoggle.

He also made an enthusiastic appeal to young voters, attempting to tie the Obama administration's policies to high unemployment among college graduates.

Ryan conjured up the image of 20-somethings in their childhood bedrooms "staring up at fading Obama posters, wondering when they can move out and get going with life."

He portrayed a country that isn't better off than it was four years earlier, with the future an "adventureless journey" overly reliant on government programs.

Paul Ryan also railed against Barack Obama's stimulus program and said that under his leadership, society moves from crisis to crisis without an end in sight.

"It began with a financial crisis; it ends with a job crisis ... It began with a housing crisis they alone didn't cause; it ends with a housing crisis they didn't correct."

Less uplifting than Chris Christie or Ann Romney the night before, Ryan's pointed RNC speech hoped to set the tone for himself and Mitt Romney this fall.

How do you think he did? Comment and vote below ...

I was riveted! The speech was excellent! Only a silly ideologically-entrenched Liberal Zombie would trash this man's speech.....or Trolls.

Wv peach

Obama/Biden 2012!


U r stupid if u think Obama is good for this country-- he is not worth 2 knobs of goat shit. He is the most worthless, yet dangerous man our govt has ever seen..


@Lynn lol no Romney is going to destroy Medicare..... no Obama is going to destroy Medicare.... Americans: so if its being destroyed do we still have to pay into it???? Lol politicians : well of course u do or we wouldn't have this great talking point every four years.


" mitt show your birth certificate"
" Obama show your tax return" (sarcasm) Do you see both sides are petty, childish, and dumb!!!! I can admit Reagan & Clinton were both outstanding presidents. I can also admit Bush and Obama are terrible!!!! BOTH We needed Ron Paul, because he would have got us in tip top financial shape. But stupid Americans are too busy worried about gay marriage ( which gays can't afford a wedding or house because the economy SUCKS! ) and keeping the bible out of schools. God helps us we are dumb!


Romney-Ryan is the worst thing that can happen to this country! Ryan's lies in his convention speech is just the tip of the iceberg. When does the crook, Romney, plan to produce his tax returns? Condoleeza Rice compared to Hillary Clinton (give me a break). Where did the Republicans get the mixed-bag of people who ae attending their convention? I have never seen the likes in my life, and these people want to run our country? I certainly hope not.


Good speech overall but i thought he reached at times
