Paul Ryan Looks Like Somebody Kicked Him in the Gut When Romney Admits Obama Didn’t Raise Taxes

    The really priceless moment is happening behind Romney, as Paul Ryan realizes what Romney said, and tries his very best to maintain his smile. Ryan’s face transformed into a pained expression, as Romney accidentally let loose with a bit of truth.

    What Romney said was true. In fact, Obama is the biggest tax cutter in U.S. history, “For the past two years, a family of four earning the median income has paid less in federal income taxes than at any time since at least 1955, according to the Tax Policy Center. All federal, state and local taxes combined are a lower percentage of per-capita income than at any time since the 1960s, according to the Tax Foundation. The highest income-tax bracket is its lowest since 1992. At 35 percent, it’s well below the 50 percent mark of much of the 1980s and the 70 percent bracket of the 1970s.”

    Since truth has no place in the Romney campaign, his spokesperson issued a statement tonight that was a piece of inaccurate damage control, “President Obama has raised taxes on millions of middle-class Americans during his first term in office. Governor Romney was clearly communicating about an additional tax increase President Obama is proposing on American small businesses that will jeopardize over 700,000 jobs. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will stop the President’s tax increases, create 12 million new jobs, and turn our economy around.”

    The Romney campaign should have stuck with their candidate’s original remarks, because at least they were true. Obama has actually cut taxes by $3,600 for a family making $50,000. The only person in this race who is looking to raise taxes on the middle class is Mitt Romney. The Romney tax plan calls for taxes to go up for people in the middle and bottom, and down for the folks at the top.

    Paul Ryan’s reaction to Mitt Romney’s accidental admission of the truth was priceless. Ryan has to be wondering what he got himself into here. He was once one of the GOP’s “Young Guns,” but now he is watching his image and his future national prospects go up in smoke as he finds himself trapped in the burning building that is the Romney campaign.

    The look on Ryan’s face has been replicated on millions of conservative faces numerous times when they find themselves confronted by an unexpected truth. Reality isn’t supposed to get through the cognitive dissonance bubble.

    The biggest reality check of all could be waiting for Paul Ryan and his fellow Republicans if Romney doesn’t right his sinking ship before Election Night.

    Because the takeaway from the event in Ohio was that Romney reboot ver 7.0 was another colossal failure.

    The fact that some people will vote for Romney greatly decreases my faith in humanity.

    yourname2000 saidLol. As a Canadian, it amazes me every election: "Really? out of 330 million people, these were the best you could do??" Palin, Kerry, Bush2....there have been some doozies, but Mitt takes the short-bus first prize. icon_biggrin.gif


    the problem with recruiting top tier talent for politics is that pvt sector jobs pay alot better and don't involve all the public scrutiny. hence you only get the extreme personality disorder types who crave attention running for office.

    it's rare to get someone who's actual interest is in serving the country and not themselves. Obama is an anomaly

    Most republicans seem bewildered right now. They are so stuck, not just with Romney, but with the crazy tea baggers and religious nut cases on the far right and the rest of the world wondering if the conservative republican party that was pro-business will ever come back, after GW Bush fucked it up so badly.

    Until then, it will likely not win a major national election, because the majority of Americans do not want big daddy telling them what to do with their bodies or who they can marry and these elderly white men pretending to be sin-free should realize they are quickly becoming the new Whig party.

    the answer to that is :

    not until Karl Rove and his political machine are dead and buried.
