What’s wrong with this picture?
As Jim Sensenbrenner clearly states in the title, a Romney/Ryan administration “will cause pain.” The word “controversial” is another one of those dog whistle terms interchangeable with “courage,” meaning no matter how much the public complains, our father figure leaders will dole out a little tough love. So much for a government by and FOR the people. Here's the exact language:
"A Romney administration will change business as usual. This administration will be controversial. It will cause pain" to restore the economy.
A few tidbits from the media:
Peter Hamby-CNN: Paul Ryan to Milwaukee Magazine in 2005: “I have a sister-in-law who’s African American. My college sweetheart was black."
A new USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds, with more of the public giving him lower marks than high ones. Ryan, a Wisconsin congressman, is seen as only a "fair" or "poor" choice by 42% of Americans vs. 39% who think he is an "excellent" or "pretty good" vice presidential choice.
For a guy from Janesville, the Ryan homecoming in Republican stronghold Waukesha says a lot about his recent bouts with protesters in that blue collar farm community.
"It's good to be home," Ryan said in a speech. Romney appeared to draw new energy from his new running mate. He easily brushed aside a heckler near the stage, telling him, "You ought to find yourself a different place to be disruptive because here we believe in listening to people with dignity and respect."
That’s right, protesters are not allowed to be rude under the Republican Authority, so get used to it. Oh, and that goes for conservative protesters too, but that will never happen, right?
