Paul Ryan

Funny political cartoon by Chip Bok featuring Paul Ryan's Plan and Brack Obama's thought about the Ryan Plan

Romney’s choice of Ryan as his running mate will make the campaign less negative. That’s because now there’s a candidate I actually like.

Ryan’s a serious person. In February 2010 the president hosted a health care summit. He played the role of professor, addressing his congressional charges by their first names. Of course, it was all Mr. President to them. He seemed pleased with the arrangement. That was until until Ryan schooled him with his detailed criticism of the president’s own plan. The pique on the prez’s face is priceless in this video (It runs 6 minutes but you see The Face early on.)

Obama later took his revenge by inviting Ryan to sit in the front row for a speech about health care and entitlements. There he insulted his guest by suggesting his plan was un-American.

An unbowed Ryan stood up to the bully-in-chief with this response.

Ryan is still unbowed. I think his remarks yesterday in his first speech as a VP candidate, about our rights coming from nature and God, and not Governments, were directed at Obama. And I suspect the president is not 100% bought into the founders’ thinking on that subject. His seems more a philosophy where he bestows rights, waivers, and penalties on winners and losers of his own choosing.

Two views of government stand in clear contrast here. Ryan adds Jack Kemp style seriousness to Romney’s more free floating managerial skills. Ryan, and now Romney, will try to preserve a government of laws built on classical liberal values. Obama didn’t build that, somebody else did. But he does seem to be trying to rebuild something else.

    Love the cartoon. The battle to establish the standard Ryan caricature is ON.

    I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on this a month of so from now.

  3. Marijane Lanwehr says: From the above webpage and article by Ben Shapiro, including Shapiro’s moniker for Obama: the delusional commander-in-chief, I see the potential for a pol toon, here. Your’s is an easy name to remember, so many “spot on” illustrations on the Townhall website. I follow you/look for you on the Townhall site. Keep at ’em! We need your encouragement to help get this country back on track.
