New Democrat Campaign Message: Grandma, Cliff, Some Assembly Required

Posted on | August 11, 2012 | 41 Comments

Members of the Democrat-Media Complex like Charles Pierce of Esquire and James Fallows of the Atlantic are already registering their disdain of Paul Ryan, and the Democrats are busy e-mailing their massive oppo-research PDF dossier to reporters, so the media attacks on Ryan are pre-scripted dictation from the DNC research department.

This is predictable, and is the best argument for picking a conservative like Ryan: No matter whom Romney had chosen, the Democrats would have demonized the GOP running mate as a Jekyll-and-Hyde combination of Dick Cheney and Martin Bormann.

In that kind of situation, why not go bold?

So we’ll have a few days of “evil heartless Paul Ryan,” then the Democrats will go back to the “clueless rich guy Romney” message and then, if the Romney-Ryan ticket moves ahead of Obama in the polls, they’ll start playing the Mormon card with frenzied desperation.

It’s predictable, and you shouldn’t be surprised.

UPDATE: Democrats hold a monopoly on Civility™!

  • tigerinexile

    The Dems were always going to go after the Ryan plan.

    So it’s right that we should have Ryan on the ticket to defend it.

  • FenelonSpoke

    Well, yes; Quite accurate. What else do Democrats have but that Republicans/conservatives are:

    1. Evil

    2. Stupid

    3. Religious nutjobs

    And in this cycle we get “Out of touch” mega rich person

    Sometimes they do one, sometimes the other or several at the same time. I don’t think they can peg Ryan with being stupid (He isn’t)  but they will sneer him with “working out”. That was one of the first things ABC mentioned about him before he spoke-that he likes to hunt and work out. He’s a boring but evil workout king who hates granny. Yawn!

  • richard mcenroe

    Of course he works out.  If you’re going to throw granny off a cliff you want to get some decent air…

    Look, the Democrats have proven since 2006 that they know nothing about fixing an economy, only looting it.  Their opinion of Ryan means about as much as a Biden fart in an elevator.

  • richard mcenroe

     At least he doesn’t photograph himself inappropriately while working out like Dem gym rats, right?

    uh… right….?

  • Christy Waters

    Can we show Biden being thrown off the cliff to promote the VP debate?

  • FenelonSpoke

    “Of course he works out.  If you’re going to throw granny off a cliff you want to get some decent air…”LOL.Their opinion of Ryan doesn’t mean anything to me. I was just echoing Stacy’s comments about what will be said. “Killing Grandma” may work with folks in Florida.

  • DaveO

    The message is the economy and the meme is “You Didn’t Build That.” Too much time on Ryan by the GOP and conservatives and the electorate will lose focus.

    I don’t foresee Biden debating Ryan any time soon. Does lend strength to Hilary getting the Veep nod, since Ryan can then be attacked for bullying a woman.

    Jim Hoff left a funny grandma message at the Obama-Biden campaign feed.  We all should.  They are all calling Ryan a gift and a great pick.  Shouldn’t we agree with them.  But in a proper funny way?

    I don’t think O would have Hilary on the ticket because she and Bill would overshadow him and make him look even smaller and more inept.

    Creative Minority makes an excellent point:  “Mitt Romney keeps the social conservatives on board and perhaps even enthuses them a bit by selecting about as solid a social conservative as he could possibly have picked and that naturally turns the media discussion to the ECONOMY!He selected a 100% pro-life pro-family veep and all anyone can talk about is the economy. That, my friends, is called WINNING!”

  • Adjoran

    Perhaps inspired by the total dishonesty of the Obama campaign so far, the choice of Ryan declares this to be THE election in modern  American history.  The choice is even starker than between Reagan and Carter.

    Romney-Ryan represents the determination to fix our fiscal mess, reform entitlements, scale back federal government’s reach, and prepare us to return to growth and prosperity.

    Obama-Biden offers more of the same, failure and dependency, going down the primrose path to bankruptcy and destruction of our polity.  They represent the intention to turn our country into a bigger Greece.

    Also, if only a quarter of the Bill and Hillary rumors are true, the Chicago gangsters would know it, so the O’Boy does not want her next in line for the White House.

    Tip  for McCain

    I love Ryan but Romney has an issue with him to clear up, or it might cost him the election.

    Obama must have known that Ryan was getting picked:
