If you see Paul Ryan marching in a parade, don’t bother him with your random, petty bullshit, like unemployment — not when he’s having a good time:
“Paul Ryan has never offered anything of value or consequence to the laid-off workers of Janesville … until Labor Day, 2011.
“As he marched with other politicians in the Janesville Labor Day parade, the congressman was confronted by Wisconsin workers who were struggling with high unemployment and bleak prospects. A man was videotaped asking what his representative planned to do to aid Ryan’s unemployed constituents.
““So what should I have to work for to get a job?” the man asked. “Should I have to work the same wages as in China? Should I have to work for $1 an hour?”
“Ryan tried to brush his questioner off. But when the man persisted, saying, “C’mon, we’re all here to have a good time.”
“When he was reminded that it was Labor Day, which would seem to be an appropriate time to discuss unemployment and the condition of workers, Ryan finally offered something: “Would you like some candy?” Ryan asked. “Would you like a Packer-Badger schedule?”“
Reminds me of this year’s Iowa State Fair, when Ryan didn’t want to be bothered with questions about Iowa farmers and crop failure because of the drought, so he responded with the brush off: “Right now I just want to enjoy the fair.”
It’s a mystery when average, working and middle class teapublicans tell themselves that their lives will be so much better if Romney-Ryan win the election. They really need to think that through. Maybe start with: HOW?
