Oh Really? Paul Ryan Admits that the GOP Has Made Some Mistakes
GOP Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan is finally getting the memo that millions of Americans received over a month ago. The candidate has accepted the fact that the Republican run for the White House hasn’t gone quite the way he expected. Some might even say that things started going wrong when they brought him into the mix.
Ryan is trying to overlook the polls showing that he and presidential candidate Mitt Romney are trailing President Obama in several swing states. One area where Ryan admitted that his party slipped up was in a recent recording, when Romney was overheard saying that 47% of all Americans are dependent on the government and don’t really matter. This mistake helps to increase the perception that the Republican Party is the party of the rich and doesn’t care about working class Americans.
“Mitt acknowledges himself that was an inarticulate way of describing how we’re worried that in a stagnant Obama economy more people have become dependent on the government because they have no economic opportunity,” Ryan said. “It was an inarticulate way to describe what we’re trying to do to create prosperity and upward mobility.”
Ryan’s mistakes might be costly to his party. Recent polls show that Obama has a strong lead in several battleground states. Obama is now up by four percentage points among likely voters in Iowa and by nine percentage points in Ohio..
“We’re not losing this race,” Ryan said on Fox News. “The president has done a very good job of distorting the truth.”
The Republicans are getting desperate. One Super Pac just sent out over a million copies of a DVD that argues that President Obama’s mother posed nude and that his father was actually a left-wing radical, not the highly-educated economist from Kenya that we’ve been lead to believe he is. Times are getting tough for the GOP.
