  •  Paul Ryan is crapping his pants (5+ / 0-)

    Because of our awful media (they use the Milwaukee media market), Ryan has been able to present himself as a shiny faced moderate.  When he presented the Path to the Poorhouse budget, his mask slipped and voters got a look at the REAL Paul Ryan.

    He's been re-elected several times because of that shiny veneer and hasn't faced any serious opposition.

    Today, the REAL Ryan, now exposed by national media attention and facing a serious (and great) opponent in Rob Zerban can't even hold an open town hall.  He's got mega bucks and he's certainly got a lot of ads running, but his national exposure keeps on showing him as a RW extremist to any of the locals paying attention.  

    He'll lose in a debate, so he just won't debate even though his flimsy excuses fall apart as soon as they get put out.

    He's hoping that mega bucks and lazy local media along with RW hate radio will save his Congressional seat along with the Republican gerrymandering of his district that his buddies did last year.  

    We'll see.

      whether Ryan's excuse for dodging debates is that "it'd take too long" to spend that much time in his district!
         He simply has more important things to do than to have to bother with running for re-election.
         If that's the case, he shouldn't be doing it. The People of WI-01 deserve better than that.

        Today he's delivering a petition signed by tens of thousands of people demanding Paul Ryan debate Zerban in the district.
