  •  Paul Ryan not only lost Janesville but his own (7+ / 0-)

    neighborhood. Awkwaaarrd!

    A struggling blue-collar manufacturing town of 63,575, Janesville lies on the eastern edge of Rock County, Wis., and unofficial election tabulations from the county clerk there show that only 37% of Ryan’s hometown neighbors voted for him and his running mate. Meanwhile, Obama and Vice President Joe Biden got 62% of the Janesville vote.

    The results were even slightly worse for Ryan from his own polling place at the Hedberg Public Library. Out of 1,428 votes cast there, 65% went for Obama-Biden and just 34% for Romney-Ryan.

    He only won his congressional seat because the Republican gerrymander carved a friendly chunk of  Republican Waukesha County voters out of safe Republican Jim Sensenbrenner's district into Ryan's CD-01.

    That is Paul Ryan's "mandate".

    Words have meaning. Our words will reflect what is in our souls.
