On Why President Obama Has The Lead in Polls:

David Brody: Why do you think Obama is polling, at least at this point among registered voters and likely voters a little bit ahead of you guys? Why do you think with everything that has gone on in this administration, things that you’ve pointed out and quite frankly Independents and Democrats are frustrated, too. Why do you think he’s still leading at the polls at this point?

Paul Ryan: Well, two things. We’re taking on an incumbent president. We’re the challengers. He’s the incumbent. He has all the benefits of incumbency, of the bully pulpit. Number two: He just spent the last three or four months trashing Mitt Romney. What he’s trying to do is make Mitt Romney an unacceptable alternative because he has no record to run on. That can work for a while.

Because President Obama has no record to run on, because ‘Hope and Change’ is now basically “Attack and Blame’, he’s running a campaign based on envy, anxiety, fear and frustration and that works to a degree, especially when he’s pumping hundreds of millions of dollars through that kind of a campaign and we’re still effectively tied.

So I actually like where we are right now because, in the final analysis, when people see the big solutions, the big ideas that we’re offering the country, a very clear choice of two futures: Do you want the opportunity society with the safety net, the prosperity society that reclaims our founding principles, or do you want Barack Obama’s welfare state with a debt crisis? More of the same. I don’t think people are going to vote for that.

When I am not sure and I have no alternative I run here and there seeking all I can. But in my life I have not succeeded if I get even. It is the venom to get even and evil too I thank you Firozali A.Mulla DBA

I'm glad to see that Mr. Ryan knows what the
President is up to with the Fear and Anxiety.
He's using those tactics to keep his 47% in
line. I also think Mitt Romney make another
ad about this and screaming about it as loud
as he can to get the message out!
The Envy comes from his Socialist background.
He wants to "spread the wealth around" with
other peoples' money; not his!
His Envy of Mr. Romney will get the best of
him someday; that's why he's so worried about
how much the Governor has paid in taxes.
