Who’s really in charge here?
Last year, Vice President Dick Cheney said THIS about Paul Ryan:
“I worship the ground the Paul Ryan walks on. I hope he doesn’t run for president because that would ruin a good man who has a lot of work to do.”
That’s high praise from the man most people think was the real President of the United States between 2000 and 2008.
When you look at how much clout Paul Ryan has gotten over the past few years, particularly as the GOP’s budgetary whiz kid, it makes you wonder who will be the brains of a Romney/Ryan White House. Remember, Ryan was part of the Republican cabal that met on the day of President Obama’s inauguration to make plans for denying President Obama any successes whatsoever, even if it meant voting against their own plans and legislation.
Anne put together this graphic that may more accurately summarize the
Romney-Ryan ticket. Given Romney’s complete unlikability factor among just about everyone, it may be a more accurate depiction of their team than any of us would like to imagine.
