Seniors like Paul Ryan, what’s not to like? “Good luck and kick ass”

Seniors like and trust Paul Ryan.  He’s as lovable as your son or grandson.

It’s the democrats who are ending medicare as we know it.  Whatever obama says, just turn it around to the exact opposite and you will get the true picture.  In other words, what they accuse others of is what they themselves are doing.  Rule of Thumb.

In Warren, Ohio yesterday:

Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan stopped by the Original Hot Dog Shoppe here this afternoon to chat with voters and grab some lunch. The Wisconsin congressman and fitness nut chowed down on two hot dogs with onion, extra kraut and mustard, a side of small chili-cheese fries, and an unsweetened iced tea. The total bill came to $8.78, including a chili-cheese dog Ryan purchased for a reporter celebrating his twenty-seventh birthday.

 “Hey Paul!” yelled an elderly woman while Ryan was placing his order with the cashier. “Good luck! Kick ass!”

The well-wisher, Erma from Howland, Ohio, told me later that she’s not worried that Ryan and Romney would end Medicare. “I don’t believe it,” she said. “Because Obama has a bigger plan to rob Medicare of $617 billion.”

“We better worry about Obamacare before we worry about Ryan,” added Erma, a self-described conservative. Erma wasn’t the only conservative senior citizen at the Original Hot Dog Shoppe to demonstrate that the party faithful have absorbed the Medicare message being pushed by the Romney-Ryan campaign this week.

“Oh, don’t believe none of that stuff,” Eleanor Costantino, a senior citizen from Warren, told me when I asked her if she was worried about Romney-Ryan taking away Medicare. “It’s all nothing but a bunch of lies!”

“He’s going to save Medicare,” chimed in Eleanor’s friend Karen Combs from Cortland, Ohio. “There’s $700 billion under Obamacare coming out of Medicare, and seniors should be more frightened over that.”
