Why do Democrats Love Ryan?
Why do Wisconsin Democrats love Paul Ryan so much? I'm sure the main stream media will completely look past these facts.
First, if Ryan is an extremist and his proposals are so unpopular, how has he won election seven times in a Democratic district? His lowest share of the vote was 57 percent — in his first race. He routinely wins over two-thirds of the vote. When Obama swept the nation in 2008, he carried Ryan’s district by four points. But at the same time, Ryan won reelection with 65 percent of the vote, meaning that a fifth of Obama voters also voted for him.
Ryan has pointed out to me that no Republican has carried his district for president since Ronald Reagan in 1984. “I have held hundreds of town-hall meetings in my district explaining why we have to take bold reform steps, and I’ve found treating people like adults works,” he told me. “All those ads pushing elderly woman off the cliffs don’t work anymore if you lay out the problem.”

Thread title: Why do Democrats love Ryan?
First post: Why do Wisconsin Democrats love Paul Ryan so much?
Article: Why Democrats should be scared of Paul Ryan
Can't make up your mind?
Wow, I'm shocked that Democrats on this forum completely avoided the facts and dismissed the article. Completely shocked.
The facts are that Democrats in Wisconsin love Ryan and why Romney picked him.
Now the questioned avoided, that I'll repeat, why do so many Democrats love Paul Ryan? If he's a "right-wing extremest" that Liberals make him out to be, why do so so many vote for him?
Tough questions to answer directly, I'm sure. :)

I guess the original title was correct, smart Democrats should be worried. The rest will keep dismissing facts and base all arguments on emotion.
But I'm sure the brainy Joe Biden will do great in the debates. He'll tell everyone that he's middle class. :)
Yes, because every democrat came in and did that in the thirty minutes between your first post and your last post. Talk about needy.

Oh and I know you didn't write the article, but I assume you read it before you made thread, complete with title and comment which were misleading at best.
