Rush Limbaugh: Paul Ryan is ‘Us’


limbaugh-rushTalk show host Rush Limbaugh jubilantly announced Monday that with the addition of Paul Ryan to the GOP ticket, a true conservative is finally on the ballot.

“We now have somebody on the ticket who’s us,” Limbaugh said of the newly named Republican vice-presidential nomineee. “[Somebody] who can explain all of this, who believes all of this in his heart, in his soul, and he can do it with optimism and a smile on his face.”

The talk show host said Ryan, the wonky chairman of the House Budget Committee, will force a new election narrative centered on policy and ideology. That will generate further scrutiny of President Barack Obama’s record, he said.

“When the vice president starts dismantling the president of the United States and his policies and his ideas and what they have wrought, that’s something they’re going to have to react to,” Limbaugh said. “They’re going to have to come back at some point with some substance and when they do that, they don’t have substance on their side. When they do that, that brings Obama’s record to the fore.”

After unveiling the Ryan pick, Romney himself appeared more energized and on-message at campaign events, Limbaugh said. He praised the presumptive GOP nominee, who struggled in the primaries to win over some of the more conservative elements of the base.

“The pick signals a decision was made somewhere that … we’re going to go head-first, going to take it straight to them and we’re going to win or we’re going to lose [but we are going to] articulate exactly what we believe,” Limbaugh said.

He added later, “The presence of Paul on stage with Romney has elevated Romney … Romney’s a new guy.”

  1. Paul Ryan is us. We are the tonka truck kids who like to play with his toys and give him our obedience and our good thoughtful tonka truck good will. I am going to pray for diligence and Ayn Randianism and hope that tomorrow I can buy more tonka trucks to play with and make this big industrial world spin round and round and round around the edges of the human structure. We are the ones who really need the future to be constructed out of the faith of the frontlets between our pockets and the binding of them on our bank statement. We are the future. The Ayn Randian Paul Ryan conservative thought reducing agenda.

  2. Not so convinced. Mike Huckabee would of been a much better choice! Btw, who will hold Drudge’s feet to the fire after his “report” that Condi Rice & then General Pitraus, were going to be VP?! Drudge comes out a big LOSER in all of this!

  3. Ayn Rand was a notorious atheist hedonist and crusader against every form of religion anywhere, arguing that religion was totally detrimental to society. That she was halachically Jewish makes that even worse! She was every bit as bad as Karl Marx, and has far more influence.

    Paul Ryan has repeatedly expressed his admiration and support for Rand’s philosophy, even making her work required reading for his interns. Recently he was been backtracking on that as he realized that no intelligent religious person could ever support Randian ideology, but it is not clear that that backtracking is anything other than for show.
