It certainly didn’t take long for Ryan Lizza’s New Yorker article panning Paul Ryan to hit the screen – only about an hour following the announcement, in fact. Why, one might almost suspect that the attack piece was pre-written; salted away in an archive along with others criticizing any potential veep pick, ready to be posted at a moment’s notice. Of course, they’d never do any such thing, so we’re left to assume that Lizza’s able to combine lightning-fast “analysis” with blistering typing speeds. Or not. The pre-composed scenario seems much more likely.
Unsurprisingly, the Leftist writer pounces upon something that bothered the Left not in the slightest during the last election, but is now of critical importance:
Ryan has no significant private-sector experience. Besides summer jobs working at McDonald’s or at his family’s construction company, or waiting tables as a young Washington staffer, Ryan has none of the business-world experience Romney frequently touts as essential for governing.
We know that Barky was a founding member of the Choom Gang, but there’s no indication that he ever worked a summer job, waited tables, or has any construction experience. Barky very apparently has de-struction experience, but that’s about it. Certainly, he’s never done anything so menial as waiting tables; to carry that off successfully would require that he carefully conceal his innate contempt for those he would serve, but he’s demonstrated time and again a complete inability to maintain the mask.
With an arsenal of pre-composed hit pieces just waiting to be posted, and with Soros-funded “Media Natters” issuing a 289-page “opposition research” document on Ryan (again, within minutes of the Romney announcement), one can scarcely be surprised by the detection of a whiff of desperation emanating from the Left. The best that they have to offer are campaign ads claiming that Mittens murdered Jon Benet Ramsey, gave another woman cancer, and upset the “Palestinians”.
Now they have another target, and their immediate assault involves the fact that Paul Ryan has more private-sector experience than their darling Dear Leader has ever domonstrated. That’s the best they can come up with? They truly believe that they can carry off an attack manufactured from the “limited private-sector experience” line when their boys have none? That’s the best they’ve got? Really?
You’ve got to give the Left credit; they never give up, no matter how stupid they look or sound: what didn’t matter then is critically important today, and if you don’t buy that, they’ll find some other fakery to try to peddle.
One thing is certain: many look forward to Ryan/Biden debates; they should be a big effing deal. It’ll be interesting to see how many (if any) debates they hold before the Barky campaign decides to re-muzzle Joltin’ Joe.
