Ryan is a fucking fanatic. He actually endorsed Todd Akin`s position about "forcible rape" and "women having a way to shut that whole thing down". Like Saruman, Wormtounge here has to back peddle to the left and ome off as more moderate in hopes to sucker people into thinking they are not radical righties.
With regard to his bullshit on taxes, the only way they can come close to meeting their goals (which they don`t give two shits about after the election) is to eliminate the mortgage interest deduction for homeowners including the middle class. These guys are pathalogical corporate shills who are lying through their teeth to convince the American people they care. Once elected, Romney will return to the vulture capitalist he has always been and Ryan will turn back into the religious fundamentalist nut job he is.
Literally, these two are Saruman and Wormtongue!
