30 Days of Paul Ryan: Day 1


In light of Mitt Romney's choice of Paul Ryan as his running mate, I will posting videos of him for the next thirty days so people can get to know the new Republican vice presidential candidate.  The videos will consist of interviews, debates, discussions and committee meetings with Paul Ryan that illuminate his political views as well as his personality.  In this first video, Paul Ryan meets with President Obama during the 2010 Health Care Summit, where he respectfully but forcefully challenges the efficacy of the President's proposed budget.

There is a definite change in Obama's body language as Paul Ryan's comments go on.

At first he looks like a bobble head. Then he looks like he's planning ways to shut this cracker up for good.

Polls show most people don't know the guy, so my hope is to introduce the man and show why I think he's fantastic public servant.

And yes, Ted, one gets the sense that President Obama doesn't appreciate Mr. Ryan's lack of piety. One of the criticisms I've heard by people who know the President is that he believes he's always the smartest guy in the room. Doesn't seen that way here.
