  •  I wish he'd lost in WI too, (4+ / 0-)

    then he'd have a double dose of losing - to deny to himself and the world.

    •  Janesville (3+ / 0-)

      Ryan is from Janesville, Wisconsin....which the Obama-Biden ticket won easily. The VEEP candidate couldn't carry his own hometown, or his very important swing state.

      Ryan knows he lost, he knows it was a beatdown, he knows his ideas were rejected. He also knows that if not for the Scott Walker 2010 gerrymander, he's out of Congress too.

      What he's arguing, that there's no mandate, is spin. He's trying to make chicken salad out of chicken sh*t. It's his last refuge.
