Ryan’s Hope

For those of you who wholeheartedly supported the Romney/Ryan ticket, particularly when the future conservative superstar Paul Ryan was added, you may be feeling disappointed in Ryan’s latest fiscal compromising on the budget. Then there’s the immigration compromise, but that’s for another day.

We are the Truth Watch so let me help understand Ryan’s seemingly inexplicable slide to the middle; it was totally expected. I can tell you the exact day I knew this about Ryan and thusly he lost my support. It was during the election when Ryan said he was comfortable with Romney’s stance on abortion, which differed from Ryan. In other words, he was willing to compromise his position on abortion because Romney’s was “a vast improvement to the status quo.”

Here’s where the lack of my surprise of Ryan’s shifting his conservative positions on fiscal and national security did not surprise me.

Any person, who can compromise on the issue of life, and more specifically baby murder, will have no problem compromising on the budget or illegal aliens. The Bible clearly explains this sequence of selling-out: “he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways” (James 1:8)

My buddy Steve Deace clearly explains the problem. Elected officials such as Paul Ryan are people of positions and not convictions. The former will compromise even on core values whereas the latter will stand rock-solid against such compromise.

I pray one day Americans will finally come to understand this phenomenon.

Team Obama in the panic mode

Oh yes, Team Obama is in the full panic mode. Check this email I just got from them:

Obama - Biden
David --

Today, just 72 hours after joining the GOP ticket, Paul Ryan is making a pilgrimage to the Sands' Venetian casino in Las Vegas to kiss the ring of Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire casino magnate who's already donated more than $35 million to Republican groups in this election.

That's the same Sheldon Adelson who gave $15 million to help Newt Gingrich against Mitt Romney in the primary, and said he may give $100 million -- basically, whatever it costs -- to defeat Barack Obama.

We're starting to get a glimpse of how Romney plans to cash in on his vice presidential pick. Before Ryan's even been fully introduced to the American people, he's attending a private fundraiser in Vegas with the top super PAC donor.

We're doing this differently, with ordinary people chipping in whatever they can afford -- but it's going to take a lot more of us to match them. Will you donate $3 or more today?
