The Comeback Team: Romney/Ryan ~ The Path to Prosperity (Updated with Video)

Date posted: August 11, 2012

Mitt Romney just announced his choice for Vice-President — Congressman Paul Ryan (age 42).  

Ryan grew up in Janesville, Wisconsin, and is serving his 7th term in the U. S. House (since 1999).  He is Catholic, pro-family, and pro-sanctity of every life.    

When he was 16, Paul found that his father (a lawyer) had died in his sleep from a heart attack. Saving up his Social Security benefits, Paul was able to go to Miami University in Ohio and in 1992, earned a bachelor’s degree in economics and political science.   

Paul Ryan met Janna Little (from Oklahoma) when she was a tax attorney in Arlington, Virginia.  They married in 2000 and have three young children – Liza, Charlie, and Sam.

Paul Ryan loves to hunt, fish, bow-hunt, listens to music on his iPod, and either sleeps in his Capitol office or at his sister-in-law’s house in Bethesda, Maryland, when Congress is in session.  

Ryan worked for Jack Kemp (who died in 2009); Paul Ryan has stated that Jack Kemp was his mentor and taught him economics.    

Ryan is the Chair of the House Budget Committee and is a Senior Member of the House Ways and Means Committee.  He is said to be the most influential GOP policymaker. 

Ryan is the author of  “The Path to Prosperity” which is a detailed plan to tackle our country’s crushing debt by helping to spur job creation and stop spending money that our government simply does not have.   

Ryan knows that Medicare is to go broke by 2016. His plan guarantees that all seniors 55 and older will see no Medicare changes. However, the Romney/Ryan Plan will save Medicare for those 55 and younger by letting them invest their own money for the future.  

While Paul Ryan was giving his speech this morning, I copied down as best I could some of his statements:  

“There are those in Washington, D. C. who are more worried about not getting elected than they are about the next generation.” 

“The USA is facing debt, doubt, and despair.”

“Our crushing debt is not a new normal and is the result of misguided policies.”  

“Mitt and I stand for economic growth, job creation, and fiscal stability.” 

“If you have a small business, you did build that!”  

“Mitt has launched new businesses, saved Staples, Bright Horizons, and Sports Authority (to name a few) and made the Olympics the pride of our nation.”  

“Mitt has achievement, excellence, and integrity.”

Jana and I have three children Jana (Eliza, Charles, Sam).  We have taught them that if we work hard and play by the rules, we can get ahead. We look with pride on one another’s successes instead of feeling resentment.”

As more people work, they benefit all the people around them.”  

“America is not a place; it is an idea. It is the only country founded on an idea: Our rights come from Nature and God – not from government.” 

“Mitt Romney and I promise equal opportunity, not equal outcomes.”  

“We won’t replace our country’s Founding principles but will reapply them.”  

“We won’t blame others but will take responsibility.”  

“We can turn this country around with real solutions.  America can be delivered from our crises, but it will take leadership and the courage to tell you the people the truth.  Romney is that kind of a leader. We are America’s “Comeback Team.”  


Comments from Donna Garner:  Our Texas Congressman from HD 17 is Bill Flores who is the oldest of six children and grew up in the Panhandle of Texas. At age 10 he had a paper route; and by 13 he was working 12 hours a day, 6 days a week, driving a tractor, building fences, and working cattle. He worked his way through Texas A&M, earned his MBA, and slowly-but-surely built oil and gas companies, met payroll, and created hundreds of jobs for other people.  Bill and Gina have been married for thirty-three years and have used their means to provide countless scholarships to students of all ages.  

I say all of this to give credibility to what Bill Flores told me about Paul Ryan. Bill Flores retired from a successful career in the private sector to go to Congress to help restore America’s future for coming generations.  Bill has been serving on the House Budget Committee with Paul Ryan.  

Bill Flores told me last year that Paul Ryan is the most brilliant economist he has ever known and that there is no one in this country who knows more about America’s budget and economic status than does Paul Ryan.  

We are simply thrilled with Mitt Romney’s choice for VP. 

Just think: Here America is on the cusp of going over the financial cliff because of Obama’s ideologically driven agenda, and we now have the Comeback Team of Romney/Ryan who have the background and expertise to deliver our nation from certain chaos.  

On February 25, 2010, President Obama held a bipartisan meeting at Blair House to discuss health reform legislation. In attendance were Obama, Joe Biden, Kathleen Sebelius, and House and Senate leaders.  Among them was Congressman Paul Ryan.     

This video demonstrates why Paul Ryan is exactly the right person we need as Vice-President!  He understands the realities of ObamaCare and of our fiscal crisis; and best of all, he can explain it so that the average person on the street can understand it.    

Please watch Paul Ryan as he completely shook down Obama and ObamaCare — in 6 minutes!  

Now all that we as patriotic Americans have to do is to do our part to elect the Comeback Team – Romney/Ryan.

Just out from the Rick Santorum Campaign


They Needed A Cap-And-Tax Love Seat For Three –

To Include Mitt Romney

 Verona, PA – Both Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney have stood on the side of radical environmentalists and supported the junk science of global warming – and actually pushed for job-crushing cap-and-tax programs. However only one candidate – Rick Santorum – has consistently stood on the side of the American worker and for growing our economy by opposing the radical environmental lobby.


Hogan Gidley, National Communications Director, said: “Newt Gingrich and Nancy Pelosi should’ve gotten a bigger couch – so Mitt Romney could’ve joined them. While all three support job-killing cap-and-tax, at least Pelosi is honest enough to stand by her position – unlike Gingrich and Romney who are trying to change for an election.

Rick Santorum has never wavered, never backed down from supporting energy exploration, good paying American jobs, and lower energy costs.  We need a conviction conservative in the White House, and Rick Santorum is the only candidate in this race to never fall prey to the environmental fringe.”


A Romney-Signed 2004 Report Stated Massachusetts Was Committed To “Active Participation” To Build A Multi-State Cap And Trade Program.“Massachusetts is committed to active participation in the effort to develop a multi-state cap and trade program covering greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions. At the invitation of NewYork Governor George Pataki, Governor Romney has joined the initiative to reduce regional greenhouse gas emissions through a CO2 cap and trade program, starting with the electrical power sector.” (Gov. Mitt Romney et. al., “Massachusetts Climate Protection Plan,” Spring/04)  

Romney, In July 2003 Letter To Then-Gov. George Pataki (R-NY): “Now Is The Time To Take Action Toward Climate Protection.” “I concur that climate change is beginning to affect our natural resources and that now is the time to take action toward climate protection. … (Shaun Sutner, “Romney Joins Bid To Curb Emissions,” Telegram & Gazette, 8/6/03)  

Romney Believed The Carbon-Trading Pact Was A Potential Model For The Nation – “I Am Convinced It Is Good For Business.” “As governor of Massachusetts, Romney supported a carbon-trading pact among Northeastern states that, like his health care bill, served as a potential model for a national version. Romney even said of the plan, ‘I am convinced it is good for business.'” (Andrew Schenkel, “Mitt Romney’s Environmental Record,” www.forbes.com, 6/3/11)


Newt Gingrich actually supported a ban on offshore oil and gas drilling all four years he served as Speaker before being thrown out by conservatives in his own party.  Speaker Gingrich had four years to open up oil and gas production in the Gulf and other parts of the country and did nothing, content to let radical environmentalists dictate our nation’s energy future.   

Gingrich also co-sponsored legislation which stated that climate change was happening “at an unprecedented rate by pollutants resulting from human activities”, that “global warming will accelerate the present sea level rise”, and that “global warming imperils human health and well-being” and “will jeopardize prospects for sustainable development.”  The goals of the bill were to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere by at least 20% from 1988 levels by the year 2000, establish an International Global Agreement on the Atmosphere by 1992, and require the EPA and Energy Department to report within two years whether to pursue even higher levels of carbon dioxide emissions reductionsafter 2000. (H.R. 1078, “Global Warming Prevention Act of 1989)

It was well publicized that Gingrich sat on the couch with then-Speaker Pelosi in 2008 and demanded “action from our leaders”, saying “Our country must take action to address climate change.”  What is less known is that the web site Gingrich asks people to visit on the video directs visitors to TheClimate Reality Project which is founded and chaired by Al Gore.  The site asks supporters to “Join our project to reveal the complete truth about the climate crisis“, and says the organization is guided by one simple truth: “The climate crisis is real and we know how to solve it.” (www.wecansolveit.orgwww.climaterealityproject.org)
