Excerpted from THE BLAZE: Hoping? President Barack Obama’s team has apparently been waiting for a Paul Ryan vice presidential pick.
The president’s campaign wasted no time labeling the Wisconsin congressman as “severely conservative” calling his budget proposal “a sham” and blaming his economics for “crash[ing] our economy.” The attacks came from a website launched while Ryan was giving his speech in Norfolk, Va. accepting the position of Mitt Romney’s running mate. The website houses a full-on coordinated multimedia attack framing the Romney Ryan ticket as The Go Back Team. The site is fully equipped to trash Ryan, Romney and their collective record.
The site features a fully produced pop-up video that claims Ryan-style economics “crashed our economy” along with a list of five facts framing the vice presidential hopeful as a tax-hiking, Medicare-cutting extremist. The peculiar “fifth fact” is worth noting as it uses the language “severely conservative” as a smear and frames Ryan and Romney as regressive on “equal rights.”
