Another Paul Ryan Dishonest Articulation

For the record: 

Formerly smart-guy Paul Ryan's blaming his lack of articulation for his smear of inner-city men - - "Rep. Paul Ryan said Thursday he was "inarticulate" in his comments on poverty on Bill Bennett's radio show this week" - - is the second time I've seen that phony default come out of his mouth when the poor are in his party's sights.

He did the same thing when excusing Mitt Romney for their campaign-killing "47%" smear:

RENO, Nev. — Mitt Romney's running mate is calling the Republican presidential nominee "obviously inarticulate" when he remarked that nearly half of Americans believe they are victims and entitled to a range of government support.

PR is not stupid, nor is he inarticulate. He said precisely what he meant to say, and exactly what his followers want to hear.

Perhaps Ryan's dog whistle was just out of tune. In my opinion, inarticulate Republican candidates for President are welcome, the more the merrier, as the party seems to have eschewed a big tent for a big clown car.

Ryan is not especially intelligent, yet his career has been based on setting himself apart from others, people who aren't as "brilliant" as he needs to be seen as.
In this case, even the mainstream media questioned his questionable statements. Ryan, being the great House budget PR man that he is, was caught. Suddenly, his ideas were accidentally "inarticulate."
We should question his incoherent line of thinking right along with the policies he promotes.
Ryan's 2014 Budget proposal is just as inarticulate as he is.

yeah, I think Laurette is right. Although I think Ryan is kind of stupid in that he has trouble determining when to use his inside voice and not say SOME things outloud, in this case he said exactly what he wanted for a select portion of his base.

He's just unused to saying it outside of Tea Party environs.

I also agree with Laurette- Pau-lie knew exactly what he was saying, and who he was saying it to. Just like Mittens did. THIS IS WHO THEY ARE.
