Obama Asks "What's Behind The Paul Ryan Pick"

In a mass mail sent out by the president's campaign for reelection he absolutely loses it over Romney picking tea party star Paul Ryan for VP, the title for the piece actually is "What's Behind The Paul Ryan Pick". Let's ignore the fact that Paul Ryan wins handily every time he is on the ballot, or the fact that despite going head to head with the president over budget issues and Obamacare the president himself was forced to admit Ryan's courage, conviction, and sincerity when it came to the issues. Paul Ryan brings a sense of youth, energy and fun to the ticket and he is well spoken to the point I actually feel a little sorry for Joe Biden when it comes to the VP debates.

Read the letter below:

Friend –
Congressman Paul Ryan is the poster boy for the extreme Republican leadership in a Congress whose overall approval rating is 12 percent. His plan to dismantle Medicare is deeply unpopular with the general public, and especially undecided voters.
You might be wondering why the hell Romney picked this guy. But this is a strategic pick that carries real danger for us.
Here’s the calculation: Mitt Romney doesn’t need or expect Paul Ryan to convince even one undecided voter to cast their ballot for him. That’s not what he’s on the ticket for. He’s there to reassure and inspire ultraconservative ideologues and corporate interests that they will have one of their own a heartbeat from the presidency.
That means tens or even hundreds of millions more dollars for the Romney campaign and the array of outside groups supporting him – and if current trends hold, more than 90 percent of that money will be spent on TV ads — lying, distorting and trashing Barack Obama. Those ads will have more impact on undecided voters than anything Paul Ryan himself does or says.
Mitt Romney is convinced that picking Paul Ryan is a great investment for him. And his campaign is already touting the pledges and donations they’ve received as a result, with fundraising events planned for this week.
We’re already being outraised, and we can’t afford to fall further behind. Our records show that you’re still waiting to make your first online donation — now is the time.
Please donate $5 or more today:
More soon.

Look at the conspiracy theory logic in there, Obama might as well be telling his supporters to look out for black helicopters should the Romney ticket win in November, he goes in for fear mongering and outright lies about the trend concerning Romney and negative ads.  If anything the president has been slinging more mud than all of Romneys G.O.P. competitors in the primary did combined. It speaks of desperation and deliberate dishonesty, revealing exactly how worried the president is about his own job security in this election.
