Paul Ryan Compares Obama to NFL Replacement Refs in Clumsiest Analogy Ever
In case you've been trapped under something heavy, you already heard about how the replacement referees screwed the Packers on Monday night, when they awarded the Seahawks with a last-second touchdown that never happened.
Well, Paul Ryan was none too happy about it, being a Packers fan and all. He thinks it's time the NFL get the real referees back to work and get rid of these terrible replacement refs. And he said so during a stump speech yesterday.
Ryan also took the opportunity to get topical and decided to say that Obama is exactly like those replacement referees. Because of reasons!
"It reminds me of President Obama and the economy. If you can't get it right, it's time to get out. I half-think that these refs work part-time for the Obama administration and the Budget Office," Ryan said. "They see the national debt clock staring them in the face, they see a debt crisis, and they just ignore and pretend it didn't even happen. They're trying to pick the winners and losers and they don't even do that very well. Look, we have a big choice to make. It's not an ordinary time."
Obama is exactly like the replacement refs because of the debt clock!
While the speech happened in Ohio, we're pointing it out here on The Pulpinator blog because the latest polls show Obama leading in pretty much all the swing states -- including right here in Florida.
And we applaud Ry's desperate attempt at taking the latest hot topic of the day and trying to shoehorn a parallel with the president. Even though the original refs are unionized and currently on strike and people of Ry's ilk don't like strikes or unions and think that strikes are a big no-no and unions are evil and WEBUILTTHIS.
But that didn't stop Ryan from continuing to dig himself an inarticulate hole:
A short time later, the budget guru told supporters that he and Mitt Romney are out campaigning "trying to deserve this victory" and "show you how we're going to deal with it." The principles we will use, the policies we will put in place, and we will not duck this issue," he said."Unlike the Seattle Seahawks last night, we want to deserve this victory. We want to earn this victory, we want a real victory because we want a mandate to fix this mess in Washington before it gets out of our control."
Ryan and Romney have a gameplan! And we will share that gameplan after the game. Also, we want to deserve the victory. To earn it. Unlike those commie Seattle Seahawk bastards who... wait... who do we hate again? Oh yeah, Obama. What a mess! Amerite??
A sad state of affairs not unlike the debacle that has become the NFL referee situation (Boom. Analogy).
Even sadder than that? Mitt Romney trying and failing to start a chant in Ohio.
Yes. Hooray, Ryan. Good. BUT I'M HERE TOO!
