When all else fails, call Obama a fuzzy foreigner, and remind racist Americans that he’s not white.
It says a lot that the Republicans are still trotting out this garbage, even in the final days of the 2012 campaign. While some Republicans are looking to the future, and at least trying to work together, the Tea Party extremist wing is much more interested in the crazy attacks that will cost them the 2012 election.
The GOP vice presidential nominee said in the “critical battleground states” it will make a “big difference” if people “are worried about…whether or not we’re going to go down the path the president has put us on.”
“It’s a dangerous path,” Ryan said on his opening remarks on the call, which has been rescheduled at least once. “It’s a path that grows government, restricts freedom and liberty, and compromises those values, those Judeo-Christian, Western civilization values that made us such a great an exceptional nation in the first place.”
Ryan talks about his Catholic faith frequently on the trail, but this evening he went into more detail when a caller from Florida asked him how his faith has given him and his family courage throughout the campaign. Ryan said it “sustains us on a daily basis” and “we pray throughout the day,” noting he keeps a rosary in his pocket.
Fortunately, Ryan can take his creepy little values back to Wisconsin on Wednesday.
What’s mildly amusing about his religious spin is that his sacred rosary beads pre-date Catholicism, and were probably used by first by Hindus. Some have even suggested that the rosary used by Catholics may have links to Muslim prayer beads.
But hey, why let the lessons of history spoil a good racist rant.
