Forum Post: Ryan's China syndrome: What did Sheldon Adelson tell him?

Paul Ryan criticizes President Obama about China shortly after Ryan pays homage to Sheldon Adelson, whose business is under major investigation about allegedly shady dealings with China. Paul Ryan owes the American people full disclosure about whether the closed-door Ryan-Adelson meeting included any discussion about the China investigation. Disclosure is vital, especially with Mitt Romney's history of job exporting while making his fortune, which also contradicts Romney's rhetoric about jobs and China.

And again: Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan should fully disclose a decade of tax returns. When Romney demeans those who call for his tax cover-up to end, he is demeaning his father, George Romney, who believed disclosure is vital.

Paul Ryan has some memory issues. First, according to USA Today, he had to redo his House ethics disclosure and disclose his $1-5 million trust fund and substantial income from it. He had conveniently forgotten to disclose this, until Romney began vetting him, at which point he conveniently remembered it.

Then Ryan forgot his support for Obama stimulus money, which he eloquently denounced after requesting money himself. Ryan had also eloquently denounced the president's support for green business, forgetting that he had also asked for Obama green business funding. Ryan claimed otherwise on television, then claimed he had forgotten when he was caught.

Now Ryan attacks the president about China, after privately fawning over Sheldon Adelson in a closed-door meeting, in which Ryan presumably sought Adelson's money, after presumably forgetting Adelson's business with China and investigations surrounding it.

I call this the Ryan China Syndrome. He opposes Obama stimulus while asking for it. He attacks Obama's green business program while seeking some of it. He calls for higher ethics while forgetting to disclose a huge trust fund. He criticizes the president about China while seeking campaign money from a fellow who, at best, does a healthy business with China himself.

Vice President Biden is Abe Lincoln and Oliver Wendell Holmes compared to this Ryan performance.

I guess the first vice presidential debate should be between Paul Ryan and himself.

How did he vote on the bailouts?

Which one of these is still kind of like the others


American politics is a fucking joke

The fact that Mittens, Ryan, Obama and Biden are the top "choices" is a fucking joke. There is something deeply wrong with a majority of americans in this country.

Sorry to offend people. Well no... not really.

I'm sick of seeing dead people in foreign lands caused by ignorance in American voting.

Enjoyed reading that article. Thanks for providing. So very true and appalling. Figuring how to counter voter apathy should be #1 focus (and exposing R vote fraud schemes). (R)s are obvious criminals with this transparent vote fraud thing. Obama would win easily if enough people voted. Great find! Appreciate it.

Is any of our front running Presidential candidates talking about unsustainability of fractional reserve banking and how to change the system? Is any of the Presidential Candidates talking about the big blindpots of our monetary system built on the foundation of fractional reserve banking? http://wakeupfromyourslumber.blogspot.com/2005/12/origins-of-fractional-reserve-banking.html

Too bad RP can't get in. He's the only one I'm aware of that's openly challenging of the Fed. And I agree, the Fed is a HUGE part of our economic problem. Printing up trillions of dollars and injecting it into the economy, no matter what the fancy word for it (Quantitative Easing), just debases the currency even more. They have had bad policies and have failed to anticipate both the dot com and housing bubble bursts. I see no reason to keep them around. Absorb them into the Federal Government as a new Department of Economics and Finance and have the Federal Government start printing United States Notes instead of current Fed printing up Federal Reserve Notes, since every FRN in existence is a debt instrument that the US has theoretically pledged to pay back to the Fed with interest. Absolutely absured and ridiculous!!! No wonder our national debt is so huge and will never be paid off!!!
