There are (maybe) reliable reports that Ryan and his staff have taken to calling Romney, "Stench" as in 'stench of death', and Romney advisers are calling Ryan, "Gilligan" as in a 'goofus'. [this maybe just satire, but it sounds credible] Ryan has figured out that the Romney campaign is dead, and has started running the Ryan 2016 campaign. The far right loves him because he gives them specifics with charts and graphs. The numbers on his graphs come in two types, real numbers that he totally misinterprets, and completely made up numbers that justify the suicide pact he wants them to sign. The slide show is a shiny thing designed to keep the crowd from booing him when he says his stupid things, charts make it seem like he isn't responsible for what he's saying, he's just reporting the 'truth'.
Romney is getting all freaked out by being upstaged by Ryan, even stopping the crowd from chanting Ryan's name when he introduced him.
The far-right never admits it's wrong, they like the atmosphere in their bubble. If they get shown up by reality, it's their front man's fault for not being far right enough. Let's look at the past 30 years, not even going back to the infamous Nixon or Ford. Reagan was a failure, but they'll never admit it. Bush I was a failure, but only because he was a traitor by raising taxes. Clinton gave them everything they claim to want, you know, a huge budget surplus, ended welfare and stuff like that, but they hate him. Bush II was a disaster but they pretend he never existed. Obama has been cleaning up the mess and making their lives better, killed Bin Laden, saved GM, but they hate him most of all.
Speaking of GM, Obama now leads Romney among NASCAR fans, as redneck a bunch as you could ask for and proud of it. Why the shift? NASCAR fans are overwhelmingly Chevy owners. They are also in the class of people who really benefit from Obamacare. While your typical NASCAR fan is 'unsophisticated', they aren't stupid. Romney thought he could court NASCAR fans by saying that while he didn't know anything about racing, he is friends with several team owners. If Obama was white, he would lap Romney.
