Certain Republican Presidential nominee Willard "Mitt" Romney has selected Wisconsin congressman (and House Budget Committee chairman) Paul Ryan as his running mate, which the party’s convention in Tampa will surely make official. A Yahoo contributor wrote a story about the reaction to this news by ordinary Republicans. Then people posted comments.
The entire conversation about the presidential race has changed, immediately and distinctly, upon the announcement of Ryan as running mate. This is sharply seen in the comments section to the story.

"Ken" stated a long comment on the story of Republican response to Ryan’s selection as Romney's running mate:
How Obama Is Ignoring You and Bypassing Congress to Radically Transform America -- Obama denied the Keystone Oil Pipeline, used the EPA to close down Coal Mining throughout the country, as well as closing down and denying new drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, etc. all of which will make Power and Fuel prices go UP in the future.
Obama bypassed congressional authority, issuing an executive order to place US coastal waters in the jurisdiction of the UN, and making US coastal states responsible to pay taxes and share revenue with up to 160 foreign nations. Obama placed the UN L.O.S.T. Treaty above the sovereignty of the United States.
Obama bypassed congressional authority, issuing executive order number 13575 to place a large percentage of rural American farmland into the jurisdiction of the UN, and to extend federal control over that portion of our farmlands, driving out the rightful owners with federal regulations. Executive order 13575 agenda 21
Obama bypassed Congress on the DREAM Act, stopping the Fed Gov from deporting illegals and granting them work permits, adding millions to a workforce that already has tens of millions out of work.
Obama bypassed Congress and issued a policy directive that effectively rewrites the welfare reform law of 1996, his change allows the Department of Health and Human Services to waive the work requirement at the heart of welfare reform.
Obama ordered the US Department of Labor secretary Jane Oates to issue "guidance" to government contractors telling them to forget about November 1st warnings to employees about mass layoffs coming due to the automatic budget cuts that take effect in January. The layoff warnings are required under WARN act law, 60 days ahead of a mass layoff, but Obama doesn't want companies to follow the law.
Obama ordered the IRS to ignore fraudulent immigrant claims for refunds they claim for children, who are not even verified to be real, no proof required, it is estimated that this fraud costs tax payers over 6 Billion dollars a year. Yet Obama is more than willing to go after hard working Americans for even MORE taxes.
Obama’s stimulus plan cost more than the race to the moon, the Louisiana Purchase, and the Marshall Plan combined — in real dollars — and it did nothing for the economy. Some of Obama's biggest supporters reaped the rewards of the ARRA stimulus, while the promise that it would ensure unemployment would never go above 8% was proven false, as it never went below 8%.
Everybody in D.C., Obama included, knew the American people didn’t want Obamacare. The polls showed that they hated it. Scott Brown won "Ted Kennedy’s seat" by promising to vote against health care reform. There were angry townhalls, Tea Parties, and tens of millions of phone calls and emails spurred by that legislation.
Obama helped push it through anyway, Obama has time and time again proven he does not care one bit about American's opinions, he will do what he wants to do, not matter what the cost to America.
When Congress Refused to Pass his Cap and Trade (even the overwhelmingly Democrat Congress of 2009-2010 wouldn't pass it), Obama said "Cap and Trade was just one way of skinning the cat; it was not the only way. It was a means, not an end."
Obama is going beyond even maximizing Executive Branch regulatory powers. His established pattern and practice now includes exceeding statutory authority, ignoring court rulings, ignoring the duties of his office, and breaking agreements with Congress.
Obama's policies, driven by ideology and vote-getting, rather than rational analysis of the interests of the USA, do nothing but cause harm to this great nation
All of this consists of a comment posted in response to a story about ordinary Republicans responding to the selection of Paul Ryan as running mate at:

Obama's friends are people like Louis Farrakhan and Hugo Chavez, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn.... George Soros, a multi-billionaire Marxist spent huge sums of money to get Obama elected.
Page 425, line 4-12: The government mandates advance-care planning consultations. Those on Social Security will be required to attend an "end-of-life planning" seminar every five years. (Death counseling...)
Page 272, section 1145. Cancer treatment, hospitals will RATION care according to patient's age.
"Look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something - If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Someone else made that happen." Yeah Obama really said it, and he REALLY meant it.
