Ryan in Conn. for fundraising visits

DARIEN, Conn. (AP) — Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan is scheduled to make fundraising stops in Connecticut. Democrats, meanwhile, are using the visits to link GOP candidates in the state to the congressman's contentious proposals to overhaul Social Security and Medicare.

Ryan is expected at presidential campaign fundraising events Sunday in West Hartford, Darien and Greenwich.

State Democrats say Republican U.S. Senate candidate Linda McMahon and GOP congressional candidate Andrew Roraback have positions on Social Security and Medicare that are in line with those of Ryan, but are trying to portray themselves as moderates.

The campaigns of McMahon and Roraback deny the Democrats' charges.

Neither McMahon nor Roraback plan to attend the fundraisers with Ryan because of scheduling conflicts.

Yea..thats's really mature. It is so unfortunate that if you ask an Obama supporter why he likes Obama and what Obama has done to benefit this country, MOST cannot give an answer. I guess he is cool and doesn't look like Howdy Doody...so pathetic. Never mind that he has spend more than all combined presidents and we now have 14 trillion in debt, that food stamps and welfare are at an all time high, that he will not get rid of Bernanke whose solution of printing money will cause the collapse of the dollar, never mind that he is taking 700 billion from Medicare to start an entitlement that we clearly can't afford, never mind that unemployment is at 8%, or that he cut social security taxes by 2% when it is going broke. I can go on and on but he is cool so let's re-elect him. Most people shouldn't even be allowed to vote because they just don't have a clue!!!!!!
McMahon and Roraback also don't want to be tied to a ship sinking like it was full of concrete.
Its HOWDY DOODY Time,,,its HOWDY DOODY time,,,Why dont you stay awhile,,for Howdy Doody time.........
