Paul Ryan to Visit Oldsmar This Weekend

The Republican vice presidential nominee plans a visit to Tampa Bay on Saturday.

Republican vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan plans to make a stop in the northern part of Tampa Bay, in Oldsmar, on Saturday, Sept. 15, to rally supporters.

Ryan, the running mate to presidential candidate Mitt Romney, will make his appearance at R.E. Olds Park, 107 Shore Drive West, in Oldsmar. Doors open at 9 a.m. Event begins at 11 a.m.

Titled a "Victory Rally," other Republican team members are expected to be in attendance, though no names have been released at this time.

Those interested in going must reserve a free ticket by visiting www.MittRomney.com/states/florida

Then Go to "Find Events Near You" and RSVP.

Security will be similar to an airport checkpoint, according to Jeff Bechdel, Florida Communications Director for Mitt Romney for President. No signs, sharp objects or umbrellas will be allowed into the event.

"Cameras are allowed," Bechdel said. "But it's best to bring as few items as possible."

If you could ask Paul Ryan a question at Saturday's event, what would it be? Share in the comments below.

Bye Bye Romney September 15, 2012 at 12:30 PM
Veterans ask Ryan why he cut VA benefits in his budget by tens of BILLIONS of dollars. Did he ever serve in the military? Did Romney? Are these the reasons why veterans are made to carry the country on their tired backs after fighting for freedom and democracy??? Ask about their cuts to education, too. It's disgraceful.

Of course, by design, the minions go forth and talk about anything but the economy.
Joseph Robert September 15, 2012 at 03:06 PM
Of course they don't want any signs brought to the event. That's censorship, similar to what is done in Russia today. Heaven forbid if someone brought a "MITT, WHERE ARE YOUR TAX RETURNS?" sign, or a "MITT, YOU HAVE CREATED THOUSANDS OF JOBS, WHILE OBAMA HAS CREATED 4 MILLION JOBS! YOU SUCK!" sign.
Joseph Robert September 15, 2012 at 03:10 PM
Linda Skempris, it is actually Romney-Ryan who are most often following Lenin's "lie" adage. Check the fact checkers if you question that. Oh, that's right. Republicans HATE facts, and don't believe in them.
matt sargent September 15, 2012 at 03:20 PM
JR, you should hold a sign that says " I'm a Dolt". But I'm guessing the sign is not really necessary.
Swiffer Wet Jet September 15, 2012 at 03:28 PM
Oh come on, Matt..... they can't make signs, they're too busy. You know, too busy working at soup kitchens feeding the poor, helping the homeless find housing and all the philanthropic things they claim to do for the disenfranchised while actually they sit on their asses feeling guilty collecting their under funded public pensions and expecting everyone else to pay for their promises.
PaulRevere September 15, 2012 at 04:20 PM
Ryan should ask. Better Off NOW? NO! But, that is NOT the question. It"s 4 years FROM NOW! That is the question. The current Obama policies will: 1) Create $5 per Gal Gasoline. 2) 9% Unemployment. (Go ahead Google "Projected unemployment") 3) GM filing another Bankruptcy. 4) Another USA credit downgrade. (that will cause rise in Interest rates) 5) Credit downgrade will make Home prices decline again--All homes will have lower values in 4 years. 6) Your employer will be paying way more for your Health insurance (Your job is in jeopardy) (employers will need to choose the best employees) 7) Prices of everything you buy will go up. (That's Inflation) 8) Anyone earning more than $75,000 per year will be paying higher taxes because once Obama gets re-elected, HE WILL SAY THAT HE NEEDS MORE PEOPLE TO SUPPORT TAX INCREASES> So People who voted for Obama in 2008 and do not see he is begging to forgive him for not getting us on track , will be falling for all the above traps. He is NOT running on a job well done. He is running as a PARTY CANDIDATE. Obama is campaigning all over again, as if he never had a chance to prove what he has done. Pity those of you who vote "democratic" just because of the party, while risking your future for the last time. America is literally burning in the middle east. That , people is something to ponder. IT's NOT THE---"BRITISH ARE COMING" this time around. Go figure WHAT is coming?!!!! IN 4 YEARS

Is that the sky I see falling. It must be frightening to spend your life scared as a little girl.

Funny that the guys that actually control oil prices are giving millions to Romney (google koch brothers). What do you suppose they want and what will it cost us? Remember GW!

Obama biggest recipient of BP cash http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0510/36783.html
rick barasso September 15, 2012 at 06:10 PM
What a joke. 3,5 over 20 years, to federal Campaigns, including Congress( not just obama's). Is peanuts to the 10's of millions the Koch brothers alone have given to elect Mitt just this year alone! Nice try though some people might not have read the article
Cisco September 15, 2012 at 06:24 PM
The joke is somebody saying something off the top of his head which cannot be supported. Do your research first and come back November 15th.

Amazing how some us feel about our own government, yet nothing changes~ don't we (the people) out number them? Hmmmmmm, what do you think we can do to actually make changes? It's almost like being part of a stranded island survival game and the outcome is controlled by those that are safe on land with food and shelter!!
Justice Forall September 15, 2012 at 07:45 PM
google this, research that... maybe if we did less reading and became more active things would be different. Nothing is going to change if the only words you have to say (type) are in comments and blogs~ take it to the street, speak up and be heard!! All of you have very good points but what good do they do here?
JDMcC September 15, 2012 at 07:58 PM
AWB, may I be the first to convey my humble gratitude for sharing your supremely devout piety with the undeserving, miserable humanoid wretches who populate this cornicipially resourced planet - with thanks above all, of course, to our viciously punitive Father. Yes, the heathen on this board who fail to recognize that our God-given non-renewable resources are not in fact finite but rather can be born again and mad manifestr unto eternity f we just stop thinking critically and channel our self-loathing fears into praying mightily in freakishly ignorant authoritarianism to our most Divine and Sacred Invisible Overlord in the Sky - well, since I apire to love them in infinite kindness and mercy as He does, let me just say I kneel before the wisdom they have acquired in their obediently willful ignorance. LOL!!!

I doubt that! LMAO

There you go again, talking out your "you know what".
PaulRevere September 15, 2012 at 08:22 PM
Isn't it unreal that Blaming Bush is now old stuff> It's Now--Blame Ryan-Romney-- For the next 4 years! Blame Romney for the (Whatever will happen) Just forget about what has happened under Obama. Obama's greatest achievement's to date: 1) Inherited the Greatest Military in the world-----Result OBL gone. 2) Passing the Largest Tax increases in History--In the name of "free" health care. (the fact that every employer will pay it for you) Now that is really Free. Anybody want to buy one suit at regular prices and GET THE SECOND "FREE". Anybody want to pay DOUBLE for your 2014 Health insurance but get the "Pill" Free" 3) Increased our Gasoline prices to over $4 per gallon 4) Replaced all the Bush job losses with new jobs paying 50% of what those individuals were getting. 5) A record 23 million people in the USA still unemployed or underemployed. 6) Increased all Teacher and Educators Pays by over 15% while the average worker in America lost 10% of their family income. (Hint: unions) 7) Created over 1million auto industry jobs by buying them. (cost? $50Bil) (hint: Unions) Now that's what all you non-Romney advocates have to sell. Sell anti-Romney by promoting the worst President in American History. $6 per Gallon Gasoline will be here If you vote for Obama. That's over $100 to fill up your tank. Yep! that is what I call A President who cares for the needy ride to his job. unemployed?-H-mnnn! Beats paying for Gas.
JDMcC September 15, 2012 at 09:08 PM
You are flailing all over the place in your anti-intellectual, willfully ignorant screed. Obviously you lack the acuity to think critically and examine issues from an evidence-based approach, which explains why you are pathetically incapable of forming a considered opinion in the matters upon which you spout your bile-filled rant against the President. It is laughably absurd that you manage to convince yourself that the scary black man is responsible for literally everything in your life that has gone wrong, while ignoring a plethora of variables giving rise to the problems at hand. I recognize, of course, that underachievers tend to emerge from their chosen lifetime of intellectual laziness quite confused and self-loathing, and thus you are impervious to the exhortations of those of us in the evidence-based community who seek to direct your attention to the obvious fallacies in your argument. However, I figured it was worth mentioning that you are sadly ill-equipped to pontificate and prognosticate on anything more complex than who you think will emerge victorious in a race between a tortoise and a hare. There is not a single university educated economist or political scientist who would ever take anything you say seriously, and you would be comically out of your element in any panel discussion attended by experts in any single one of the matters upon which you have chosen to lend your ill-informed opinions. What a joke.

Anti-West: The Lord does not answer prayers for material things. (oil is material) The Lord says there is "marriage between Man-woman" It is you that bashes those who believe that. You must believe in the Lord, for him to hear you. Prayer alone is insufficient. "gay" is your term for a certain persons sexual drive. I grew up treating "Gay" as an Adjective not a noun. To be Happy. It is the re-defining words and meaning of life that The Lord will not answer. He knows his creations and he has reasons for their existence. Liberals are those who look to re-define the world. Our current President calls it "tranformation". You are praying for the oli that is meant for mankind, you are praying for the Bashing that never happened. After all, Going to the moon was one "Giant step for mankind". Such energy consumed by mankind. Was that oil? Maybe , you should just pray for yourself, and The Lord will hear you.
PaulRevere September 15, 2012 at 10:16 PM
Justice has spoken,and few listen. over 91 comments to a "Paul Ryan to visit Oldsmar" Not one comment says "Welcome Mr Ryan" Show some hospitality. Maybe all of you over age 55 would like to know that Ryan is willing to change our whole medicare system because it WILL GO BROKE in 2017. Obama fixed it to go to 2024. RYAN fixes it to go FOREVER --TO THE DAY YOU DIE. Only those under 55 will have some changes. Now what's so difficult to understand.?
Justice Forall September 16, 2012 at 02:11 AM
If words here actually wake people up from a stupor...WAIT, you think YOUR words can change someone from sticking with their OWN thoughts and beliefs??? Someone needs to hire you to be on their side so you can work your magic!!
rick barasso September 16, 2012 at 02:59 AM
PR YOU DO KNOW,NOT 1THING YOU'VE SAID IS TRUE! Does that bother you at all, to have smart people see you're stupid?
PaulRevere September 16, 2012 at 08:21 AM
MEMO to Barasso: Rick: Of course not 1 thing I say is true. All of the things I say are FACTS. Well, some are fudged a tiny bit, because I don't have time for exactness. It's the message that counts. Does that make you happy?. You can un-stupid me , by correcting 1 or all 7 statements I made. Please do that , so I can become Smart like you.
Cisco September 16, 2012 at 11:57 AM
Ignore barassso, same ole stuff every day.
rick barasso September 16, 2012 at 12:40 PM
There is no chance you'll become smart like me. You just keep sounding stupid, and I will appear even smarter
rick barasso September 16, 2012 at 12:40 PM
00 how is my little stalker doing
George Gould September 16, 2012 at 12:50 PM
Dear Jethro (NCI ESS), If "same ole stuff every day" is to be the criterion for ignoring each other, then we may as well stop reading Patch. Every day barasso pumps out left wing bullshit; you pump out right wing bullshit; and I'm just full of pure, grade A, USDA-inspected all-American bullshit.
Gilbert Mike Henry October 04, 2012 at 08:50 PM
Hey, at least we have verifiable records of Ryan and Romney's high school and college activities to pan.
