Newscast Media WASHINGTON—The United States Senate on Wednesday approved a
budget measure authored by Paul Ryan which was designed to avert another
government shutdown by 64-36 votes. The same measure was signed in the House of
Representatives last week, and will now be sent to Barack Obama for his signature.
“It is our hope that Republicans, in the House in particular, will see the wisdom in
getting things done that the American people would like to see done — getting things
done that, like the budget agreement, help the economy grow, help the middle class,”
White House spokesperson Jay Carney said.
The plans sets the discretionary spending for the years 2014-2015 at 520.5 billion
dollars for defense and 491.8 billion dollars for non-defense spending.
The deal’s negotiators, House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., and Senate
Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray, D-Wash., said they are hopeful this final
act of bipartisanship will usher in a new era of cooperation in a divided Washington.
Newscast Media WASHINGTON—Congressman Paul Ryan’s budget dubbed “The Path
To Prosperity” has just been passed by the Republican-controlled House of
Representatives, setting the stage for the two-year plan to roll into the Senate next
week for a vote. If it passes the Democrat-controlled Senate, the last phase of
Ryan’s plan will be at the desk of Barack Obama, awaiting the president’s signature to
be place on the bottom line.
The squabbles between Democrats and Republicans cause the 16-day government
shutdown that occurred in October, forcing the brilliant Mathematician, Paul Ryan, to
go to the drawing board and lay out a blueprint on how to run the government for the
next two years. CONTINUE TO FULL STORY>>
Newscast Media WASHINGTON—Former vice presidential candidate Congressman Paul Ryan feels the likelihood of running for president in 2016 is high and now “more realistic”, but will first concentrate on talks to cure the defects in the deficit. Ryan does not plan on running for House speaker, which would clear the way for a White House run.
“I have no plans to be in House elected leadership. If I wanted to be in elected leadership like speaker, I would have run for these jobs years ago. I’ve always believed the better place for me is in policy leadership like being a chairman,” he said.
He also said the experience of being Mitt Romney’s running mate was a positive one.
“I enjoyed the experience. It made it more realistic in my mind. It’s something that I much better understand,” Ryan said in a Sunday morning interview.”
The Romney-Ryan ticket had promised to create 12 million new jobs if elected president.
Newscast Media WASHINGTON, D.C.—With his typical liberal tendencies, Vice President Joe Biden was dismissive and constantly interrupted the man who may eventually replace him—Paul Ryan. From the very beginning of the debate, Biden’s hysterics robbed him of a clear message, while Ryan exhibited confidence and poise as he held his own and answered questions with clarity.
In regard to the Libyan embassy attack, moderator Martha Raddatz at one point asked Ryan, “Governor Romney, and you are talking about this again tonight, talked about the weakness; talked about apologies from the Obama administration. Was that really appropriate right in the middle of the crisis?”
Ryan answered, “On that same day, the Obama administration had the exact same position. Let’s recall that they disavowed their own statement that they had put out earlier in the day in Cairo. So we had the same position, but we will — it’s never too early to speak out for our values…”
As Ryan tried to continue, Joe Biden interrupted and in the crosstalk said, “With all due respect, that’s a bunch of malarkey.” To which Raddazt asked, “And why is that so?”
“Because not a single thing he said is accurate,” Biden answered. He continued to say, “I don’t understand what my friend’s talking about here.”
Even the Pro-Obama CNN released its own internal poll showing that by a margin of 51 percent to 41, its viewers felt Ryan expressed himself better than Biden and that the winner of the debate was Paul Ryan with 48 percent to Biden’s 44 percent. The poll also showed 70 percent thought Biden spent more time attacking Ryan instead of delivering his message
The next debate will be between Obama and Romney on Tuesday October 16, in New York, where the setting will be a little different, in a town hall format that allows audience members to ask the candidates questions directly.

Newscast Media — In less than two years, Obama is likely to face one of these GOP rising stars in a battle for the White House. Ron Paul had a very successful grassroots campaign and raised a lot of money over the Internet, however, I think the media will give him less coverage as they did in 2008, due to his views on the war, the IRS and the Federal Reserve. I have therefore narrowed the field down to the above-listed candidates.
Mitt Romney the former Massachussettes governor has successfully raised money for fellow Republicans through his Free and Strong America PAC. He is an effective fundraiser and also a staunch critic of the Obama administration especially with issues related to the economy.
Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin formed her political action committee, SarahPAC, and eventually resigned from her governorship in July 2009. Virtually every candidate she has endorsed has won his or her election. Sarah Palin told Larry King she hasn’t ruled out the possibility of running in 2012.
Paul Ryan, the Wisconsin Congressman, introduced his “Roadmap to America’s Future” in 2008 and released an updated version in January 2012. An incredibly astute economist, Ryan publically challenged Obama’s Obamacare at the 2010 Health Care Summit and is known for the quote, “Hiding spending doesn’t reduce spending.”
Rick Perry, the current governor of Texas is running for an unprecedented third term because in Texas there are no term limits. Perry has never lost an election and earlier in 2010 enlisted his friend Sarah Palin, who campaigned for him before the primaries. Perry defeated Kay Bailey Hutchinson and Debra Medina, and will
be running against former Houston mayor Bill White in November.
Should George P. Bush decide to run in 2020 he will be virtually unstoppable. His Hispanic background on his mother’s side gives him a huge advantage over any other candidate, Democrat or Republican, because the demographics are shifting and the Hispanic community will be a force to be reckoned with politically, in the coming years. In 2007 he signed up for eight years as an officer in the Navy Reserves, and I suspect “P” as he likes to be called, will run for the Texas
governorship in 2016, and later on for president in 2020.
Josh Mandel is also another GOP hopeful whose star is quietly rising. Mandel won a second term as a State Representative in a heavily Democratic district in Ohio, and has championed lowering taxes for Ohio residents. He served eight years as an Intelligence Specialist in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves, and in 2009 announced his candidacy for Ohio Treasurer of State.
