According To Paul Ryan, When Jesus Was Crucified, It Was Barack Obama's Fault

Obama's bad call?
Well, maybe not that specific violation. But when a replacement pro football official made an apparently bad call (I didn't see the game) in a game involving Ryan's beloved Packers, costing them the game... Paul Ryan likened the officiating to Barack Obama. Yes, he really said this:
And you know what, it reminds me of President Obama and the economy. If you can’t get it right, it is time to get out. I half think these refs work part-time for the Obama administration in the Budget Office. They see the national debt clock staring them in the face. They see a debt crisis, and they just ignore and pretend it didn’t even happen. They are trying to pick the winners and losers, and they don’t even do that very well.
Jeebus Cripes on a crutch in a crapheap! The man is obsessed. If the proverbial butterfly in China farted, resulting in our current headlong rush toward global climate change, Ryan would blame Obama for the fart.

There's plenty to criticize about Barack Obama without resorting to this sort of thing. But at least Obama, unlike Ryan, is neither lame-brained nor demented. Voters: do not let Paul Ryan anywhere near the levers of power. Nowhere near, I tell you!

(H/T TBogg.)


  1. The poor level of officiating is the result of the 'job creators' attempting to bust a union by locking out the career officials over a relatively insignificant amount of money for the pension fund of those officials.

    Maybe if Ryan turned the spotlight on the owners, the matter might be resolved, but Ryan would never speak ill of the wealthy.

    The temps who are officiating have the same skill set as the part-timers at WalMart - a pulse, and willing to work for peanuts.

  2. Bryan, if they're going to call it "pro football," everything about it has to be "pro" ... emphatically including the officiating. I've only seen a couple of pro football games, live in the stands, ever, at an uncle's invitation (and expense) in my young childhood, and what I observed about the officiating was this: if the grownups talk about it, it isn't "pro."

    Complaints about baseball umpiring are part of the game, and mean nothing. Complaints about officiating in pro basketball are rare; the proficiency level of the refs seems comparable to that of the players. Pro football... well, they get what they pay for.

    An owner lockout is a stupid move in the best of circumstances. An owner lockout over the cost of genuinely pro refs is too dumb for words. Does a high-end Indian restaurant save costs by firing its chef and using those $2 foil-pack heat-and-eat veggies from an international grocer?

    Ryan is truly a toady. It is difficult for me to fathom how someone can be the way he is toward the wealthy. It's a kind of sickness.
