Is Ryan Cheney with good hair?

    Mighty Momposted 5 years ago

    One issue most Wisconsin journalists raised was that Ryan left Wisconsin at a young age and climbed the political ladder in Washington.
    One local scribe compared him to Dick Cheney in that regard, stating both men rose to the top by focusing on D.C. connections and not in home state political circles

    "The way to understand him is he is Dick Cheney, he is a guy who went to Washington as soon as he could, rooted himself in the establishment, got himself elected as soon as he could and became a major player," said John Nichols, an associate editor at the Capital Times in Madison.

    "He is Dick Cheney with very good hair."

    Agree? Disagree?

      He wants a massive defense budget.  However, I don't know if he is favor of torture and breaking international law.

        Well, they both hunt.
        And I would not want to be anywhere near either one of them, with or without a gun.
        lol

      No, Ryan is not Cheney with good hair. But Obama is Nixon with a better smile.

      I thought that was a really odd comment by a WI reporter.
      It has more to do with both being career politicians in Washington than how nice -- or heartless -- Ryan is.

        Another thing they may have in common is that both seem to be smarter than the president they were supposed to serve

        Is Joe Biden palatable as a VP because he is a life long Washington D.C. politician?

    The good hair comment raises a good point. Would Americans ever elect a bald vp or President? roll
