Paul Ryan Most Extreme VP Choice in History

Mitt Romney's VP pick of Raul Ryan is the most extreme pick in the history of the United States. His debt reduction plan takes money away for the poor and gives it to the rich. He's also against climate change, not surprisingly since the Chock Brothers have given them hundreds of thousands of dollars to run their smear campaign.

This Ryan idiot is also deeply conservative. In fact is just as conservative as mentally-retard Michelle Bachmann.

DW-Nominate verifies this fact.


Various statistical measures of Mr. Ryan peg him as being quite conservative. Based on his Congressional voting record, for instance, the statistical system DW-Nominate evaluates him as being roughly as conservative as Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota.

By this measure, in fact, which rates members of the House and Senate throughout different time periods on a common ideology scale, Mr. Ryan is the most conservative Republican member of Congress to be picked for the vice-presidential slot since at least 1900. He is also more conservative than any Democratic nominee was liberal, meaning that he is the furthest from the center. (The statistic does not provide scores for governors and other vice-presidential nominees who never served in Congress.)
