 Paul Ryan: I Didn't Lose Because Of The Issues, I Lost Because Of The 'Urban' Vote | ThinkProgress

In his first interview since losing the election, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) wouldn’t admit that voters rejected his economic vision and instead chalked up President Obama’s victory to a large turnout of the “urban vote.” “I don’t think we lost it on those budget issues, especially on Medicare, we clearly didn’t lose it on those issues,” Ryan to local station WISC-TV. “I think the surprise was some of the turnout, some of the turnout especially in urban areas, which gave President Obama the big margin to win this race.”

But Ryan’s post-election analysis contrasts sharply with his view of the race before Election Day. Throughout the campaign, Ryan — who was selected for the ticket because of his budget plan — insisted that the race presented voters with a “choice” between two different economic paths for the nation and repeatedly tried to sell the merits of his proposal on the stump. Republican lawmakers bragged that should the GOP ticket win, “they can justly claim a mandate” to push through Ryan’s initiatives. Here are just three examples of the former Vice Presidential candidate making the same argument:
– “The president, I’m told, is talking about Medicare today… We want this debate. We need this debate. And we will win this debate.” [8/16/2012]

– “We have a big choice to make. We’re not just picking the next president for a few years. We are picking the pathway for America for a generation.” [8/27/2012]

– “We’re entering what we call the debate and choice phase of this campaign. And we’re going to give the people of this country the right and opportunity to choose a different path.” [10/01/2012]

Indeed, Obama made raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans a centerpiece of his campaign and voters overwhelmingly agreed with his approach. Exit polls showed that 6 in 10voters nationwide say they think taxes should be increased and Ryan’s budget proposal played an important role in Senate races where Democrats picked up seats.

And while seniors backed Romney/Ryan at the same rate as Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) in 2008, a survey commissioned by the AFL-CIO “showed that by 64 to 17 percent, voters want to protect Social Security and Medicare benefits and address the deficit by increasing taxes on the rich, rather than address the deficit by cutting entitlements.”

The urban vote must be pretty big because they lost the popular vote.

In other words, we would have won if we were able to pass those voter suppression laws

That's about as close as we'll get to them saying what they mean. Simply put, the didn't hold much stock in the miniority vote. It's crazy watching these die-hard Republicans cry about the election, but ignore the fact they only played to a certain demographic...

How predictable that the grand wizard is blaming racial demographics. He not blaming himself for not reaching out to that community at all, whatsoever. Nope! It's that demographic's fault for needing to be recognized.

As oblivious and fu*ked up as the GOP is, I think it's just as scary that all you guys are falling head over heels in love with the Democratic party. Like this is a sporting event or something. It's pretty disturbing. The Democrats have A LOT of sh*t wrong too. They just don't seem overtly insane like the Republicans. But check the policies. Check the results. Not a good sign.

Somebody explain to me how Obama receiving approximately 90% of the African-American vote did not swing the election in his favor (especially in Ohio and Florida). Feel free to use democratic-leaning exit polls in your favor, because I really do want to hear what the argument is. Also, I am curious as to why 90% of the African-American population voted for Obama be it racial relativity or actual political issues. PM me if you want.

If you know anything about history, you would know democrats have been getting 90% of the black vote since LBJ. If you don't know why, read a book. The percentage of black vote going to democrats have been consistent. I think the question you're searching for is how did Obama inspire those who don't usually vote to become active

Really??? The Urban vote???? How about you lose the election because the GOP in the end was out of the two the worse when it comes to moving forward with this country. Also, nobody including the old wanted that bullsh*t a.ss Medicare voucher program that he had in mind. Plus... Paul Ryan became a joke after Joe Biden ether his a.ss on the debate.

In the end... it wasn't just the "Urban" vote that put Obama back in office... it was white, hispanic, asians, gays, the old and everyone in between that in the end didn't agree with the vision that the republican party had to offer. Nobody wants to support two douchebags that constantly look down on people because of their economic background... and we sure as hell didn't wanted some prick that believes that no one deserves to be help. That's why he lost and that's why they continue to lose until they get it through their heads that America is ready and will continue to move forward.

It was funny how they laugh at Newt Gingrich because he told them to reach to these groups in order to win and they didn't listen. In the end they were out of touch with America.
