Paul Ryan said urban turnout is to blame for Pres. Obama's win. Anderson Cooper is Keeping Them Honest.
Answer is simple, Romney and Ryan both behaved immaturely.
Mitt Romney LOST the election. Regardless of what color on any county map, the color on the map does not indicate every person in that county was urban. If anyone should be shamed it should be Paul Ryan for making a public statement 'blaming' anything on voters. How about learning that maybe next time the Rep should also include the urban population when making plans for this country. Because believe it or not WE ARE NOT GOING ANYWHERE ANYTIME SOON.
The answer is simple. The reason Romney and Ryan did not win is because more Americans voted for Obama/Bden than voted for them. The results of the election are clear and decisive. Get over it!
If anything and/or anybody, Ryan has to blame himsel and/or his pathetic policies, which are sure to die a premature death at the hands of other policy-makers.
President Obama will make history and will be taking some solid advise from this team. In the end the winners and the loosers are sometimes not who you think they are.
I am the most Oregon-based liberal voter that you could think of. But Anderson, let's be clear. Ryan said "urban." And, it's true, it is the urban population that reelected the President. Ryan did NOT say Black, or label any other racial/ethnic group. I have to call a foul here. It is really unfair of you Anderson, and "beneath" you really to pigeon-hole Representative Ryan in this way.
Ryan should be ashamed of himself. The American people that voted for the President were from ALL races.
Shame on you Anderson Cooper. Surely you have looked at a county-by-county electoral map! No???? "Urban" centers have been blue for DECADES! To accuse Paul Ryan of racism for simply stating a fact is a disgrace!!! Why do you think people are turning off your network? It is because of this type of pure liberal bias.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
