Romney Taps Diehard Bow Hunter for Running Mate!

A bowhunter could soon be the U.S. Vice President!!!  Spread the word–Mitt Romney’s choice for running mate is an avid, diehard trophy deer hunter!!

“Diehard” is more than a euphemism, in this case it has a double meaning. Unfortunately it’s the deer who literally die hard, thanks to Ryan’s chosen hobby.

According to the, ‘He’s an avid bow hunter who emails from the brush as he waits for deer.’ Number 10 of the US News list of “10 Things You Didn’t Know about Paul Ryan (and, I would add, never hoped to find out) is: #10. Ryan’s hobbies include hunting and fishing. He is a bowhunter and belongs to his hometown’s archery association, the Janesville Bowmen.

“I butcher my own deer, grind the meat, stuff it in casings and then smoke it,” Ryan told Politico.

Here’s Paul Ryan’s Voting Record on the Environment:

  • Voted NO on protecting free-roaming horses and burros. (Jul 2009)
  • Voted NO on environmental education grants for outdoor experiences. (Sep 2008)
  • Voted NO on $9.7B for Amtrak improvements and operation thru 2013. (Jun 2008)
  • Voted NO on increasing AMTRAK funding by adding $214M to $900M. (Jun 2006)
  • Voted NO on barring website promoting Yucca Mountain nuclear waste dump. (May 2006)
  • Voted YES on deauthorizing “critical habitat” for endangered species. (Sep 2005)
  • Voted YES on speeding up approval of forest thinning projects. (Nov 2003)

  1. I am extremely sickened by this, when the only other option is more of Obama and his disastrous effects on the animals by his cattle rancher Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, his funneling a HUGE windfall of money to vivisectors through the NIH, and so on… his being no friend of animals either even if he pays for his Kobe beef and arugula instead of out killing his own “food.” Then there’s the totally unaffordable dictatorial sickness maintenance program, ObamaCare. There’s really no one to vote FOR, only to vote AGAINST the worse of the evils, but first to figure out which is worse. It’s a sad state of affairs for this country. We have only the good people, effective no-nonsense animal activists, to hold onto hope for good changes for the animals…we cannot rely on government or others in power, unfortunately. Again, I am sickened by this news, as if Romney wasn’t bad enough, he’s declined further with this choice…may as well have picked Ted Nugent if he weren’t so obviously insane.

  2. Oh my gosh…does it surprise me? No, not really Jim!
