In the wake of the backroom video of Romney gaffes leaked by Mother Jones, Romney's vice-presidential sidekick rode to his rescue by, essentially, doubling down on the Romney parasite attack.
Representative Paul D. Ryan, held a town-hall-style meeting in New Hampshire, where he defended the ticket’s desire to fight against dependency on the federal government, which he said had become worse during Mr. Obama’s tenure.
“We should be measuring the progress of our social programs by how many people we transition off of them,” he said at the meeting.
"Transition off" seems to be code for "kick off" which is probably just what Ryan was trying to say to his own upper class supporters. That's it, Paul. When you're in a hole, just keep digging.
