After passing through security at 8:30 am, one of the first things I noticed was in the air. The banner behind the small plane read: “Ryan: Keep your hands off our Medicare.” Whoever paid the pilot the big bucks to have that plane fly around for three hours with that ignorant message is clueless and wasted someone's money. First. it was directed to the wrong crowd. Oh, wait. It was directed to the gullible viewers of CNN, CBS, NBC, and ABC news where it was indeed shown. Most seniors in The Villages are not gullible enough to believe that message. That message needs to be directed to B. Hussein Obama. He is the one who screwed around with our Medicare.
The crowd was legion and energized. There were at least several thousand, perhaps as many as 10,000. I particularly enjoyed the music, especially the 6 or 7 famous numbers Lee Greenwood performed. He gets better with age.
Better than I expected, Ryan was emotional, captivating, engaging, and gave an inspirational message promoting common sense health care, rebutting Obama’s nonsense and lies. He has no intention of throwing his 78-year-old mom under the bus, who was there by his side.
