In A Picture: Ryan’s Speech Was Much Ado About Obama

08:07 am; August 30, 2012

For those who like word clouds, here is Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan’s speech Wednesday night at the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa, during which he accepted his party’s vice presidential nomination.

This picture of how often he said something drew our eyes to:

— “Obama.” That would be the president, of course, who Ryan said has failed the American people.

— “Mitt” and “Romney.” The 2012 Republican presidential nominee, who Ryan said has the experience and ideas to fix the nation’s problems.

— “Government.” It needs to be less involved in American’s lives, Ryan said, not more.

— “Years.” He said President Obama has had nearly four years to fix things and hasn’t. Ryan, of course, wants Mitt Romney to have at least four years to try things his way.

— “Mom.” That’s always nice to see.
