Paul Ryan, trying to spin the election results to local TV and newspaper reporters in Wisconsin by explaining that Obama won thanks to massive turnout in "urban areas" (read: places where poor people of color live).
The trouble with Ryan's analysis is that, besides being racist, it's just plain wrong.
"Democrats rejected Paul Ryan and his radical plans in key swing parts of our state—not what he might call 'urban areas,' and not because of where they lived but because of what they believed," Wisconsin Democratic Party communications director Graeme Zielinksi points out. "Places like Rhinelander and Tomahawk, Eau Claire and Superior.”
“These theories about 'urban areas' might comfort Paul Ryan as he confronts the embarrassment of losing not just his home state but also his hometown, but the fact is that Democrats won the war of ideas," Zielinski adds
