Does Paul Ryan's Black Ex-Girlfriend Matter? Does it change your view of him? Does it make him more votable (is that a word?) ?

This is an interesting article. 

TITLE OF ARTICLE: Does Paul Ryan's Black Ex-Girlfriend Matter?


**Read the article.  The title is Does Paul Ryan's Black Ex-Girlfriend Matter?   I personally do not care if he dated an AA woman.  Some of the most racist people I ever met have been married to an ethinic minority. **

  • I am not taking time to read it but will answer your question. Why would it matter? I vote for issues not relationships.

  • your point? He dated a black woman. Who gives a damn.

  • not to me. i dated a AA guy once, so what? the only thing that it shows is that he's probably not racist, which i would hope in today's world none of our elected officials are (too bad thats not true). i dont vote for someone based off their past consensual love interests or the race of their family members. their current policies are what matter.

    and if someone is swayed from voting for Obama/Biden to voting Romney/Ryan just b/c Ryan dated an AA girl in college, then they are stupid.

  • No, it doesn't change my opinion. I like him!

  • It wouldn't change my vote either way.

    Answer by RelaxedMom2-3 at 3:12 PM on Aug. 29, 2012

  • I don't care. He's an idiot and I'm ashamed that he comes from my state

    Answer by butterflyblue19 at 3:20 PM on Aug. 29, 2012

  • What matters to me is that one time in college when he did something naughty with duct tape, chopsticks and a flute. No way I'm voting for him after that.

  • I agree with Dardenella. I vote issues. I don't care who he dated.
