Like it or not, as the 2012 presidential race marches on toward November, we’re going to learn a lot about the candidates’ personal lives. They’ll try to hide their blemishes and highlight their strengths.
While there’s a lot to learn about the newest man to the race, Representative Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.), one thing is for sure: he’s not hiding the fact that he’s a hunter. Ryan, 42, has the buck photo above posted on his Facebook page. He posted it during the middle of the Wisconsin gun deer season with a note saying “I hope you and your family are having a happy Thanksgiving.” The news release announcing Ryan as the new republican vice-presidential candidate states that Ryan is an “an avid outdoorsman” and a member of “his local archery association, the Janesville Bowmen.”
