The Trust Fund Baby Ticket

GOP strategist Mary Matalin says that Janna Ryan, Paul’s wife, “lives a real middle class mother life.”

Janna Ryan may be a lovely person and a wonderful mother, but she is not “middle class.”  Middle class people don’t have income-producing trust funds (from oil) worth at least $1million and as much as $5 million.  She comes from a rich and politically prominent Oklahoma family.   They live in a mansion.

Paul Ryan was a rich kid who married another rich kid and now he is running with another couple of rich kids, Ann and Mitt.


Janna Ryan’s Family

The fact that Paul Ryan’s wife, Janna, is the niece of former Oklahoma Sen. David Boren, a Dem, is getting a lot of press.

We should also note that her grandfather, Reuel Little, started a third-party in Oklahoma in the 1960’s to get George Wallace on the ballot for president.  Maybe some white sheets among the dirty linen?
