Conservative Twitter users liked what he had to say so much it sparked further Ryan in “Veepstakes” talk.

Pancakes, blueberries and coffee with @RepPaulRyan and @GStephanopoulos while watching #ThisWeek … That's a great Sunday morning.

The Left? Not so much. They fell back on their predictable demonizing of Paul Ryan.

@RepPaulRyan You speak of principles, do you have any? You're a tool of the super-rich!!! #rightwingrobot

Paul Ryan is so evil. He is the LAST person I'd trust with healthcare. Even NUNS think he's the anti-Christ #NunsOnTheBus #thisweek

Was watching @ThisWeekABC waiting for @KeithOlbermann, but had to turn it off while Rep Paul 'Eddie Munster' Ryan was on… Moron. >:-(

To cause continuous demonizing and lame insults like those, Paul Ryan must be doing something right. Kudos, sir!
