Where we agree: the Ryan pick gives us a great chance to focus the campaign on discussion of real policy.

Rep. Kristi Noem: Member Insurance Likely Flip-flopping.

That seems likely,except that only one side has policies.

Ryan's "plan" is just a continuation of the policies he supported during the Bush Administration. There is really nothing new in it. Been there, got the Depression. Ryan has a long history of voting for tax giveaways and corporate cronyism, especially to the Wall Street crowd, paid for by cuts to the middle class. He's an anti-Christian Ayn Rand elitist, so if anything he would push economic policies that further decimate the middle class.


Donald, one of the things that I note is I was not happy with the Bush spending policies. Another thing worth noting is the deficit really took a leap after 2007. During the middle four years of his presidency Bush had a Congress controlled by Republicans. Unfortunately, the Republicans spent like Democrats, which is the reason I am not a Republican today. After 2007, Bush had a Congress controlled by Democrats. In fact, in 2008, the Democrats refused to give Bush a budget and preferred to let it go to the next president. There is plenty of blame to go around, but President Obama was up to his elbows in the causes of what happened. His solutions have done nothing but exasperate the problem. And if you want to talk about cronyism, look no farther than the standard bearer of the Democrat party. I will go with the guy most likely to at least slow down the train wreck and minimize the damage.

Very good post. Made me realize I was totally wrong about this issue. I figure that one learns something new everyday.
