A Ryan Reboot
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial

Posted By:Desert Fox, 3/12/2013 8:08:53 PM

The political class seems to be scandalized that Paul Ryan had the cheek Tuesday to propose another reform budget. Doesn´t the House Budget Chairman understand that the 2012 election settled every political question in President Obama´s favor? Er, no. The federal fisc is still a shambles—despite the tax increase on millionaires and billionaires that Mr. Obama said would solve everything and despite the modest sequester spending cuts he says are too painful to abide. Thus Mr. Ryan´s proposal for fiscal 2014 is still an important document, even if it has no chance of becoming law this year, because it

We do not have time to phase in any program at a pace that will please the Demonrats and the "gimme" population. We are rapidly heading for economic collapse, and when it occurs the "free stuff" will abruptly end. So easy to understand, so difficult to explain to the lo fo population of the country.

what is the point of this "plan" if you are not willing to fight for it.

just a pr stunt by the establishment to beg people to vote republican next time so that they will have the power to balance the budget. just like they did from 2000 - 2006.

There is apparently no sunshine in #2´s world.

I like Ryan. With a few reservations, I like his plan. We have to begin somewhere and sometime and here and now will work just fine. I know a lot of our work is going to involve a lot of uphill trekking, but the alternative is to sit at the bottom of the hill and cry. Let´s don´t do that.

Once again, a good and decent Republican, who is trying to solve our fiscal problems, comes up with ideas and we conservatives criticize. Paul Ryan should be praised for the hard work he is doing in the House, but for many conservatives, it´s their way or the highway. Wont be long before someone starts calling Ryan a RINO.

It´s all about marketing. You can have the best mouse-trap in the history of mouse-traps, but if you don´t convince people to but/try it, you´re stuck in the mud with yet another superior idea.

Selling Ryan´s plan to urkel´s voters will be the challenge of the decade, and I´ve already started praying for some kind, any kind of deliverance from this creature and his ilk.

So right, #5. Messaging is a real problem with Republicans. Everyone wants to be a leader and no one wants to follow. Are you listening McCain and Graham? Either everyone gets on board with the Ryan plan or you can kiss this country goodbye. Stand firm with Paul Ryan and no "reaching across the aisle" or secret "gangs of". For once in your arrogant lives, put the country first. Beat Obama at his own game. Take your message straight to the people.

Ryan reminds me of Sarah Palin. She told her daughter -- "when you miss -- RELOAD".....

Like her thinking. Where is she these days? I don´t hear much about her....

DID the MSM manage to shut her up????

I hope not....

Ryan defended his Medicare voucher position with ´we won the senior demographic´. Really forward thinking..put another way-- the base of the GOP is literally going extinct. I hope Ryan is not thinking of running against Hillary; I don´t want my party to go the way of the Whigs.

There must be an ability to clearly differentiate between what is ideal and what is possible. It is a defining virtue of leadership, whether political, military, business whatever. But there is a thin line between the practical and the achievable and surrender of vital interests. Reagan was superbly skilled at that. Ryan is showing beginnings of the same ability. McCain and Graham for example have no clue what this means and Zippy is hoping the entire Republican Party will follow suit.

It sure looks like the Republicans are using a swarm offensive strategy. They are coming at it from all sides. A good way to confuse the press, throw the opposition off balance, and take control of the national conversation. My goodness, what must the media think? I say keep it coming.

The Republicans only control the House. Remember, the democrat party has control of the WH and the Senate.

It´s so discouraging to continually read disparaging and nasty remarks on this site.

Thank you Rep. Paul Ryan.

Saw Ryan on Hannity. Romney´s pick for V.P. was the same ray of hope Palin was in 08.
Rand Paul gave us an opening and smart men like Ryan are going to use it.

I don´t think it´s futile, or cynical or part of a stunt. I think it´s a legitimate use of our advantage right now.
Go for it. Anyone who keeps the debate front and center on smaller government and more freedom deserves our support.

We must pull our heads out of the sand and listen with open eyes and ears to what Ryan has to say. Unlike Obie et al, let´s take the lead at the front and meet this issue head on. We are only fooling ourselves if we believe complaining about the pubbie leadership will solve anything. Don´t play to the left anymore. I think we still got a shot at solving a very serious matter, but only if our folks (who we elected, by the way) can put their political backsides aside and meet it head on same as us folks.

RUSH: From Katie Pavlich at Town Hall.com: "According to new IRS emails obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request from Judicial Watch, former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS Lois Lerner was in contact with the Department of Justice in May 2013 about whether tax exempt groups could be criminally prosecuted for ´lying´ about political activity." So Eric Holder and Lois Lerner not only are liars, they´re in cahoots. Lois Lerner was asking the Department of Justice to criminally prosecute people like Catherine Engelbrecht. This woman, this Lerner, this is a witch. This is a very unhappy --

Climate change is damaging fish brains and

researchers warn

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Washington -- A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn´t know about it or couldn´t get a drone there in time to strike. U.S. officials won´t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States. In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda´s crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld says he has ´no idea´ whether his tax returns and payments are accurate. Rumsfeld made the claims in a letter that was sent to the IRS and shared on Twitter on Tuesday - and says he sends the same letter to the agency every year. He also says he doesn´t even know if earlier tax documents are accurate for him and his wife. ´I have sent in our federal income tax and our gift tax returns for 2013,´ it reads. ´As in prior years, it is important for you to know that I have absolutely no idea

Americans increasingly prefer

WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius stepped down last week after overseeing the law´s

You can tell it´s an election year because so many noncrises are suddenly urgent priorities. Real median household income is still lower than it was in 2007, the smallest share of Americans is working since 1978, and the Russians are marching west, but Democrats are training fire on race, gender and the grievances of identity politics. "We have this congenital disease, which is in midterm elections we don´t vote at the same rates," President Obama said at a Houston fundraiser the other day. He means that the Obama Democrats are now what they call the "coalition of the ascendent," made

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
