More on the Winning Argument

    In USA Today, Instapundit Glenn Reynolds quotes Iowahawk: “Paul Ryan represents Obama’s most horrifying nightmare: Math.”Let me break the math down for you.If Barack Obama gets his way and raises taxes on everyone making $250,000.00 a year or more, the amount of money he brings in will not close his own budget deficit.

    The Argument

    Saturday on Twitter, my buddy Tom Crowe summed up what the two Presidential campaigns are all about: So #2012election comes down to GOP: “We trust you.” vs. Dems: “Trust us.” — Tom Crowe (@TomCrowe) August 11, 2012 This should not be a hard sell.

    Greater Risk. Greater Reward.

    I expected Mitt Romney to pick Bob McDonnell as his running mate. I’ve said repeatedly that my two choices were either Bobby Jindal or Paul Ryan, but I expected Bob McDonnell. I’m delighted I got who I wanted and not who I expected. Paul Ryan is a daring choice.I’ve talked to a lot of Republicans over the weekend and 48 hours after Paul Ryan stepped | Read More »

    These are the words of a man who should be (Vice) President

    Last week Charles Krauthammer wrote a column that I consider one of his best in quite a while, titled “The case against re-election.”  In it, he examined Obama’s failed programs and legislation and the potential campaign strategy for Mitt Romney.  Krauthammer’s most important point focused on how important it is for Mitt Romney – and now Paul Ryan – to campaign against Obama on ideological | Read More »

    The Curse of the Congressman: Some Facts

    The general consensus when it comes to picking Presidential or Vice-Presidential running mates is to steer clear of members of the House. The reason is that they are generally unknown outside their geographic district and have to define themselves on a statewide stage (if running for Senate or Governor) or even on the national stage (if running for President or Vice President).

    Paul Ryan’s prepared remarks.

    [UPDATE] I just got sent this. If you missed the speech, that was a shame: nice balance of positive sentiments, and fully-deserved scorn for this current, quite feckless and incompetent administration.  I’ll put up the video itself when it’s available; the text of it is below the fold, and is from here.  One thing that won’t come through is that Ryan knows how to react | Read More »
