More Catfood, Grandma?
Okay, I have to say I'm a little puzzled by what the Republican Party is doing right now.
Last time I checked, we still hold elections in this country and people vote in their own self-interest.
So...the Republicans don't want anything to do with gays. They've made little progress courting the Hispanic community. They've completely lost the blacks. They're practically advocating rounding up all the Muslims. I'm not sure how
they feel about Indian and Asian-Americans.
And now Paul Ryan thinks they should piss off all the senior citizens?
Okay, he didn't come right out and say that. But anybody who takes the time to read what he's proposing for America in the near future will come to that same conclusion.
It will be fascinating to see if the potential GOP presidential candidates try to separate themselves from his plan.
As far as I can tell, this is a huge gift to Obama and the Democrats.
In White House's view, Paul Ryan's plan a weapon for 2012
ALa says: So, you (and the White House) are basically admitting that Paul Ryan (and the republicans by virtue of association) are breaking out of the political stereotypes and proposing something that would actually help the country instead of just helping their reelection chances? That a politician and his party are willing to take a loss for the betterment of the country they serve -- What a bunch of rat bastards!
