  • The Unbearable Lightness of Being a ‘GOP Pro’

    I’m reassured—indeed, encouraged—indeed, buoyed!—by this morning's Politico article, "GOP pros fret over Paul Ryan." "GOP pros" are the stupidest part of "the stupid party." For one thing, they're not very professional—why are they using the press to take shots at the Ryan pick in the first place? For another, they're cowardly—“nearly all the Republican professionals interviewed for this story said they would share their unfiltered views only 'on background' rules of attribution." Most of all, they're a terrific contrarian indicator. When "GOP pros" are most full of fear and apprehension about Republican prospects—for example, Reagan in 1980, Gingrich in 1994,...

    TAMPA — In a showcase role on his party's biggest stage, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio will introduce Mitt Romney for his speech to accept the nomination for president on the last night of the Republican National Convention. It is an introduction aimed at giving Romney a boost from a rising star in a must-win state, but it will almost certainly further enhance Rubio's standing, too. ....The GOP expects the audience to be huge. Four years ago, Sen. John McCain's acceptance speech drew 38.9 million viewers nationwide, a figure that approaches the viewership of the opening ceremonies at the London Olympics...
  • Romney, GOP [Palin] bash California

    California is the Golden State, home to surfing, Hollywood and Silicon Valley, but it appears likely to become something else entirely for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his running mate, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan: a political punching bag. Romney took a shot at California last week when he told an Iowa crowd that he likened the nation's most populous state - and the world's eighth largest economy - to Greece, the international symbol of fiscal irresponsibility. "Entrepreneurs and business people around the world and here at home think that at some point America is going to become like Greece...
  • Repeal of ObamaCare Key to Ryan Budget Plan (Flashback 2011)

    08/11/2012 8:55:56 AM PDT · by mnehring · 3 replies
    snip ...On Tuesday, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., released a budget blueprint that tackles the three big health care challenges facing the federal budget -- ObamaCare, Medicare and Medicaid - with a strategy of repeal, vouchers and block grants. Done properly, those steps would simultaneously improve health care and help balance the budget within a decade. As it should, Ryan's budget would repeal ObamaCare. With a national debt roughly three-fourths the size of the entire economy, we simply cannot afford that law's two new entitlement programs or its trillion-dollar price tag. Repeal would also relieve states of the...

    .......[Paul] Ryan has spent much of the past year describing the election in similar terms—not simply as a referendum on Barack Obama’s presidency, but a choice between two competing, and very different, American futures. And Ryan has said he thought Mitt Romney shared that view. Here's how Ryan put it in an interview with THE WEEKLY STANDARD on May 3: “It’s very clear from his [Romney's] last three or four speeches – and he’s very involved in writing these, setting this message – that he wants to bring this to a choice. Not just a referendum on Obama’s bad...
