Paul Ryan: He May Not be Fighting That Fight, But He's Certainly Fighting This One
Ricochet's buddies on the staff of Congressman Paul Ryan know what happened when I put up a Ryan video a couple of days ago: Instead of saying, "Bless you, Paul, for putting together another brilliant GOP budget," the Ricochetoise said, "Curse you, Paul, for refusing to run for president." (Our own Paul Rahe put up a post explaining that the Ricochet code of conduct prevented him from saying quite what he felt.) As I say, our buddies in Ryan's office know all that. They read Ricochet all the time.
Below, the newest Ryan video.
If he keeps at it, Paul Ryan and our buddies on his staff are hoping, then sooner or later we'll all forgive him for declining to run for president--and help him in the campaign he has taken on. Which is--and who among us believes the good Congressman is overstating this?--the campaign to save the country.
Sign me up, Congressman. Whether our nominee is Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum, the day after he gives his acceptance speech he's going to find himself scratch his head, trying to figure out what to do next. And there your budget will be, sitting right there on his desk.
