Paul Ryan Hannity Budget Deal 12-11-2013

I should have been more all over the budget deal reached between Paul Ryan and What’s-Her-Name-From-Way-Over-There.

I’ve been trying to understand both the details and the big picture. One thing I have noticed is that the mainstream media is loving it, REPUBLICAN SCHOOLYARD FIGHT! (Today’s ALL CAPS courtesy of Jim Geraghty.)

Paul Ryan Patty Murray announce budget deal 12-10-2013

I just watched the press statements from Paul Ryan and Patty Murray.

The details are being described all around as “modest” and a time out. The key is that nothing much was accomplished as to the overall budget trajectory. There also was “sequester relief,” meaning that one of the only...

The amnesty charade which has taken place in the Senate with the visible advocacy of several Republican Senators — Rubio, McCain, Graham, Corker, Hoeven — and the assistance of 10 other Republican Senators who voted for cloture is just about the last straw.

I’m not going to rehash all the arguments as...

Paul Ryan Disappearing?

Last week Politico assigned one of its senior political reporters, Jonathan Martin, to pen Paul Ryan’s disappearing act.

After acknowledging that Ryan might actually be interested in doing his job, Martin brings one source after another to show that Ryan is damaging his electoral chances in 2016.

It’s the fight the media is waiting and hoping for.

What better sport than to start an intra-party Republican presidential nomination fight almost 4 years before the next presidential election and 3 years before the primaries.

But it’s inevitable, so if not now, when to start the discussion?

Assessment — Not sure how to rate this. I wonder how Biden’s constant laughing, smirks, and bombastic language (“bunch of malarkey”) played with the viewers.

Biden also talked over Ryan constantly, and the moderator often cut short Ryan’s answers. Ryan also didn’t get a chance to respond to many of...

This is just an open thread for people to make their feelings known.  I’m not going to “live blog” it.

But I may jump in with some thoughts as it goes along.

And at the end, there will be an assessment.

So have at it.

Paul Ryan is expected to do well in the VP debate, essentially the reverse of what was expected for the presidential debate where Obama was favored going in.

The expectations are high, I think too high:

If you have been following the internets, you can see an anaphylactic reaction among supposed “fact checkers” over Paul Ryan’s brilliantly effective speech last night.

The section about the closing of a GM plant in Janesville during the Obama administration has been a particular area of attention (emphasis mine):

Breathe a sigh of relief, the left is back to sifting for ways to attack Paul Ryan.

It seems like they may have hit the bottom of the bucket, no doubt worried after the oppo (“cure for insomnia“) file that was released revealed how little they have against the congressman from Wisconsin....

I attended the Paul Ryan/Mitt Romney rally in Waukesha, WI, this past Sunday evening, where the crowd of nearly 10,000 mirrored other huge turnouts around the country.

There was a group of about 15 protesters, organized by SEIU, Obama for America, and MoveOn.org, lining the entrance to the rally, captured best in...
