For all the unseriousness displayed in Washington D.C. with respect to reigning-in spending and, more impoortantly, having a plan for dealing with the current unsustainable state of our entitlement programs, there is one person who stands apart.
Bill Whittle on Afterburner discusses Paul Ryan and why it is the Democrats are completely freaked-out by him.
(Video approx. 5-1/2 minutes long. You can skip, thank god, the expletive-laden commercial after just a few seconds. Why is Youtube sponsoring this garbage?)
Ryan: Not old, stupid or dumb, the 3 characterizations with which statists have pegged Republicans/conservatives over the past 30-40 years.
Whittle explains how this is a barometer election for America and that if Romney/Ryan loses, America, like say, much of southern Europe, has not yet faced up to the waste, greed and corruption of our government at the state and local levels.
Adults, not rock-stars nor addled, blithering idiots.
Addendum #1: Hey, did you know Paul Ryan once had a black girlfriend?
Yep, that's the sort of vetting we can expect from today's media.
