I’ve written for Politico a piece that’s running this morning about Paul Ryan titled, “The King of the Reagan Babies.”
My point? That Ryan is the best of the young conservative leaders who came of age during Reagan’s presidency and have inherited at least some of their political character from him.
From the piece:
Obama’s spin doctors are salivating at the chance to dissect Ryan’s conservative record and politically disembowel him with it.
But they don’t understand that Ryan’s conservatism is not going to hurt him anymore than Ronald Reagan’s did in 1980. Bearing, like Reagan, a specific plan of action for difficult times, Ryan may be just the man to ride his conservatism straight into the West Wing.
Because Ryan is the king of the Reagan babies. The one that most resembles dad.
I think the Beltway types, including many in the GOP, who think Ryan’s positions on Medicare and other issues are going to hurt the ticket are wrong. They don’t get that people are ready for tough answers to frightening questions about the debt this country is accumulating and its growing reliance on government.
Here’s a link to the article. You know, in case you missed the first one I provided. I hope you have a chance to check it out.
