Lies have short shelf life … Words don’t … Job one for Democrats: Lie your ass off in the interest of convincing seniors that Romney and Ryan are prepared to reduce Medicare benefits for everyone, regardless of age, instead of exempting people aged 55 and over as Ryan has promised.
When that doesn’t work — and thanks to a surprisingly dogged Wolf Blitzer, it doesn’t — shift to plan B by arguing that Romney and Ryan are prepared to reduce Medicare for the grandmas of the future, which could totally be avoided if we just keep reelecting Democrats and have the magical unicorn in Obama’s backyard fart out a few new trillion-dollar bills to keep the program solvent. No mention of the unicorn here by Debbie, alas, but be patient. I think they might be ready to roll him out at the convention. Or is it just magic beans, yu get from the magic beanstalk.
Wasserman-Schultz needs to quit.
You want radical … try this:
I had to laugh when I read this from Senator Kent Conrad carping about Rep. Paul Ryan’s supposedly “radical” policy proposals.
Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) likes his House counterpart, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) — just not his policies.
Conrad told CNBC on Monday that he personally likes Mitt Romney’s vice presidential pick and that he is a “serious person,” before describing his fiscal preferences as “pretty radical.”
“The policies that he would put in place, I think, would be a very serious problem for this country,” he said. “He supported all the policies that brought us to the brink of economic collapse.”.
That from the Senate Budget Committee Chairman who hasn’t passed a budget out of committee since 2009 because his party’s spending agenda is too dare I say radical to be politically convenient.
