      the reporter's question wasn't properly deferential, so he flipped out.  The truth is his programs would only increase the economic suffering in the inner city - so she was right to be skeptical that his tax cuts would do anything to help cut down gun violence.  

      He knows that, which is why he threw a fit.  Ryan ego is so big that he can't stand to be challenged, especially in a sarcastic or aggressive manner.  

    •  Yes. That's also a good angle (0+ / 0-)

      He's not mature enough to deal with controversy or a difficult situation. It's the 3 a.m. call and he rolls over and refuses to answer.

      Warning: That light at the end of the tunnel just might be an oncoming train.
