    Favor his week and Paul Ryan is the reason why.  The media have shown a bit of skepticism of his claims and many GOPers have now been quoted as saying that we don't have an immediate debt crisis.  Once you make that concession, then Obama's argument that we need a balanced approach to addressing our budget needs is more difficult to assail.  There weren't a lot of GOPers willing to give Ryan's proposals a public embrace, and Bob Corker was openly talking about raising revenue on the morning shows.  Many GOPers were reminded this past week of how they lost Senate and House seats because of the association with Ryan, and that Ryan did not move the needle in the midwest.  The President's clear statement to the GOP caucus that debt is not our primary problem made an impression.
