  •  Ryan is and always has been a fraud (8+ / 0-)

    Pierce has his number - and that of the press - here.

    Quite simply, this is the courtier press refusing to give up its chew-toy. Years ago, for reasons I still don't understand, this complete charlatan was inducted into the League Of Serious Men, despite the fact that his "budget" is a naked blueprint for a plutocratic dystopia. He trotted it out in 2010 and was laughed at by, among other people, the laff riots at the CBO. He ran for vice-president and the Democrats hung Ryan's zombie-eyed granny-starving around Willard Romney's neck -- where, it must be said, it fit like a tailored short. Ryan and his economic snake oil was resoundingly rejected by the entire country, and now people are lining up to help him peddle it again.

      meeting turned to Ryan and said, "You know Paul, you and Mitt Romney didn't win the election, I did.  And Americans don't want Medicare voucherized or SS messed with.  So we aren't going to take your deal"  "You lost, I won, now it's your turn to negotiate with Senator Reid."

      I would love it if he said that to that little shit head.
