    Bush never really came out with a concrete plan as opposed to a fog of ideas, suggestions, and leaks. No matter what you might not want to see in such a plan, you could believe that it was in there someplace.

    We can have change for the better.

        I like your sig line but it's not true for the GOP.  They've backed themselves into a mighty unpopular corner so those dwindling few left have a great deal more power over the Party.  Those people don't see the politics of trial balloons vs straight forward and no surrender attitude.  No, Ryan, like the others, see Shrub's ideas as being American.  They were from the conservative wing, a Godly man who defended pro-life, and were worthy of praise.  Only scorn befalls Obama so they feel they are gaining ground (though I think this year has staggered them a bit).
