Just hours after sitting in the front row while the president verbally walloped his plan to reduce the debt, Rep. Paul Ryan called President Obama’s speech on deficit reduction “a political broadside” and accused the White House of “poisoning wells” on the budget debate.
"What we heard today was not fiscal leadership from our commander in chief,” Ryan said. “What we heard today is a political broadside from our campaigner in chief.”
Calling the president’s speech “very sad,” the House Budget Committee chief said he had previously viewed Obama’s invitation to attend his remarks at George Washington University as an “olive branch."
“Instead what we got was a speech that was excessively partisan, dramatically inaccurate, and hopelessly inadequate to addressing our country's fiscal challenges,” he said.
I don't see what he's getting so pissy about. I mean, seriously, did he really expect to get a lollipop for proposing the repeal of Medicare? Welcome to the big leagues, sonnyboy.
