Ah, Republican logic. Telling voters they're stupid or gullible or brainwashed by the almighty Democratic machine is a great way to make voters agree with you, right?

Must be:

On Charlie Sykes show, Ryan says the president has "duped" people about his Medicare plan, once they realize it won't buy his rhetoric.

And why is Ryan so sure that the president somehow used his extra special secret Kenyan ninja powers to dupe the country?
Paul Ryan on @SykesCharlie show: "We were actually winning the Medicare debate in the beginning."

Right. So, they were "winning" with their "end Medicare as we know it" plan, until that crafty Obama got his hooks into voters and "duped" them into not wanting to end Medicare as we know it after all. And if only the easily dupable electorate would stop buying the president's rhetoric, they could all go back to being super-smart and Romney/Ryan could go back to "winning."

Yep, great talking point. No way this one won't work.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
