→ Making the Argument for Ryan

A description of Paul Ryan from Rich Lowry over at National Review:

Ryan is an ideologue in the best sense of the term. He is motivated by ideas and knows what he believes and why. But he’s not blinkered. He is an explainer and a persuader.

The media and the rest of the left will attack any selection1 of Congressman Ryan as Mitt Romney simply “catering to the far right.” Such criticism is usually code for “damn it, that was a good move.”
