Romney-Ryan is the Democratic Dream Team.
The Ryan Budget is the motherlode of golden opportunities. Everybody knows that the Democrats will run half-true, exaggerated attacks to persuade stupid voters. This election is all about attracting the thin slice of mostly ignorant people who are still undecided.
Here's the beautiful part: the more you understand the facts of the Ryan Budget, it's extreme, politically unviable nature comes into foucs. The Ryan Budget is just as toxic to smart independents as it is to those coveted dummies. This is icing on the cake.
I was just watching some lady on Face the Nation debating New Gingrich, who is normally a sharp debater. The woman points out that the Ryan Budget doesn't eliminate the deficit for 40 years because it does nothing with military spending, and it drastically cuts revenues. (This is totally different from the more sane Simpson-Bowles approach.) Ryan lowers the deficit completely on the backs of vulnerable people.
Uhh, to make a long story slightly longer: Gingrich's response to an intelligent, detailed attack on the Ryan budget was, "we need to reform the way that the CBO scores bills."
That's all he's got. The only defense for the Ryan Budget is to blame the referee.
