Ryan Strikes Out At Obama
“History will not be kind to a president who, when it came time to confront our generation’s defining challenge, chose to duck and run,” Ryan said. “The president refuses to take responsibility for the economy and refuses to offer a credible plan to address the most predictable economic crisis in our history.
“Like his reckless budgets, today’s speech by President Obama is as revealing as it is disappointing: While others lead by offering real solutions, he has chosen to distort the truth and divide Americans in order to distract from his failed record,” added Ryan, who is in Wisconsin campaigning with Mitt Romney ahead of Tuesday’s primaries there. “His empty promises are quickly becoming broken promises – and the American people will hold him accountable for this violation of their trust.”
Obama tried to swing back, but it was a swing and a miss:
“Instead of moderating their views even slightly, the Republicans running Congress right now have doubled down,” Obama said Tuesday at The Associated Press luncheon. “They’re proposed a budget so far to the right that it makes the Contract with America look like the New Deal.”
This is coming from a President who’s governed so far to the left that to him, the New Deal would be unforgivably conservative, because it doesn’t go far enough.
