What you missed by not watching Sunday night’s Democratic debate
The influential political publication The Hill is beginning to see what the Stately Manor has long detected in its powerful political spectrometer: Our nation is turning its lonely eyes to Paul Ryan.
Sayeth the Hill: “The contrast is stark between Ryan, the GOP’s highest-ranking elected official, and Trump, the front-runner for the party’s presidential nomination. This month, the Speaker hosted a presidential candidate forum in South Carolina on reducing poverty, an issue he highlighted again with his choice of State of the Union guests.
“And late last year, Ryan even sparked presidential chatter among House Republicans after he gave a speech at the Library of Congress vowing to present a bold conservative agenda in 2016.”
You don’t think Paul Ryan was trumping the front-runner when he chose Nikki Haley for the Republican response?
That isn’t stopping self-absorbed Tea Party purists from Green Bay, well outside Ryan’s district, from loose talk about primary-ing (verb transitive) Ryan. Better the circular firing squad than concentrating political fire on Russ Feingold for these tinfoil hats. Ryan-haters are being fueled by the Breitbart website, which has gone truth-is-out-there conspiracist since the untimely death of its namesake founder.
Slip this into tonight’s State of the State
Scott Walker should insist that venues that post themselves as being free of firearms should be held financially liable for firearm casualties that occur unless they implement airport-level weapons screening.
To placate those who want “gun safety,” vow to resist calls to empty the prisons back into the community.
Finally, adopt small-government conservatism. Government has no business operating a business loan shop. Close down WEDC’s business loan operation.
