    I go toward that which I'd presume to oppose sooner than that with which I'd be apt to agree.

    I want to be certain I hate it. As far as HRC is concerned, I'm sure of it -- I hate her.

    Ever read some of his opinion pieces? It is amazing that he doesn't get castrated by the intellectuals of the GOP for being a total vomit bag.
    I won't go this far but I do think he's over-rated.

    When his dad died, his family depended on these programs to make it. I'd say the caricature that he's the kind of person who looks down on (as he puts it) the majority of Americans who at one point or another in their lives need some form of assistance is very likely to be false. People tend not to denigrate their own history.

    Yeah, but here's the thing, he's a policy wonk, this means he speaks wonkanese. Most Americans don't. Most analyses I've seen of his policy papers puts him as a big spending republican.

    Here's the problem. He's going after that which can't be screwed up and people don't have the faith in their government to not screw it up. When you've got opposition with interests in seeing you fail, regardless if you're policy is 98% the same as theirs, you're gonna lock tusks with the Glory Hogs and they're gonna scream "murderous, capitalist pig!" at ya and to anyone who'll listen.

    This makes it difficult to explain the nuanced and delicate, as I'm sure you can understand.

    It is completely fallacious to think that the GOP's problem, that the reason why they're in disarray is due to cultural and social issues.

    It's -- to quote Carville -- "the economy, stupid."
    No, obama won because the young voters turned out. Young voters dont vote on economic issues.

    Ryan and others can see that changes to entitlements must be made or they will cease to exist. He is merely wanting to have the uncomfortable conversation regarding how the g can say no to some things.

    Its coming folks, the boomers are retiring and the mellinials are failing to launch professionally and socially.

    Who will pay for the entitlement generation?
