*above the trash talk.

"With all your past complaints about selective editing! Bowles also goes on to call Ryan’s budget drastic and a radical change" I had to point this out on Facebook. And Grandpa Ryan is a likable guy. He doesn't lower himself to the absurd dialogue that the likes of Backmann, Palin and West have done. He keeps it professional and policy driven. Even if one doesn't agree with his policy's there's really no reason not to like a guy who raises about the trash talk.

I recognized a wile back that Ryan had a nack for everything Bowles praises. The issue is not Ryans gifts or his moments of willingness to work with a two party system. This so called "Ryan budget" is not the best of Ryan. It represents a Ryan guided by other influences.

Anyone who considers voters' opinion of congress meaningless hasn't been paying attention the past two years. And no one mentioned PPP.

PPP surveys all adults, and chronically over represents democrats in its sample. Besides arguing over congressional opinions is virtually meaningless in a presidential election.

Pew Research finds that GOP Congressional approval ratings are about 20% behind Dems, GOP numbers have been falling since February – especially among Republicans. And so far, choosing Ryan hasn’t won Romney any bump in the polls. Selective editing also involves ending a soundbite prematurely, creating a false suggestion of the speaker’s intent or point.

Nothing selective about that clip, it has no cuts in it. Show me what was cut out.

Why do they feel this way? maybe it is because there has been no serious attempt to get the spending and debt under control. Maybe that is why the latest poll has Ryan with an approval rating of 50% amongst LIKELY voters.

Today, Ryan is the face of a Congress with a 10% approval rating; one that more than 60% of the people polled think may be the worst Congress ever.

With all your past complaints about selective editing! Bowles also goes on to call Ryan’s budget drastic and a radical change. http://www.bloomberg.com/video/erskine-bowles-on-paul-ryan-in-its-entirety-oPg2pwVbRUGosr1XNK~nQg.html And just last week, in the Washington Post, Bowles gave Romney’s tax plan a thumb’s down – and ROMNEY is the lead guy on the GOP ticket: “As a businessman with real respect and appreciation for Mitt Romney’s business career, I plead, from one numbers guy to another: You must have a balanced plan that reforms the tax code in a progressive, pro-growth manner and produces additional revenue if you are serious about reducing the deficit by at least $4 trillion without disrupting the country’s fragile economic recovery and hurting the disadvantaged. The plan must produce enough capital to invest in education, infrastructure and high-value-added research so that the United States can compete effectively in the knowledge-based global economy…” “…This month, Romney said that his tax reform proposal is “very similar to the Simpson-Bowles plan.” How I wish it were. I will be the first to cheer if Romney decides to embrace our plan. Unfortunately, the numbers say otherwise: His reform plan leaves too many tax breaks in place and, as a result, does nothing to reduce the debt…” “…So although I give Romney credit for pledging to reform the tax code to reduce loopholes, his current proposal will not take us to the promised land. Our commission’s tax plan broadens the base, simplifies the code, reduces tax expenditures and generates $1 trillion for deficit reduction while making the tax code more progressive. The Romney plan, by sticking to revenue-neutrality and leaving in place tax breaks, would raise taxes on the middle class and do nothing to shrink the deficit.” http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/why-romneys-tax-plan-wont-cut-the-deficit/2012/08/09/37fb2d20-e19c-11e1-a25e-15067bb31849_story.html?wpisrc=nl_wonk
