Unlocking Obama's Economic Vision (Spoiler: It's Blurry)

What do you find in the Ryan budget that is so wrong? It is easy to through it out there without any support but of course we can't do that with the democrat budget as they haven't produced one in over three years. I have problems with Ryan's budget too but it is because it doesn't cut the size of gov't nor does it balance the budget until too late. Democrats have no legitimacy with the budget because they have just bailed out and voters have let them do it.

Wednesday’s press conference marked the first occasion journalists have had to question the President directly – about anything – in eight months, and President Obama tipped his hat on his plans to confront the coming fiscal cliff with chastened House Republicans. In short, he will probably raise tax rates for the wealthy.

But thanks to an explosive and, as my colleague Donny Deutsch put it, testosterone-fueled defense of UN Ambassador Susan Rice, a lot of what the President also said about his plans to reduce the deficit went ignored. That’s a shame – they were quite illuminating.
