Rep. Paul Ryan noted that many voters "don't think or know that we have good ideas" on fighting poverty and "helping people move up the ladder of life." Mona, just how would people know the Republicans have good ideas? They never talk, except to each other, or listen to the establishment Republicans who's advice just cost Ryan the election. The first things Republican politicians have to admit is that their war plan is a loser! Look at Bob Dole, John McCain, and Romney/Ryan. If losing 3 out of 4 hasn't shown you that you have the wrong coach, then there is no hope for you! I can hardly get through a single hour of TV without the name Obama comming out of my TV set. I can't get through a day without seeing Obama's face!

It is like your mothers admonition as you head for school to encounter the school bully: Now, don't fight, Johnnie!!! Fighting is not nice!

Admitting it would offend the takers?

You don't think 5% of the voters voted for the free stuff party? That's enough to swing the election! Do you think the Hispanics chose the Democrats after reading both parties platforms, or over their concern about who Romney might nominate to the Supreme Court?

I am sure if Custer were here today he would say:

Always remember to say "Obama is a good man, a good father etc!
HE IS JUST IN OVER HIS HEAD!
The Republican Party is picking up the pieces. Speaking of the ticket's loss for the first time since the election, Rep. Paul Ryan noted that many voters "don't think or know that we have good ideas" on fighting poverty and "helping people move up the ladder of life."

It's not surprising that Ryan, who got his start working for Jack Kemp and William Bennett at Empower America, sees the world this way. Though it's a total secret to members of the press and the Democratic Party, conservative intellectuals have been grappling with the problems of poverty in America for...
