Oh, Goodie. Mitt chose Paul Ryan. We now know what the campaign will be about: the Ryan budget, which slashes social services, redesigns Medicare and Social Security, and eviscerates the safety net, giving away the savings through massive tax cuts for the wealthy, who already pay the lowest taxes in modern history. If the Republicans can persuade Americans that this is in their best interest, it will be because the Democrats are completely inept at communicating with the voters, something I definitely worry about, given their recent inability to counter the extreme right wing agenda. This should be a slam dunk for Obama, but nothing is certain in this political climate.
