In Paul Ryan, Obama gets his target

Domenico Montanaro: “For more than a year, President Obama has been trying to run against Paul Ryan and House Republicans. And now — with Ryan’s selection as Mitt Romney’s running mate — he is.”

“It started in April of last year when the president invited the Wisconsin congressman and House Budget Committee chairman to hear his speech at George Washington University here in Washington on fiscal policy. Asking Ryan to be there might have seemed like a gesture of good will toward Ryan, who had just weeks earlier unveiled his controversial budget.”

“Instead, sitting in the front row, Ryan listened as his plan — and by extension Ryan himself — was eviscerated by the president of the United States.”
