The 2012 election now boils down to Fantasy (Democrats) vs. Reality (Republicans).
Let's have a liberal explain the stakes.
Ryan refutes the Democratic Party’s bogus arguments. He knows that our domestic spending trajectory is unsustainable and that liberals who fail to get it under control are leading their constituents over a cliff, just like in Europe. Eventually, you can’t borrow enough money to make good on your promises, and everyone’s screwed. Ryan understands that the longer we ignore the debt crisis and postpone serious budget cuts—the liberal equivalent of denying global warming—the more painful the reckoning will be. There’s nothing compassionate about that kind of irresponsibility.
Obama can continue to campaign in Fantasyland.
Reality is out there - whether they like it or not.
