Yesterday I noted the calculated cynicism of the Democratic plan to turn Paul Ryan into a “bogeyman” for submitting a plan, the “Roadmap,” for reforming entitlements spending. The Weekly Standard’s Mike Warren reports that the architect of that plan, Democratic senator Chuck Schumer of New York, can’t even claim that he’s read the Roadmap. And a few of his Democratic colleagues in the Senate admit they’ve never read it:
While Schumer was silent, some of his Democratic colleagues openly admitted they haven’t read Ryan’s plan. “I haven’t had a chance to look at anything,” Ben Nelson of Nebraska told me. “I looked at it briefly when it came out last fall, I think,” said Mark Pryor of Arkansas. “I didn’t master the details.”
“I use Google Maps,” was all Richard Durbin, the number two Democrat in the Senate, would say when asked if he’d read the plan.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
