Yesterday it was Florida Senator Marco Rubio and former President George H.W. Bush who endorsed Mitt Romney for president. The media’s reaction was a yawn, claiming more out of hope than out of belief that the endorsements were not “high impact.”
What will they say about Friday’s endorsement of Romney by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan just days before the critical Republican primary election in Ryan’s home state of Wisconsin?
Perhaps it’s no surprise that the presidential candidate who most aggressively supported Ryan’s budget proposal gets the endorsement. But for Ryan it is clearly more than that.
Here’s Paul Ryan quoted in The Hill note linked above:
“We vote here Tuesday in Wisconsin. Lots of my friends, family, supporters are asking me, you know, ‘Who do you think we should vote for?’ I have two criteria I am using to make my decision to vote in our primary Tuesday. Who is the best person to be president - who will be the best president? And who has the best chance of defeating Barack Obama? And in my mind, Mitt Romney is clearly that person.”
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.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
