I'm so Michelle to you first.
This is gonna energize the base -- pick bad pick -- think it's a great pick it'll definitely energize.
The base on the right and the left which it has -- I think -- is done the American people a huge favor by picking Paul Ryan you've paid attention to the news coverage since it was announced on Saturday we've been talking about the deficit.
The debt tax reform entitlements Medicare and it's elevated the national debate.
Up to a level worthy -- the American people it's addressing the issues that we care about.
Instead of negative attack ads tax returns Bain Capital so it's great people and try to be very happy because now we can talk about real solutions to solving our fiscal.
Problems and -- It's good point is -- John that there is some reel him.
Policy meat on the bones which is something the -- when he has been lacking or unwilling to tell us about so far.
Now this does make this much more of an intellectual debate about the future of direction of the country.
-- I I totally it's an excellent point the and -- -- I'm sure we'll drag it out into the gutters in an up again.
But obvious for a brief shining moment we're discussing big issues and they're big differences between the parties -- Big differences as to how we view the future Medicare Social Security taxes.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if were able to talk about these big differences and actually have a national dialogue in the voters were -- Pay attention and vote accordingly I think that'll be great group.
So do indeed but do you have confidence of that will survive but it'll take one -- won anything what I can see Russia from I have some will grill on the on the nonsense again of what -- -- from his sense.
Probably -- Alberta commission.
Yeah how often -- it but it didn't does it mean.
Is it too is this one of those things -- -- I guess that is the point is going to be this temporary blip everybody's excited right now on the Republican side.
But in the end it doesn't make that much difference.
Well there's no question that.
Democrats are still gonna come out negative attack at -- had David Axelrod all -- people.
I'm on the Sunday shows on TV this weekend talking about -- -- scare that Paul Ryan's gonna gut Medicare as we know it.
-- and so this.
Negative reaction towards Paul Ryan what in fact the facts prove otherwise but.
At least -- still talking about Medicare and it's bringing to the forefront of our national debate the proper role of government the size and scope of government.
What we're gonna do about entitlements so I think it'll help continue the debate through the next what eighty something days before the election but it's not to say don't be negative ads for a little.
Couple of our viewers weighing in -- David Lawson says Jonathan even -- -- way to -- someone -- And possible -- legal and Paul Ryan it is just choice of which one will lead us to collapse he not Obama will do it the fastest and Romney will do it in a few years and you take it and -- -- optimistic view -- the way the world is going to.
I can you read this is the Ryan picked -- -- make calls Bubba.
Meaning President Clinton -- the Democratic Convention that Obama will be the democratic candidate for president and Hillary as his running mate any chance that little.
Dream ticket comes to policy.
Mobilized about 100 trillion -- very not I think that that's that's not gonna happen.
But the idea that look where we're having this conversation we're talking about Medicare and I think yeah I would differ little bit on the in the negative -- I think.
You know telling the truth and having the proper today because that's what the reality is.
Ryan has come out for essentially privatizing Medicare.
And setting a limit and using vouchers now I for one given credit for having the guts to actually.
Propose something when those politicians are just kind of ignoring it and saying oh pay no attention to that big 800 pound gorilla.
You know what he's done I think -- been put Florida in the Obama column because it's scary a lot of seniors.
-- necessarily as we talk about this more often it's not privatizing Medicare.
Exactly it's it's government vouchers which would allow more competition more towards what -- sure you wanna go to.
But as we talk about the fact -- Medicare is gonna be insolvent twelve years anyway and so talking about.
Paul -- putting an end Medicare as we know -- false it's dishonest because it's it's on its -- way out -- -- I -- -- Medicare right well let me let me just.
