Romney picks Ryan
This is perfect to highlight the stark differences between the progressive and regressive agenda. Recall this post where the Catholic nuns and bishops find Ryan's budget plan immoral. The regressives spin it as the poor are lazy and freeloaders so screw them, whereas the Catholics and progressives want to offer a hand up, not a hand out. In this one Jeffrey Sachs rips Ryan a new asshole on true democratic values. The differences couldn't be more forcefully drawn. Also recall Obama's April address that laid out how implementing the Ryan budget would affect us. Choosing Ryan will no doubt energize the rabid regressive base but they are dwindling. This is a battle for the 'independents,' and hopefully the majority of them can see through the spin and make the sane choice for a better, more compassionate and equitable America this coming November.
