It is a a sad commentary when someone like Paul Ryan passes as an expert. I guess these days an expert is an idelogue who can create an Excel spreadsheet and a PowerPoint presenation. Never mind that the numbers don't add up and the ideas are rehashed from the Goldwater era. He is an expert!

The definition of an expert: That is a person who knows more and more about less and less, until they eventually know all there is to know about nothing.

You have to know there's something seriously amiss when a supposed "Christian" embraces and glorifies the philosophy of a heartless admitted atheist.

Just because Ryan is viewed as a budget expert, doesn't make him one.

"But he also likely realized that a debate in his area of expertise could provide a huge political payoff and solid footing well ahead of the next race for the White House."---Solid footing for the next race for the White House?? Please do run in 2016 and then you will have to explain again your toxic budget plans. You won't be able to hide in Alabama and Texas to get elected like you did in the last month of the campaign.

What a joke , he gave us a budget that everyone thumbed their nose at and they put him in charge. The regressive perfect budget, cut programs from people who need it and give it to the people who don't need it. The rich.

This mans a fraud but he fits perfectly in the regressive party. Totally out for themselves and the 1% who own and control the party.

To this day, I still do not understand why nobody in the media or the debates challenged him and asked him if he is such a fiscal conservative, why did he vote for TARP, the bank bailouts, the GM/Chrysler bailout and voted in favor of raising the debt ceiling eight consecutive times under the Bush Administration.
