Fear from Ryan

By Bob Griendling

Paul Ryan's delivery is smooth. But his message is one of fear. He does not inspire and when compared to the president's he falls short in comforting a worried nation.

But he delivered an ideological treatise, which can serve him and his party well. What Democrats lack is a coherent set of principles that inform their policies. Ideology is a dirty word, but it is what many voters look for. They want a moral anchor. Republicans are much better at throwing people one.
