Ryan response

By Bernie Tokarz

Nice response by Paul Ryan, delivery much better than Bobby Jindal and much lower key than Bob McDonnell in the House of Delegates Chamber last year.

Ryan gave a mature and adult like talk to the American people.

He stuck to a few simple themes. Mentioning exclusions of union leaders and companies from the healthcare program was a great point.

I think he did a good job with tone and stayed on a topic that he knows well: the Budget.

He also did a good job sticking to the message of the election and really put the President and Democrats on the spot for the stimulus and other spending.

Linking the 09' stimulus and subsequent budgets to investment cuts the legs out from under his newest initiatives.

Using the words like "obligation" and "responsibly" is great.

Talking about principles, the Declaration, founders and the Constitution certainly will play well.

Nice to hear limited government and individual liberty mentioned.

This is a great quote to end this post: "We need to reclaim our American system of limited government, low taxes, reasonable regulations, and sound money, which has blessed us with unprecedented prosperity. And it has done more to help the poor than any other economic system ever designed.
