Are You an Extremist?

After Rep. Paul Ryan was announced as Mitt Romney’s running mate, it took less than 24 hours for The New York Times to define Ryan as an “extremist.” In a lead editorial, the paper bannered this sub-headline: “With no plan of his own, Mr. Romney can’t distance himself from Mr. Ryan’s extremist vision.”

That “vision” would be federal spending cuts and entitlement reform.

While chairman of the House Budget Committee, Ryan sent two spending bills to the House, both of which passed but were killed in the Senate, which is controlled by the Democrats. The bills cut federal programs across the board. Ryan is also a fan of reforming Medicare and Social Security, which are going bankrupt.

In the bubble that is the liberal media, trimming government spending and making entitlements more fiscally viable are extreme positions. That’s somewhat ironic because President Obama’s strategy of massive government spending and borrowing is perhaps the most extreme economic plan in the nation’s history. Never before has the USA run up such an enormous debt and had so little to show for it.
