“Fix it or forget it,” that was a protest slogan in the 1970s that applied to government and its policies by people protesting war. Now, the slogan may apply to the GOP. We witnessed a couple of weeks of introspection and in the end, conservatives have gone quiet and sparky Paul Ryan emerged frisky and positive.
Bobby Jindal is a “fix-it-or-forget-it” kind of guy. Paul Ryan is a fixer upper.
I keep harping that voters need to staff both parties with improve leadership with more balanced qualifications. We don’t need professional politicians as much as people with a resume of extraordinary achievement and management accomplishments. We need inventors and innovation applied to government enterprise. We need leadership that inspires private enterprise.
We need an economic model that is sustainable.
If Paul Ryan believes that the Obama second term will help them, that is a privative outlook, don’t you think?
First, his proposition is that Obama and Americans believe in the “big government theory.” That is simply a mischaracterization that resulted in his leading the GOP to failure. He still doesn’t get it.
Ryan threw out a new word, “prudence.” That means he wants his party to be reasonable and most everyone would agree with that.
"TRENDING: Ryan expects second Obama term to help future GOP chances
Posted by CNN's Gregory Wallace
(CNN) - Rep. Paul Ryan, the 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee, joined the voices laying out a path for the future of the GOP, saying in a Saturday speech that President Barack Obama's second term presents both new challenges and opportunities for his party.
"In the president's first term, we argued against big government in theory. In his second, we will argue against it in practice," he said at a summit of conservative leaders organized by the National Review Institute, a group connected to the conservative magazine. His prepared remarks were posted online by the organization.
"Now that the president is implementing his agenda, we'll see that the benefits are far less than advertised," he added.
Ryan called on his party to exert "prudence" and "find the good in every situation - and choose the best means to achieve it."
