GREGORY: Is Paul Ryan Too Radical for a Presidential Ticket?
Speaking on Meet the Press, host David Gregory wonders whether Paul Ryan, because of his plans to eventually balance the federal budget, is too radical for a presidential ticket: “So I have a question about Paul Ryan. Paul Ryan's chairman of budget committee. You know, I mean like Marco Rubio, guys are the same age, 41 years old, and a big future ahead of him in the Republican Party. But the question, chairman, is whether a guy like Paul Ryan is a little too incendiary. Would the left be able to really go to work on him because of his views about Medicare, because of his budget? Do you think Romney looks at that and says, "Boy, he's attractive, he doubles down on my message, but he'd just be too much of a lightning rod?”
