Paul Ryan — An Emerging GOP Star

I just watched the video of Rep. Paul Ryan on the Chris Matthews show posted at HotAir.  I have to disagree with Allah.  The interview did not go as expected.

Sure, Matthews was an insufferable prick trying to play gotcha with the GOP’s fiscal wunderkind rather than engage him in debate.  Duh.  Matthews is always an insufferable prick reduced to spouting Democrat talking points these days.  He is not even an interesting insufferable prick any more.

But what surprised me was how well Ryan carried himself, and how well he defended himself and the GOP agenda without resorting to mere talking points.  The contrast between Ryan and both Matthews and his forgettable (D) counterpart on the show was striking. 

Ryan showed that he has the stones to venture into enemy territory and the brains to more than hold his own.  Keep an eye on this guy.
