Paul Ryan’s Response

Overall, much better than Obama’s main attraction.  The President, of course, enjoys the benefit of pomp and circumstance, and the setting for Ryan’s speech — an empty committee room, it looked like — was poorly chosen.  But he came across as competent, knowledgeable, and earnest.  Which, by all accounts and from what I have seen, he is.  A good introduction to the national stage.

The best line:

Millions of families have fallen on hard times not because of our ideals of free enterprise — but because our leaders failed to live up to those ideals; because of poor decisions made in Washington and Wall Street that caused a financial crisis, squandered our savings, broke our trust, and crippled our economy.

Amen, brother.  Screwing up the economy this badly can only be accomplished by a public/private partnership of regulators and rent-seekers. 

The always awesome Jennifer Rubin has much more worth reading.
