As I watched the debate Thursday, I thought Ryan won it. He seemed to
be serious, thoughtful, and knowledgeable and his sneering opponent
appeared often, and shall we say inappropriate.
Still there were times when I could not understand why Ryan did
not strike hard with questions such as, do you not realize sir that
your policies have turned savers and investors into suckers. Sir, your
policies are destroying our dollar, you could not come up with a more
destructive decision than to damage your nations currency and
discourage if not permanently harm your saving, investing, productive
Then it came to me, the reason Ryan did not bring this up is
because to him it is a secondary experience. It is like someone tells
you what it is like to be in an airplane crash, no matter how graphic
and descriptive you will never know as well as a person who has
experienced a crash.
Mr. Ryan, who has my total support, as all public
servants lives in a world where the government or taxpayers cushion
them against adverse economic problems. This is the best argument
against lifetime politicians, only those who have marched through the
economic battlefields can totally rebut the Vice President's views.
