Paul Ryan (R-WI) spread what can only be seen as Glenn Beck logic this morning on Meet the Press. Ryan spent an entire clip impugning President Obama’s motives and then wrapped it up by lecturing that we can’t move forward by impugning people’s motives.
If only Paul Ryan would listen to Paul Ryan.
Here is the poisoned well of a premise for Ryan’s argument that Republicans are being reasonable on budget issues and the President is not:
“Well, I don’t think that the President thinks that we actually have a fiscal crisis. He’s been reportedly saying to our leaders that he doesn’t think we have a spending problem, we have a healthcare problem. That leads me to think that he thinks we ought to have more government controlled healthcare and rations. I don’t think that’s going to work.”
