    Paul Ryan on Obama's Speech: 'Excessively Partisan, Dramatically Inaccurate, and Hopelessly Inadequate'

    4:16 PM, Apr 13, 2011 •

    House Budget chairman Paul Ryan just released the following statement in response to President Obama's speech on deficit reduction:

    “When the President reached out to ask us to attend his speech, we were expecting an olive branch. Instead, his speech was excessively partisan, dramatically inaccurate, and hopelessly inadequate to address our fiscal crisis. What we heard today was not fiscal leadership from our commander-in-chief; we heard a political broadside from our campaigner-in-chief.

    “Last year, in the absence of a serious budget, the President created a Fiscal Commission. He then ignored its recommendations and omitted any of its major proposals from his budget, and now he wants to delegate leadership to yet another commission to solve a problem he refuses to confront.

    “We need leadership, not a doubling down on the politics of the past. By failing to seriously confront the most predictable economic crisis in our history, this President’s policies are committing our children to a diminished future. We are looking for bipartisan solutions, not partisan rhetoric. When the President is ready to get serious about confronting this challenge, we'll be here.”

    The fact that they expected an olive branch speaks volumes of the absolute shortsighted, disconnected mindset of the house and senate Republicans. Do they really think they were elected to work with the Democrats. Do they really think that the Dems will play fair?

    The were elected to purge the Democrats, and the constituency is wondering when they're going to take the gloves off. It's time to fight these illegitimate children using the tactics they themselves employ.
