I was fascinated to read U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan's comments to the Wisconsin State Journal editorial board. His latest stop on a post-election media tour demonstrates an alarming inability to read national vital signs.
Given the vast amount of financial resources from both super-PACS and wealthy individuals, one must believe that the Romney-Ryan ticket had the requisite monetary support. Why were the hired election organizers and pollsters unable to accurately predict and help win the election?
If he was surprised at losing his vice presidential bid, I would venture to guess that his predictions regarding the nation's debt might also be suspect.
He says: "Republican polling was all wrong." A dose of humility in acknowledging that his party's platform was rejected by a majority of voters would go a long way in humanizing his auto-responses.
