Adult Leadership

Mitt Romney has done the voters a favor. With the selection of Paul Ryan, he has made this election about ideas. President Obama is offering class envy, continued crushing debt and deficits, and higher taxes on “the rich”–in other words, more of the same. Romney and Ryan, by contrast, are offering solutions for an economy that has a record nearly four straight years of unemployment over 8 percent (with a real jobless rate nearly double that), a $16 trillion national debt, 105 million people on the government dole, including 47 million on food stamps, etc. Obama is saying this is the best we can do, while R&R say America can and must do better.

So the choice is clear. Can the American people still stomach adult leadership? We’ll find out in November. In the meantime, I can’t wait for the debates.
