Paul Ryan at The Villages
This morning, VP candidate Paul Ryan gave a rousing speech at a rally in The Villages.
Located about 60 miles north of Orlando, close to where the Florida's Turnpike and I-75 meet, The Villages is a sprawling retirement community, which just so happens to be the world's largest. As it has grown since the 1990s, The Villages has been a required stop by candidates not only running for office in Florida, but nationally.
At this rally, Paul Ryan's introduced his mother to the crowd, a Medicare recipient and Florida resident. He went directly at the Medicare issue, defending his budgetary plan, as well as articulating what Mitt Romney plans to do, while reminding the audience the truth about Barack Obama's actions on medicare.
With the mediscare tactics being practiced by Obama and the left, Paul Ryan is smart to get out there and stay on the offense; putting the true two plans side-by-side and letting the voters decide.
It seems pretty apparent to me the mediscare tactics have failed and will help to Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan winning Florida, something I predicted a few months ago. This is a discussion that we need to have and I hope to see Mitt Romney's campaign continue along the same path.
Paul Ryan's speech at The Villages was excellent, not only because of the medicare issue, but because it passionately embraced the values and ideals of Conservatism and how they apply to the issues this country faces from domestic policy to national security and foreign policy. With the formation of the Romney-Ryan ticket, we are clearly seeing a Republican ticket built on ideas, that will campaign on those ideas; and that is a good thing for the American people!
