GOP Leadership Ignores Ryan

John Batchelor notes Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) -- the Republican party's "fiscal star" -- skipped last week's "Pledge to America" rollout.

"Why was Ryan a no-show? Ryan's flacks claim his absence was a scheduling problem, which is a deliberately uncreative excuse. Ryan's allies say he skipped the event because he's genuinely stumped about why the leadership ignored his celebrated "Roadmap" that lays out a utopia in which America would solve health care, Social Security, taxes and jobs with Leprechaun dust and diligence. Nothing of Ryan's years of homework is to be found in the "Pledge," and the absence is so obvious that the whispering is that Ryan is either in fresh disfavor or worse, self-exile."
