PAUL RYAN WANTS YOUR MEDICARE + THE WHITEHOUSE – RIGHT! – AND PIGS CAN FLY, TOO!

.

Romney supposedly selected Paul Ryan as his vice-presidential running mate based on focus groups that said putting Medicare in play as a Republican “meme” would win the election for Romney + Ryan.  The idea is to base their presidential campaign on Paul Ryan’s plan that would basically dismantle Medicare as we know it and instead replace it with “vouchers”.  
.
This “flies in the face” of the fact that this same plan was already anathema to a majority of the public just recently where it had something like a 70% disapproval rating.  But the focus groups paid for by Team Romney think this is the ticket to winning back the White House.
.
And of course, pigs can fly.
.
Just on the face of it the “timing” is all wrong.  You are at the beginning of the largest retirement group in history – the Boomer Generation.  In the face of the economic collapse of 2007-2008 and the uncertainty it has brought about the very last thing a presidential candidate running this year would seemingly want to do would be to pick the largest share of potential voters (Boomers) and try to snatch away a well-run, well-managed program that directly affects ALL members of that group in the most basic way.

But hey, pigs really can fly!
