The dust hasn't even settled yet from the announcement of Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney's running mate, and the Democrats are already on the attack. Their plan is the old, tired tactic of scaring seniors, but this time, both Ryan and Romney stand ready to fire back at Obama on Medicare and any issue that may come their way.
In an interview on "60 Minutes," Romney and Ryan took questions from CBS News' Bob Schieffer on the issue of Medicare.
Of course, the questioning was framed from the position of "Here is what seniors are being told... now tell me how that's wrong." This is a defensive position, and goes from the angle that Obama may be the one putting out lies and trying to deceive seniors. All Schieffer adds is that Romney and Ryan have "to do a little selling" to seniors.
Don't you think that "selling" would be easier if people like Schieffer and others in the media actually portrayed the candidates' positions correctly? The media never bring up what Obama is actually doing to Medicare.
