As letter writers gear up in opposition, and as reporters seek to poke holes in Paul Ryan, his positions, and his supporters, could we all just take a deep breath?
First, kudos to the Globe editorial page for calling on Saturday for Mitt Romney to pick Ryan as his running mate, in order that we might have a serious conversation about the fiscal future of the country.
Now, about that conversation: One side has a plan. It’s similar to the plan proposed by the Simpson Bowles Commission, established by the president and then ignored. And it’s a basis for discussion. The other side has no plan, no budget for three years, and only scare tactics and fear-mongering.
Really, now, who's “radical”?
