I don’t get it. Will those over 55 really think it’s fair to put everyone else in a voucher system? Will those under 55 really believe that a voucher system will be better for them? Will the Tea Partiers be able to sustain their enthusiasm if the focus shifts from repealing “Obamacare” to “Reforming” Medicare?
Maybe it’s true that all but a few truly undecided voters in a few swing states matter. I think Romney picking Ryan merely is another example that he’s pinning all his hopes not on making a positive case for himself, and not even on tearing down Obama, but on anger directed at the person who happens to President. If those voters on election day are unhappy enough about the status quo that they’ll vote Republican, Romney wins.
