Paul Ryan vs. Obama!

Bill Kristol had high praise for Paul Ryan on Monday's edition of Special Report with Bret Baier. He noted that Ryan and Obama's roles have been switched since Obama gave his State of the Union address and Ryan gave the Republican response.

Why? Kristol put Ryan first because Ryan has "laid the groundwork for the battle". Kristol also pointed out that Ryan has laid out "a plausible, serious and substantive budget for the future". Ryan has been able to put Obama on the defensive, and now Obama is having to go back to the drawing board to come up with another plan. As columnist E. Thomas McClanahan asks, Are the Democrats as serious as Paul Ryan on cutting the budget?

Kristol also mentions a Ryan/Rubio 2012 ticket. Apparently, he mentioned it awhile ago as a stab in the dark and got a lot of good feedback. I would say he** yes, have you seen what else is out there? The thought of picking from the leftovers from 2008 (Huckabee, Romney and Pawlenty), makes me nauseous.
