Democrats claim to be delighted that Romney has chosen Paul Ryan as his running mate. The attack dogs of the left are already trying to paint Ryan as some kind of radical who will “end Medicare as we know it.”
Considering that Medicare, according to the CBO, will implode in 12 years—maybe sooner—this is an odd line of attack.
