Obama Campaign to Attack Paul Ryan Entitlement Reform

by Chad Peace, published

Well, the first attacks on Mitt Romney's VP pick are out from the Obama campaign are out, and the Obama campaign has targeted the Paul Ryan entitlement reform plan. In a campaign marked by a lack of enthusiasm for and countless errors from the GOP's candidate, this could be exactly the direction the GOP are ready to head.

From an unsolicited Obama campaign e-mail:

Congressman Paul Ryan is best known as the author of a budget so radical The New York Times called it "the most extreme budget plan passed by a House of Congress in modern times." With Mitt Romney's support, Ryan would end Medicare as we know it and slash the investments we need to keep our economy growing -- all while cutting taxes for those at the very top. Over the next few days, Romney's campaign and its allies will tell a very different story about Paul Ryan. Our job is to make sure Americans know the truth about what Romney's choice says about him as a candidate and leader, and to stand with President Obama and Vice President Biden at another major moment in this campaign.
