The Vision Thing

Today President Obama spoke welcoming Paul Ryan to the presidential race. If you've been under a rock for the last few days Ryan was selected by Mitt Romney to be his running mate.

The One had this to say:

"He is a decent man, he is a family man, he is an articulate spokesman for Governor Romney’s vision but it is a vision that I fundamentally disagree with.”

Over the weekend I watch recordings of several Romney and Ryan speeches. Together they outlined a vision based on the founding principles of the country. Citing often the language of the Declaration of Independence:

that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

The repeatedly noted that our rights do not come from government, but that government exists to protect our rights. They stressed the importance of individual liberty and individual responsibility and individual success.

They outlined a vision of a resurgent, strong, successful America.

When Obama says this is a vision he fundamentally disagrees with, the clear evidence of his policies indicates he may actually be speaking the truth.
