An Ideological Battle That Voters Don’t Want

In picking Rep. Paul Ryan, whose eponymous budget plan has become synonymous with political polarization, Mitt Romney assured an ideological campaign where a debate over the role of government will be front and center. It is a debate the Obama campaign and partisans on both sides are also eager to have. But it’s not a debate that swing voters want.

They aren’t as interested in choosing whether government should be more active or less. They are more interested in simply having it work.

First question is: she knows this how?

But either way, so what?  If more government means less jobs (as it appears to), then it’s a debate that we have to have. Whether anybody “wants” to, in an idle recreational sense, is pretty much irrelevant.
