Paul Ryan's star continues to rise

Seriously, this guy is one of the absolutely crucial Republicans right now. He has been a leader on fiscal responsibility and sound policy for the last year or two, and now he is laying out a case for a Republican recovery:
Republicans can help Washington become part of the solution, not part of the problem. We can do this by pushing to enact tax policies that boost incentives for economic growth and job creation, focus the Fed on price stability, fix our banking system to get credit flowing again, stop reckless spending, and reform our entitlement programs.

Our economy is begging for clear leadership that inspires confidence and hope that the entrepreneurial spirit will flourish again. Our goal must be to offer Americans that leadership.
The GOP has dug its trenches -- now it's time to mount an offense.
