Barack Obama, nation's scolder in chief, has been true to form this week

by The Oklahoman Editorial Board Published: April 5, 2012

The president's speech to news execs on Tuesday was classic Obama: Republicans through their budget plan are out to destroy everyday Americans and their way of life — senior citizens, college students, those with disabilities, you name it — Republicans won't give an inch to try to get things done, Ronald Reagan wouldn't recognize the Republican Party today, Republicans this, Republicans that. What he never wants to talk about, with good reason, are his policies that have produced an exploding federal deficit and done little to get the economy turned around.

Ryan's budget plan isn't perfect, but it is serious. Unlike anything Obama has proffered while in office, it addresses some of this country's greatest fiscal challenges including Medicare reform. Romney, moving closer to the GOP nomination after his victory Tuesday night in Ryan's home state, was wise to embrace the plan regardless of his choice of words.
