Wonderboy Uses Alinsky's Tactics On Paul Ryan

The Wall Street Journal's Kim Strassel wrote an excellent piece in Friday's edition detailing how Wonderboy is employing his hero, Saul Alinsky's tactics against Congressman Paul Ryan, R-W.

Ryan is one of the most outspoken of Republican House members on the subject of healthcare, and has offered reasonable, effective ideas for health care reform over the past year.

Of course, Wonderboy and his Congressional allies initially ignored Ryan, then cried that the GOP is the party of "no."

Now, hard on the heels of the First Rookie's claim that he'll listen to any new ideas on health care, he has, according to Strassel, fingered Ryan.

Then set his attack dogs after the Republican.

The president's budget director weighed in to criticize Ryan's plan, while ignoring questions about Wonderboy's own scheme. Democratic House members chimed in, as if on cue.

Strassel views all of this, correctly, through the lens of classic Alinsky doctrine,

"Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it."

The Democrats in Washington aren't interested in any new or other ideas on health care, aside from their own monstrosity.

And their recent actions, from Wonderboy to his minions, bears this out.
