Presidential Elections 2012 - #4135 - VIDEO: Mitt Romney Uses White Board to Explain Medicare - Townhall (2) Paul Ryan to Campaign With His 80- Year Old Mother - Townhall

As I suggested this week, showcasing Ryan's mom is one of the most potent tools Republicans have to beat back Democrat disinformation on the GOP reform plan to save Medicare. If they can effectively neutralize the Left's ongoing demagoguery, they'll have more breathing room to land blows on offense.
