Lenny McAllister Analysis on “Romney-Ryan 2012” on NPR’s “Tell Me More”

In Audio on August 13, 2012 at 1:45 pm

Republican analyst Lenny McAllister discussed the potential for minorities in America under a Romney-Ryan Administration as part of the lead story on “Tell Me More” on National Public Radio (August 13, 2012)

“Those (Ryan budget) proposals…are supposed to make sure that we can save entitlements (for the future)…and provide opportunities where we have more investment and people have more capital to invest in our challenged areas (in America)…it’s interesting that the president and the Democrats would take this line of attack (on Congressman Paul Ryan) when you look at these 3 things:

#1 – President Obama’s budget (proposals) were getting shot down in a bipartisan effort, repeatedly;

#2 – The Democrats have not produced any time of a budget (proposal) in over 1000 days; and…

#3 – …when President Obama talks about these tax cuts, people conveniently forget that (right) after the 2010 midterm elections, there was a president that signed into law the extension of the Bush tax cuts…it wasn’t President Bush, it was President Obama.”

Catch more of Lenny’s Monday interview with guest host Jacki Lyden on National Public Radio’s “Tell Me More” concerning the presidential race now that Mitt Romney has selected Paul Ryan as his running mate.
