Ryan Interview

MSM journalists take note-- the old retired guy from Faux News just put you all to shame.  Watch the Hume-Ryan interview if you want to see a professional at work, asking pointed questions, driving follow-ups to counter spin and maintaining a reporter's skepticism throughout.

Here's the interview.

Ryan came across young and wonkish, pretty much like always, but didn't fold when challenged, however some of his answers were either confusing or lacking in detail and caused Hume to keep digging.  The AP seized on one regarding the loopholes a Romney administration might abolish...
“that is something that we think we should do in the light of day, through Congress.”
..and that's nice spin but this is a campaign--people are going to demand specifics, especially from a guy known for facts and details. 

Overall a decent interview for a first out.  Romney-Ryan are really staking a claim on the Medicare issue and it will keep Obama on defense (via the slash and burn Chicago style scorched earth politics of personal destruction).  

As to the "Cheney test", well, apparently Darth had this one predicted.
