What Kills A Skunk, Part Two

We heard the president’s speech. One of the most dismaying things about it, that makes most people recoil–aside from the pure demagoguery on the debt and spending tsunami we face–was that he invited Paul Ryan to come hear it. Paul Ryan, the GOP Budget Committee Chairman, and author of a brave and substantive plan to tackle our fiscal nightmare and wrestle it to the ground.

Why would President Obama do this? Is he clueless of civil behavior?
I think this comment has hit on it, in part:
Why on earth would The One invite him to attend a speech that was designed to demagogue Ryan for electoral purposes?


Because he’s a petty, thin-skinned girlie man who thinks he’s tough. He was trying to intimidate Ryan into backing off. Epic FAIL.

Was that some sort of “if I’m going to kneecap this guy, I ought to at least look him in the eye” concession on Obama’s part?

It’s what kills a skunk:

Part Two.
More to come.
