…in this NRO piece:
“Democrats are going to try to make the 2012 House elections a referendum on ‘Paul Ryan’s plan to end Medicare,’ which all but a small handful of Republicans voted for,” says Larry Sabato, a political analyst at the University of Virginia. “NY-26 has too many complicating factors for this to fairly be considered a referendum on Ryan, but inevitably that is how many will interpret the election.”
Neither Sabato in his quote nor Costa in his piece point out that the whole “referendum of Ryan” meme is totally dependent on a Corwin loss. If she wins “Paul Ryan referendum” line will be gone with the wind and the media will simply spin it as simply the story of the Republicans holding a seat they’ve held forever.
That might be hard since as Stacy Reports the democrat plan is all Ryan plan all the time,, but have no fear the democrats are certainly capable of altering their view of reality on a whim.
