Paul Ryan rejects the narrative being pushed by the liberal media that his proposal to reform Medicare is toxic for the Republican Party. “Demagoguery can work for a short period of time, but it doesn’t last because the truth comes out,” he told Human Events. “Time is on our side. Truth and the facts are on our side, and all we have to do is get the truth out there.”So far, it seems, the GOP has done a good job of preaching to the choir through conservative oriented Web sites and publications. But I haven't seen any significant attempt by the GOP to publicize their proposals in the popular media. The press, with its decidedly leftist bias can't be relied upon to do that. So, it is up to the GOP and their candidates/officeholders to do it. The question is: Will they?
