Just to be clear: Ryan's delay as to a budget proposal has a Democrat Congress as an example.

Paul Ryan Is Not Running for President _ or Passing a Budget

 House Speaker Paul Ryan's national stature is such that he had to call a news conference to deny he wants to be president. Back on Capitol Hill, he's about to blow through a statutory deadline to pass an annual budget, a major embarrassment for him and House Republicans.
Under the government's arcane budget law, the House is supposed to produce a budget by this Friday, April 15. But a tea party revolt over Ryan's embrace of last year's bipartisan deal with President Barack Obama to increase spending has left him well short of the votes he needs.
"It would appear that we're not going to have a budget," the No. 2 House Democrat, Steny Hoyer of Maryland, told reporters Tuesday. "They made it a big deal. Hypocrisy is part of it," he added. "They're in deep disarray."
House Republicans met the budget deadline each of the five years they controlled the House under the leadership of John Boehner, who was ousted as speaker last fall under conservative pressure. Ryan himself, his party's 2012 vice presidential nominee, chaired the House Budget Committee for much of that time and guided the "Ryan Budget" that slashed entitlement spending. But he also cut a deal with Senate Democrats and the White House that enhanced his profile as a charismatic, policy-focused conservative . . . . . . . . .   (source:  ABC News, here). 

Editor's notes:  Two points about this news story:  first,  For the first five years of the Obama Administration,  it was a Harry Reid Senate that refused to pass a budget.  First time in American history we refused to budget our spending   . . . . .   all without a meaningful criticism from the Marxist Media.To criticize Paul Ryan for a failure that was Democrat Policy for 5 stinking years,  is nuts.  But,  so much for the do nothing Left. 

More than this,  what we have here,  is another example of a failed policy coming from the teaparty side of the aisle.   When political principle becomes an intractable process,  it is the "party politic"  that needs attention (read "correction"). The problem with the far far Right is exemplified in this news story.  Last year, Ryan allowed for the passage of a large spending bill and the far far Right used that circumstance to tarnish Ryan's reputation as it (the far far Right) exercised its ability to enforce its uncompromising agenda.  In the end,  the GOP and its teaparty constituency missed another opportunity to lead the nation,  choosing,  rather,  to demonize its own leadership for the sake of doing   . . . . . . . . . . . . ah   . . . . . . . . . ..  nothing.    Look,  when the car has run out of gas,  you don't remain in the car and complain that "this should not have happened." 

Understand this:  Obama has won everyone of these budget battles,  over the years, including the Ted Cruz filibuster effort at bringing sanity to the process.  It is one thing to being "principled," it is another to being so uncompromising in that effort, that a "principled defeat" is your only reality.  Ted Cruz was right in his opposition,  but wrong to allow the process to work against his own efforts.  Understand that in politics,  it is always wrong to allow the other side an ultimate or comprehensive victory under the banner of a "principled stance."  In the end,  the Conservatives' notion that "we fight to the bitter end,"  ignores the power of an opposition president.  There are times when principle matters.  But, in the end,  the populace opinion of your agenda goes up in smoke.  Ever heard of "winning the battle and losing the war?"  Apparently,  that is not a teaparty memory any more.  As much as we despise the socialist ideologue in our White House,  you can't win when the "balance of power" gives him ability to make you look like you are the idiot,  instead of him.   

Remember the Alamo?  I do.  In the end, the good guys died.  

What is most frustrating for this old conservative,  is the fact that "we" may lose yet another national election,  this time because we have destroyed the only political pathway (talking about the GOP) to a national victory.  How stupid is that ?
