"This isn't a grand bargain. For that, we need a complete rethinking of government's approach to helping the most vulnerable, and a complete rethinking of government's approach to health care. But right now, we need to find common ground. We need to open the federal government. We need to pay our bills today—and make sure we can pay our bills tomorrow. So let's negotiate an agreement to make modest reforms to entitlement programs and the tax code."

Incredible! Another Republican that gets it! And his party's nominee for VP no less!

A pretty good example of the state of affairs when someone said, " Wow, Paul Ryan intelligent." Take your favorite 100 legislators and Ryan has forgotten more about the budget and the fisc than they know collectively.

Maybe it would have been in his best interest to remember some of it.

I said he said something intelligent.

He's STILL demanding concessions in order to raise the debt ceiling. No concessions, "Fk you America."

Maybe.  I read it as a progression - open the federal government, raise the debt ceiling, and negotiate modest reforms, in that order.  Maybe that's not what he meant.
