This time she finished the run in under 45 minutes. She was upset by proposals to cut state funding to social welfare programs, such as homeless shelters and mental health agencies. During an interview, she reflected on her view of the proper perspective of budget cuts: Often those who cloak themselves in a cape of religiosity happen to be some who are the biggest cutters. Now, some of that can balance out.

To educated liberals of almost any description, Santorum is an abomination. With his seven kids, his Jaycee fashion code, his nineteen-seventies colonial MacMansion in northern Virginia, his irony bypass, he seems to delight in outraging self-styled urban sophisticates: For a bit of video about Mr.

Congressman Ryan joins me now. Thanks for spending some time as you get ready for the big speech, Congressman. Hey, you bet, Hugh. How are you doing today? Yeah, that guy is a great thinker. He seems to delight in outraging self-styled urban sophisticates, the sort of folks who buy organic milk, watch the Daily Show and read the New York Times, and the New Yorker, of course.
He was the New York Post writer. But he is, it must be conceded, consistent. He is, alas, who he is. I listened to his, I think he was in St. Louis the night of the other caucuses where he gave his…I think he gave a great speech. I mean, I thought it was unifying, I thought it was inclusive, I thought he was great giving a passionate defense of the Constitution and the right to religious freedom. You know, a recitation of Constitutional principles apparently can be offensive to people.
Well, my main message is we cannot just win and run a campaign, and have an election just by running against Barack Obama, and just trying to win this thing by default, you know, running against the economy or whatever. This is not your garden variety presidential election. The country is in a very precarious moment and spot right now, and we are about to choose a trajectory for our nation that will last at least a generation. And I would say that the President is on the outside of the American mainstream.
He is not in the thinking of most Americans.
The government does give us rights, like health care. But here is a story or a case where and which this new government-given right trumps a Constitutional right, a natural right, our right to religious freedom. And whenever those two rights collide, in this case, the government trumps it. The new right trumps it.

And so the provider of our new rights, the government, they decide these things. And whoever is in power makes these decisions. Instead, those in power need to decide how our lives are lived, how are destinies are shaped, how these rights that are given to us by government are delivered to us, how we exercise them.
And so I would just simply say we owe it to the country to show how this philosophy really is different than the American idea, how the choice we have before us is to reclaim the American idea, the rights come from nature and God, we have a prosperous society, upward mobility, people can make the most of their lives, to shape their destinies, or whether we want to go down this path that the President is taking us on, which is really an abandonment of what I would call the American idea, which is more of a European social democracy.
Now Congressman, I know you have personal experience from the President browbeating you, to the reaction to your budget plan. I know you have personal experience with the vitriol of the left. But the Occupy movement is one face of it. These sorts of attacks on Santorum from the New Yorker is another face.
I hope everyone listens to it when you publish it. I hope everyone listens to the speech. But do you think that that audience, or America generally, and in fact, does Paul Ryan know how hard it is going to be to do what you say needs to be done, and with which I agree?
