I’m in Washington D.C. for the next two weeks. I’m here doing some work for a client that I am fairly sure provides information and data to the Government (along with other services to other companies). This is my first time in the city and as you can imagine – for a political, history, and economics, junky like me I’m pretty much in heaven.
It’s midnight as I write this and I literally just arrived in D.C. so I haven’t had the time to see anything. I’m headed right to work in the morning so it will probably be tomorrow evening until I actually lay eyes on my first “monument”. I’m sure there will be stories of drunken political speak in some bar at happy hour, quite a few photos of every historical site in D.C. I can find the time to visit, and of course some excellent food consumed. I’ll be sharing soon.
In the mean time – any thoughts on this Paul Ryan guy? I think the Obama camp is going to try to paint him as a far right conservative border lining a radical tea partier; however, I think most conservatives will see him as “on their side”. He will probably go a long way toward uniting the Republican party that I think has been pretty divided in recent history.
At a minimum, Ryan is a much more intelligent political decision than McCain’s pick (Sara Palin) back in 2008. I also think I like Paul Ryan better than Mitt Romney himself (pending more research).
