Let's do a quick inventory of all the people that Republicans are trying their best to alienate in their quest for a permanent majority: women, black people, brown people, immigrants, poor people, middle class people and sick people.
Oh, and I guess we can now add old people to the list…
Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-Wis.) political group went on the attack Monday against AARP, calling one of the most powerful lobbies a "left-leaning pressure group."
Ryan's Prosperity PAC sought to push back on attacks by AARP against the House Budget Committee chairman's 2012 budget, specifically its proposed changes to Medicare… AARP launched ads last week warning against "harmful cuts" to Medicare and Social Security it said Republicans favored.
In case you're unaware, "left-leaning pressure group" in conservative parlance is just, like, one step down from "militant terrorist organization."
So, yeah. Harsh.
