    Recently Mr. Obama has been publicly labeling the Ryan budget plan as “radical”. While Mr. Obama clearly intended it as a pejorative, a shorthand dismissal of Rep Ryan’s proposal as extreme or wrong-headed, he may unwittingly be according it high praise. But to understand that he’d have to know a little Latin (they must not teach that at Harvard any more). Radical comes from the Latin “radix” meaning root. Thus, if one eradicates something he uproots it. And if a plan is “radical” it attacks a problem at its roots. The Ryan plan does just that: it attacks the catastrophic growth of federal spending at its roots without regard to sacred entitlement cows and political third rails. To do less is sheer casuistry, gum-flapping at the margins, and ill serves the nation and future generations. I’ll take the “radical” Ryan plan over any other (What, you say? There isn’t another plan?). It took political courage to propose it and Mr Ryan should accept the President’s compliment.
