Open Thread: Democrats' Astounding Hypocrisy on the Ryan Budget

We knew it was coming. Every person concerned about the nation's impending fiscal collapse knew that any proposal to fix the problem - entitlement spending - would be met by shameless demagoguery and fear-mongering by leading liberals. Minority leader Nancy Pelosi and newly minted DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz did not disappoint. President Obama's own pleas to not play politics with such reform efforts apparently fell on deaf ears. Even Wasserman-Schultz's "civility cop" schtick post-Tucson (so three months ago) hasn't dissuaded her from characterizing Ryan's proposal as a "death trap" for America's seniors (note the media silence compared to Palin's "death panels").

Check out Laura Ingraham blasting their hypocrisy below the break (via Hot Air).

It seems that "Paul Ryan: bogeyman" is shaping up to be the entire 2012 Democratic platform. Do you think it will work?
