Discussing his Paul Ryan piece on NOW with Alex Wagner today, columnist Jonathan Chait noted that the "seemingly genuine" Ryan has sold his plan to the GOP, even though it will be Mitt Romney who will have to defend it throughout the rest of the presidential election. "Paul Ryan's the guy who really figured out what the Republicans are going to do if they can get a hold of this power and Romney is just the one who's executing it," Chait said. "What I see [Ryan] as is a very, very good politician who's created a perception that isn't necessarily perfectly accurate ... in terms of what his plan is and what he is trying to do. I think the reality is pretty different than the way he sold it."
