BEACH READ­ING

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

A new book is on the way from Rep. Paul Ryan, who is most cer­tainly strik­ing a pres­i­den­tial or at least a vice-pres­i­den­tial pos­ture. “The Way For­ward: Re­new­ing the Amer­i­can Idea” parses the 2012 elec­tion and the Repub­li­can Party’s pesky iden­tity cri­sis. The Wis­con­sin Repub­li­can ul­ti­mately seeks to show “how es­sen­tial con­ser­vatism is for the fu­ture of our na­tion.” Yes, there’s a cri­tique of both the White House and the pro­gres­sive move­ment it­self, “surely steer­ing the coun­try to cer­tain ruin,” the au­thor says.

The book will be in stores in mid-Au­gust. Mr. Ryan will ap­pear with talk ra­dio host Bill Ben­nett at a pub­lic book sign­ing at the Ron­ald Rea­gan Pres­i­den­tial Li­brary in Simi Val­ley, Cal­i­for­nia, later in the month, com­plete with a lec­ture, a sump­tu­ous din­ner and a $75 ticket price.
