In 2002, Paul Ryan argued in favor of a stimulus - deficit government spending to create jobs. Is he a hypocrite?

    Suddenly, the new fiscal hawk Paul Ryan once happily rubber stamped every folly GWB pushed through... Stimulis # 1, Medicare Part D, the two wars, Patriot Act etc. Ryan claims to be worried about debt but supported every single one of GWB's deficit ballooning programs. Say one thing, do another . Same old story.

    Ryan is a joke. With all his complaining about a dangerous spending level, he helped to create that dangerous spending. He was a key player. Now he suddenly wants to turn it around?

    I can see how a case could be made for this...His 2002 speech is certainly not what we heard from him yesterday 8/21/12. Having said that, my own spending history has changed radically from when I was fully employed in 2002, to currently--Retired, spending way less now.

    And in 2009 Ryan asked for millions of dollars of the stimulus, even as he complained about it. Then he denied he ever asked for stimulus money.

    In 1996 Obama was for gay marriage. In 2008 is was against gay marriage. In 2012 he was for gay marriage. What's next.

    Romney and Ryan are both hypocrites. They complain about deficits, but they don't really care about deficits. According to the Tax Policy Center, Romney's plan would increase the federal deficit by $600 billion in 2015.

    You don't say. And only 5 months after 9/11.

    You remember that, don't you?

    A recession is a recession. And Ryan asked for millions of dollars of stimulus money in 2009.

    The Delusion of the Left knows no bounds. Facts NEVER get in the way of a good argument.
