THE RYAN SHUFFLE: LOVED STIMULUS WHEN BUSH WANTED IT

    "WASHINGTON - When Congressman Paul Ryan has been asked the past few years about the value of stimulus to the sagging economy and the nation's jobless, the Wisconsin Republican has dismissed it as meaningless, and dubbed it "sugar-high economics."

    But that's when President Obama is pushing for the spending. When it was President George W. Bush arguing for more stimulus to boost a slow economy in the early 2000s, Ryan's economic analysis was entirely different.

    "What we're trying to accomplish today with the passage of this third stimulus package is to create jobs and help the unemployed," Ryan said, in comments unearthed by MSNBC's "Up with Chris Hayes" and provided to HuffPost. "What we're trying to accomplish is to pass the kinds of legislation that when they've passed in the past have grown the economy and gotten people back to work.""

    Such is the problem with the inconsistency of the republicans. At one point they are certain to have said the opposite of whatever positoin they are arguing, and media archves are extensive.
    More than ever before, it is easier to dredge up something a politician had said in a previous incarnation or context.


    The only way one can avoid that is with a candidate with NO past - which does not exist.

    No matter how consistent I remain, some day I might be faced with a video or audio clip of me in my AIDS advocacy days or my Stroke advocacy.

    Ryan also voted for massive expansions in government spending (including two wars), while Bush was in office. Now Ryan claims to be urgently concerned about the deficit.

    And isn't it amazing how the Republican Sheeple just fall right in line to vote for him without even a second thought ?


    Even more amazing is our Gay Republican friends (the conservaposse) who in their willfull ignorance just keep right on defending these Hypocrites like Ryan.

    The truth is, if McCain were elected President, he would have had no choice but to also pass a big stimulus to curb the growing recession. It's a matter of historical fact that the stimulus was a necessary response to the recession as evident in what Hoover didn't do and what FDR did amidst the Great Depression. And all the Republicans would have been on board and saying as they said before, "deficits don't matter."
