In honor of this, will someone please call me a newbie and tell me to go back to DU?
Any Republican who voted for any of the bailouts is a RINO!
I can see where people may have gotten surprised by the TARP bailout and not completely understood what was going on.
I don’t see any excuse whatever for the Government Motors takeover. None. It was a pure union payoff, and it will end up destroying Detroit’s car companies.
Not so sure why people have recently been championing this guy. He sounds like Kerry trying to explain away a vote (well, I voted for it to prevent what I thought would happen and it happened anyway....HUH?!?!?)
Moreover, he basically admitted that he is playing to the crown by saying, “remember what district I’m in”. TARP, Porkulus and GM Bailout are all easy votes; I don’t care what the lawyers were saying the “commoner” had no problem determining that these were pork sandwiches
In other words, he wants to reinflate the bubble. In my mind, Paul Ryan's cautious answers to the questions have not alleviated the concerns Matt articulated. The representative wants it both ways, and for that reason, he cannot be a credible advocate of the free market. If Ryan does not see the virtue in voting in favor of the free market when given the opportunity, at the very least, the sincerity of his convictions must be questioned.
in other words: the govt screwed up so we have to fix it with tarp and since tarp screwed things up, we need to fix it again with the auto bailout and since that screwed things up, we need another govt program to fix all of those problems and...
“Youve got to remember Obama won my district. Dukakis and Gore won my district. Clinton won my district. So I dont come from, you know, a red area. So I think its important to keep in mind where I come from. I dont hear that here.”
yeah I’m sure all those liberals were jumping and down for TARP and the auto bailouts. /sarc
NO QUARTER for anyone who voted for TARP, signed off on TARP, or had anything at all to do with TARP.
New and Improved CONSERVATIVE RINO!
See what I mean by lemmings and stupidity here ? A member of our party doesn't know what "red" means when he just described his district voted for RED moonbats ?
And this is why I don’t trust Paul Ryan despite so many here on FR Touting him as the Future of the Republican Party in Congress!! He is a useful idiot at best, and fool at worst (at least he doesn’t understand the Constitution).
