Skip to comments.Paul Ryan Defended Stimulus In 2002
Posted on 08/19/2012 8:30:28 AM PDT by xlib
The latest line of attack from the left against Ryan. He needs to own it, and agree it was the wrong thing to do; chalk it up to a youngster's misguided party loyalty. The more R&R distance themselves from Bush's Keynesian flights of fancy the better.
“He needs to own it, and agree it was the wrong thing to do; “
He already has.
It’s suppose to be a referendum on Obama (he’s the incumbent).
Looks like Obama has managed to turn the tables.
One would think the dems are the minority party and Romney’s running for re-election.
Stimulus in 2002 was tax cuts. Stimulus in 2009 was trillions in spending. I fail to see the attack.
why would you post edited garabge from crazy gay leftists on msdnc here ????
Who ARE YOU WORKING FOR HERE ????
i know the answer troll
the poster is a paul bot .
Thanks for posting that!
Your evidence free assumption is worth about the effort that went into it. I posted the story because I’m a big fan of Ryan and I think the claim needs to be defended. Some people need to get a grip.
It would be easier if we wouldn’t nominate people with indefensible voting records. He’ll just have to not waffle on the explanations.
your mADE THAT POINT QUITE CLEAR WITH NO COMMENT ATTACHED to the post .
this crap is msdnc edited nonsense from a gay radical.
you had no comment attached to a heavily edited clip from gay radical at msdnc
And the stimulus in 2002 gave us 4.5% unemployment, while the stimulus in 2009 allowed unemployment to go over 8%, from where it has never been below since.
Actually, that was my comment. I tried to post an excerpt, but my comment ended up in the wrong field. When I tried to correct it, I got a blank screen, then discovered the post had already appeared. Again, some people need to lighten up.
The 2002 stimulus was a massive tax cut. Nice try O-bot but you score an epic fail with this garbage post.
Quack, Waddle - more support from the "Fithcally Conthervative" Dialectiic Rainbow RINOratocracy...
Gay Republican Groups Praise Anti-Gay Paul Ryan As Romney VP Choice

Both national gay GOP organizations, the Log Cabin Republicans and GOProud this morning praised Mitt Romneys choice of the very anti-gay Paul Ryan as the Republican vice presidential nominee. READ: Romney: Paul Ryan Will Be My VP (Or, Everything You Wanted To Know But Were Afraid To Ask) The selection of Paul Ryan is a bold and inspired pick. Paul Ryan has been the architect of policies that would benefit all Americans, especially gay Americans, Jimmy LaSalvia, GOProud Executive Director announced in a statement that called Ryan a bold and inspired pick.
=====================Myth: What happens now?Scott Toomey: Well, now, uh, Ken Mehlman, R. Clarke Cooper, Meghan McCain, Mary Cheney and I wait until nightfall, and then leap out of the Fithcally Conthervative log cabin, taking The Party(tm) by surprise -- not only by surprise, but totally unarmed!Myth: Who leaps out?Scott Toomey: Uh, Ken Mehlman, R. Clarke Cooper, Meghan McCain, Mary Cheney and I. Uh, leap out of the log cabin, uh and uh....Myth: Oh....Scott Toomey: Oh.... Um, l-look, if we built this large wooden Rhinocerous -- [twong]ALL: Run away! Run away! Run away! Run away! [splat]
Ryan learned from his vote and at least he didn’t vote present. Where’s the old Obama history? Oh, my there isn’t one.
I tried to find where Ryan addressed this before I posted. Do you have a link?
Nope. Saw him say it on tv.
People need to keep in mind the context of what was going down in 2002.
The events of 9-11 were estimated to have taken a trillion dollars plus out of the economy.
Debt to GDP ratio was then 50-60%. (about 102% now and going up)
Tax cuts were hardly wild-eyed Keynesianism.
There is nothing Ryan has done that would be anyway near as bad as obama/bidens actions/inactions over the last four years and their separate careers before that.
I’m voting for Ryan.
Stimulus in 2002 was tax cuts. Stimulus in 2009 was trillions in spending.
If liberals want to portray Romney and Ryan as right-wing extremists, they really should give up pointing out votes that make them look more moderate. They are in essence making the case for Independents to vote Romney-Ryan in 2012.
The effects on the economy from 9/11 were unprecedented...
anything Bush tried would be a gamble...
The fact that he and congress did try to save our country from financial disaster was a gutsy move...
Did Ryan say anything on the house floor before the vote to explain his support of the stimulus ???
WHAT STIMULUS in 2002???
Obama was busy voting ‘present’ in Illinois.
