In several respects, Paul Ryan already is showing himself to be a perfect fit for the Republican presidential ticket. He seems to be as adept as Mitt Romney at talking out of both sides of his mouth and peddling prevarications.
Take, for example, the issue of China manipulating its currency to the detriment of U.S. trade interests. Ryan accuses President Obama of not taking a hard line with China on such matters. But Ryan himself has consistently opposed measures to crack down on China.
And then there’s the issue of the Stimulus Bill. Ryan voted against the measure but then actively sought to bring some of the benefits to his district on grounds that they would spur job growth. Such hypocrisy was not uncommon, but Ryan flatly lied about having lobbied for stimulus money.
There’s more HERE about these and other examples of Ryan’s emulation of Romney’s worst traits.
