Paul Ryan is a hypocrite. I don't know what you think was a breath of fresh air about him.
He criticized the administration for not addressing the housing crisis, but neither he nor Romney has said what they would do, or if they would even do anything.
He criticized Obama for not helping small businesses and job creation, but he mentioned none of their plans other than "tax fairness and regulatory reform", which is pretty vague if you ask me.
He criticized "Obamacare" for having a mandate, saying it has no place in a free country. Romney's healthcare overhaul in Mass contained the same type of mandate.
Quote from Ryan: "$716 billion funneled out of Medicare by President Obama. An obligation we have to our parents and grandparents is being sacrificed, all to pay for a new entitlement we didn't even ask for." The budget passed by house repubs, and that Paul Ryan WROTE, keeps the cuts made by obamacare and addes around $200 billion more.
This is one of my favorites. Paul Ryan criticized Obama for ignoring the debt commissions recommendation, saying that the commission brought him an urgent report that he ignored. First off, it wasn't an official report from the commission because too many of them disagreed with it. One of those people that wouldn't sign off on the report, Paul Ryan.
Breath of fresh air? I didn't see that. Sounded like good ole politics to me.
I wish there would have been a floor fight with Ron Paul's delegates. I really did like him. And now the party passed rules making it harder for candidates like him to succeed.
