no, of course not.  

"I never asked for stimulus," Ryan said. "I don't recall… so I really can't comment on it. I opposed the stimulus because it doesn't work, it didn't work."

Two years ago, during an interview on WBZ's NewsRadio he was asked by a caller if he "accepted any money" into his district. Ryan said he did not.

"I'm not one [of those] people who votes for something then writes to the government to ask them to send us money. I did not request any stimulus money," the congressman answered.

might be time to use the word made famous by clemens- misremembered.

So he flip flopped? No wonder Mittens picked him over Rubio. 

Cool so we can elect a failure(Obama/Biden) or a couple of "mis-rememberer's" (Romney/Ryan)

I wonder what Ron Paul and Gary Johnson are up to today?

its basically the anything to smear obama, even if it involves lying or hypocrisy...

effective strategy as his voting base appears to be uneffected by either when it comes to desperate attacks

PR- "Costituent service requests handled similarly to S.S. and V.A. matters. I mishandled that."

Now, let's see how many times BOH misrepresented, err....misremembered  things  and then, never admitted to ever being wrong 

At least PR is familiar with a "budget" concept to start

Yeah, what a joke
Their most potent ammo is attaking the economy/job growth & the debt, yet it was under Bush that the debt started piling up while having the worst job growth rate in modern history. Talk about bs opportunism, lol. Yeah, those same policies & foreign affairs approach are going to put us back on track 
GOP going down again in November - bank it...

In defense of Ryan, he is quoted as saying,

"After having these letters called to my attention I checked into them, and they were treated as constituent service requests in the same way matters involving Social Security or Veterans Affairs are handled,"

"This is why I didn't recall the letters earlier. But they should have been handled differently, and I take responsibility for that."

"Regardless, it's clear that the Obama stimulus did nothing to stimulate the economy, and now the President is asking to do it all over again."...end quote

Romney and Ryan in 012!

The large letters must mean they are getting desperate and when they use the color blue it reminds me of another state in our column.

Don, if i knew Romney and his little clown running mate wouldnt do massive damage to many people, i would almost wish for him to win, just so the right wingers here could get it stuck in a place where the sun dont shine.

They believe that hes going to do so much to better their lives, when the truth is, hes gonna cause a lot more pain for them then Obama can
