Ryan sought stimulus funds while decrying program

There are 110 comments on the bostonglobe.com story from Aug 17, 2012, titled Ryan sought stimulus funds while decrying program . In it, bostonglobe.com reports that:

In 2009, as Rep. Paul D. Ryan was railing against President Obama's $787 billion stimulus package as a "wasteful spending spree," he wrote at least four letters to Obama's secretary of energy asking that millions of dollars from the program be granted to a pair of Wisconsin conservation groups, according to documents obtained by the Globe.

The advocacy appeared to pay off; both groups were awarded the economic recovery funds -- one receiving a $20 million grant to help thousands of local businesses and homes improve their energy efficiency, agency documents show. Ryanís letters to the energy secretary praising the energy initiatives as he sought a portion of the funding are in sharp contrast to the House Budget Committee chairmanís image as a Tea Party favorite adamantly opposed to federal spending on such programs.

The wasteful spending spree that Ryan was talking about was the giving of stimulus funds to the obamanation's crony reelection campaign donors instead of putting the stimulus funds in bona fide programs that might actually stimulate the economy.

Typical LEFTY playing with the facts.

You can vote againist a large expenditure but once the money is in the hopper and to be divied up among the states one should see that their state gets a piece of the pie.

For instance if you voter againist an overly expensive highway bill would you then exclude your state from any part of it ? Duh !

Just Mr_Bill muckracking as usual over nothing but the way business is done.

That is not true. He has cancelled increases in payments to healthcare providers that were to be phased in over the next ten years. There are no cuts in medicare coverage. Don't believe every campaign commercial you see.

To make Obamaloney:
Just mix equal parts of brainwashed Imperialist Democrat, Soviet Style Communism, and outright, Bold-Faced Lies in a Grinder.
Add copious amounts of piss and vinegar, Salt and Pepper(of course) and pack tightly into the Main Stream Media.
It is best served Cold and is usually Stuffed down one's throat. You find out what it tastes like after you eat it.
This is one of Nancy Pelosi's favorite dishes.
***Optional...Add Indonesian Dog Meat for "Obamaloney ala Barry"

Yeah, but to badmouth the stimulus program as much and as often as Ryan did and then send out begging letters with his signature on them asking for stimulus moneys, is really hypocritical.

Besides, he lied about not doing it.

Right. Ryan can badmouth the stimulus program to appease the
white-trash, tea-party element in the GOP, and then send out numerous letters with his signature on them begging for money for his constituency and yet deny he's a hypocrite.

Besides, he lied about not sending out the letters.

So, that makes Ryan a liar and a hypocrite.

Nice attempt at spin, but it ends up being nothing but a partisan justifcation of Ryan's hypocrisy. Typical of the scum your party sends to Congress at your behest and with your votes.

Well your Mr Ryan is no King Solomon.
Rather, Ryan strongly resembles Pharaoh.

True,
But He is a conservative. So when he lies, it is ONLY for the betterment of America.
When a liberal lies it is to align himself to take away all your guns.
See the difference?
Conservative lies are good for America
Liberal lies cause death and pain.
