Paul Ryan Still Not Making Sense. You Can't Make This Stuff Up
From Taegan Goddard at Political Wire:
Ryan Attacks Obama For Opposing Proposal Ryan Opposed
In an interview with Mike Allen, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) criticized President Obama for failing to adopt the recommendations of the Bipartisan Deficit Commission, of which Ryan was a member:
"I was on the commission. And you know what he did? He didn't accept -- he didn't take one of the big recommendations of the commission, he basically disavowed the commission."
Of course, Ryan himself actually voted against the commission's final report.
Jonathan Chait: "You know what a good follow-up question would be? "So, Paul Ryan you voted against the commission's proposals! How can you attack Obama for failing to endorse policies you voted against?""
