The one thing about selecting Rep. Paul Ryan as his VP nominee that Mitt Romney cannot escape is
that this ties him to the Ryan budget plan. After all, choosing a person whose only real
claim to stature is the proposal to radically change federal spending, cut taxes for the wealthy and to
end Medicare must surely have meant that Mr. Romney embraces those plans. Well,
Romney spokeswoman Sarah Pompei said Saturday that the candidate “applauds” Ryan’s ideas, but intends to issue his own blueprint for reshaping the federal budget. After Romney’s speech introducing Ryan, advisers said the former
governor has no intention of
being handcuffed to all the specifics of Ryan’s plans — though he has said in
the past that he’d sign Ryan’s budget if passed by Congress. Massachusetts
“He has said it moves us in the right direction. He has said that if it’s sent to him, he would sign it. And he has said that he will put forward his own plan,” said one senior Romney adviser. “He is the presidential candidate.”
That's right people. Mr. Romney he stamina, or the total lack of introspection that would produce deep humiliation in any other politician.
It just like winning the 100 and 200 meter dashes in the Olympics. Mr. Romney tops himself and gets another gold medal in 100 meter race in political pandering and backtracking. The crowd goes wide!!!
