    A fiscal conservative?


    Also - please stop asking why people are "already" going after him. He's "already" going after Obama, it's par for the course and not out of the ordinary, not even for him!

    “Have any of you met Paul Ryan? We should get him to come to the university. I’m telling you this guy is amazing, uh. I always thought that I was OK with arithmetic, but this guy can run circles around me. And, he is honest. He is straightforward. He is sincere.

    And, the budget that he came forward with is just like Paul Ryan. It is a sensible, straightforward, serious budget and it cut the budget deficit by $4 trillion…just like we did.

    I'm not here to demagogue anyone, I'm wondering if he's SERIOUSLY considered a fiscal conservative, or just now, just 'cuz of the Election....

    Are Fiscal Conservatives of the board for the Stimulus, and things of that nature, like Ryan?

    Growing up in a blue collar middle class family:

    Paul Ryan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And you're right he is brilliant with numbers--here is one of his confrontations with Barack Obama.

    Working at McDonalds, debating Obama and being a Genius with numbers makes him a fiscal conservative in office?

    I'm talking about his voting record.

    I wouldn't say so, either.

    It looks to me that no matter who wins the election, it's like the last 30 or so years - new faces, same behind the scenes secret leaders.

    His record is that of a politician. Not a leader.
