    He admitted it during the debate, or at least did not refute it when Biden brought it up..

    "For shame! Those letters were private sir!" was the message his facial expression conveyed.

    Ryan did in '04 what every congressman has done from the beginning. However, they were not stimulus funds since those were not available until after Obama became President. You are comparing apples to oranges when trying to link 2004 actions to 2009. It's a real stretch!

    It's nothing more than Ron Paul did all the time. He consistently took government money for his district. Ryan was a Congressman. As a Congressman, it was his job to get money for his district when money became available. He did his job quite well. If Ryan had not responded to the requests of his constituents he would have been a pretty poor Congressman.

    After all, when a defense attorney applies for a job at the prosecutor's office, they don't say "You tried to get criminals off so we can't hire you". When a CEO is replaced at Coca Cola, Pepsi doesn't disqualify him because he once worked for a competitor.

    Ryan didn't lie, and he never once denied applying for money on a constituent's behalf. That's what he was hired to do when he was elected to Congress.

    I'm thinking those letters are going to get a lot of air time in the next few weeks.

    Typical Republican.....While they assail the Stimulous package, they have their hand out for the money. That is the MO for everything they do. It is wrong for everyone else, but it is okay for us.

    The expression conveyed by your posts is that you a fucking idiot.

    Try not making shit up and attributing it to someone who has not said it. Your delusions are not anyone else's reality. Prat.
