    If the lamestream media is liberal, than why is it that they all keep calling Paul Ryan a "fiscal conservative"?

    The Republican base apparently loves the guy, but are they aware of his record?

    And how can he represent the Tea Party with that record?

    Funny, but Ryan didn't seem to care too much about spending when he put his name on the two massive Bush Tax Cuts, without paying for them; or the massive Medicare Part D expansion, without paying for them; or the two forever-wars that the previous administration could not complete themselves in two terms, again, not paid for; or the Department of Homeland Security, which was more unpaid for bloat.

    Then he put his name on the bailout and now we find out that he lobbied for Obama Stimulus money while voting against the Obama Stimulus, which is so fucking terribly ironic. His district created jobs because of the Obama Stimulus.

    And now he proposes over $4 trillion in deeper tax cuts aimed at the rich, but doesn't say how he'll pay for them.

    He wants to increase the military budget, doesn't say how he'll pay for it.

    Does he think turning Medicare into a coupon system will pay for ALL the shit he's for spending?

    The more we get to know this guy, the more troubling it gets.

    He is not a serious person with that ridiculously irresponsible record.

    "real" conservatives are long gone for the most part. Today's GOP/teabaggers are all about their fascist agenda of massive spending, huge government, bankrolling the rich while destroying the middle class, attacks on freedom, and crapping all over the constitution.

    That is today's definition of a "fiscal conservative"

    He's a big Government spender, and his record is public for anyone who wishes to see it.

    Rhetoric over record, 2012.

    Ron Paul is probably the only Fiscal Conservative in Washington.

    His obvious point is that the campaign is trying to paint him as a fiscal conservative, while he's not.

    You really haven't heard?

    He is a career politician. The only steady job he has held is in politics.

    But the most important thing he has an R beside his name!
