    Over the weekend, Paul Ryan said this......................

    Ryan: Don't interfere with legalized medical pot - Yahoo! News

    But then......................yesterday, he pulled a Mittens and flip flopped.................

    Paul Ryan’s campaign immediately retracts candidate’s support for medical marijuana | The Raw Story

    Ryan's flip flop times are getting almost as good as Mittens'.

    But..............I'm also thinking this was actually Ryan trying to pander to CO voters, and being corrected by the Romney campaign.

    Just another example of the lack of coordination within the Romney campaign. I guess that's hard to do amidst all the flip flops.

    Uhhhh--where is the "flip-flop" both believe that marijuana should not be completely legal--but at least they respect STATE'S rights--something Obama doesn't.

    "You'll find that former governors like Romney and Bush do believe in states rights--and do not like the Federal Government getting involved into state business."

    Hey stupid.................Ryan wasn't attacking it, he was speaking FAVORABLY FOR IT as a states rights issue.

    WTF, can't you read?

    You really wanna get on flip-flops and lies?

    If we were in Obama's hope N' change world, unemployment would be 5%.. the debt would be 5 trillion.. Businesses would be hiring.. DOMA would still be defended.. Should I continue?

    Paul Ryan probably has a personal difference with Romney on this issue, but aligns with the campaign platform - as I'm sure Biden does.
