Paul Ryan was confronted last week with evidence he requested stimulus funds for his state, and he first tried to blame it on his staff. Now, Ryan denies he even knew about his own stimulus requests, despite multiple documents which have his signature on them. When asked about it, Ryan tries to breeze right by the question and claim the stimulus is a failure. "I didn’t know about those letters until very recently when they were brought to my attention because they went through our constituent case work system and I take full responsibility for that," Ryan said.
The question remains, how can Paul Ryan campaign against the stimulus and at the same time, request stimulus dollars? And, if Paul Ryan's staff is signing requests for millions in taxpayer dollars without his knowledge, will we get the same lack of oversight if he becomes the VP? Watch it.
Paul Ryan is a LIAR...........always has been, always will be..............

Here is what the democratic TV ad should look like:
Show this lying jerk on the House Floor, when Bush was president back in 2002 touting how “stimulus” works to create jobs.
Then play this clip of him flat out lying his ass off about asking for money from President Obama’s stimulus.
Follow that up with a close up of Ryan’s letters of request revealing that he believed that President Obama’s stimulus would create jobs in Wisconsin in 2009.
It is time to let this lying asshole screw himself with his own damn words.

He's just as big of a waffler and flip-flopper as Mitt is!

It's a failure, but I took the money I didn't know about anyway. Okey dokey Paul.

It's interesting how little Romney and Ryan really know. Ryan didn't know that he was signing for stimulus money? Now Romney doesn't really know how much money is in his accounts and where they're stashed? When we've gone to re-fiance a loan, we had to have 2 years of tax statements, proof of home ownership, insurance, stubs from our employment checks plus other crucial information.

Stimulus was a failure. Stimulus did not create jobs. It was not his intention but he takes full responsibility for what the Case System did. Hmm. I guess voting for two wars and a prescription drug program without having any idea how to pay for them was also done by his Case System. Hmm. I guess the dog ate his homework when he went to school. Couple this with Shamus, Romney's dog, who loved riding on the top of the Romney's car and you have one heck of a team.

Which Paul Ryan signed his name to that stimulus fund request?
The more you know about RYAN - the more you realize he is a handpuppet for Sheldon Adelson, and the Koch brothers.
Ryan has nothing to offer the middle class. Nothing but heartaches.
