Top of the morning

[1]It turns out that Rep. Paul Ryan was one of those members of Congress blasting the stimulus package [2] in public and trying to get some of the money for his district in private.

It’s also interesting that he is cast as a small government deficit hawk when his budget would actually increase the deficit [3], not mention that he voted for TARP [4], the bailout of the auto industry, and George Bush’s prescription drug program for Medicare, you know the program he now wants to dismantle.

Maybe it’s just me, but that seems like an odd resume for true fiscal conservative.
