Questions and Answers About The Romney/Ryan Ticket:
1) Does this mean Mitt Romney is adopting the Paul Ryan plan?
· Gov. Romney applauds Paul Ryan for going in the right direction with his budget, and as president he will be putting together his own plan for cutting the deficit and putting the budget on a path to balance.
However, today on the Sunday talking head shows, the message has been altered a bit.
In other words, don't listen to Romney. Listen to US!
David Gillespie, former Republican National Committee chair, told CNN's Candy Crowley on "State of the Union" this morning:
Well, as Governor Romney has made clear, if the Romney, sorry, if the Ryan budget had come to his desk as a budget, he would have signed it, of course, and one of the reasons that he chose Congressman Ryan is his willingness to put forward innovative solutions in the budget.
Current GOP chairman Reince Preibus was even more adamant speaking to Greta Van Sustren on the Romney-Friendly Fox News.
First of all, he did embrace the Ryan budget. He embraced it.
In other words, never mind what Romney said yesterday. He was wrong. He was misquoted. That statement is no longer operative. He was taken out of context. He misstated what he meant to say. What he meant to say is that he loves the Ryan budget, that if he becomes president the Ryan budget will be the law of the land, and if he was a boy and the Ryan budget was a girl he would MARRY the Ryan budget then go into the Mormon Temple in Salt Lake to have that marriage sealed so he and the Ryan budget could live on their own planet and pump out little spirit Ryan budgets to populate his new universe.
THAT's how much he supports the Ryan budget.
Until the next time someone asks, anyway...
