Ryan’s lying to public doubles as courage for pundits


Ezra Klein is correct in pointing out that Bill Clinton’s plan is not Paul Ryan’s plan and that Bill Clinton at no time endorsed Ryan’s plan. After all that, Bill Clinton’s whisperings of support and offering of aid to Paul Ryan will be all the rage today and pundits will ignore the facts and go back to calling Ryan’s no defense spending cut, no tax increase budget plan bold and courageous because they believe addressing the deficit and nation building are more important than addressing unemployment and infrastructure.
