Romney Quickly Distances Himself From Ryans Radical Budget

Written by Eric on August 12, 2012.

Romney quickly put some distance between his agenda and Ryan’s radical budget proposals on Sunday as the new team soaked up excitement from partisans in North Carolina and Ryan’s home state of Wisconsin.

He walked a careful line as he campaigned with Ryan by his side in North Carolina, singling out his running mate’s work “to make sure we can save Medicare.” But the presidential candidate never said whether he embraced Ryan’s plan himself. The AP 8/12/2012

Democrats wasted no time responding.

President Barack Obama, attending campaign fundraisers Sunday in Chicago, tagged Ryan as the “ideological leader” of the Republican Party.

“He is a decent man, he is a family man, he is an articulate spokesman for Gov. Romney’s vision but it is a vision that I fundamentally disagree with,” Obama said in his first public comments about Ryan’s selection.

Obama’s senior campaign adviser David Axelrod called it “the Ryan-Romney plan” and pointed out that during the Republican primary, Romney had called Ryan’s budget a “bold and exciting effort” that was “very much needed.”
