Ed Rendell: Paul Ryan 'A Total Wuss'
Former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell joined HuffPost Live Tuesday to discuss America's need for gutsier leaders, and cited former Republican Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan as a classic example of a "wussy" politician.
Rendell told HuffPost Live host Sacks that Ryan had "denied during the campaign that he ever wrote and asked for stimulus funds" while railing again President Obama's stimulus program.
In fact, Ryan had not just requested funds, but in his letter even stated that the funds would help create jobs in his district.
"Well, duh, Paul, that's what the whole point of the stimulus was," an exasperated Rendell said.

2. Another example of those who complain about spending and brings home lots of bacon is Ron Paul.
Ron Paul complains about the spending and having smaller government but made sure he tacked on earmarks to bills he knew was going to pass and then vote against the bill showing him as voting against the spending but he took the bacon home with him. There are a lot of the same going on, they spend and then cut taxes and tell everyone we have a spending problem and not a revenue problem. Good for Governor Rendell, you have to tell it like it is.
