The dumbest Ryan quote yet: "We would have fixed our fiscal mess under Bill Clinton"

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The nation’s most pressing fiscal issues would likely have been solved if Bill Clinton were president, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Sunday in a swipe at President Obama

Look, if we had Clinton presidency, if we had Erskine Bowles, chief of staff of the White House or president of the United States, I think we would have fixed this fiscal mess by now. That’s not the kind of presidency we’re dealing with right now,” Ryan said on NBC News’s “Meet The Press.”

Hey Lyin', just HOW did Clinton fix the budget mess left by your fellow republicans Reagan and BushI???? Hmmmmmm? Perhaps by RAISING TAXES WITHOUT A SINGLE REPUBLICAN VOTE IN THE HOUSE.

Now, if you want to fix things in a similar fashion, I would suggest a bunch of you t-bagging scum resign, let some democrats take over so that we can repeat the process. I am sure Obama would be happy to oblige!

1. My thought was,

Well, we did fix it and then once again you bunch of GOP knuckleheads screwed it up. So are you talking about Mr. Ryan?

2. The Cons spent like drunken sailors during the W years.

On two unwinnable wars we're still fighting. On tax cuts for the über wealthy scumbags. On contract after contract for corrupt military contractors. Someone's got to pay for this shit.

3. I guess he is admitting he is a part of the failure, he has been in the House at this time

I do have something to be thankful, the Democrats had a good candidate and for all the voters and workers who prevented Romney/Ryan getting elected. YEA

4. Pretty clever of George W. Bush's biggest cheerleader.

The best Ryan can do is try to draw comparisons between Democratic presidents, because he was in the front row fainting and gushing over George W. Bush's plans to privatize Social Security.

5. I think that the Post got it wrong.

Ryan was referring to Hillary, not Bill. It's the wrong Clinton.

Paul Ryan Heaps Praise On Hillary: If She Were President, ‘We’d Have Fixed This Fiscal Mess By Now’

Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press this afternoon, former GOP vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) praised Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and lamented that she did not win the presidency in 2008, as he believes that would lead to a better chance for deficit reduction today than under President Obama.

Host David Gregory showed Rep. Ryan video of Sec. Clinton speaking with him at the inaugural luncheon, which Ryan characterized as “chumming it up” over a variety of personal topics.

The congressman then praised Clinton: “Look, if we had a Clinton presidency, if we had Erskine Bowles as Chief of Staff of the White House or President of the United States, I think we would have fixed this fiscal mess by now. That’s not the kind of presidency we’re dealing with right now.”

7. Hillary was the MOST DIVISIVE POLITICIAN

in history up until these jackasses realized Barrack Obama was the presumptive candidate in 2008, then they all of a sudden were loving themselves some Hill after a decade and a half of the most merciless and harsh attacks on her.

I used to want to scream, I heard it 1,000 times, a republican babbling in the "liberal media" about how DIVISIVE Hillary Clinton was.

They spent 15 years going mental over her for every possible thing they could come up with about her, then point to themselves as being jackasses as proof that it was HER fault.

Part of the reason I supported Barrack Obama was that he was such an even tempered person and so likeable, that while of course they would be mean shits, it might be a LITTLE less worse than if it were Hillary, who they had such a long history of hating.

Somehow, they have been just as bad with him as Bill and her.

It won't matter WHO the F it is, they will negatively frame and destroy any democrat - Gore, Dean, Kerry, Pelosi ...

If it had been Hillary the last four years, and who had won reelection last November, this jackass would be saying the same thing.

Just insert the name of the democrat into the line and babble it.

8. I don't disagree with your assessment.

Other than the part about supporting Obama in 2008, I supported Hillary.

My point is that every other publication that I read said that Ryan was referring to Hillary, not Bill. The WP assumed that it was Bill.

Here's one more article on the subject.

9. Then he is still dreaming

He is hoping that Catfood Commissioner Bowles would magically convince a president Hillary Clinton to eviscerate Social Security and Medicare, taking all the blame, while giving the rich more tax cuts and handing the Repubs the campaign issue they would need to take back the Senate and Presidency. I don't think Hillary would be so accommodating.....

10. He probably knows that already.

He's just trying to muddy the water, that's all.

6. Obama could do the same thing if Eddie Munster over there'd let him

If we had a Clinton presidency we'd be just as screwn. The House GOP has got to be stopped before the recovery starts.

11. Does he mean Bill Clinton?

The guy the GOP impeached for the crime of being a Democrat?
