Obama Super PAC Waiting To Unload On Mitt Romney's Embrace Of Paul Ryan Budget
Source: Huffington Post
...Begala declined to comment on when Priorities USA plans to unleash their criticisms of the Ryan budget. They are most likely waiting to see if Romney picks Ryan as his running mate, in which case those attacks could be coming sooner than later.
Super PACs like Priorities USA are forbidden by law from coordinating their activities with the Obama campaign. So far this year, the group has worked to reinforce the Obama campaign's attacks on Romney's private equity career at Bain Capital.
Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt declined to preview strategic planning for the rest of the campaign, but said as far as they are concerned, Romney already is running on the Ryan budget.
"Governor Romney has not only fully embraced the Ryan budget, but he has introduced a budget plan that is a carbon copy -- it makes seniors pay thousands of dollars more each year for their health care and severe cuts to programs essential to the middle class in order to pay for tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires," LaBolt said. "Mitt Romney is campaigning on the flawed assumption that we can just cut our way to prosperity."

2. What's the betting that Ryan will be named as Mitt's VP?
Someone has got to at least try and defend an INSANE budget plan like his.
If and when Ryan is named, might be next week, we can really go to town on his insanity.
