Romney Flip-flops on Ryan Budget Plan

    On Saturday Mitt Romney’s campaign team said:

Gov. Romney applauds Paul Ryan for going in the right direction with his budget, and as president he will be putting together his own plan for cutting the deficit and putting the budget on a path to balance.

   I guess that he had not yet gotten the memo from Ryan’s backers at that time, because that story has now changed to this on Sunday:

TOP ROMNEY ADVISER ED GILLESPIE: Well, as Governor Romney has made clear, if the Romney, sorry, if the Ryan budget had come to his desk as a budget, he would have signed it, of course, and one of the reasons that he chose Congressman Ryan is his willingness to put forward innovative solutions in the budget.

RNC CHAIRMAN REINCE PREIBUS: First of all, he did embrace the Ryan budget. He embraced it.

   That Rush idiot and the Fox News people must have been ringing Romney’s phone off of the hook, or else someone told him that his tax rate would be almost non-existent under the Ryan budget plan.

    Romney can certainly embrace that.

    I said it on Saturday, these two are another Cheney/Bush team, and Ryan would be calling the shots in the White House.

   We cannot allow that to happen in November.
