Seriously? Again?Mitt Romney's campaign, Saturday:
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.Apparently the same forces that bullied Romney into picking Ryan as his running mate have let Romney know that they meant it. Mitt Romney's surrogates, today:
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.
Either all of those people who were leaning on him to pick Ryan lit up the phone to set him straight, or he found out that his tax rate under the Ryan budget would be 0.82 percent. Now that, Romney can embrace.
