Paul Ryan: A Republican to Watch

Interview with Rush Limbaugh


RUSH: Grab audio sound bite number 13, Mike. We don't have Paul Ryan from Greta last night. We do have him yesterday afternoon, Wall Street Journal, Conversations With, he talked to Paul Gigot. And this is a small sound bite, but Ryan, pay attention to him, brilliant guy. Budget matters, brilliant guy. Gigot said, "Some Democrats criticize you for backtracking on the promise, campaign promise, hundred billion-dollar deficit reduction, can you respond to that charge you're already backtracking, is that true?"

RYAN: If people think we're afraid of cutting a hundred billion dollars they got another thing coming. This is just the beginning. Wait 'til we do our budget resolution; wait 'til we do our fiscal year 2012 spending bills, we're gonna keep going.

RUSH: That's the Paul Ryan that I know. I met Paul Ryan. Paul Ryan was an intern at Empower America when Jack Kemp and Bill Bennett ran that shop in Washington. I flew up there one weekend to meet Bennett for a weekend of revelry and they took me by the office, and Paul Ryan was in there as an intern. He remembered meeting me, he told me that was the first place that we met, and so there he was, interned for Kemp and Bennett, Empower America, Forbes and all that, bammo. And here he is now running the budget for the US Republicans in the Congress, saying, "A hundred billion? Hell. That's just the beginning."
