Surprise, surprise, GOP vice presidential candidate Tea Party darling Paul Ryan sought stimulus funds as he blasted the program. Usual right wing hypocrisy.

Boston Globe :  “In 2009, as Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) was railing against President Obama’s $787 billion stimulus package as a “wasteful spending spree, he wrote at least four letters to Obama’s secretary of energy asking that millions of dollars from the program be granted to a pair of Wisconsin conservation groups.”

“The documents show that Ryan’s attempts to take advantage of the stimulus funds even after he voted against them was more expansive than previously reported… The additional letters include his praise for the energy program’s aims, and clash with his own budget priorities, which call for curtailing many of the same Department of Energy investments that are designed to spur the growth of green technologies and reduce reliance on fossil fuels.”
