-- While libertarians have been tamping down on the idea that Paul Ryan is even a small win for the limited-government crowd, Kenney thinks it's a step in the right direction. --
This despite the fact that Ryan's record does not show him to be a "limited government" advocate by even the most liberal interpretation of the concept. Nor is he a "fiscal conservative," as his budget shows, which only slows down the GROWTH but makes no real cuts.
Ron Paul mentioned to Neil Cavuto on Tuesday that the reason Ryan is seen as some sort of "libertarian" budget-slasher is because the Democrats, in their infinite stupidity, exaggerated his fiscal "conservatism" and made him more attractive to conservatives in the GOP.
