I keep wondering if I’ll Google the video of Erskine Bowles, the two-time Democratic U.S. Senate candidate from North Carolina and former chief-of-staff for President Bill Clinton, and find that his comments praising GOP VP-pick Paul Ryan’s budget taken out of context. But it hasn’t happened yet.
Bowles said Ryan could “run circles around me” when it comes to arithmetic. He called Ryan’s budget “sensible, straight-forward, honest, serious budget.”
Bowles didn’t particularly endorse the Ryan budget, but he did not that when President Obama came out with his own budget, no one took him seriously, noting that the Senate voted against it 97-0.
