I don't recognize the email address who sent this and whoever it was sent to is redacted but the email is just talking about MSM articles covering Paul Ryan. The email had the transcript of a speech he gave at some fundraiser in 2010.
Paul Ryan is describing the GOPe as we know it and doesn't know he's projecting GOPe hypocrisy as if he's not one of them. As we all know...he is one of them.
So, the mistake we made -- the Republicans -- was we committed the greatest sin in politics: the sin of hypocrisy. When you run as fiscal conservatives, when you run on the principles of economic liberty and you don't govern that way, that's hypocrisy. That's what happened to the republicans. Republicans, a lot of us, fought the earmark culture and all those other things, but we lost. Because, the more senior, you know, uh, power guys, they kind of had this belief: we can take this Democratic machine and make it a Republican machine. And what happened was our principles atrophied. We've got to get that back.
