Today in Headscratchers

Rep. Paul Ryan going after President Obama’s proposed budget:

“It’s a breathtaking budget. This is probably the biggest rewrite or transformation of our federal budget since the New Deal,” said Rep. Paul D. Ryan (R-Wisc.) on Fox News Sunday.

“What surprises me most about this budget, though, is that they would bring this out in the middle of a recession. This budget takes the size of our government in this year to the largest level it has been since World War II,” Ryan added.

Translation: Why would the president propose a budget comparable to the spending programs that got us out of the Great Depression in the middle of a drastic economic downturn?

This question makes my head hurt.
