I'd vote for 2002 Paul Ryan.
Paul Ryan Support Of Stimulus - Business Insider
And, if you search you can find a lot of videos of Obama saying that he will get rid of pork and lobbyists and provide transparency in government. How did that work out?

Hmmm...that's gonna be harder to erase than a white board.
Politicians say what they think will get them ahead. Soon the ads will be running with Obama basically saying that if he can not cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term then he does not deserve a second.
Kind of hard to do that when Republicans actually sabotage government spending cuts just because Democrats were for it:

Neither Romney nor Ryan are principled. They are pure opportunists, and will say whatever needs to be said to get elected. Relative to them, Obama is principled and consistent in his views. Of course, Obama will lose the unprincipled vote, but he never had much support among Republicans anyway.
That's funny because he did not make any progress towards lowering the deficit when he had a super-majority. Did he stop the Bush tax cuts for the rich or did he extend them? All the things he says he wanted to do but could not do he could have done if he wanted.
Obama is great at blaming others, maybe he should try some of that personal responsibility stuff that he was throwing out there when pushing Obamacare.
3.5 years of excuses is all he has.
Man, the NEWBIES are coming out of the woodwork lately.
Welcome Hokus Phokus!
Well of COURSE they're not principled....they're REPUBLICANS!
You're strange one, Mr Patters.
