Paul Ryan Can Punch Out Crony Capitalism by Obama

Politico has a piece on Paul Ryan underscoring his solid credentials in unmasking The Hawaiian's using taxpayer money to be a venture capitalist with so-called "green" projects:
...Ryan's critique dovetails perfectly with the months of attacks that Mitt Romney, the Republican National Committee and GOP-aligned super PACs have made against Obama's energy programs, especially the one that awarded Solyndra a $535 million loan guarantee.
Romney visited Solyndra's shuttered California headquarters in May, calling it “a symbol of how the president thinks about free enterprise: Free enterprise to the president means taking money from the taxpayers and giving it freely to his friends.”
Like Romney — and matching the current GOP orthodoxy on energy policy — Ryan's budget blueprint advocates opening up new lands and waters to oil and gas drilling while eliminating EPA regulations that conservatives call impediments to energy production.

Read the whole article to see the grudging respect Politico's writers seem to have for Ryan.
