I Thought Ron Paul Was Against Spending...Guess Not...

Because he was one of only four Republicans in the House who requested earmarks despite the GOP moratorium......Yeah, Mr. Fiscal Responsibility says I hate earmarks unless they are mine:
U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) was one of only four House Republicans to break rank from the party and request earmarks despite a Republican Conference earmark moratorium. Paul sent 41 earmark requests totaling $157,093,544 for the 2011 Fiscal Year. His largest single request was $19,500,000 for a naval training ship at the Texas Maritime Academy in Galveston, followed by a $18,126,000 to provide maintenance on the Matagorda Ship Channel.

His excuses are lame, and sound like what a liberal democrat might say, or maybe Mike Turner.
