John Kerry: “I Actually Did Vote for the $87 Billion, Before I voted Against It”

Paul Ryan: I voted for the TARP bailout, but I was against it.*

*Long, politispeak version from the article:

“I voted for the House bill, which was to use the Energy Department money instead of using TARP money. That bill didn’t pass the Senate and therefore, President Bush — under his watch, to be fair — used TARP to bail out the auto companies, something I very much opposed. And I tried to prevent it — it unfortunately occurred — and now we’re still going to be out of taxpayer dollars as a result of this.”
