Flip-flop Wamp: Tennessee Republican Decries Stimulus, Touts the Money

Like a lot of conservative Republican lawmakers (several Oklahomans come to mind), Tennessee Rep. Zack Wamp has two positions on the federal stimulus.

These two positions are completely contradictory, of course.

Wamp, a candidate for governor in the Volunteer State, spent much of last year (and this) railing against the Federal spending package.

But when the dollars flowed to his district, Wamp was happy to claim credit for boosting the economy back home.

It's classic Republican nonsense, the same sort practiced by Oklahoma's GOP legislators, including Tulsa Rep. John Sullivan.

The flip-flop Wamp story is here.
