WASHINGTON — Rep. Paul Ryan, who was Mitt Romney’s clamp presidential hopeful in 2012, declined Friday to contend either 2016 contender Jeb Bush’s new stipulation that “Americans need to work longer hours” was as deleterious as Romney’s barbarous “47 percent” remarks

“You’re Huffington Post aren’t you? What a hell?” a Wisconsin Republican joked during first.

But Ryan, a scandalous information geek, did offer his interpretation of what Bush meant to say.

“I consider what he’s articulate about is a fact that there are too many people in America who have part-time jobs who wish full-time jobs. That’s a problem; that’s what he’s articulate about,” Ryan said. “If we get into a labor force appearance rates, inside of that, there’s a lot of part-time workers who don’t wish to be part-time workers, who wish to be full-time workers.”

Still, part-time workers’ share of a workforce has been slowly falling

Asked how many times Bush would now have to contend it Ryan’s way, Ryan said, “Welcome to politics.”
