Watch what I do, not what I say?
U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-WI, 1st District, is certainly sending out mixed signals.
Last week, he was all, "There's a zero chance I will be seeking the Republicans' nomination for president in 2012," in a press release.
This week it's been announced that Ryan will be in New Hampshire next month -- site of the traditional first presidential primaries -- to do some fund-raising.
Long before the Iowa caucuses mattered, the Granite State's 1.3 million population got the first opportunity to shake the hand of every presidential wannabe.
Ryan does not say he's going to N.H. to test the waters for himself -- but rather to headline a Feb. 26 fund-raiser for the state's Republican Party and another for the state's Young Republicans. The Journal Sentinel says state party officials asked Ryan to raise funds for them because of his fiscal conservatism, which plays well in a state noted for its refusal to enact either a state income tax or a state sales tax.
