Did Gerry Connolly just endorse Ron Paul?

No, but this tweet from the liberal congressman from northern Virginia will leave quite a few people puzzled about its meaning:

Given that Ron Paul favors major cuts in spending, reducing the debt, reducing government’s role in education, and a frugal foreign policy, it must follow that Representative Connolly is claiming that the Republican Party does not favor these things. He’s certainly right, but it seems to be an interesting admission from someone who accuses Republicans just this sort of “extreme” ideology.
