Paul Ryan Choice Signals Plan to Go at the One Head On

In a little over an hour, Mitt Romney will formally announce, from the deck of the U.S.S. Wisconsin, in Norfolk, Virginia, that he has chosen Rep. Paul Ryan as his V.P. choice. I was surprised, and delighted, by this news. I assumed that Mitt would go with the safe choice, Tim Pawlenty. I am happy to be wrong. The selection of Paul Ryan is an excellent one because:

  1. There is no one better to make the case for courageous leadership to deal with our looming fiscal crisis and preventing our country from turning into Greece.
  2. This choice demonstrates that the Romney campaign is not only not afraid of the bleating by airheads like Debbie Wasserman Schultz about the “Romney-Ryan budget,” they are prepared to take it head on.
  3. Speaking of the budget, this selection gives the Romney campaign to highlight the fact that the democrat-run Senate hasn’t passed a budget in over 1000 days, even though they are legally required to do so.

One more thing: Can you imagine how much fun it’s going to be to watch Paul Ryan debate Joe Biden?

Nicely played, Governor. I was starting to think that you were going a little wobbly on us.
