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.

    Ryan voted for TARP and begged congress to pass the bill in an exasperating speech on the house floor, stating, “If we fail to pass this, I fear the worst is yet to come.”

    Ryan voted for the HR 1540 — the NDAA — or National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, the greatest rollback of civil liberties in American history, inspiring a “pull Ryan” anti-Paul Ryan site to implore him to oppose it as well as SOPA:

    Ryan voted against removing US armed forces from Afghanistan through Dennis Kucinich’s 2011 house bill.

    Ryan voted against Bush impeachment for lying about Iraq.

    Ryan voted for declaring Iraq part of War on Terror with no exit date.

  2. Bob,
    I appreciate your taking the time to write such a long informative comment, however, you aren’t telling me anything I didn’t already know. I am, after all, me, remember?
    I didn’t oppose the Iraq war or the Patriot Act, and I think the idea of impeaching GW Bush for the “crime” of trying to keep us safe is beyond insane. If there’s a word for über insane that’s what it would be.
    Even I did disagree with Ryan on those issues, I would still consider him a FANTASTIC choice.

    • T-O, i am like Joe Friday…just the facts ma’am. And The New American website has got similar things to say.

      To me, Ryan and Romney (R&R…and you can quote me on that) are BIG R nanny state Republicans like Bloomberg and I would call myself a little “r” Independent/Republican/Libertarian. But consider this…20 years ago I voted in my first POTUS election. My pick… CLINTON! BIG MISTAKE! In 1992 I was a Democrat, but by 1998 the party left me (pun intended) and in 2000 I went Independent. After 9/11 I was full-on neocon hawk. Now that I realize governments love staging terror to force one world NWO garbage down our throats, I am against illegal wars, overreaching government, the Federal Reserve and I stand for the Constitution…in other words I am one of those people mamma warned you about…A RON PAUL SUPPORTER!. The Senate race here is ridiculous..establishment left wing vs. the WWE?!?! For me i am writing in Peter Schiff (YouTube him for his CNBC or FBN appearances, he kicks ass) AS A PROTEST. Basically, I would be described as “domestic terrorist” OOH I IS SHAKIN IN MAH BOOTS AT COUSIN JANET!!!!

      Here in CT-Stan, primaries are not open. Either you register with one of the plutocratic parties or you don’t vote. And I want that changed!
