Ryan is choice for VP
I think that Blogger and I both agree that this is a good choice for the ticket.....as I said in the original thread:
" Ryan, popular with conservatives, certainly knowledgeable about government finances and familiar with maneuvering in Washington, would be my choice. Ryan would also help the ticket in Wisc and, while it doesn't have Florida impact, it would still be a good "pickup" for Repubs"
Of course his selection as VP will stir the Democrats up - My prediction? On tomorrow's Sunday Morning Talk Shows, the White House surrogates will be out in force scaring the seniors with arguments that their "entitlements' will be taken away from them. In spite of the fact that Obamacare is pulling $500 BILLION out of Medicare, they will position themselves as supporters of Senior benefits and those that are trying to make it solvent, as the enemy!
Ryan will, in my opinion, bring some of the conservative enthusiasm back into the race. Some will argue that Ryan should head the ticket - but the primaries have decided otherwise. Now it's a choice - Romney-Ryan or Obama-Biden.
