(Imminent) Romney chooses Paul Ryan as his running mate

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...LEFTTopStories

Romney's announcing it today at 9 AM EDT aboard the USS Wisconsin. If that isn't a clear signal that it's going to be Paul Ryan, I don't know what is. Intrade agrees, with the GOP VP market surging to 75% for Paul Ryan.

I'm glad Romney went bold. The WSJ already endorsed Ryan for VP and I think the nearly unanimous praise in conservative circles nudged Romney to make the pick.

I think it's become very clear that Romney wants to really go with the "big ideas" theme, because you can't pick Paul Ryan and not talk about his plans to reform Medicare and Medicaid, which are the two fastest growing programs in the Federal government.

Edit: Intrade's market now has it at 94% for Ryan.

He's an extremist whose only goal is to redistribute income upwards.

Excellent! We get to talk about Ryan's budget and the white upper-class male demographic gets double representation.

This is just gold. Not only are they running on killing healthcare, they are running on killing Medicare. So, so awesome!

I like that liberals don't like him. Good choice.

Now the dems are upset because they will have to have real fiscal debates they weren't expecting to have.

Ryan is going to make Biden his *****.

It's a great pick. The man is incredibly intelligent and will contrast well with that dimwit Biden.

This makes the choice very clear. You can choose a set of policies that will eventually turn America into Greece, or you can choose policies that will promote growth and prosperity for everyone at all income levels.

Of course Obama's response will be to attack, attack, and attack again. All they have is a negative campaign because their record is so pathetic and inadequate.

You leftists were talking about it anyway. Now you just get to talk about it with somebody smarter than you.

The ticket should read Ryan/Romney and Romney should be HIS VP.



If gonzo hates this guy (as he would, Gonzo like the bad guys) then he must be a good choice.

Mitt could have picked genghis khan as a running mate. anything is better than OBUMMER and Biden. Plus Liberanazzis hate him. Another reason to vote for Mitt. ANYTHING other than OBUMMER.

It's a terrible pick, he already has the conservative vote locked in, why wouldn't he pick a guy that might get him a different demographic of voters like Rubio.

Good pick I think. Should satisfy the Conservatives.

EDIT: tsbalr120, Hispanics would still vote for Obama even if Rubio was the pick. Rubio didn't have enough experience IMO. Romney didn't want to have to hear about that as well.
