Romney Names Paul Ryan as his Running Mate
I woke up this morning with the awesome news that Mitt Romney had selected Paul Ryan as his running mate. It made my day and excited me for the first time since Romney became the nominee. I then flipped on the iPhone and say this article by Ryan Lizza from the The New Yorker! Apparently the libs have been doing their dirt work and are thrilled with the Ryan pick. The following article by Mr. Lizza is really interested, I won't bore you with the entire article but you can read it here, if you would like. However here are excerpts with a bit of Common Sense Thinking inserted by myself!
"If tonight’s reporting is correct, and if Mitt Romney really does announce at 9 A.M. Saturday that Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin is his running mate, Romney has made the most daring decision of his political career.
After spending weeks looking into Ryan’s history for The New Yorker, visiting his home town, and interviewing him twice, I am genuinely surprised that Romney chose him. First, let’s tally the risks of a Ryan pick.
For one thing, Ryan has no significant private-sector experience" Seriously would love to see how the libs argue this point, but if they do, they need to be prepared to describe Barack Hussein Obama's "private sector" experience.
Lizza continues, "But Ryan’s Washington experience is also light, at least for a potential President—which, after all, is the main job description of a Vice-President. Ryan has worked as a think-tank staffer and Congressman, but he’s never been in charge of a large organization, and he has little experience with foreign policy." Okay let's compare Barack Obama with Paul Ryan in that regard, Obama had a partial term as essentially an absentee Senator from Illinois before he was elected to the presidency. Ryan has been a Congressman for 12 years!
Lizza continues, "And the experience that Ryan does have is not exactly what voters are clamoring for at the moment. The bulk of Ryan’s House career coincided with the Presidency of George W. Bush, during which he was a reliable vote for many Bush policies that have not aged well: Medicare Part D; the Iraq War; and the Troubled Asset Relief Program. Ryan told me that voting for all of that spending, which added trillions to the deficit, made him “miserable,” but he’ll need a better explanation in his October debate with Joe Biden." Ryan debating Biden is something that we do not want to miss. This will be embarrassing for Old Joe but it will be seriously fun to watch. As a Fox contributor said earlier today, "Joe's try table is not normally in the "locked" position!
Lizza continues "Romney’s choice of Ryan will undoubtedly be criticized as capitulation to the right, and this pick does seem to demonstrate that Romney is not able or willing to distance himself from the base of his party." Seriously folks, what candidate in their right mind would would to distance themselves from their base. Obama certainly hasn't and that is what will be President Obama's downfall!
A great day for conservatives and I for one I thrilled that Mitt Romney has found his voice and is out there fighting these idiots who want to totally socialize our economy!
