Governor Romney’s running mate is Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. He looks like an excellent choice to me. The article discusses his views on the economy, which should be the principal focus of the campaign.

Today at 9 am EST, Governor Mitt Romney will announce his Vice-Presidential candidate.  Representative Paul Ryan, Republican-Wisconsin, is his excellent choice.

By choosing Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, like Julius Gaius Caesar before him,  has burned his bridges behind his army at the River Rubicon. There can now be no retreat. It is victory or  death at the polls on a clearly-defined issue of grave importance for this Republic.  All moderately well-informed Americans now know what the 2012 election is about – the U.S.  debt crisis and how it will or will not be resolved.

Paul Ryan is no bullshit politician. He works from numbers. Statistics do not drive his policies. But his policies are formulated on the basis of a careful consideration of those numbers.

Paul Ryan knows – because the statistics tell him so – that the  U.S. debt crisis cannot be resolved just by allowing the Bush tax…

    I agree with Conservates on Fire on this. I didn’t expect Romney to make any but a “safe” choice for VP. Ryan is not a safe choice. He’s saying he’s committed to a particular vision of fiscal reform, come hell or high water.

    I predict the Romney/Ryan campaign gets both,

  2. I0ve been leaving this comment wherever Romney’s VP choice is being discussed:

    Romney just went up a notch in my book. This the type of decission I would expect from a good corporate He picked a man that is smart, knowledgeable, and will be an effective contributor to the executive team. They complement each other in many ways. Romney is a big picture gut and Ryan is a detail guy. Romney is a bit of an elitest and Ryan is not. Ryan has been in Congress since 1999. He has no home or even an apartment in DC. He sleeps on a cot in his office and after the last vote on Thursday each week he heads home where his pick-up truck is parked at the airport waiting for him. men are devoted family men. Romney might have picked someone who would havebeen more helpful in the campaign to get himself elected; but he picked someone who will be a great asset if he is elected. Neither man is as bold as I would like them to be on policy; but, all in all I think we have a pretty good teaam.
