Posted on 08/10/2012 9:53:45 PM PDT by Brandonmark
UPDATE:: NBC News has three sources telling the network that Rep. Paul Ryan, (R) Wisconsin, is Mitt Romney's choice for Vice President.
Also the National Review reports the following: Earlier today, a charter plane took off in Boston, stopped in Chicago, then flew to the tiny airport in Janesville, Wis. Janesville, of course, is the hometown of Representative Paul Ryan, a top vice-presidential contender.

This would be a good choice if there was a conservative at the top of the ticket.
Blame Shame Flame or Beg I wont be voting for R/R..
Because of course Ryan is going to be in his hometown instead of washington where he actually spends most of his time
Who are you voting for?
I like it just fine. Good solid choice.
Hopefully Ryan will put a conservative bug in Mitts ear real quick.
Barry, Michelle, Sasha, Malia, Harry, Nancy, and Valerie all thank you. And Mr. Soros sends his regards.
The other side
F U NBC....and Al Gore is President.
Since when did Miss Cleo start working there?
I like Ryan. Great choice. This means that they are going to double-down on economic issues, but they have to be very careful not to turn the campaign into a pedantic snoozefest.
If it's not Obama then it has to be the Constitution, Green, whatever party. But that's irrelevant. If he's not voting then he's clueless to begin with.
NBC is rarely right even once a day..
“Who are you voting for?”
I’ll be voting for conservatives down ticket.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz... is that you?
My source tells me all three of NBC’s sources are named Harry Reid.
But anyhoo, I hope it is Ryan, he’s a solid pick. :)
Fox News reporting... some “Republican official speaking on condition of anonymity” told the AP that Romney’s VP choice IS Paul Ryan.
Romney/Ryan will preach fiscal conservatism and B.O. will preach relaxation of student loan debt. Bet on it :^(
I didn’t think Mitt had the balls to do this. I must give him credit because he picked a guy that will outshine him and steal the show.
A good way to shut down Ryan’s austere budget plans is to make him vice-president - then, he’s out of the loop. Sure, Romney would do that.
Also bet that the Dims will be calling RR Rouges Royce...
P.S. - relaxation of rules on student loan debt will bring over many middle class voters who worry about their kids. Simple $$ for votes.
Paul Ryan is probably the best choice I could think of. I hope we can replace the man in the House. He did very well there.
Here’s a heads up video. Nothing major but Dick Morris went through the possible things (scandals and such) that the dems will try to bring up with the list of VPs.
Paul Ryan is mentioned. Not for anything major but worth a listen so we will be prepared. Dick Morris called it all just sillyness but worth knowing about. Marco Rubio seemed to have more of a scandal problem.
You’re a fool.
Paul’s passionate and knows his stuff better than anyone. This will bring Medicare to the front so be prepared for more mega puking slime
VPs make little difference in the election, although Wis is important He will be able to bring congress along from his VP chair He’ll need to attack the dems vociferously, as opposed to wonkishly
I miss Sarah.
It’s like watching cattle go into the chutes.
Just the opposite. Romney will put the economy and budget into Ryan’s portfolio.
I think even Gus Hall would have done less damage in 2 terms than Obama has done in one year.
My Iphone app failed to say!!!
I’m not, I want him to put a staircase in his ‘ear’ in a few months.
Damned good choice. Ryan is solid conservative and brilliant.
Really brilliant, not like Obama.
Re: “Barry, Michelle, Sasha, Malia, Harry, Nancy, and Valerie all thank you. And Mr. Soros sends his regards.”
Agree completely - Ryan is a great choice — Montanablahblah, please stay home — what a fool you are!
An excellent Conservative pick.
Social and Economic.
His expertise on the Budget, and his knowledge of all of the inner working of SS, Medicare, ObamaCrap...will be a huge asset to Romney.
Love this pick, so glad he picked a conservative with substance and not that milquetoast Pawlenty.
That's the same as asking what do you prefer brain cancer or lung cancer.
If conservatives want to eliminate the cancer infecting both parties they need to stop electing the lesser of two evils.
Consider this everybody...
The Democrats tried to make Paul Ryan the poster child of the 2010 election. He was gonna push granny over the cliff and starve children. How well did that work out for them?
Huge mistake.... HUGE.... if this is true.... I’m sure Axelrod, Jarrett and the rest are ecstatic. Romney is an idiot of he picks Ryan, but it wouldn’t surprise me. I don’t think he wants to win or has any intention of even trying.
If the DUmmies are happy, Ryan is a horrible choice. The one they feared was Rubio and that is who he should have picked. Now we have boring and boring.
Well, here’s what the DUmmies think. It would be hilarious if tomorrow he named Rubio. They would all need to change their diapers.
I’ll be joining you.
Really brilliant, not like Obama.
I agree, although there appears to be some celebration by democRATs on CNN and over at the DUMP (democRATic Underground) that Romney is picking Ryan and not Rubio.
I love Paul Ryan, but I admit I thought our best chance to win would be with Rubio...
I'm just SO relieved he didn't pick Portman or Pawlenty!
Pedantic snoozefest. Heh. That’s what I was thinking. The economy is probably the #1 or #2 issue for most voters, but they sure won’t want a dissertation on macroeconomics from here until Nov. 6th.
I hope it is Paul Ryan! Great conservative choice!
See my Tagline:
Probably Rong Paul and H. Ross Merlot.
Okay. I'll answer. If those are the only two possible eventualities then I'd prefer lung cancer.
I'm not asking who you will vote for nor if you will vote. Unfortunately either Romney or Obama will be the next president of the USA. It can't be neither. Who do you prefer it be?
Do you think the dummies would act unhappy about anyone he picked?
I agree. I wonder if this is all a huge head-fake, and Romney's real pick is Rubio... ;-)
They are happy because they think he’s TOO conservative to win. The fact that they think that makes me like him more.
That said, my Mom, as I mentioned yesterday on another thread, has been vehemently insisting for months he should pick Rubio. She likes Ryan but says Rubio would be the best and would be good to get Latino voters.
