Thought we needed this.
Don’t be surprised if Obama replaces Biden on the ticket now. Where is Biden anyway? Haven’t seen him in awhile...lol!
I hope Brooks and Dunn have given them the right to use Only in America.
The original RR....Ronald Reagan.
wouldnt that be fun to watch Ryan versus Clinton
Allen West I want for President!
Rubio would have been relentlessly belittled as a token pick for the Hispanic vote and his message would have been drowned out I think.
Ryan will be a lot trickier for the MSM and Obama, because it’s the economy the economy the economy, and they can’t engage him on any level without it bringing up the economy, which they’d like everyone to forget about. Now they may try to scare people with the granny off the cliff- but the thing is, Americans are already scared re: the economy for their futures and their children’s futures. So I think this is great.
What’s rather interesting is- I am going to go out on a limb and say Ryan is not, in the long term, interested in being President. So does that open a door for West for president in 8 years assuming Romney/economy does better and has 2 terms? Because likely in 4 years and definitely in 8, the islamist problem is going to be really huge.
The world is going to need the USA to lift them up first economically and then against islam.
CNN sounds like they are in a bit of freak-out mode over this.
You can tell they thought they already marginalized this guy, and are repeating every MediaMatters/DailyKos talking point they can think of.
Defense, definitely. And in a few years j hope he will run for President.
Great pick for VP.
Ryan is articulate and an expert on the Federal budget.
He took on Obama at that phony summit on Obamacare back in Feb. 2010.
He will be able to defend his budget, in spite of the co-ordinated attack by the Dems/MSM, tha tis alread tinder way.
Gov. McDonnell at the mike-history is about to be made.
May God shed His grace on us one more time.
Ryan/Romney will put Seniors at-risk...
Thank you all for your replies! You got that information back to me before I even got back from making a cup of coffee and with an intention to search for it.
Just looked up on Wikipedia, both Dem & Rep POTUS candidates used it at various times during 2004-2012, including Bush, Kerry, Obama...
McDonnell doing great-with no Teleprompter!
What the writer of the song has to say
Seniors are already at risk. Obama bucks are worth less and less at the store. And they have to deal with Obamacare telling them how much health care they’re entitled to. They should be scared, not of Ryan, but of Obama.
Got it via Fox News. Thanks .
LOL, I MEANT to type “worse.”
Wish he’d mentioned gas prices as part of Obama’s energy resume.
“Looking forward to the VP debate!”
That’s for sure. “Stand up, Joe!” (....because Joe will be on the floor.) Ryan will chew him UP.
Our seniors are at risk from Obama and Ryan will be able to bring that message home in spectacular fashion as long as Romney doesn’t muzzle him. Our young people really like Ryan too. My Rush ‘baby’ is a big Ryan fan and so are a lot of his friends.
Ryan Nemesis of OBama- Narcissistic Obama is going to have a problem now..hahahah
Watching Fox and the governor of Virginia talking. Have I got the right video stream?
Ryan is a Metallica fan.
Can’t wait for the Ryan/Biden debate — a FaithfuL Catholic vs. a Faux Catholic!
Mitt Romney coming off of the USS Wisconsin to the mike......
I ain't jumping up and down like I did when Palin was picked.
Wow! What an entrance!
“Ryans a Natual Born Citizen, so thats a good start right there. Now factor in his fiscal acumen, and Im almost ready to believe that Team Mittens actually wants to win”
I’m very pleased with this choice. I can now say without reservation that Romney has my vote.
Now I hope they set about to destroy the little marxist from Kenya. Pound him everyday with the truth.
No teleprompter for McDonnell? He was fabulous and really warmed up the crowd.
Announced right this minute!
bigger applause for ryan than romney so far
He's a great Representative, and will surely do a wonderful job as a VP.
“The Demoncrats and the media talked the economy down 2007-2009....that is a fact.”
That FORCED US Businesses to Go Galt.
But you’ll NEVER get anyone in the Mainstream Media to admit it, if they want to keep that media job, outside of Fox News.
I’m from Wisconsin and Romney is picking the Babe Ruth of VP.
If this is how he’s going to lead,
What time is liftoff for Kolob?
Amen to your post 79.
Allen West...Secretary Defense...John Bolton Secretary of State
Obama told a woman they should have given her mother a pill to kill her instead of a pacemaker. He is a lying vampire. Romney needs to have that in ads.
Romney is giving a very good speech.
I think Paul Ryan is an excellent choice.
You are very welcome.
Common Ground - Red flag
Paul Ryan will kick Biden’s a$$ in the debates soooooooooo bad that we just may see him cry.
The plan to evict Obama is being executed right before our very eyes.
Neither Romney nor Ryan should ever use a ‘prompter. That would be a nice slam on O’Mugabe.
Somebody should go find that truck that is stuck in reverse. Beep, beep, beep, beep. Or am I the only one hearing that?
This choice also opens the door for a pretty big October surprise on the whole ‘who is Obama anyway). His college record stuff is not going away now for sure and the college records are the key that hides the rest of the questions surrounding Obama.
repealing and replacing Obamacare is the promise.
I believe Ryan will play more role in the campaign than Palin did.
