West would be an excellent choice, and his district was redrawl, making his reelection less certain. All four are good by me, T-paul, and Portman just seem so vanilla.

At this point I do not think the VP pick will mean much at all.
This election is strictly Obumbo and the Communist, Yes or No.
At this point it seems to be heading to 50/50.
I watch Rasmussen every day and shake my head, wondering why
Obozo has not seen a steady down-slide from day one.

I thank God every day that I was able to leave a country that has fifty percent absolute IDIOTS.

I’ve been following this and there is one major problem. Ryan is in Colorado. The plane (a charter flight so we really don’t know who it is) is in Ryan’s home town of Janesville.

This all started because someone was tracking charter flights out of Boston and thought it was unusual that one went to Janesville.

I actually think they are playing games with the media.

This reminds me of the night we found out Sarah Palin was the VP choice. FreeRepublic, along with one other website, had the news first.

That was memorable, wasn't it? I can still remember that first picture I saw of her in an FR thread. FReepers had the whole thing sussed in no time, and were providing details about this new national figure almost immediately.

I could live with Paul Ryan as VP, though he is needed in Congress with the fiscal issues. I'm hoping someone will start a thread saying that Rep. Alan West was seen boarding Romney's jet!

Just a charter flight. We don’t know who hired or who it is picking up.

Ryan’s chances exploded on InTrade over the past 24 hrs., so clearly a Romney insider is trying to make some bucks on the side

OK, just checked flights from Boston to Janesville and none are listed.

Ryan would be a good choice. We have many conservative House members, so losing one of the many will not hurt

Ryan is a much better choice than the others mentioned. Please, folks, Marco Rubio is not a conservative....yikes

It won't. While Ryan is a fine guy, I can't see it helping Romney all that much. There just ain't enough lipstick in the world for that pig.

Well, it this is gonna be a rumor thread, I should be able to use it for my unsolicited advice:

Pick Ryan.

The Dems are gonna run against the “Ryan Plan” anyway, best to have it’s most outstanding defender front-and-center.

He’s also good presidential timber in the future.

Yes, we need him in Congress, but we need him more here.

Love to see him and Joe go toe-to-toe.

True, but it’s called the “Ryan plan” not the Jindal Plan or Rubio plan or McDonnell plan.

That’s why I think a Gov is a ‘safer’ pick, but I dont want ‘safe’ from Romney, I’d be happy with ‘conservative’.

... and Ryan is conservative.

There’s an option to have your plane not be tracked by these services:

Actually Ryan would be a good pick. I just wish he’d stay in the House because he does so well there. Maybe Romney should do us all a favor and pick John Boehner instead.

Check again. It refueled in Chicago. The same plane has been in Janesville three times in 8 days. Also in New Jersey and Ohio.

On a personal level, Ryan is an ass. He’s also a wheeler-dealer insider.

Another RINO eh?

As a Californian, you know that how? Here in Wisconsin we love Paul Ryan and only grudgingly would share him with the nation as the VP nominee.

it landed in Janesville 8 hours ago. It is owned by SC Aciation Inc. Is it possible to check campaign expenses for invoices by SC Aviation Inc? is that info available online?

To your attack on Paul Ryan’s character, the words of Robert Owen’s father-in-law might apply: “Thou needest be very right, for thou art very positive.”

I remember all the phone calls flying back and forth between me and my friends. "It's Palin! It's Palin!" Long before the MSM had a clue.

Conservatives should be happy if its Rubio, Jindal or Ryan. especially since less conservative choices were bandied about (like Portman).

He'll have a republican civil war if he nominates Rubio or Jindal.

Whatever votes either man brings will come with a significant price.

Even if Rubio's citizenship was golden, his amnesty for illegals doesn't sound all that conservative.

Rubio also demonstrated a lack of judgement with regard to the letter Bachmann and 4 other Republican congressmen signed onto that targeted Huma Abedin.

Honestly, I started out liking the guy, but the more I learn about him, the more I ask what has Rubio done other than saying some conservative things that would make conservatives happy?
