Skip to comments.Is it really Paul Ryan?

Anyone else wondering if maybe this could be a cover for the pick of Rubio? I've noticed that so far Rob Portman and Tim Pawlenty have announced that they received calls from Romney saying they wouldn't be his runningmate but declined to say who will. Thus far I haven't (correct me if I missed it) heard that Rubio has not heard it. It also seems strange that this news would leak this early and the time picked for the event tomorrow also seems odd. Does anyone else think that maybe the rumors about Ryan is just a cover for the pick of someone else, likely Rubio?
Rubio would backfire on Romney. Hispanics know Rubio is no Hispanic. He’s Cuban. Besides, how easy he submits to Amnesty and God knows what else..
God, I hope it’s Rubio. I love Ryan but he’s going to be to easy to demonize for the 10% of idiots who flip and flop to decide the presidency.
Oh yeah, and.. NBC said they have 3 credible sources who said ‘it’s Ryan’.
I’m still asking if it’s really Mitt Romney.
I’m with you. I like Ryan but it’s a little short-sighted, I think, to take him from his current position where he excels. Additionally, he doesn’t help (and may even hurt) with states like Florida where many Senior see any change, for better or worse, to Social Security or Medicare as the end of the world
I wanted Newt, that said, Romney is far from stupid.
If Romney picks Ryan it means his team considers Florida in the bag and wants to go after Wisconsin.
Otherwise it would be Rubio for vp....
Ryan would be a ‘I’m SERIOUS about fixing the economy’ message from Romney. I think it would resonate. Ryan is an attack dog but in a dignified, Reaganesque manner. And what a great ambassador either Ryan or Rubio would be. Not the limp-wristed panty waists we currently have.
i am ecstatic its not some squishy rino will be working hard for the RR ticket
just think ryan in 2020 i just had an orgasm
LOL... good one.
I believe Ryan would be awesome as well. But we live in a different time now. Children raised on the 15-second soundbite are allowed to VOTE. Substance matters to the over 30, but without the edge (hair, race, accent, funky little secret), it doesn’t carry the vote anymore.
Mind you, Willard amassed every dime of his vast wealth on his own as he inherited nothing....zip, zero, zilch, nada...from pops.
You don’t accumulate that kinda cheese with a bird-brain.
