Obammer Campaign claims foul on Ryan.

Obammazamma and Plugs, sadly, don’t have moms to help on the campaign trail!!

Axelrod claims “We should only use family members that we all have...”

Let face it, as much as we love Palin, Ryan is a better pick.

Ryan has been thur the national media mill repeatedly the last 4 years. Palin was thrown to the media wolves in 2008 with no previous exposer to the savages. Ryan has one major advantage Palin lacked, he knows how to manage the national media.

During the HillaryCare debate, I recall some wag arguing that if it passed, the GOP would be reduced to the pitiful state of the British Conservative Party. By that he meant American conservatives would spend the rest of their days arguing with rats as how to best administer the welfare state.

Almost twenty years later, his political forecast has come true. The welfare state is accepted by the GOP and most of it implicitly by the Tea Party. The question is how to manage it so as to not destroy our republic, which is probably an impossible quest.

I agree Ryan an excellent pick. As much as I love and respect Sarah Palin, the media has destroyed her and her voice pitch and rhythym can be as much irritating as Hillary’s. But she continues to make inroads on the status quo with her opinons and support of great candidates.

Ryan sounds like school teacher, he starts his rally without rallying up crowd. He his voice pitch is very low.
I think slowly, his crowd size will decrease.

Romeny camps biggest mistake is not tapping Palin. They will regret in Nov.

Yes, I completely agree with you.

For many voters, a candidate needs to be enough of a blank slate that the voter can project their own hopes, dreams and desires on to that candidate and feel s/he reflects them back to the voter.

Palin wasn't as able then, and certainly isn't now able, to do that for voters quite like Ryan is.

If all of Romney's decisions are as good as his VP pick is, we will be in good hands for the next few elections cycles.

I totally agree. Ryan can think on his feet, whereas Palin needs canned or rehearsed responses. During her many interviews she often sounds like a recorded message.

------------------------

Evidently you'd like to see some of that 'energy' used against Romney. Earlier this week you posted: "I want to see Palin pain in butt for Romney in case he gets elected."

Actually he does. Sarah got a 10 point bump in the polls for McCain. Ryan has a one point bump and it is pretty much gone. The people turned out in droves for Sarah. Romney shouldn’t be our candidate but since so far it appears that he will be, he should have chosen Sarah as the VP if Romney wants to win which I am not sure if he does or not. Romney was a VERY bad choice.

Ryan is making this as Medicare election. They should bring Palin along with Romney and Ryan and change message back to hammering Obama and his economic policies.

They need Palin pitch and tone to do that.
Majority of US population is buying media narrative that this election is all about medicare.
They need to change it to failed economy of Obama.
Palin can do it better than anybody.

Rasmussen polls are first indication.

Mitt’s first big decision has proven to be a good one so far. As good as the other VP candidates were, nobody could match Ryan’s command of the all important and impending health and budget issues. And of course he puts a swing state into play. I love Palin but the politcal calculous needed to win just didn’t favor her, at least this time around.

I am not saying Palin for VP candidate. That part is over long time back.

After selection, Romney camp failed to tap Palin. They need somebody to change narrative.

Palin lives in Obama head. Bring her in campaign and mess up some heads.

“Palin lives in Obama head.”

An argument could be made that for Obama, Ryan is equally, if not more, irritating than Palin. Recall Ryan’s publically schooling the president on the budget back in 2010, and Obama’s sarcastic jab at Ryan’s “props”. Obama fears Ryan’s intellect.

Look glad you love Palin but take a deep breath, get over your hurt feelings and deal with reality.

You got Palin in 2008 and lost. Picking Palin in 2012 would help any more then it did in 2008.

Did it ever occur to you that she didn’t want to be the VP selection, even if Romney wanted her.

Ryan is a good pick and it’s time to get over what could have been.

Look at the polling data.

Glad you love Palin but the facts do not fit your dogma. Ryan has all ready flipped polls in WI, OH, VA and FLA for Romney. Palin had no such impact on the polls. McCain was never "10 points ahead" in 2008. To say so indicates a willing suspension of fact to fit an emotion based opinion.

Ryan has another major advantage: He is from Wisconsin, went to college in Ohio, climbs the mountains of Colorado and has a mom in Florida.

What do these four states have in common?

Sorry you seem to confuse media polls for professional polls. They are two completely different things. The junk polls you like to cite are manipulated to validate a pre determined story line in the media. No serious pollster pays any attention to them

And what makes you think Palin would have accepted? She stated in her book, 'Going Rogue', that she'd never run as a VP candidate again.

I also think it's absurd to suggest that a true conservative leader like Palin should serve as VP under a documented liberal progressive like Romney. He's not even in the same league as her, and isn't qualified to carry her briefcase.

Let’s also not forget that these crowds for Palin came AFTER she was introduced at the RNC convention. why not wait and see what the crowds are like after he gives his vp speech. I am a huge Palin fan to this day, but these eyeore’s who continue to gripe about Ryan’ effect are as dishonest as Axelrod and his crew.

so right you are William...Palin whom I strongly supported in 2008 and did so the beginning of this year....
BUT
she took herself out of the game and it hurt her and will hurt her from here on out...hope she can recover but I have my doubts...
I still like her but don’t strongly support her as I did, and I proudly display her books in my home and share with anyone who requests them...but again...I believe she hurt herself...
