One of my favorite lines: "College graduates should not have to live out their 20s in their childhood bedrooms, staring up at fading Obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life."

Yes, that was a great line.
He got better and stronger as he spoke.

Ryan gave a sincere, inspirational and powerful speech, clearly defining the central planners vs personal responsibility and freedom.

Ryan speech made the crew at the MSNBC desk anxious and angry. In a post Ryan speech interview, Scott Walker kept his cool and reminded Sgt. Schultz that Obama was the one who promised to keep the Janesville Wisconsin GM plant open. Scott Walker is cool as a cucumber while under fire from the odd folks at the MSNBC desk! Outstanding!

Ryan must be into hard rock—he said that his play list ranges “from ACDC to Zeppelin.”

“Borrowed, Spent & Wasted”

No, it’s really the largest theft in history and it was done in plain view. The upper tier (The elite) of executives at the banks and companies that got the stimulus money pocketed huge amounts of it. As long as they kickback to ‘the’ parties campaigns the Dept. of Justice will look the other way.

THAT is a first class zinger. Ryan has learned to put a lot of emotion into his speeches without a loss of precision. Love the way he was talking over the applause and keeping it going that way. You know, tonight as he stood there he reminded me of Jack Kennedy at the 1956 Democratic convention. That was when Kennedy was as think as Ryan if not as fit. I even heard some of the same cadences. That was when the Harvard accent dropped away and I heard the Irish come out.

A code pinko got in somehow and got escorted out.

Ryan knocked it out of the park. Everyone in here should be happy about his pick.

Ryan passed the test with flying colors. He gave a well-paced, articulate speech. It touched all the right chords and was delivered like a pro. He is a man to be taken seriously.

Loved his speech! Really took obama to task! One thing i noticed was that he kept clearing his throat, which was kinda distracting. Anyone else notice that? I'm sure its nerve-wracking as hell being up there tho.

He managed to poke fun at Romney in the same way that one of his sons might. Schieffer got that right. Romney likes Ryan. He warms up when he is around the congressman.

A Midwestern middle class guy speaking to the middle class which was hurting before Barry took office, but is really hurting now.

The right message from a credible messenger who appears to be fairly honest and can be trusted which is saying something for anyone of either party who has spent more than a decade in the know-nothing, do-nothing legislative branch in D C.

Mittens speaks tommorrow what will be his message? Who will he be speaking to? Ryan can credibly attack Obamacare and can be trusted when he says that he wants to abolish it.

Mittens will have trouble connecting with the middle class on the repeal of Obamacare when his term as a blue state governor of the bluest state in the union was defined by Obamacare when Barry was just a typical Cook County machine politician learning how to game the social welfare state to gain political power and win elections.

I like this one too, and I may be slightly paraphrasing: Obama put his promises on the record and now he says that’s his record.

This is the first time I've really seen him speak

The first time I became aware of Ryan was during the Republican Healthcare Summit at the WH with Obama. Ryan took it to the document, stating facts and figures. Obama was so irritated that he middle-fingered a couple of times. Ryan was impressive then.

I hoped he would jump into the primaries fray.

He captivated the crowd tonight. Even the commentators on CNN were generally agreeable that he gave an excellent speech.

Now all that’s left is a presidency adrift, surviving on slogans that already seem tired, grasping at a moment that has already passed, like a ship trying to sail on yesterday’s wind.

Yea, me to, after Conde speech, I thought Ryan might have a tough time, but he did great, particularly liked the line about yesterday’s wind
you can’t sail the ship of state on yesterday’s wind.

Great speech by Ryan. I saw him at a meet and greet last year. He gave a great talk then too. Articulate, personable, humerous and knows the issues. He’s probably hoarse from campaigning.

I could just could eat Paul Ryan up with a small spoon!!!

Something tells me that if the Code Pinkos had come even closer, that Ryan would have just very cooly laughed them off in that casual, young-guy way he does, and they would have looked even more like the morons they are.

Ryan is BOLD — in a way that even many libs cannot deny. and how refreshing — to have a VP candidate that no one can MOCK, no one can claim is “stoopid,” or any other such thing. This is a VP they FEAR.

MSNBC freakazoids were going ballistic afterwards ...trying to duke it out w/ Governor Walker. They were clearly suffering emotional distress tonight after Ryan’s performance.

He seemed a bit nervous in the beginning. As I predicted, he would begin to relax into it the MOMENT he said his first number. If you watch closely, you will see that micro moment. I think it would be helpful if he knew this. Once he is talking any sort of numbers, he visibly becomes comfortable. By the way, I have noticed the exact opposite about Obama. The moment he starts having to spew any number, he gets anxiety attacks. This is why he uttered the famous “57” states. Not at all comfortable with numbers.
