He is well qualified with his extensive knowledge of the budget and courage to tell it like it is AND to come up with actual plans to solve the big problems. However, he is a white male from a less consequential state.
Just seems unlikely. Sad that this is what our politics have come to - the color of your skin, or which sex you are, is more important than the content of your character.
It’s worth noting that demographic appeal has always come into consideration for a running mate. Usually, it was which state he could deliver. Maybe Ryan would also appeal to his fellow Irish-Americans and Roman Catholics.
Hay! Watch your keyboard. We think we’re consequential!
I was at a meeting where Ryan spoke yesterday (to great applause and standing Os) and he recounted how his ancestors came to WI when potatoes wouldn’t grow so well in Ireland. They arrived int he spring and thought WI looked just like Ireland. Then they were slapped by winter, but they decided to stay anyway. That is why Paul has 65 cousins in his county — all named Ryan. And why (he claims with a laugh) that he has an “easy” time getting re-elected each cycle.
Don’t ever underestimate the Irish.
OMG, he looked and sounded good yesterday.
I’m hoping for a Santorum-Ryan ticket.
