Well - I am a bit surprised...

The CBS radio analysts are rather favorably impressed with the choice of Ryan, despite the potential for WH’s and Dems attacks on him.

Ryan’s words brought me to tears

Me too. When he said our rights come from nature and God and not government, I teared up and started cheering! I think I just got some hope back. Romney chose VERY wisely.

Oh please! Rubio is cut from the same cloth as McConnel, Graham and other GOP-es! I guess it's his pro-Amnesty position that you feels makes Rubio such a brilliant choice?

Sorry, but Rubio was way over-hyped. Ryan was the superior choice.

A Rubio nomination would have put the focus of the campaign on illegal immigration.

That’s it! Just woke up. Watched a lot of the middle of night coverage and the left wing media was in full meltdown trying to spin the news. I did notice that the women media clowns do have a bit of a crush on him though.

Bottom line...Obama’s lead with women voters just went up in smoke!

Thanks for #182.

I will vote Romney in self-defense and to disrupt Obama, anyway, but I guess it is good to have someone more conservative than Mitt on the ticket.

Ryan will be in a better position to do good in the House and Senate as the President of the Senate and Romney’s point man with both the House and the Senate.

This is by far the best VP nominee we could have expected out of Romney.

The left will, assiduously, attack Paul Ryan for his entitlement reform ideas, and the left will succeed in getting many senior citizens to fear him. Win or lose, this is what the left will do, all the way up to the general election.

Good point. It is amazing watching these anti-Romney types show more disgust with Romney than the Marxist who currently occupies the Oval Office. And we say that the DUmmies are unhinged!

Ryan is a metalhead, hunter, workout fantatic, Ayn radian, Hayek reader, etc

As a college student Paul Ryan read the fiscal budget for fun while Barry smoked pot.

This is why Biden has been on vacation for two weeks. They didn’t want him saying something stupid so close to this announcement.

__________________________________________

Not the way I see it.

They kept (are keeping) Joe locked up so that they can plausibly claim health or personal reasons for him to bow out at the convention.

Now they know against whom they are casting his replacement.

Ryan is the man we need for our future as a free people. My only disappointment is that he isn’t at the top of the ticket.

He is still young, give him, say 7-8 years.

Not to mention the "eligibility" issue. From both sides.

On a totally unrelated issue: I'm loving this iPad I just got. Much easier to FReep with compared to an iPhone. Haha

Karl Rove just said on Fox News that Paul Ryan’s district overwhelmingly voted for Obama in ‘08, voted twice for Clinton and voted for Gore in ‘00, but that Ryan consistently get’s over 60% of the vote in his district.

Pretty impressive!

the DUmmies are unhinged!

The usual high level of intellectual discourse at DU this morning. Of course, they are falling in love with Biden all over agian, some have never fallen out of love with Biden, they love his big grin which shows just how awesome he is. Hilarious if the DUmmies didn't vote.
