Thought we needed this.
Watching FNC with Bret Baier here.
Any streaming video?
This is a GREAT choice! I just wish Ryan was on the top of ticket....lol! Don’t be fooled by the dems fake enthusiasm. They are panicked in the trenches and smoky back rooms.
Is it crazy to think that if they can convert that RR image into thoughts of Ronald Reagan that it could be a successful strategy? A lot of Reagan Democrats have felt the pain of the current Administration and could they be influenced?
CNN ...But I’m in Japan and it is unavailable .
Aw...I sorta wanted Rubio or Allen West
I sure would like this announcement to pull all the Freepers back together again.
Thanks I’m in the Philippines and it working for me so far...
Ryan is a great choice! He will run rings around Biden....and Obama for that matter.
Paul Ryan pick is awesome. TOTALLY pumped.
Glad he picked Ryan. I did not think he had the courage to pick someone like Ryan. I am glad he did not pick Rubio.
Looking forward to the VP debate!
What time did Romneys team send out their official app announcement?
I dont have cell phone/texting, so I did not sign up for it. I am curious as to what time they finally sent it, given that the rumors were pretty solid by 9PM yesterday.
Looking forward to the VP debate!
Giving the willard his due, not a bad choice if it is Ryan. If the roles were reversed it would be a ticket I would be happily embracing. But with willard at the top and calling the shots, I remember the words of John Nance Garner on the Vice Presidency. I’ll still be voting for Virgil Goode.
Interesting that VA being chosen as the venue for the announcement. A tacit acknowledgement that willard has a real Virginia Problem.
Interesting here on FNC it seems even the democrat strategist concedes Obama and his campaign are notorious liars about most everything and the GOP ticket just has to figure out how to counter this. Amazing.
The Romney campaign has released excerpts of Paul Ryan’s speech to be delivered very soon in Norfolk, Virginia:
Mitt Romney is a leader with the skills, the background and the character that our country needs at a crucial time in its history. Following four years of failed leadership, the hopes of our country, which have inspired the world, are growing dim; and they need someone to revive them. Governor Romney is the man for this moment; and he and I share one commitment: we will restore the dreams and greatness of this country.
For the last 14 years, I have proudly represented Wisconsin in Congress. There, I have focused on solving the problems that confront our country, and turning ideas into action; and action into solutions.
I am committed, in mind and heart, to putting that experience to work in a Romney Administration. This is a crucial moment in the life of our nation; and it is absolutely vital that we select the right man to lead America back to prosperity and greatness.
That man is standing next to me. His name is Mitt Romney. And he will be the next president of the United States.
Let me say a word about the man Mitt Romney will replace. No one disputes President Obama inherited a difficult situation. And, in his first 2 years, with his party in complete control of Washington, he passed nearly every item on his agenda. But that didnt make things better.
In fact, we find ourselves in a nation facing debt, doubt and despair.
This is the worst economic recovery in 70 years.
Unemployment has been above 8 percent for more than three years, the longest run since the Great Depression. Families are hurting.
