Allen West I want for President!
Rubio would have been relentlessly belittled as a token pick for the Hispanic vote and his message would have been drowned out I think.
Ryan will be a lot trickier for the MSM and Obama, because it’s the economy the economy the economy, and they can’t engage him on any level without it bringing up the economy, which they’d like everyone to forget about. Now they may try to scare people with the granny off the cliff- but the thing is, Americans are already scared re: the economy for their futures and their children’s futures. So I think this is great.
What’s rather interesting is- I am going to go out on a limb and say Ryan is not, in the long term, interested in being President. So does that open a door for West for president in 8 years assuming Romney/economy does better and has 2 terms? Because likely in 4 years and definitely in 8, the islamist problem is going to be really huge.
The world is going to need the USA to lift them up first economically and then against islam.

CNN sounds like they are in a bit of freak-out mode over this.

You can tell they thought they already marginalized this guy, and are repeating every MediaMatters/DailyKos talking point they can think of.

Great pick for VP.

Ryan is articulate and an expert on the Federal budget.

He took on Obama at that phony summit on Obamacare back in Feb. 2010.

He will be able to defend his budget, in spite of the co-ordinated attack by the Dems/MSM, tha tis alread tinder way.

Gov. McDonnell at the mike-history is about to be made.

May God shed His grace on us one more time.

Seniors are already at risk. Obama bucks are worth less and less at the store. And they have to deal with Obamacare telling them how much health care they’re entitled to. They should be scared, not of Ryan, but of Obama.

Our seniors are at risk from Obama and Ryan will be able to bring that message home in spectacular fashion as long as Romney doesn’t muzzle him. Our young people really like Ryan too. My Rush ‘baby’ is a big Ryan fan and so are a lot of his friends.

Is anybody actually excited about this pick? Isn't Ryan kind of a RINO? He has an A rating from the NRA, and he's pro-life (a devout Catholic), so I guess that's good.

I ain't jumping up and down like I did when Palin was picked.

“Ryan’s a Natual Born Citizen, so that’s a good start right there. Now factor in his fiscal acumen, and I’m almost ready to believe that Team Mittens actually wants to win”

I’m very pleased with this choice. I can now say without reservation that Romney has my vote.

Now I hope they set about to destroy the little marxist from Kenya. Pound him everyday with the truth.

“The Demoncrats and the media talked the economy down 2007-2009....that is a fact.”

That FORCED US Businesses to Go Galt.

But you’ll NEVER get anyone in the Mainstream Media to admit it, if they want to keep that media job, outside of Fox News.

This choice also opens the door for a pretty big October surprise on the whole ‘who is Obama anyway). His college record stuff is not going away now for sure and the college records are the key that hides the rest of the questions surrounding Obama.

Unlike McCain & Palin, RR have known each other personally for quite a while and went out campaign together long before Ryan was picked as VP. Palin was chosen partly because she's a female (flame me if you want, but you know it's true) and might have 'balanced' the ticket, in addition to conservative firebrand (albeit unknown then). I didn't see personal chemistry between the two beyond the campaign business. At most it's like a senior guy and his protege, not his equal partner.

I believe Ryan will play more role in the campaign than Palin did.
