Mitt Romney picked Paul Ryan for his Vice Presidential running mate? Time out! You have got to be joking! I can’t think of anyone more controversial, someone who offers less balance to the ticket, or someone who will rile up more Democrats to turn out in November than Paul Ryan.
If I didn’t know any better, I’d say this is self sabotage.
And I thought this race was going to be interesting. Just as it was getting started, Mitt Romney ended it. What will be interesting is to see how the American people react in polling after this announcement.
This pick brings back to life one of the most damaging discussions Republicans have had to deal with in the past two years. Paul Ryan is the author of the budget proposal so many Republicans like Joe Heck and Dean Heller voted for, that ends Medicare. Paul Ryan is the poster child for killing Medicare.
Is this a hoax? Or the dumbest VP choice in the history of America? Or just another fine measure of Mitt’s decision making capabilities?
This is why America sucks. A guy like Mitt Romney inherits wealth from his father, goes to Harvard Business School, gets rich firing people and outsourcing jobs, and tries to run for president on a platform of self reliance and individualism. Oh the irony. Then he proves once again by picking Paul Ryan that it isn’t his individual smarts, hard work or decision making capabilities that has got him anywhere in life, it’s his family money.
Gee Mitt, you ruined the election cycle with this crap! Journalists and bloggers will have some stuff to write about, but it’s going to be soo much more predictable. I’m not even excited anymore.
 As we know it.
