    It's a desperation play for sure that will only delight voters who are already on his side. But I guess he figured what more do I have to lose.
    The best part is that now the election can be a referendum on the Ryan budget and more tax cuts for the rich. Let's get that over and done with so we can move on.

    Paul Ryan knows he is smarter and has better solutions than Romney. And, he'll not be able to hide this during the campaign. This will hurt Romney's campaign.

    I think it will energize it. At least the Romney Campaign has direction & some muscle behind it now.

    Do you remember how ignorant that argument was back then? It's essentially the same fear mongering here assuming they try to use that against Ryan (which they did when he introduced the bill).

That's rationing folks, no two ways about it. All they have to do is lower the reimbursements and they make care too expensive. Where do you think is the first place they will go when Obamacare becomes another black hole of money just like SS and Medicare?
    It would be smart for them to pick at Obamacare and expose the stuff most people will not like. I think they really really need to focus on the national debt and Obama's failed spending. Ryan has pretty much run on fiscal responsibility and it would be wise for them to make the economy and government spending their main targets. In that respect I think Ryan will help Romney assuming they can adequately address the "these are two white guys that love the rich and corporate America" bull**** attacks.

    Personally, I love the choice. Ryan really helps Romney with the Tea Party types and with...uh....uh....uh

    As I said, I love the pick. Inspired!

    I think Christie would be a bad choice because both candidates on the ticket would be from the same general part of the country.

    I see that you understand my point and agree with it. It's just the result we disagree about. But, you are clearly not happy with Romney.

    The problem with that is digs...that obamacare has actually gotten more popular since the Scotus decision...
