It is Ryan.

Mitt telling the GOP: "You say 'jump,' I say, 'how high?'"

My uninformed mind thought that as well.

edit: I mean I'm not paying as much attention as others and even I thought it was a weird choice.

I have one question: is he one of those fun seeking GOP members who thinks the deficit is the number one issue?

EDIT: The more I read up on him, the more I think he might be my nightmare candidate. He wants to cut health care for the poor and elderly, increase tax cuts on the rich, and increase defense spending, all while making up bullshit lies about everything (accounting for $4.6 trillion in decreased revenue purely by closing tax loopholes???).

What the fuck, Mitt?

Ryan is known best for his budget, which is insane. He is a tea party pick. Hopefully whatever moderate Republicans are left will be scared into voting for the President and Vice-President.

Like I said, his budget is insane.

Are the Republicans trying to lose so the donations will keep rolling in?

it does seem like they want to lose Florida.

i think they've all seen Romney dropping in the polls and Obama gaining -- a Fox News poll had O up by 9 this week -- and that this is intended to be a bit of a "game change" pick as well as something to get the base fired up.

it's a better pick than Palin, at least because Ryan's appeal to the dark side of America is economic, as opposed to Palin, who's appeal was more, erm, "cultural."

But wouldn't the base vote for him no matter what? Will this pick do anything to convince moderate voters that Romney's the guy?

edit: But the base does vote more than the moderates, maybe.

Bill Kristol wanted Ryan.

and Bill Kristol has been shown to have been wrong about everything.

everything.

perhaps Mitt is the sacrifice fly to center field to set Ryan up for 2016?

I love how trying to cut the deficit is "appealing to the dark side". Taxes are too high and should be cut. The only thing I disagree with is increasing military spending.

His entire plan to cut the deficit if to have the middle and lower classes pay for it.
