NORFOLK, Va. (AP) – Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney introduced Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin as his vice presidential running mate on Saturday, turning to the architect of a deeply conservative and intensely controversial long-term budget plan to remake Medicare and cut trillions in federal spending.In the campaign to come, Republicans will present economic solutions “that are bold, specific and achievable,” Romney said as he presented his political partner. “We offer our commitment to create 12 million new jobs and bring better take home pay to middle class families.”
The two men basked in the cheers of supporters in their made-for-television debut on a ticket hoping to make President Barack Obama’s first term his last.
“I did not make a mistake with this guy,” Romney exulted.
“I am deeply excited and honored to join you as your running mate,” Ryan said in his first words at the podium.” He said that together, Republicans would eliminate the country’s “debt, doubt and despair.”

Romney names Paul Ryan his No. 2
Well, I guess this Paul Ryan pick will really piss off the air heads and MORONS that kept going on and on about a brokered convention and having Newt and Saint Sarah of Palin ride in on white horses and save the day!
I was never a big Romney fan, but he is what he is, he’s all we’ve got, and while I am 100% certain that he is infinitely better qualified than Barack Hussein Obama and will turn the direction that this nation is headed around, I wasn’t going to become too terribly enthusiastic until I saw who he picked to be his VPOTUS candidate. Now I am getting some enthusiasm!
Let’s face the cold hard truth; the GOP screwed up in 2008 when they managed to get John McCain nominated to become POTUS and McCain screwed up even worse than the GOP itself; he picked Sarah Palin to be his running mate.
McCain was a weak candidate at best, he was running against a *rock star* personality, or so some thought, and Palin was an act of desperation, a *glam piece* run in to try and offset the mundane and sometimes repulsive John McCain.
The *fluff and gruff* MAVERICK ticket failed miserably.
Paul Ryan is not fluff! Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are highly capable administrators that know this; money doesn’t grow on trees and it damned sure doesn’t come from a printing press in the bowels of Treasury, not REAL money!
This election cycle just got a lot more interesting; Romney didn’t go for *glam and fluff*,
he chose a a highly competent and capable running mate that brings more to the table on his own than the entire administration of Obama and his minions.
Maybe this time we’re NOT getting the lesser of the evils if we vote for a Romney-Ryan ticket. The more I watch Romney, the more I see and hear, the more I truly respect the man and what he stands for.
There is one indisputable FACT that ALL Conservatives and GOP voters have got to accept, Barack Hussein Obama has got to go in November!
Forget Third Party votes, don’t DARE make the comment that you’re going to *sit this one out*, you are beneath contempt if you say so or do so!
The very fabric of this nation is in shreds, Romney and Ryan won’t be able to fully repair that fabric in one term, the damage that has been done will take quite a while to get over, but this is America, we are strong, we are fighters, we love our nation and we have survived the likes of Jimmy Carter; we will survive the cancer that IS Obama!
For God and Country, and all future generations, let’s take America back!
