    Wondering... Why would a Presumptive Presidential Candidate, whose 8 year campaign has been built around saving the Utah Olympics, now be ruining the London Games by stealing the headlines on the eve of the Opening Ceremony and doubling up on London2012, by now announcing his running mate hours before the Closing Ceremony?
    Is that a friend or foe, of the Olympic ideals?

    Breaking News: Mitt Romney Set To Pick Paul Ryan As VP Running Mate (OBAMA SAYS THANK YOU!!!)

    Romney Hood choices the creator of the Sherwood Forest for the Rich

    Great news for Obama...reelection is set. Two incomparable folks. Where is the business experience Romney is been talking about in the campaign? If Romney is not able to serve after day one, we get someone with zero business experience like Obama before he became president. So now business experience is a smokescreen

    Looks like ol Mitt is getting the Bob Dole treatment. He has no chance, no matter how much people argue. This is going to be a blow out.

    If Romney/Ryan wins this election, you can rest assure there will be a Death Panel waiting for grandma.

    And therefore Ryan could be potentially president?? The dumbness in the GOP knows no boundaries.

    Maybe he will release his tax statements.

  24. The Elephant In The Room

    Questions for Mr. Ryan

    1: Did you provide Mr. Romney with tax returns? If so, how many years worth did you provide? How many did Romney request.

    2.) Mr. Romney said himself, that he want someone ready to step in on Day 1. He also said he prefered someone with gubernatorial, executive experience. You don`t have that. And you said, about yourself, that you needed MORETIME before thinking about a VP/executive branch role. So what makes YOU ready now?

    3.) Should Taxes be lower for the highest income earners, either through regular tax rates, capitals gains tax rates? If so, how can America, realistically have a balanced budget? Should high income people be allowed to pay lower tax rates than working Americans.

    4.) You have NO foriegn policy experience & neither does Mr. Romney. What are your top 3 foriegn policy initiatives for the country and what would you do about each.

    5) Tell us about the role that An Rand has played in your life?

  25. GOP puts "$" in "chri$tian" since 60% of the GOP believes they should not care for those less fortunate!

    Paul passes the "purity test", but his budget plan polls badly among independents and the AARP crowd.

    Not the best 2 groups to alienate if you have your eye on being the next king!

    And good luck with a bagger darlin' on the ticket in the general!

    Great choice from my perspective!
