Ryan as VP pick continues election year focus on Catholicism

Washington (CNN) - Mitt Romney's selection of Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate promises to cast a spotlight on American Catholicism in an election year when the tradition has already been a major focus.

Ryan, a Catholic who chairs the House Budget Committee, is better known for his outspoken fiscal conservatism than for leading on conservative Catholic social causes like opposing abortion and gay marriage.

    Three stops in VA that's not in my neighborhood nor CAN'Tor's; hmm, I wonder who Romney is trying to appeal to. He already messed up in Norfolk while standing in front of battleship, both Romney and Ryan, and NONE of them ever served in the military. I've traveled north, south, east and west when President Obama visits and that crowd is more welcoming!!
