Romney taps Paul Ryan as VP

Live blog: Mitt Romney's V.P. announcement

So, Mitt Romney announced today that his running mate will be Rep Paul Ryan from Wisconsin.

Also: [lolitics] Veepstakes

I left out a poll here because the list of potential folks he will choose from is extensive, and my thoughts may not (read: will) be different than your thoughts.

My guess will be Paul Ryan, known for his widely-supported budget(s) within the GOP. He has endorsed Romney, and has attended many of his rallies. Of all endorsers, he would be the most potent choice for VP.

I would have said Marco Rubio, a rising star in the GOP, but he ruled it out. Also Chris Christie would be on the list, but he enjoys being governor of New Jersey too much to give it up.
I was right! Months in advance!

Edit: I forgot the [lolitics] tag. Oh well.

Have no idea who this guy is, but he is a politician so he is automatically an idiot. Carry on lolitics

So I guess our only hope is that people will realize Romney is a catastrophe and vote against him.

Yep, we're boned.

Does that mean Romney plans to resign or be assassinated if he is elected?

Exclamation *BZZZZ* Wrong answer!

Religious nut-job joined by Economic extremist.

Can't wait for the result of that pairing. US politics remains as regressive as ever.

Paul Ryan's new tax plan would mean Romney would only pay 0.86% tax. He likes those those numbers.

Romney is a lunatic. Have you seen how he's insulted some officials in Russia ? This guy is just another warmonger.

Not to mention how he insulted the Palestinians by alluding that their culture is somehow 'inferior' to places such as Israel. If he becomes president the peace process between the two will regress, there is no doubt about it.

if there's one thing the GOP does right, it's doubling-down on insanity.

Ryan is a psychopath.
if people weren't going to vote for Romney before, this pick will not help.

I like Obama because we've had 4 years of nothing really happening aside from a lot of talk and all of our problems are slowly disappearing. We need 4 more years of that.
