In a little over an hour, Mitt Romney will formally announce, from the deck of the U.S.S. Wisconsin in Norfolk, Virginia, that he has chosen Rep. Paul Ryan as his V.P. choice. I was surprised, and delighted, by this news. I assumed that Mitt would go with the safe choice, Tim Pawlenty. I am happy to be wrong. The selection of Paul Ryan is an excellent one because:
- There is no one better to make the case for courageous leadership to deal with our looming fiscal crisis and preventing our country from turning into Greece.
- This choice demonstrates that the Romney campaign is not only not afraid of the bleating by airheads like Debbie Wasserman Schultz about the "Romney-Ryan budget," they are prepared to take it head on.
- Speaking of the budget, this selection gives the Romney campaign to highlight the fact that the democrat-run Senate hasn't passed a budget in over 1000 days, even though they are legally required to do so.
One more thing: Can you imagine how much fun it's going to be to watch Paul Ryan debate Joe Biden?
Nicely played, Governor. I was starting to think that you were going a little wobbly on us.
