What's Your Take On Paul Ryan as VP Candidate?

The Huffington Post reported that both liberals and conservatives will be “thrilled” with presidential candidate's Mitt Romney’s choice.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney recently decided on a fiscal conservative member of the House of Representatives as his running mate in the 2012 election.

Romney announced he has chosen Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate for the November election Saturday morning. 

He titled the announcement as “Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan: America’s Comeback Team.”

U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan is in his seventh term in Congress representing Wisconsin’s First Congressional District.

The 42-year-old is also a chairman of the House Budget Committee. Last year, he proposed a counter budget titled “Roadmap for America’s Future," which he said would eliminate the federal deficit over a multi-year period.

Democrats and liberals derided the budget, however, saying it focused more on cuts to spending for social programs and less on tax cuts for the wealthy.

The Huffington Post reported that both liberals and conservatives will be “thrilled” with Romney’s choice.

Do you think Mitt Romney made the right choice in choosing Paul Ryan as his running mate in the 2012 presidential race? Share your thoughts in the comments!

The housing debacle was caused by the dems program to extort banks into accepting loans for people who could not afford to pay. Obama has moved to continue down this impossible road. The most frightening thing I have heard from him is, "give me 4 more years to FINISH the job". In 2016 we could have 16% unemployed, owing even more of our future to China, and reap the results of obama's flexibility on our missile defense with the russians giving nothing in return...you really think his color is the issue???

Typical right wing extremist comment. Unemployment was at 7.6% when Bush left is mile high pile of crap for Obama to clean up. Then it obviously went up in the wake of the mess Bush left and Obama has been slowly be getting the rate down. A couple of months ago it was 8.0 and its at 8.3 now with a high in the 10% range a couple of years ago when this country was at its lowest since the great depression. So to tell everyone its going to 16% is another right wing tactic, just like all the lies in the RNC, hoping someone will actually believe some of the lies coming from the right

January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress. At the time: The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77, GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%. the unemployment rate was 4.6% George Bush's Economic policies set a record of 52 straight months of job growth…January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? Banking and financial services, Fannie May and Freddie Mac dumped 5-6 trillion dollars of toxic loans on the economy, while Dodd and Frank were in total denial concerning the pending disaster…
