First off….CONGRATS to Congressman Ryan, his lovely wife, and those adorable rug rats!
(I actually have my own pictures of them around here somewhere, but can’t find ‘em right now. )
Second, when they announced Romney was going to make the announcement, finally, there was a lot of speculation going on…..on the news, all over Facebook, and likely Twitter as well. What annoys me is the speculation by the news people. Knock it off! AND….if he’s going to make the announcement at 9:05 eastern, 8:05 my time, why the blazes is it blasted all over the place? I was looking forward to the ‘SURPRISE’! *shakes head* Ok, I’m just weird that way!
Now, what do I think of this pick? Well, to be honest, I and a lot of others, would have LOVED to have seen Allen West as Romney’s running mate, but apparently, Romney had his reasons for not putting him on the short list, and that’s his prerogative. However, I honestly believe Ryan is a brilliant choice!
I know Wisconsin has needed his strong leadership, but then again, this country needs someone who would be ready and able to step into the BIG shoes of POTUS if the need ever arises. Put this mental image in your head…. “President Joe Biden”. *chibber* Talk about nightmare! UGH! Now, imagine a “President Paul Ryan”! Yes… much better, right? Let’s face it, Ryan is going to clean Biden’s clock in the debate! Heh. Yeah, he’s made a couple of mistake votes, and I’m pretty sure he regrets them, but let’s face facts here….he’s human too, and comparing his record to both Obama and Biden’s voting record…he’s darn close to perfect.
I had the privilege of meeting Congressman Ryan on several occasions while living in Wisconsin 10 LONG years. The first was standing in line at the Bush Inaugural Ball in 2005, waiting to claim our coats. I’m ashamed to admit it, but I knew I had seen his face somewhere, I just couldn’t figure out where. We stood there and chatted for a while about nothing in particular. He and his wife were very friendly…. just like ‘real people’! It wasn’t till I got back to my motel room that it his me! Yeah…I’m a little slow! SHADDUP!
Then there were the various political events I ran into them, and I’ll be darned…they were still REAL PEOPLE! He even remembered us meeting in D.C. I doubt if he does now, but that made a HUGE impression on me. And I didn’t even live in his district!
I’ve no doubt I’ll have more to say later but for now…. Yeah…I think I can feel better about voting for Romney now.
