Nice Move

Mitt Romney officially selected Paul Ryan as his running mate, a hard-nosed fiscal conservative with a great combover. Ryan’s bio is pretty impressive:

Name: Paul Davis Ryan (solid name)

College: Miami University in Oxford, Ohio (underrated frat school)

Fraternity: Delta Tau Delta (nationally respectable)

Favorite Hobby: Fly Fishing (TFM)

iPod Playlist: Includes Beethoven and Led Zepplin (middle-aged frat move)

Career Path: Prior to his political career Ryan worked at his grandfather’s construction company. (nepotism. TFM.)

    I can see why he’s a good conservative choice but I doubt he’ll help Romney to swing any on-the-fence voters. We’ll see how it works out, there definitely could have been worse choices.

    I’m actually a little bummed. I was really hoping for a Ryan/Huntsman ticket in 2016. If Romney wins in 2012, we all know that VP’s rarely go on to the White House, and considering it’s unlikely that Romney wins (just my prediction), the next three months will give the Dems plenty of time to try to muddy the record and image of a good future candidate.

    Fiscaly conservative, which is exactly what many people think Romney is lacking, I think he makes a great running mate as the two balance each other out.

      The vast majority of Repubs are voting for Romney no matter what, but Romney would have had a better chance at gaining Independents with a different running mate.
