Paul Ryan it is
Unless you live in a hole, you've heard that Mitt Romney tapped Wisconsin congress-critter Paul Ryan to be his 2012 running mate. Immediately the interwebs lit up with cash flowing into the Romney war chest. The excitement for this pick is presumably because Ryan is popular with the TEA Party. We hadn't gotten energized by Romney's campaign so far, him being a Mass. moderate and all that.
The economy is the main, if not only issue, of this year's election and Romney's pick of Ryan couldn't have been more wise. Ryan has plans to reduce the deficit, cut spending, reform Medicare/Medicaid, and stimulate the economy in general, without bailouts or increased taxes.
Let's hope the move pays off in November.
