Same with us Massholes. It's actually Elizabeth Warren that is inspiring me to bother with voting this year.

You can all safely delete your Romney VP apps now. It's being widely reported that Rep. Paul Ryan is going to share the ticket with Mitt.

Well, Romney wasn't doing a great job of inspiring the tea party crowd, so there ya go. Doubt he helps Romney gain many undecideds, buy he's more palpable than another Palin & solidifies the base a bit.

On a Mormon-Catholic Republican ticket no less.

A Catholic Republican? I wish I wasn't too lazy to try and dig up all the quotes when JFK was running about how having a catholic in the white house would be a terrible idea since he would answer to the pope.

Election's over. Thanks for making it trivial to set up the out of touch rich v middle class dynamic guys. The only way it would have been easier was if you morons had run a Thurston Howell III/Scrooge McDuck ticket. Ryan is a good 25 second sound byte, but that's literally as deep as it goes.

Ryan, the guy who has been working in government since he was 28, says that Obama is too government centric.

Ryan, the author of the plan to end Medicare as we know it, was supposed to excite the base (which is mostly old white people on Medicare.)

Team Obama just got an early Christmas present.

So Romney's campaign made an app just to announce the VP with so you'd know sooner than anyone not having the app and now the press knows before it's released through the app?

I'm starting to suspect they're just intentionally trying to make themselves look bad by now. I'm half expecting Romney to slip on a banana peel during his next public appearance.

I can only conclude this choice was made in the hope that most libertarians would make the same mistake.

Both sides equally happy about this choice. Look for conservatives to say excited Democrats are really terrified and then remember they said the exact same thing to Democrats about Sarah Palin.

I like the Ryan pick, mostly because he seems like one of the only Republicans in the house who is willing to offer his own ideas instead of just shouting "Obama is a socialist!"

A much better pick than Rob Portman, but not as good as the pipe dream pick of Condeleeza Rice.

Speaking of Condi, this ticket now has NO foreign policy experience or anything to offer on the international stage. Ryan hasn't even served on a remotely international affairs oriented committee while in the House.

Back to my first post in the thread, another national poll (Investor's Business Daily/Christian Science Monitor/TIPP Poll) finds Obama +7. Must be all those wide swings Gbaji tells me about... that all go for a single candidate, it seems.

Out of curiosity, whom would you have picked (assuming you wanted Romney to win)? I've been mulling it over for weeks and I could never decide. Is the field really that thin, or the "base" really that hard to figure?

It's not like they could still point at Obama for sucking at foreign policy stuff anymore anyway, might as well pass it by entirely and hope nobody talks about it, right?
