If it's Ryan, then Cheney called shots.

Proving once again you don't know what you are talking about, Cheney favored Portman, not Ryan. Nice try.

Gonna get overshadowed by closing ceremonies. Don't know why they don't wait until Monday.

Obama announced Biden on a Saturday as well. This will carry the news on Monday and Tuesday as well. Absolutely zero chance it gets overshadowed by the closing ceremony.

re: Romney picks Paul Ryan for VP


A field reporter went up to Ryans house and knocked on the fricking door just now to ask him about it.

What a bitch. She said all the lights in the house are off, it looks as though they have retired for the night but she knocked anyhow.

Maybe we'll get the honest details of the plan. It's going to add a shitload of debt up front. It will require more debt ceilings raised.

It doesn't balance anything for 25-30 years, I believe.

He's never won a state wide election. He's young. He's a lifelong beltway insider.

He should boost the base.

Cheney said, "I worship the ground Paul Ryan walks on...!"

So I know Cheney likes him.

Oh, so now expressing respect and admiration for someone constitutes "calling the shots"? You're pathetic.

SOURCES: Final names Ryan, Rubio, Pawlenty, Christie, Portman and one unnamed wild card


If they arrive in this, we can assume he chose Chris Christie.

Should be an entertaining couple of months. I wonder how much pressure there was to make this choice?

So people on the West Coast will be sleeping at 6 AM on a Saturday. I don't get the timing at all.

This is definitely a play to the base. Wonder if they've been seeing things in their internals.

There is a chance that this makes the Ryan budget the #1 issue in most House races. This might hurt Republicans.

What do you think? I like the bold pick. I think Romney knows he's going to lose. He's simply trying to help the party. I like Paul Ryan as a leader of the party.

An interesting additional question: What effect will this have on Ryan's own re-election in Wisconsin?

Anyone know whether Wisconsin law allows one to run for VP and House seat at same time? Assuming it does.

Yes he can run for vice president and for reelection at the same time.
