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


He can run for both if he wants

What do you think? I like the bold pick.
Seems too bold for Romney, but I guess none of us really know the guy. I'm sure there was some pressure to make the pick, and he wants to please the base. It'll definitely make things harder in Florida.

I think Romney knows he's going to lose.
He must have thought a bold pick was the only way to win. I'm not sure Ryan was the right bold pick, but we'll see. Ryan will have his moment in the sun, and if he doesn't blow it, he could have a future.

I like the Ryan pick. He could have done a lot worse, imv.

It won't do much for latino's or women.

Do you mean you like it as a democrat or in an unbiased way?

This pick tells me Wisconsin is in serious play.

Unbiased. Pawlenty and Portman were death wish picks, imv.

Ryan is a disaster for Romney. He's what the Party wants, not what Romney wants. He's not as embarrassing as Sarah Palin, of course (nobody ever has been or ever will be again), but he's just as valuable to the ticket... as in NOT MUCH.

I just don't see it. There are many people out there who will gladly vote R at the state level, but will never in a million years vote R on the national level.

re: Romney picks Paul Ryan for VP
Paul Ryan is a bad choice. As much as I believe he's correct, he's already been defined as wanting to kill your grandparents by the wacko left.

The casual and vacuous voters will not dare dig beyond the 30 second soundbite.

Obama capitalizes on the "independent" electorate's ignorance and wins a second term, book it.

Romney is kicking off his campaign swing from the deck of the USS Wiscosin tomorrow morning





I knew that three days ago! (That he was beginning his bus tour in Norfolk at the nautical center.) It was all over the campaign website. Something made the campaign make a last-minute decision to do this only hours in advance. If it's NOT Ryan, then it would make sense.

Carl Cameron just said that the Romney team expects to get an 11 point bounce from the veep announcement



This afternoon he said an 11 point bounce from the VP announcement AND the convention, the combination of the two. He said it again two hours later, from BOTH.

He needed to do something to change the narrative. All this blowup with Rush and Coulter were killing him. Not to mention his tax returns.

Sorry Mittens, where are your tax returns? Nothing else will matter if he doesn't show them, imv.

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


Very interesting. At least this pick might suggest Romney is planning to get serious about the budget.

Things I'm looking forward to:
1) Seeing how Romney/Ryan sell their budget to the average, uninformed voters.
2) How ugly Obama's campaign gets in response to ideas to reduce spending
3) Watching Ryan debate Biden

As bad as we might imagine it, It'll be worse. Should make for some very funny, very expensive ads.

They're really gonna have to prep him. Obama will be sweating bullets.

Ryan knows dick about foreign policy. I wouldn't sell Biden short.
