Romney-Ryan 2012

I  received the news at about 6:00 this morning via the "Romney VP" app on my android.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney introduced Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin as his vice presidential running mate on Saturday, turning to the architect of a deeply conservative and intensely controversial long-term budget plan to remake Medicare and cut trillions in federal spending.

In the campaign to come, Republicans will present economic solutions "that are bold, specific and achievable," Romney said as he presented his political partner. "We offer our commitment to create 12 million new jobs and bring better take home pay to middle class families."

Of course, the Obama campaign is ratcheting up their rhetoric of how a Mitt Romney presidency will merely bring more goodies for the wealthy while middle class families continue to suffer. Heck, it's already been thrown out there by the Obama team a "Pro-Obama Super PAC" that Mitt Romney's tenure at Bain Capital resulted in a company closing which caused an employee to lose his health insurance and thus his wife died of cancer. BOOM! Romney killed the guy's wife.

Let's not forget the leftist response to Ryan's budget proposal, a proposal which included thoughtfully addressing entitlements that may well turn the USA in to Greece if left as is. BAM! Paul Ryan is trying to kill Granny.

Given the class warfare and race baiting being put forth by many leftists, the Romney-Ryan ticket offers a veritable buffet for the reelection campaign to demagogue. That is, the GOP ticket consists of two successful white guys. I guess we shouldn't be surprised if we see a campaign ad in the near future which depicts how race relations will go backwards in this country if Romney is elected President.

Oh, and have y'all ever heard the term "Rethuglican?" That's a word thrown out by the left which means a member of the GOP who uses scare tactics and fear mongering to get elected or implement an agenda.

Irony is fun, eh?
