For Romney, it's Ryan for VP

Published: Sat, August 11, 2012 @ 7:19 a.m.

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney tapped Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin as his vice presidential running mate for the fall campaign on Saturday, turning to the architect of a conservative and intensely controversial long-term budget plan to remake Medicare and cut trillions in federal spending.

Romney made his announcement to supporters via a phone app.

"Mitt's Choice for VP is Paul Ryan," it said and implored backers to spread the word.

The ticket-mates arranged their first joint appearance later in the morning at a naval museum, first stop of a bus tour through four battleground states in as many days.

Romney and Ryan are kicking off a four-day bus tour that will take them to as many states.

At 42, Ryan is a generation younger than the 65-year-old Romney.

Mitt Flopper's campaign is sinking like the Titanic. Mitt is a wimp and he hasn't paid taxes since God knows when. The guys a LOSER who is NOT qualified to be President according to Newt Gingrich.

You righties are going to lose AGAIN, and after Obama is re-elected, you'll be looking at FOUR YEARS UNTIL HILLARY!!!

Mitt Flopper pays NOTHING in taxes, he is hiding behgind the tax loopholes like the wealthy always do.

The US Coast Guard is reporting a MAJOR shipwreck off the Massachusetts coast.

False alarm, that is merely Mitt Floppers campaighn going the way of the Titanic!

How much longer can the American sinking ship keep going with this socialist in charge. I do believe he is out to destroy this once great nation, and bring us down to the standards of most of the other countries in this world, not to help the other countries to obtain our standard of living. This socialist is creating a permenant class of people beholding to the government and accepting their "pay" check every month for a more less worthless way of life.

Yes George. Obama's only purpose was to become president to purposely destroy this nation and bring us down to the levels of other countries of the world. Good God. Another "tin foil hatter".

By choosing Ryan (a male Sarah Palin), Romney has sealed his fate--the same one that befell McCain.

Acccording to FIXED NOISE NETWORK, we should have all been killed by now by the terrorist organization that Obama was supposed to be a part of.

Obama saved the US from going into a DEPRESSION. If it weren't for the bailout, unemployment would have exceeded 25%. That figure doesn't come from anyone in the Obama administration, but from former Treasury Secretary and Bush apointee Hank Paulson.

FIXED NOISE NETWORK has released their next five years of programming, they're going to run 24 hours a day of crying and saying, "Obama bad. Bwahahah!"

Anyone want to see Obama's Birth Certificate? It's underneath Romney's Tax Returns.

Island Mike As far as I 'm concern its fools like you who helped BO put this great country in the crapper by believing in his change. If he was a man of his word he wouldn't be running again because he has done NOTHING to solve the problems of this great nation His words , not mine "if I can't get unemployment down to 6% I should be a one term prez". But NO now his excuse now is he hasn't had enough time to fix anything. More BS from BO. Let face it Bo is an admitted drug user ( his own words in his own book ) I gues that what you want running this nation. Two peas in a pod, if you think it great .

Yeah let us not forget Ryan's insane views on social security.

Ryan voted in favor of the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act which repealed key provisions of the depression-era Glass–Steagall Act which prevented banks from basically betting against their loans and such (cue financial crisis)

Ryan pushed the Bush administration to propose the privatization of Social Security (Would have been an absolute disaster)

Plus the man is absolutely dead set against a woman's legally protected right of control over their own body!

The guy is a complete wing nut. Not that this influences me in anyway I decided to vote Obama again long before this.

I would be interested to hear how those of you who call yourselves staunch Catholics justify voting for Romney/Ryan when one is a Mormon, and the other one,who calls himself a Catholic, engineered the party's budget plan that was condemned by the U.S. Catholic Bishops and the Nuns on the Bus for not doing enough to help the poor and unfortunate.

Paul Ryan, a man with the medicine this country needs.

Those dependent upon the government will not want to take it but continue to support the socialist policies that are bankrupting this nation.

When I was in Vietnam we were told that we were fighting to stop the spread of Communism but its next of kin is creeping in right before our eyes here at home.

1) Tax cheats: Tim Geithner,Bill Richardson,Tom Daschle either in his administration or tried to be. John Kerry parked his yacht in a neighboring state to avoid taxes.
2) Rich people you libs would of or did vote for: John Kerry( worth twice as much as Romney). Al Gore,John Edwards and John Kennedy's dad's money got him to the White House.
3) It's up to the IRS to catch tax cheats,not Harry Reid. He can be a whistleblower and tip off the IRS.
4) Mitt Flopper? Here's just a few of Pres. Obamas: Guantanamo,gay marraige,cutting the deficit in half within 4 years.
5) Valerie Jarett gave Pres. Obama the OK to pull the trigger on Bin Laden,he didn't have the courage the first couple of months to pull the trigger,Valerie said no.
6) Bailing out and saving GM? He paid his union buddies with our tax money. I'd like to go to Las Vegas with your money,libs. I win,great. I lose(Solyndra),oh well.
7) How's Pres. Obama a miilionaire? Book sales. How's that? All these fund raisers and other events are given Pres. Obama's books to hand out,paid for by the DNC. Thousands of books and millions in royalties.
8) Everybody should pay their fair share? Yes,that would be great if EVERYBODY paid federal taxes.
9) If Biden is still Pres. Obama's VP,which I doubt,Paul Ryan will make him look like the dupe that he is.
10) Other than lies,flip flops and hypocrisy,what qualified Pres. Obama to be presidential timber? His lack of business experience and savvy is very obvious since he can't turn around this mess he inherited. Romney turned around the Olympics and many of the companies Bain invested in. Plus he was a governor. Good job,bad job as governor,still got experience from the job.

Joe/Hubbard and all who think Mittens and this Republican party is for the people: Please provide the answer as to WHY the Ohio SOS is selectively picking certain districts for early voting - those who lean Republican, coincidentally. This is illegal. Husted has said only certain areas - again, those with REPUBLICAN LEANINGS - can vote early. The weekend before is open to only those districts which have gone red in past elections - we need some explanations. Communism at it's ugliest. Hey Joe: You fought for nothing when this is allowed to happen. Go fight for us now.

Island Mike, use your head. If Romney hadn't pd any income taxes, the IRS would be on his A** yesterday. With Chicago Obama, and his minions, Romney would probably be hung by now..

And why do you have to call people names? Can't we have a civilized debate on this message board? The worst I have ever called Obama a name is the above, because of Chicago politics, you know, where dead people vote. Or are you aware, in about the last 25 years 6 Chicago Alderman have served time, along with the late Chicago US Rep Dan Rostenkowski, and four Illinois govenors, the last one of which is Blago. (can't spell it) C'mon man. Oh, the guy that sold Obama his house, in Chicago, Tony Rezko. He's in the slammer now also.

Just because you file a tax return does NOT mean you paid anything in taxes. The repubs are still whining about Obama's birth certificate, funny though they all of a sudden are suffering from a severe case of LOCK JAW when it comes to Romney's tax returns. As for Paul Ryan, he's the Bush disciple that wanted to privatize social security. Great idea with one minor problem. It would have sent the country into a DEPRESSION when the market tanked which it did at the end of George Jr's. Presidency. As for Chicago Alderman, who cares? That has NOTHING to do with Obama.

Larry Craig, Ted Haggard and Mark Foley are all republicans who were caught in gay sex scandals. So according to your theory, that must mean that Mitt and Paul have been involved in gay sex scandals.

Fourteen percent of twenty million is...

Two million eight hundred thousand dollars paid in Federal Tax!!!!

Not a bad sum, no?

Methinks the big mouths here should show how much they paid. Anybody here that paid even a hundred times less is welcome to keep going. The rest of you crybaby Mitt haters should shut up before you prove to all the independents just how vile the Left has become and that they should vote against your man just to spite all this unchecked ugliness. But keep on going if you want. Good way to guarantee your man loses.

No jobs, skyrocketing debt.

Natural born American is a qualification for becoming president and is in the Constitution, while income tax returns are not.
