2. The general rule of thumb to picking a veep -- they are supposed to bring something to the table

To help the Presidential candidate win in November.

Ryan doesn't do that at all.
He's exemplifies the tea party extremist attitude of the GOP party.
He's obnoxious.
He's not a consensus builder type person.
He can't negotiate.
He has the attitude of "my way, or the highway".
He doesn't play well with others.
He's a huge liar.
He lies about his Ryan budget plan being a good thing for America.
He's completely out of his element on the national stage.

In effect, he's a male version of Sister Sarah.
He is going to be like an anchor around Romney's neck.
Ayn Rand's stupid economic theories are all about greed.
"I got mine, so you go get yours."
That might appeal to Romney because he is a vulture capitalist.

But 99% of the people in this country don't feel that way.
They have empathy towards the poor, the sick, and the elderly.
So, Ryan didn't bring anything at all to the table to help Romney win in November.

I don't even think Ryan will be able to help Romney win Wisconsin in the fall.
I think Obama will win Wisconsin handily.

3. All good points, Major Hogwash.

I believe that robme is stupid. I wonder then, if he realizes that with his pander to the teabaggers pick of running mate, he is realizing that the republican party eill never be HIS party to actually kead.

At first I thought that ryan may be robme's cheney, but I'm starting to srr \\ee him as more of a Palin(comparison) in that the baggers will hope for a quick robme death or incapacity so that their boy can be the president.

PEACE!

4. They say that this was Mitt's pick...supposedly not one of his campaign staff agreed.

That's how you spell "hubris" or, how to lose the race.
