Quick reaction? YES!
I don’t know if there’s anyone who I would have preferred for Romney’s VP other than Paul Ryan. Here at the Sentry Journal, we were actually hoping to see Paul Ryan run for POTUS. It is encouraging to see Romney pick someone who is from the right (unlike Christie) and someone who will constantly refocus the debate on the economy.
Of course the DNC is already beginning to spin their spins in order to distract from Obama’s economic record. Ryan is going to be attacked like he’s never been attacked before. For the democrats, this is just adding a granny killer to the already wife-killing Romney ticket. For this reason, I feel for Ryan and his family.
If there is someone who is able to rise above the nonsense, however, it is Ryan. He talks numbers like a savant but is able to do it eloquently and with charm, never embellishing in distractions and insults. He’s forceful but not overbearing, he’s willing to challenge the President and he’s equipped to do so.
This brings another interesting element to this election – Wisconsin. Wisconsin is not only a swing state, but a current focal point on some of the basic philosophical differences between conservatives and liberals. No doubt this will play a part in this Presidential election and no doubt that democrats will double down on their liberal philosophies.
Still, we like to get caught up in the game of politics and elections – but this pick is much bigger than that. We absolutely need two business friendly people in the White House leading our country back into economic freedom and prosperity. America NEEDS this in order to save our sinking ship. We need leaders who are focused on releasing the shackles on free enterprise. There is hope to be found in this ticket.
