This morning, Mitt Romney delivered what TEA party conservatives across the nation have wanted: a solid conservative as his running mate. His selection of Republican Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin to help him recapture the America we yearn to see again is superb.
The attacks from the Left have started already. The red and pink parrots have started calling this a “risky pick.” Nevertheless, make no mistake: Paul Ryan scares the life out of the Left. Immediately after the news broke, Obama Chicago thug David Axelrod tweeted “Who’s calling the shots? The base sends Mitt his marching orders on VP.”
THEY know how this pick will play out; they know Ryan will tear them up by bringing the focus of the campaign back to the economy, which is deadly territory to Barack Obama. When they debate, Ryan will make Joe Biden look like somebody’s crazy uncle from a nursing home.
Since the Democrat cheerleaders in the media won’t write the truth about Paul Ryan, here it is.
As Chairman of the House Budget Committee, Ryan proposed a budget that will set us on a course to balance our national finances out. Ryan is pro-life, pro-family, anti-abortion, pro-real marriage, pro Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, pro-school choice, and a warrior for religious freedoms.
