Mitt Romney has picked Paul Ryan as his running mate. Ryan has energized the ticket. He is a darling of the conservative right and he is a lightening rod to the left. Romney made two opposing groups happy with this pick. When I heard the pick I could not help but think about Tim Pawlenty. During the primaries Pawlenty criticized Romney on the campaign trail, but when given the opportunity to repeat some of his charges in the face of Romney he chose not to, and I knew then Pawlenty coveted that number 2 position, but like Fredo of the Godfather he got passed over for the more attractive, vibrant candidate. Ryan is the pick and he does bring energy to the ticket, but he also brings baggage. What I like about Ryan is he does say what he means and what he intends on doing will hurt the most vulnerable among us, but Ryan does not shy away from it. So for some Ryan is a solution, but for many he is a problem. http://thegrio.com/2012/08/11/what-the-paul-ryan-pick-means-for-obama-and-romney/
Why does Paul Ryan energize the right and the left?
