Paul Ryan rocks

(Quick, before the baby wakes!)

I stand corrected thinking that Romney stands for nothing but political gain.

Romney-Ryan. I’m awed.

I had to laugh while watching the NBC newscast earlier (muted while on the phone) as they breathlessly showed aerial photographs of Ryan’s digs in Wisconsin. Hey NBC folks: it’s hard to vilify a man as an out of touch rich dude when he sleeps in his office. Just sayin’.

Via Legal Insurrection, a few videos to quell the nervousness. If anyone is capable of exposing the lie of the left–that we can keep folks forever on the dole while only taxing “the rich”–it’s Paul Ryan.

  1. It’s a great pick. I just hope Obama’s gutter demogoguery doesn’t work against Ryan’s budget positions.

  2. Admittedly I know very little yet about Mr Ryan, but his apparent comittment to Ayn Rand’s philosophy is concerning. Does this indicate a rejection of the church’s preferential option for the poor? Ive started studying his economic proposal and it seems to create a better atmosphere for those willing and able to work. I’m concerned about those who due to mental or physical limitations can’t.
    Since his views on Medicare are frequently mischaracterized as pushing granny off the cliff, is choosing Ryan as a running mate give fuel to Obama’s false claims that Mitt only cares about his rich buddies?
    Obama is already describing the Romney/Ryan ticket as the end of women’s rights.

    • I looked this up for you, badbmaran, and will try to post it in a bit, but he flirted with Rand in his youth but rejected it in favor of Aquinas:

      I reject her philosophy,” Ryan told the National Review in April. “It’s an atheist philosophy. It reduces human interactions down to mere contracts and it is antithetical to my worldview. If somebody is going to try to paste a person’s view on epistemology to me, then give me Thomas Aquinas. …Don’t give me Ayn Rand.”
