Romney goes bold..picks Ryan

14 years ago I saw Paul Ryan for the first time on Cspan. He was being interviewed with the group of new freshmen Congressmen. His life story truly interested me...I wasn't bored. He won in a Democratic district in Wisconsin..for fun as a teenager he balanced federal budgets and reformed them. Yeah, a numbers nerd with an "every man" appeal. The Republicans quickly recognized his talents and rewarded him, bypassing several men with more senority and made him Chairman of the Budget Committee. To tell you the truth, I thought "POTUS" then, but VP will do...for now?

That said, Romney has gone rogue picking the guy that Obama ads depict as "pushing grandma off the cliff." Ryan definitely changes the game. Atlast the important issues of jobs, budget, debt, spending and restraint of the growth of government will monopolize the campaign. The Obama team will be forced to do a lot of re-writes for the teleprompter..petty mud slinging isn't going to cut it with two serious guys on R-side.

Jamming With Romney

Romney swept 5 States in the Tuesday night Primary and celebrated the triumph with a speech that opened his general election campaign against President Obama.

In the meantime, Obama was performing on the Jimmy Fallon show in an effort to upstage his opponents big night. It was cheesy and very unpresidential compared to Romney's inspiring speech.

The Republican National Committee is out with its first explicitly pro-Mitt Romney web ad, which mocks President Obama for "slow jamming" Tuesday on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon."

The video, entitled "A Tale of Two Leaders," intermingles clips of Obama's appearance on the show, in which Fallon calls Obama the "Preezy of the United Steezy" as the president stands in the background, with cuts from Romney's general election kick-off speech the same day.

While the RNC declined to endorse a candidate during the Republican primary, the organization is now poised to coordinate with the Romney campaign on advertising and fundraising.

I was impressed with the speed and cleverness that the RNC answered Obama's jab..if R-candidate is to defeat the Campaigner in Chief, all Republicans will have to rally around R-man.
