Mitt Romney goes bold (and risky) with Paul Ryan vice presidential pick

Aug 11, 2012 Full story: Washington Post 2,267

The news that Mitt Romney is expected to name Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as his vice presidential nominee today in Norfolk, Virginia amounts to a decidedly bold stroke for the typical risk-averse GOP presidential candidate, a pick that will almost certainly turn the race into a choice between two competing - and strikingly contrasting - visions for ...

This is the ONLY poll I go by and it shows Romney has gained a lot of ground the last couple weeks but his VP choice is so far one of the most unpopular since Bush Sr picked one. That is going by all Americans not conservatives since conservatives are like liberals and both are tiny minority groups. Neither decide elections. The mainstream voters and Independents decide each election.

This is the only poll you need right here and Obama is only ten points over a win yet his convention goes last and he will gain more back while he could even go lower first.

Never forget, the Electoral College has predicted the President in April of the election year each time in the last one hundred years other than once and this last April it gave the election to Obama.

Here is your political junkie poll that is updated each day.

Have fun with your politics but remember; no matter who wins, they don't care about you and it has little to nothing to do with your life other than in your mind only.

I know, we in the middle of the road who are mainstream which is what America is, get run over by the left and right of center so the more negative ratings I get, the more, I realize, I am in a good area.

I can't argue with white collar thug politicians but keep in mind that Illinois prisons are full of Chicago thug politicians, I do believe Illinois has more than any state. Obama is from Chicago and at the rate he is going he will be rooming with Rod.

Research this:
WWII was last valid war fought for freedom.
All 'alleged wars for freedom' since WWII ended in stalemate or were lost. For what?
Sell that 'war' rhetoric elsewhere.
WAR=money, power, for the wealthy.
our youth are dying for politics NOT freedom.
The only future war, of you want one, should be a second Civil War. Poor and middle class vs. the.01%.
[When Bush went to war with Iraq and Iran - HE WENT THRU CONGRESS for their approval - OBAMA VOTED ON IT - REMEMBER HE WAS A SENATOR. Obama did not ask congress for approval or anything he just went and done it like a DICATOR. We do not need that type of uncontrollable person in the WH.

amen. No accomplishment at all. Let's his daughter fly to Mexico for spring break spending millions of tax payers dollars and 26 To 30 secret service to go with her. Other presidents daughters did not do that. Obamas sure have had fun on our tax money. Right

You should have watched NBC, CBS AND ABC AND CNN - they must know Michelle better than you did and they all took it the same way I did. You heard Michelle giggle but she meant every word she said including to tell Gabby to lie about the bread "it was wheat".
Uh, NBC is the Tonight Show Network. Can you not distinguish joking from yelling and ordering people to do something? Are you really that Paranoid, hungry for any bite of trash on the dems and locked in your Teabagger fog that you cannot separate joking from reality?

I guess you think the terrorist should destroy America before we act. When the terrorist come back a second time I guess you will run off to Canada or better yet Kenya and hide.
You guess? Well you guess wrong, terrorists are individuals not countries! Terrorists are also criminals and are therefore hunted down and brought to justice by special police work from over 120 nations! Hundreds of terrorist suspects are arrested and indicted by authorities all over the globe every year. Why do you keep posting BS about stuff you know nothing about – freak!

Well Rmoney and Ryan don't want you to have an education. They want to Privatize that too. No you cannot go and look at their records. We KNOW we will never see the tax records. The uninformed, misinformed one in the room, apparently is you.
