Wow. This blogger is surprised.
I thought Rob Portman, U.S. Senator from OH-IO was the frontrunner in the so-called veep sweepstakes. Of course some homerism was in play along with Senator Portman’s solid credentials. But we would have lost him in the senate even though Governor Kasich would have picked a solid replacement.
On the competency scale, Rep. Paul Ryan is another solid addition to Mitt Romney’s sheer business acumen and over-all competence.
Just on competence alone does Romney-Ryan beat Obama-Biden. Can you seriously look at that other side and think “they really know what they are doing”?
When it comes to competency, Romney-Ryan is the USA Basketball team and Obama-Biden are the Nigerian basketball team at the London Olympics.
Of course, the actual election will be a lot closer than that final score.
How about a little taste of what Ryan brings to Team Romney:
Watch Obama’s face as he knows he is being taken to task by Ryan and is losing on the merits.
If this is what Ryan will bring to this campaign the polls will tighten.
