The Social Poets: Romney Self-Destructs: Chose Tea Party Favorite Paul Ryan As VP: From Denny: If you thought the Romney campaign could not get any worse with the political gaffes and missteps, now hear this. Yes, Romney just chose ultra conservative - and nationally hated - Rep. Paul Ryan as his VP running mate.
That certainly is a game changer, boys, the wrong one. Well, guess Obama can now count on a second term after all - provided he keeps his political strategists like Axelrod and Plouffe from being his surrogates. They really are just too sleazy for public viewing.
Romney's VP pick certainly increases Obama's chances at a second term, especially with Papa Joe as the ever-endearing Obama VP that is good for the country. VP Joe Biden is the stark contrast of a caring person with a stellar foreign policy knowledge and experience compared to the punk attitude of Ryan. Joe will eat up Ryan in any debates. That stupid decision of the Republican strategists to fire up the conservative base will cost Romney the election as it did for McCain when he chose Sarah Palin.
