Willard Mitt Romney has tapped Paul Ryan to be his running mate in this historic Presidential election. Paul Ryan is the perfect choice for the VP nomination, and the choosing of him commends Willard Mitt Romney’s good judgment.
And not just because he followed the advice I, LibertyAtStake, offered in my April 25th post We’re All Mittens Men Now.
Oh, and don’t forget Alinsky’s Rule 11: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.“ Which leads me to my next specific recommendation … tap Paul Ryan as your VP. He’s way better than any of us at talking about all that fiscal stuff. And Team Leftie will have a much harder time making a straw man mockery of their cartoon version of the “Ryan Plan” if we have the straw man himself out there talking sense back at them. You can be the suit, let Ryan be the smart guy, leave the food fight to conservative new media, and everything will work out just fine for you.While it never hurts to follow my advice, I’m certain Mittens the CEO was able to figure this one out for himself. See, what he has here now is a really good CEO (the suit) and COO (the smart guy) team ready, willing, and able to take the election fight to BHO and His Corrupt Gang of Progressives.
And it will be a fight against the dirtiest fighters in American political history. Team Obama has attempted so far to disqualify Mitt Romney on the specious grounds he is guilty of animal cruelty, schoolyard bullying, felony tax evasion, and the latest – murder. There is simply no low too low for a Leftist in an election, as I’ve amply explained in post after post on this blog.
Take the lying sack ‘o sh*t named Stephanie Cutter, for example. The only bad thing about the Ryan selection is that it pushes her down the news cycle priority - as a prime representative of the ethics-free American Progressive Left.
The problem for Romney is this crap was working, like dirty low ball politics always seem to – at least when not forcefully countered. The evidence was plain as day in the polling data trends. Rasmussen’s daily presidential poll going into this weekend tells you everything you need to know about the power of negative advertising.
I’ll save a fuller examination of why negative advertising works for another time. Suffice to say, for now, every demagogue knows this, and the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama is the most demagogic President in American history. This trend needed to be nipped in the bud.
The choosing of Paul Ryan does exactly that. The mere choosing of the man with the plan has instantly elevated the discussion out of the gutter and on to the issues that really matter: gub’ment spending, tax reform, entitlement reform, and whether the United States of America is to become a bankrupt entitlement state like Greece, or remain the exceptional beacon of liberty and opportunity envisioned by its founders.
Paul Ryan has the chops to beat back the Leftist onslaught of negative demagoguery and bring the debate back to the big ideas: with facts, figures, and a detailed plan to back them up.
So, Mittens, LibertyAtStake commends you for choosing wisely in this historic moment. Paul Ryan is the right man at the right time to dispatch Team Obama’s corrupt gang of hacks, and their lickspittles in the biased liberal media ... in the same way King Arthur was the right man at the Bridge of Death. (The bridge keeper is the media, Lancelot is the Democrat, the others the usual Establishment GOP, and Arthur is Ryan).
So, let’s get it on and have a knock down drag out big ideas election for the nation’s future. In the (R) corner … the team with a detailed plan. In the (D) corner … the corrupt hacks who haven’t even bothered to pass a budget through the Senate for three years running. In 86 days, we shall find out … How Stupid *is* My Republic?
I, LibertyAtStake, will now give the Democrats their first Ryan attack ad – totally free of charge.
So it begins.
Another optimistic take on the nomination from Big Lizards.

Team Leftie flailing around trying to see what attacks will stick. They should go with the Eddie Munster angle, I'm tellin' ya.
