What a Vice President Paul Ryan means to America

By Tom Quiner

Romney names Paul Ryan as his VP pick!

Wow! Talk about good news.

Mitt Romney named Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate.

Paul Ryan is the anti-Sarah Palin. By that, I mean that he has a long resume despite his relative youth in comparison to Ms. Palin. And he has serious policy wonk credentials.

That bodes well for the remainder of this campaign. So far, this campaign has been remarkably unserious.

Barack Obama has Mitt Romney right where he wants him: talking about everything except the issues that matter.

With Paul Ryan on the team, we can have a serious discussion on one of the most burning issues of the day: what is the road to prosperity?

Barack Obama has demonstrated he hasn’t a clue.

Paul Ryan has written a detailed roadmap to prosperity. He has boldly defended it from the howling mob on the Left. More than defending it, he sells it. He doesn’t back down in the face of a withering assault, including the George Soros funded “Nuns on the Bus Tour.”

Even more, Paul Ryan makes his case with intelligence, civility, and great heart. These traits have not characterized the campaigning of either campaign up to this point.

Quiner’s Diner touted Paul Ryan for VP in an earlier essay, “The Case for Congressman Paul Ryan for V.P.” Go back, re-read it. Watch the video. It makes the economic case for Paul Ryan’s plan.

As a Catholic, I am thrilled with the selection of this 100% pro life Catholic. The Catholic Church is humiliated in the public square on a daily basis by Catholic politicians who virulently oppose their own Church’s beliefs on Life, contraception, and Marriage.

Congressman Paul Ryan is a Catholic politician Catholics can actually be proud of.

Good choice, Mr. Romney. You’ve got my vote.

    i think this is a great choice and highlights the absolute irony (?) of the fact that President Obama has submitted 2 or 3 budgets which received ZERO votes and the democratic controlled senate has not past a budget in 3 years!!
