The Wall Street Journal makes the case for Paul Ryan for Veep

in Uncategorized by

The Wall Street Journal editorial page says Mitt Romney should pick Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate.

“Too risky, goes the Beltway chorus. His selection would make Medicare and the House budget the issue, not the economy. The 42-year-old is too young, too wonky, too, you know, serious. Beneath it all you can hear the murmurs of the ultimate Washington insult–that Mr. Ryan is too dangerous because he thinks politics is about things that matter. That dude really believes in something, and we certainly can’t have that.”

“All of which highly recommend him for the job.”

Rich Lowry: “That the hyper-cautious Romney is seriously considering him counts as one of the biggest surprises of a campaign almost entirely lacking in them. Picking Ryan would represent a Romney revolt against conventional wisdom. And appropriately so — since the conventional wisdom is wrong.”
