Romney’s Choice: A B-12 Shot In The Arm
To get a good feel of the impact of Romney’s VP choice, all you have to do is examine the Romney campaign before Ryan and the Romney campaign since the announcement.
Before the addition of Paul Ryan, Romney was down wallowing in campaign mud slinging with the Obama camp. Obama can not run on his record so he has no other option but to put Romney on the defensive by throwing constant passes loaded with mud and muck.
Since the announcement of Ryan, the Romney campaign has a different feel … definitely on the offensive now, talking about the issues that are important to Americans instead of answering to personal attacks by Obama.
Romney’s choice says a number of things about him as a man and a candidate. First, it is clear he has decided not get out of the mud pit. I hope he never goes back. As a man, it shows he is willing to take a risk. Ryan comes with specifics, not generalities. Americans want specific answers not political soundbites.
I believe Romney has heard the American people who do not want him wallowing in Obama mud. Conservatives are above that. Today, with the addition of Ryan, Romney presents to Americans, a more decisive leader, a candidate who chose a VP that does not beat around the bush. Obama has no plan for America’s economic woes. The Romney/Ryan team comes with a plan. Ryan’s plan is bi-partisan. Obama can’t knock it because he doesn’t have one.
Today, word is getting out that the first VP debate will center on foreign policy. Obama’s foreign policy is yet another record of failure. There will be plenty of good material for Ryan to attack on Obama’s foreign policy actions or lack there of. I almost feel sorry for Joe Biden who has to stand up and attempt to defend it. The debates will be engaging tv.
