Would kind of liked to seen him as the presidential nominee instead. Of just VP.

So far, I haven't see anything from Romney that impresses me.. Neither foreign nor domestic policy abilities/understanding. But Ryan, for the little I've yet to learn about him, impresses me.

I think a President with real domestic policy understanding is needed.

No problem, I liked Palin more than McCain.

Still eager to vote against Obama again.

As a Wisconsinite I see two "problems" (read that as things I think other people might have issue with)

1. Age: Ryan is 42 years old. Obama was 47 or 48 when he was elected. Roosevelt was almost 43 at the time of his inauguration, Kennedy was just over 43. When people think of great presidents - people generally think "50 +."

When you look at the historical rankings of U.S presidents (not my rankings) and how "great" they are considered age becomes a factor.

Lincoln (52), Washington (57), Jefferson (57 almost 58), Wilson (56), Reagan (nearly 70), Truman (nearly 61)

You will not find a stronger opponent for age = wisdom logic but in mass people are stupid and ignorant..

2. Ryan is not necessarily a household name - he is now.

#2 is critical to me..why? I have said this a thousand times but I am neither a Republican or Democrat, Liberal or Conservative - I vote Issue and results.

Obama is a rock star. Objectively speaking as a tax paying American his policies have been abysmal (although you can blame the former administration as much since its because of a Bush we got an Obama). People in this country are stupid - they vote name recognition.

Ryan isn't a rock star - which is something I as a limited government, free market Libertarian with a few streaks of Anarchism thrown in wants.

Considering the split in this country - you have convince people they want to vote for a Romney/Ryan ticket.

Personally, I'm voting for Romney BECAUSE of his v.p choice. It has nothing to do with being against Obama or for Romney - the fact of the matter is of the four people involved Ryan isn't the lesser of 2 (or in this case 3) evils - he is the best man for the job.

I guess Romney needs somebody elseís help to make him look good to the firearm owners who vote.

I am glad to see Romney knows some of us donít trust him with the 2nd amendment. The RINO should have thought about that one years ago. I guess he thought everybody would forget about it. Wrong!:upeyes:

That might have been one of the good reasons he picked Ryan, but it wasn't the only one, IMO
