Well, what were his alternatives?
Well none of this matters to Newt. He is going on to the convention and his adviser thinks something big will happen on the floor to anoint him the nominee (just like it happened with Obama). What is wrong with that man?
Mitt sure has his pick of the field lately. They see a winner.
"Well, what were his alternatives?"Indeed, why is this newsworthy?Next thing 'ya know Rubio and the entire Bush family will endorse mittens ...
The Ryan endorsement probably carries a lot more weight than Rubio's.pm, Newt's was always a vanity run, like Trump's. He can't hand over his delegates because they're not bound to him (he would have had to win 5 states for that), but he'll trade an endorsement and the urging for his delegates to support the Romster in exchange for a speech at the convention.
What do you expect from the guy (Ryan) who presents a budget that totally repudiates the promise to go back to FY2008 levels and instead continues sky-high spending levels, postpones any real improvement until several years down the road, delaying any balance until 2040, and INCREASES the debt by $40 trillion over ten years.That type of economic plan goes quite well with Mitt "let's slow down to 70 mph as we go off the cliff" Romney.Neither Romney nor Beltway Insider Ryan get it.
Before anyone sheepishly says, "Well, Ryan's plan is the best we can do, the best that we can hope to get passed" --If this is the best we can do, we are really, really screwed.
"a lot more weight"hmm, congressional job approval is still 11/12% ie subterranean and Obama will carry WI w/out too much difficulty, whereas Rubio may be a net negative in FL as re: to Reps anti-immigration, anti-Dream act er anti Latino/Hispanic.mittens 24/7 pandering aside, it will be interesting if he picks newby Rubio as v-p.
Indeed, why is this newsworthy?I think it's newsworthy, but kinda Meh. Certainly it would have been newsworthy had Ryan endorsed someone else.
Another poll out today, and Obama is again absolutely pummeling Romney in Wisconsin. But Walker still in dead heat with Dem rivals for gov. Wonder if Obama will take a few swings through Wisconsin for the eventual Dem candidate.
Here is the poll
Er, I should say here is is
All is falling into place. Mitt now has the Hispanic and the Budget Guru too.Now see if Mitt will get that Debate Coach from the Florida Primary back.Just a little authentic personality being shown would be all he needs to win. Please God, don't let Mitt ignore this shortcoming of his acting like the perfect emotionless droid.
With Bender, it's ABR! And that includes Obama.Cheer up Bender! Pope Benedict is pretty old, and perhaps a new career possibility awaits your man Savonarola The Younger.
Yes, let's just blithely dismiss the merits or demerits of Ryan's pathetically weak-tea financial proposals and, instead, focus on personalities.
meritsWhat merits?I don't think it's a budget at all. It's a political device.A real budget would roll back spending and eliminate entire Departments. Ryan prunes around the edges, and then boosts military spending because he doesn't think Generals really know what they need.
Bender said, Before anyone sheepishly says, "Well, Ryan's plan is the best we can do, the best that we can hope to get passed" --If this is the best we can do, we are really, really screwed.Go Bender!....I came on this post to say "Meh," but MadisonMan "kinda" beat me to it.
