If I were building a company from scratch, I'd like someone like Mitt Romney as a chief executive, and someone like Paul Ryan in a senior managerial role. All you need now is good people underneath and you're building a success.
I think this is a good thing. It's an election about big things - as it should be. I believe Obama can only get reelected by hiding from the public and offering constant distractions. Hopefully those distractions are over.
Ryan doesn't fight like I do, he fights like I should. And on the axiom that we vote for people who remind us of ourselves, it should be no surprise that I like the tall thin wonky Irish guy who is known principally for being very intelligent.
My brother and I were kicking this around Friday afternoon. We were both torn. We liked Rubio because he would deliver Florida, but liked Ryan for style and substance. Liberals aren't persuaded by style and substance but conservatives are. And this election could very well be settled on enthusiasm.
All in, I'm encouraged. Now all we have to do is wait for the Obama Ad which explain to us how Ryan was actually the man responsible for the the Salem witch trials, the 100 years war and how he wants to roll the rights of women back to the Pleistocene era.
