Vice President Paul Ryan

The screenshot above from Drudge links to an AP story about Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney having selected Paul Ryan (R-WI) as his running mate. An official announcement is scheduled for Saturday morning at 9AM EST in Virginia. If this is a bit of campaign misdirection, we'll know soon enough.

Update: The selection of Paul Ryan as Romney's running mate was confirmed this morning. They are "America's Comeback Team." Today is the 1200th day that America has operated without a budget. President Obama's budget proposal this year was defeated 414-0 in the House of Representatives and 99-0 in the Senate. Selecting Paul Ryan as his running mate is a clear signal from Romney that he will focus on getting America's fiscal house in order first and foremost.

They will make an outstanding partnership.
And, I like how Romney does not cater to individual groups....Hispanic, Black, Women, yadayada.
