Watch the Double "R"'s Run

Mitt Romney has officially tapped Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin as his vice presidential running mate on Saturday, turning to the architect of a conservative and intensely ignored long-term budget plan to remake Medicare and cut trillions in federal spending.

He's 42, he might help Mitt in Wisconsin, and the tea party people and conservative base ought to be fairly happy with the choice.

Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell are probably sighing relief, or in the case of Florida Senator Marco Rubio - Twitting - relief they weren't selected.

Ryan is a bold choice who will energize conservatives but at the same time offer ammunition to an Obama campaign machine that is waging a gutter fight rather than a political campaign.

It's been one filled with lies and innuendo rather than a discussion of the incumbents policy, his future plans for the country and an explanation for his documented dismal record in office.

Why is it that the President and his minions are using this strategy? Because it's their only chance for winning and we can be confident in the fact that this tactic will be ratcheted up as election day approaches!
