|"Give us a moment won't you sweetie? Mommy is earning her place on the ticket."|
Choosing Ryan was "a pretty bold choice," McCain said, just like his pick of Sarah Palin. "I am still proud of my running mate," McCain, R-Az., said on Fox News Sunday. "I am proud of Sarah and her family."
Yeah you keep telling yourself that old man.
Reporter E.J Dionne points out the problem with so-called "bold choices:"
But Romney’s need to make such a bold choice is also a sign of weakness. Candidates confident in their position don’t go for boldness. They make a choice for balance, or to carry a state, or that reinforces their own persona.
THAT I think is the real message that Romney's pick of Ryan sends. He was under incredible assault from the Obama campaign, to the point that he was literally begging them to stop bringing up his ties to Bain Capital.
Picking Ryan is HIS Hail Mary pass, just like picking Sarah Palin was McCain's.
And we all know how well THAT turned out!
