It’s official, it’s going to be Paul Ryan.

The Romney Veep App made the announcement earlier this morning, and every news source is reporting it. The decision was made on August 1.

The left already is going crazy, but that would have happened regardless of who the Veep nominee was; only the details of the outrage would have differed.

This was a bold choice, far more bold than I expected. My first reaction when I heard the news was one of deep ambivalence, drawn naturally from knowing how the Obama campaign and media would distort Ryan and his budget proposals.

The nation now is faced with a stark choice, economic freedom and solvency or creeping socialism. It’s a choice we are not often willing to put to the electorate in such stark contrasts, but it was the choice long before Ryan was selected.

Ryan puts the national debt front and center in the election, on par with or maybe even ahead of jobs. This is a winner of an issue, it’s what motivated people in 2010, and it will cause huge turnout for Romney-Ryan.  Fear not.

Ryan will now have a national platform like never before to eviscerate Obamanomics and Obamacare (h/t Ace):
