More motivated than ever.

It might have been that way regardless of the Veep pick, but the immediate attempt by the mainstream media and liberal magazines and newspapers to Palinize Paul Ryan brought back bitter memories of the type which motivated me for the 2010 elections.

Whether the pick of Paul Ryan for Veep was a good pick or a bad pick or something in between is irrelevant at this point.

Ryan was the pick.

The left-wing writers and bloggers are all over it, portraying the pick as extremist and a cave to the Tea Party and far right,...

The choice of Paul Ryan, and the reaction, finally got me off the donation sideline.

I just donated to the Romney-Ryan campaign.  And in case you were wondering, maxed out. For the first time in my adult life I was proud to do so.

It’s not just about Romney-Ryan, it’s about who...

Newt Gingrich has been raked over the coals for using the term “right wing social engineering” with regard to Paul Ryan’s Medicare Plan released last spring.  In context, Newt was making the point that the plan as proposed went to far in one fell swoop to pass unless public confidence had been built...

Makes sense.  Very good guy, but didn’t seem to have his heart in it.

Via ABC:

After much speculation and some pressure from fellow Republicans, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin and the House Budget Committee Chairman, says he is NOT running for President.

Almost the entire Democratic Party theme for the 2012 elections at every level is that evil Republicans want to destroy “Medicare as we know it,” whereas Democrats want to save the program by raising taxes on the “rich.”

As Michael Alan  documented here, groups behind the “Mediscare” campaign already have started running advertisements...

Specifically, tell me about Paul Ryan as a presidential candidate, now that there are murmurings that he may jump in.
