Paul Ryan (Wis.) is the Republican nominee for vice president. But beginning this week, voters in Wisconsinís 1st district will also see new TV advertisements aimed at getting him reelected to Congress, the manager of his House campaign has confirmed.Source

Perhaps Ryan knows something.... campaign in trouble from the inside?

Yep. He must know something we don't.

I wonder what he'll do when he loses both races?

Not that I'd pass water on Ryan if he was on fire - well, perhaps. If I could miss the fire and make it look accidental. But I digress - suffice it to say, I have no use for Ryan.

But this quite often done and shouldn't be taken as a sign of anything.

He's hedging his bets. For all his bluster about capitalism, he's never held a serious private sector job since graduating college. His entire resume consists of being a Congressman or working for other politicians. If he should lose both campaigns, I imagine he'll go work for a think tank or teach at a friendly college like Liberty U. Heaven forbid he get a "real job".

It's not unusual. Biden did the same -and won both.

Ryan's odds are looking quite a bit longer.

He's not doing well competing against himself. The Sunday shows are a bit different for him these days. I'm guessing he never imagined his own C-Span videos would be used against him.
