Funny how the guy hand picked for 2nd in command, is a better candidate than the guy chosen to be the top puppet, for the establishment.

Ahh, it's like 2008 all over again. Republicans just can't help but shoot themselves in the foot nowadays. It's all coming together perfectly, isn't it.

In what world is Sarah Palin a better candidate than John McCain for President of the United States?

No crap. I can't fully trust someone's judgment today if they think Palin is more presidential than McCain.

I encourage you to peruse some of the threads dated around the time of the last election. You'd be surprised. Truly frightening.

I think Ryan is only marginally better than Palin. He's extreme on a number of issues that are not going to fly with the general electorate. He seems like an empty suit to me, although I have to admit he is a lot warmer and more likable than Romney and a lot more articulate than Palin. I definitely don't think he'd be prepared to step into the President's role if needed.

He probably is.
Perfect pick for Romney - Outsourcing the Presidency.

"Extreme" is a cute buzz word on the talking points memo going around for the left.

I am sure the Left will come up with many scary half-truths and distortions to make him look more extreme.

Per, CNN 74% of Americans want a balanced budget...America is extreme and radical...

Yeah but ask them WHAT you want to cut to balance it and you get differences.
