WISCONSIN, August 11,2012 – It has been confirmed: Paul Ryan (R-Wis) is Mitt Romney’s choice as running mate leaving the question as to whether Ryan will also be the choice of the American people.
Ryan (b. January 29, 1970) is a numbers man who is all about the budget, which is important, and could be the most important reason voters who want a fix for the economy, vote for him.
With his original goal being a career as an economist, he moved over to politics cutting his political baby teeth working for Jack Kemp of New York and Bill Bennett.
As his mentors, Ryan has a reputation for being a blue collar and/or a ‘compassionate conservative,” a political positon that melds conservative values with the needs of societal welfare.
President George Bush has defined his personal views as being that of a “compassionate conservative” and it is a philosophy adapted by British PM David Cameron.
An Irish Catholic with, reportedly, 67 cousins for his three children to play with, Ryan may also smooth over concerns over Romney’s Mormonism. Ryan has raised concern due to his proposed changes to entitlement programs Medicare and Social Security which Ryans says needs to be drastically changed (see video).
With his solid midwestern background, good looks, and economic solutions, Ryan might be the best choice, particularly if an eye is cast toward the 2020 presidential choice.
Ryan has been the House Budget Committee chair where he has developed the long-term budget proposal for the Republican Party. Ryan’s April 2011 plan, The Path to Prosperity, in April 2011 includes controversial changes to Medicare. As a response to the 2013 Obama budget, 2012 Ryan introduced The Path to Prosperity: A Blueprint for American Renewal. (Information compiled from Wiki.com)
Paul Ryan is one of the three co-founders of the Young Guns Program, an electoral recruitment and campaign effort by House Republicans.
In 2005, Ryan said that “The reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand”, and “I grew up reading Ayn Rand and it taught me quite a bit about who I am and what my value systems are, and what my beliefs are. It’s inspired me so much that it’s required reading in my office for all my interns and my staff.”
All things considered, Paul Ryan may be the best choice as he meets the emotional and policy quest of baby boomers disillusioned disillusioned by a worsening economy and the Obama
