    Some say you can tell who's going to be VP by how many wiki edits their page is getting... it's almost as if somebody has millions of dollars to hire a lot of lobbyists to go to wiki war!

    That was one of the articles predictions, 2nd most likely one according to their hypothesis.

    lol - if I had guessed ... one of these.

    I would have been the only one to guess.



    The debate will continue as to, is this a good or the best choice.



    I don't see Mr Ryan as a bad choice.

    I don't see Romney as a good choice in the first place, so hopefully his VP pick will be irrelevant.

    I expect Romney to win, so the choice is important. For those who don't like Romney, take heart, he predicted Ryan would be the next President.

    I do not expect Romney to win. His choice of a VP is a non issue for me.

    I'm pretty sure Obama's got that one, but that's probably for another thread.

    I think the Ryan pick was out of weakness. He needed someone to get people to stop talking about him. On the other hand, he'll appeal to the tea baggers but at the price of the more moderate line.

    Obama can't be the next President, he's the current one. And the only way Ryan can be the next one is if Romney loses the current election.

    We can only hope Romney doesn't win.

    I can only ever hope neither of them wins. "Two wings of the same bird of prey"

    I feel like he's just picking an overly conservative party politics consumed individual for VP to offset his own flip flopping status and moderate status. Paul Ryan is a horrible human being, god I hope Romney doesn't win.

    Yeah, but unrealistic. Lesser of evils is what we're forced to choose, lest we allow the greater.

    "Lesser of evils" is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    How do you mean?

    I've voted for the lesser of two evils in the past and it hasn't worked out well for me. This year I'm going to turn things around.

    I now have a reason to vote for Romney.
     
  20. Aug 12, 2012 #19
    You're going to vote for the greater of two evils this time?

    That's pretty strong -- what specifically is so awful about him?
