Another Broadside from Wisconsin

again from Foray, where I explain it a bit more)

That's actually the USS Iowa above. While I could find photos of the USS Wisconsin delivering broadsides, none could match that photo.

Saturday morning, 11 Aug 2012, at a political rally on board the USS Wisconsin (an Iowa class battleship), Mitt Romney announced his choice of Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan as his Vice-Presidential candidate.

In doing so, he has set the economy to be his battleground, choosing a man who has already dared to question The One on on his proposals to the House, and appearing as someone who actually knew what the Hell he was talking about.

By choosing him, Romney has demonstrated that he doesn't give a damn if his number 2 may outshine him in the campaign and that results are what's important to him.

In this, Romney reminds me a lot of another Republican who was not afraid to surround himself with people who were smarter than he was. Reagan got pretty good results that way, and I'm sure that Romney perfectly understands this.

Just contrast this selection with The One's choice of Joe Biden (and any other of his choices for that matter).

Mitt Romney comes across as someone who's been there and done that and has real confidence in himself and his abilities so as not to feel threatened by having smart and capable people around him.

The current occupier of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is a boy who wants to be King wannabe who has been in over his head ever since his first elected position, can barely even speak without his teleprompter and is hardly likely to tolerate anyone around him that might appear more suited for his job than He is.  As that encompasses almost everyone, I think it will be a miracle if Obama makes it to November without a psychotic meltdown of some sort.

I'm feeling better and better about the race, so far.
