That my friends is a quote from Congressperson Paul Ryan
. Here is the full quote for context:
Upon taking the stage, Ryan become visibly emotional, wiping his eyes. He blew kisses to the crowd. His first words on the stump were, "Hi, Mom."
Joking that half the crowd were his relatives, Ryan talked up his Midwestern roots and his love for his home state.
"My veins run with cheese, bratwurst, and a little Spotted Cow and some Millers," Ryan said, his voice cracking with emotion. "I even think ice fishing is interesting."
How do you top that on a Monday morning?
I know that many people are probably tired of all the Ryan/Romney talk over the weekend. It appears that Romney is too. He's cancelled a campaign stop
due to exhaustion.
Presumptive Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney will be touring the state of Florida today, but he is no longer visiting Orlando, his campaign announced late Sunday night.
Romney is said to be exhausted after 48 hours of promoting his new vice presidential pick, Paul Ryan, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
It's understandable, considering he is not only the former governor of Massachuseets, but also the former governor of Virginia.... From Boston Globe reporter Matt Viser
@mviser Oops. Paul Ryan, with Romney to his right: "This is a man who, when he was governor of Virginia…"
That's right folks, The next President of the United States introduced the former governor of Virginia as the next President... What the Wha?
Don't tell Mitt that. Matt Viser also tweeted out this gem:
@mviser Matt Romney: "You just introduced him as the next president." Mitt: "No, I didn't." Matt: "Yes, you did." Ann: "Yes, you did." Mitt corrects
Well this choice was Romney's and Romneys alone, as Ben Smith reports over at Buzzfeed
"Everybody was against [Ryan] to start with only Romney for," said one top Republican, who is skeptical of the choice and griped that Romney's top advisors have "been giving Mitt everything he wanted in this campaign."
And Romney's own aides, in conversations with reporters over the last day, have also made clear that the candidate himself, not his advisors, drove the Ryan choice, something they have put in the context of Romney's forceful leadership.
"He made his decision to select Congressman Ryan," advisor Myers said. "It was his decision alone."
Less than 3 days in and this has disaster written all over the place.
