    That "budget" of his needs to be exposed, and I don't think the Democrats will spend enough firepower explaining it to the American public unless Ryan is on the ticket..

    •  I think that is unlikely (5+ / 0-)

      Even if Romney really believes he can carry Wisconsin, and I don't think he does, Ryan has never won statewide there. I don't think he is very popular in Wisconisn overall.

      Romney also knows Ryan as his running mate would generate huge antipathy and controversy over his Medicare proposals. I think he is looking to avoid controversy.
