  •  Agreed. Why? Ryan is the perfect dupe & scapegoat (0+ / 0-)

    for the impending loss.  Romney is, if anything, a soulless pragmatist, in fact a brilliant quant.  So he has been able to see the handwriting on the proverbial wall for some time now.  The economy is all he's got and it is quite clear that Obama can't be dislodged on that basis.  
    So Romney's greatest need is not for a running mate who can win the election, because it can't be won.  Romney's greatest need is for a scapegoat upon whom to blame the loss.  God know that the great and glorious Mitt can't be blamed.  Oh, heavens, no.

    Ryan is, on the other hand, a hugely gullible dunce.  Gullible, because anyone who can't see through Ayn Rand is gullible, and a dunce because his economic plan numbers don't exactly foot and tie.  That makes Ryan the perfect dupe and patsy to take the fall for the looming anti-Republican landslide.....An absolutely perfect scapegoat.  He fills Mitt's needs to a T.

    Romney: Wrong on GM. Wrong on bin Laden. Wrong on taxes. Wrong on austerity. Wrong on Medicare. Wrong for America.
