    Not a lable that gets attached often to GOP candidates.

    He is not only smart, he is learned. I only hope he can let go of that pleasant demeanor of his, against an attack dog, on October 11, 2012. :eusa_whistle:

    I don't know much about the guy - sort of a newcomer on the national stage.

    Seems to be a nice fellow.

    For all his failings, Biden is smarter than obama. Biden is taking a week off to prepare for his debate. He'll undoubtably do better against Ryan than obama did against Romney. But Biden won't win because Biden is still Biden.

    Yes, that is my impression of him, as well. He and Romney are both men of honor and integrity and live to their highest and best use, which is to love their families and to serve their country. I hope we give them this chance on November 6th, 2012.

    "Paul Ryan is a fifth-generation Wisconsin native. Currently serving his 7th term as a Member of Congress, Paul works to address the many important issues affecting Wisconsin residents and serve as an effective advocate for the 1st Congressional District.

    "He is the Chairman of the House Budget Committee, where he works to bring fiscal discipline and accountability to the federal government. He is a senior member of the House Ways and Means Committee, which has jurisdiction over tax policy, Social Security, health care and trade laws."

    Because Ryan is very smart, he runs the risk of getting all bollixed up in statistics and numbers until everyone's eyes glaze over. He's no doubt preparing to overcome that.
