    Listening to Mittens the last two days ... He's got big time buyer's remorse.

    It was pretty unlikely that he could win the election but Paul will lose it for him.

    And, even though they're wearing matching shirts everywhere they go, Mittens knows it.

    Well, this is what I do not like about Ryan.

    He voted for TARP ... I was against TARP but realize that without it things could have been much worse so perhaps that was a necessary evil type thing?

    But his voting record is hardly conservative. He voted yay on the stimuless, medicare part D, ethanol subsidies, the auto bailout. Etcetera. He's voted big gov't so how is he conservative? How is Mittens? They aren't.

    But would true conservatives have won this election? We've gone hard left with this admin ... I don't see how going hard right would have won or is the right thing. Hard either way isn't the answer; middle ground, compromise and striving for balance is what is best for this country.

    R & R may not be as conservative as I'd like but they have both proven that they can lead and are not only willing to work with 'the other side' but have actually done so. I don't want this country 'fundamentally changed', I want it to be exceptional, one of a kind, prosperous and I believe that R & R also share this view.

    Look, Ryan isn't perfect, neither is Romney. Can we establish that fact and move on?
    They are far better than Obama and Biden so they are getting my vote.
