OP/ED: Paul Ryan is No Ron PaulSubmitted by SteveMT on Sat, 08/11/2012 - 17:02
Paul Ryan's economic solutions fall far short of Ron Paul's plan, says 'unimpressed' founder of NH Tea Party Coalition.

There is much abuzz over Mitt Romney's announcement naming Congressman Paul Ryan from Wisconsin as his vice presidential running mate.
But many see it as unimpressive, and even premature and just another indication of a desperate move to distract from the idea that the "presumptive nominee" has in truth, been fighting for his political life.
A nominee has yet to be chosen at the RNC Convention in Tampa later this month. And some say recent attempts by the Romney campaign to rule-break and manipulate the caucuses in order to steal delegates from other candidates is a glaring indication that Romney himself isn't all that confident.
One noted liberty activist even suggested that Romney had chosen an "imitation Ron Paul".
