because it is a very interesting observation. No, of course not every letter matches, but they don't need to. The deception could be occurring at the subconscious level.

Let me explain. Has anyone heard of Edward Bernays? He is the nephew of Sigmund Freud, and is knows as the "Father of Public Relations".

"In the 1920s, working for the American Tobacco Company, he sent a group of young models to march in the New York City parade. He then told the press that a group of women's rights marchers would light "Torches of Freedom". On his signal, the models lit Lucky Strike cigarettes in front of the eager photographers. The New York Times (1 April 1929) printed: "Group of Girls Puff at Cigarettes as a Gesture of 'Freedom'". This helped to break the taboo against women smoking in public." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_L._Bernays)

His crafty public relations (propaganda) technique reached out to women's subconscious. It was even stated that cigarettes, or the freedom of smoking cigarettes in public, represented the male penis (power) during the time that Woman were craving more power during the Progressive Era.

Bottom line is that I wouldn't put it past the propagandists who exist in politics to suggest Paul Ryan be VP, because just like what someone stated, people could confuse Paul Ryan with Ron Paul very easily if they're getting this information from television. The television relaxes people's cognitive awareness, and their are subject to be subconsciously manipulated - hence their propensity towards the two-party system.
