Exciting!!! #RomneyRyan2012 #TCOT – Updated

It is taking a lot longer than usual to come back from the latest flare up of my illness, but seeing good news when I flipped on the TV, shortly after waking up, about Mitt Romney’s VP pick had me smiling for much of the day despite my medical issues.

Here are some of my initial thoughts on the news that Mitt Romney chose Paul Ryan for his running mate, as I watched the live coverage of the announcement and then the Romney and Ryan speeches, I’m including some stuff from the A-C page, Tweets, and also a roundup of  links to awesome posts about #RomneyRyan2012 from other bloggers:

It is finally morning in America again, and as our long national nightmare draws to a close, a glorious new day is dawning.

Two strong, handsome, and smart men, a Mormon and a Catholic, at the top of the ticket. Leftist heads assploding!

#RomneyRyan2012 — Mitt Romney Announces Paul Ryan as Vice Presidential Nominee – American Power:

It’s a great pick. The secular-collectivist left would have gone after any Romney pick with remorseless villainy. The only variation we’d see are the specific smears. With Ryan, get ready for tons more grandma-over-the-cliff style attacks. Get ready for extremist anti-Catholic bigotry and “pro-choice” fearmongering, like NARAL:

At Instapundit, Glenn Reynolds says:

And on the day Ryan was picked, it’s worth pointing out that we’ve gone 1200 days now without a budget.

Be sure to check out the whole Instapost, because there are tons of great links there.

Why Paul Ryan is Tremendous – Ross Kaminsky at The American Spectator

It was remarkable to hear the audience respond when Paul Ryan asked rhetorically “what kind of people do we want to be?” They yelled in near-unison “free!”     RTWT

Paul Ryan’s speech was freaking fantastic.

I like it! This shows that Romney is quite serious about turning things around.

Romney-Ryan 2012 – Legal Insurrection:

The left already is going crazy, but that would have happened regardless of who the Veep nominee was; only the details of the outrage would have differed.    RTWT

Demoralized as Hell: Paul Ryan Edition – DaTechguy’s Blog:

For the left, A Romney pick of Ryan is a gauntlet in their faces. It says he doesn’t buy the polls that he is behind. It means he isn’t afraid of the flack he will get from the MSM. It means that he understands that the GOP house candidates will happily run on the Ryan plan while Democrat after Democrat runs from Obama like the plague. It’s a direct challenge: I’ve shown you my budget now show me yours.

In short Mitt Romney’s pick of Paul Ryan says one thing to every GOP candidate in the field for 2012

“Ride right through them, they’re demoralized as hell”!

Who would have ever thought Mitt Romney would be the guy riding toward the sound of the guns? RTWT


Old & Busted: Weak Whiny & Effeminate. New Hotness: Strong Bold & Handsome. #RomneyRyan2012 #TCOT 


If this doesn’t snag the “women vote” then there is something wrong with our women.

Weak whiny and effeminate are SO yesterday’s news. Real women prefer REAL men!


What’s that strange feeling… it seems so odd, … am I having a stroke? No, that’s not it…, OMG, I think I’m feeling… oh, what is it called? Oh yeah … it’s… OPTIMISM!


God bless America.

Shortly after I published this post late last night, David “The Head Infidel” of Infidels United sent me the link to the following hilarious video:

MOTUS noted that Paul Ryan gets in Obama’s Kitchen, “Woo-hoo!”

Nice Deb put together an awesome roundup with links and videos:

Sorry it took me so long to update this post, but it’s been a rough day on the tick-sick roller coaster, which is also why there aren’t more links in this post – there really isn’t much I can do about it though except to try to ride it out and hope it eases up soon.
