There’s been a lot of talk about Rep. Paul Ryan for vice president. For all the positives that he brings, I’m not so sure Romney will pull the trigger.
Romney is a guy that typically doesn’t go for big and bold. He’s more reserved and likes to play it safe. Ryan would not be a safe pick because he hasn’t been vetted at the national level and his budget plan leaves the Democrats a big opening.
It’s not the Ryan’s not a good pick because he clearly brings plenty to the table. But remember something here: Romney is on the record saying that his number one qualification for VP is someone who can step in and be president if need be. Ryan’s youth and and relative inexperience leaves Romney vulnerable on that question.
Who does The Brody File think it will be? Definitely NOT Harry Reid or Sarah Palin.
The Brody File’s top three guesses: Tim Pawlenty, Bobby Jindal, Rob Portman, Bob McDonnell. I’m thinking Pawlenty.
Mitt Romney has a new campaign ad out where he brings up the subject of religious freedom and goes after President Obama on this topic. Watch below.
I know Romney wants to stick to the economy, which makes sense. But the more he injects faith and politics into the mix, the better his chances will be in the fall with the Teavangelical base of the party.
