Great, Kid! Don’t Get Cocky #GiveUsRyan


As Mitt Romney announces his selection of Paul Ryan for his VP candidate, several bloggers are celebrating, especially those who put on a full-court press for Rep. Ryan via the Twitter hashtag #GiveUsRyan.

To the extent that their campaign affected Mr. Romney’s decision, I salute their effort. I believe Mr. Ryan is a wise choice.

It’s one thing to add to the noise in the political echo chamber in the conservative blogosphere. It’s something else to move the result in a national election.

Get busy.

UPDATE—The Other McCain reports on a Romney/Ryan rally in Manassas, Virginia, and gives the impression that Mitt Romney is doing a better job of campaigning than the reporter’s distant cousin did in 2008.

  3. There’s nothing for you to salute. Romney told his staff on Aug. 1 that he’d picked Ryan. Stacy started his hashtag campaign on Aug. 4. You do the math.
