I think the republicans can pretty much write those folks off outright. We need to attract some of the folks from the "minority" communities. I think the we can still mostly forget about attracting many blacks (too much racial pride involved and I can't really blame them) but you can't tell me that there was no one out there with a last name like Garza, Ramirez, Silva, Alaniz, or something similar that could have been chosen. Find someone who can present their speeches in fluent Spanish. Don't really care if they are currently well known, and a relative unknown might actually have been a plus. Someone who grew up hard scrabble and can convincingly portray him or herself as regular folks (I know, who really wants Joe average for president?). There are certainly smart, conservative, successful, hispanic businessmen and even legislators out there. I know that it seems shallow and manipulative to use that kind of strategy, but before we can put our ideas into action, we have to be in office. Perhaps Ryan will show something that will help bring the centrists into the fold, but he just looks like more of the same to me.

    Foregoing the ethnic strategy, I have always liked Bobby Jindal, and although I don't think she was interested, I like Rice. Jindal seems to be fiscally responsible, not white, well spoken (once you get around that accent)and very bright. Rice is demonstrably brilliant, talented, a woman, and black.


    I see your points...but...

    It's time to stop apologizing for being a predominately white, christian, conservative leaning nation. All that wishy washy hand wringing is what got us Obama. (re: McCain)

    I like that Romney did

    1. not play the race card

    2. not play the gender card

    3. not play the Ohio or Florida card

    4. not play the media favorite card

    instead he picked someone who will be good for the country, which after all is THE MOST IMPORTANT

    I would like to agree, but what is MOST IMPORTANT at the moment is to take back the Whitehouse and let's face it, he already had your and my votes, he needs to gather up a bunch of folks who either voted Democrat last time or didn't vote at all. Again, how does Ryan help with that?

    I hope Ryan can get his message out that if we stay under Obama in 15 years Medicare will not be here they are going and will be broke. Paul Ryan has a plan Obama doesn't have a clue.

    Politics as usual...we have a choice between a big government, over spending Democrat or we can go the opposite direction and pick a big government, over spending Republican ticket. Those claiming Paul Ryan is a conservative or dislikes wasteful spending, or deficit, etc have never looked at his voting record! It's simple in politics...if Republicans are whining about the over spending, fast government growth, etc it's a clear sign they're not the "party in power" and vice-versus for the Democrats. Both parties are one in the same the only question to ask yourself is; when the country goes of the cliff-want it to be on the left or right side?

    This is an easy vote for us seniors if your over 55 you don' t even have to think about it we are fine. Obamas plan bankrupt SS and medicare in 15 years the money is gone, or Ryans plan to keep it and make sure its available for us, our kids and grandkids. 4 more years of the same or hope and change seems like we just heard this.....

    You should check again. You disagree with my opinion that the teachings of Rand are unchristian, so I'm not surprised by this.
