America Needs R & R!
With a presidential win in November, we can now set the stage for 16 years of Republican, and generally conservative, leadership. So this is a very exciting ticket, indeed.
How interesting that Romney turned his back on the mostly PR picks for a running mate, the ones sure to dazzle the media and play to the identity politics of gender, race, and ethnicity. Instead, he solidified his base with a truly conservative choice but made sure that intelligence, maturity, and public presence were not left out of the equation.
In comparing the two contending teams, I would say that R & R look fresh and energized, while O & B look tired and spent. The Romney-Ryan match comes off as a dynamic duo, a solid complement of brains, dedication, and mutual trust, while Barack looks like he’s dragging along old battered baggage with Joe Biden on his ticket.
Oh, I think the conservative base is nice and motivated right about now. So let’s get rockin and rollin.
