Ryan – Romney roundup

=
  The pick of Paul Ryan?  A Mormon-Catholic ticket to appeal to a bumptiously Protestant voting base? This’ll get interesting. I’m keeping an eye out for any tantrums of the religious right’s this weekend.

   The recent, long Ryan Lizza New Yorker piece was sent to the roundup this week — here it is if you missed it:
 http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2012/08/06/120806fa_fact_lizza?currentPage=all

   And CJR’s overview of it —
 http://www.cjr.org/campaign_desk/what_makes_paul_ryan_tick.php?page=all
  (& TPM  http://2012.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/08/paul-ryan-new-yorker.php?ref=fpnewsfeed)
  
  They used this pull quote:
 To envisage what Republicans would do if they win in November, the person to understand is not necessarily Romney, who has been a policy cipher all his public life. The person to understand is Paul Ryan.

  Lizza is “genuinely surprised” about the pick:

For one thing, Ryan has no significant private-sector experience. Besides summer jobs working at McDonald’s or at his family’s construction company, or waiting tables as a young Washington staffer, Ryan has none of the business-world experience Romney frequently touts as essential for governing. In the run-up to his first campaign for Congress, in 1998, that gap was enough of a concern for Ryan that he briefly became a “marketing consultant” at the family business, an obvious bit of résumé puffing.

But Ryan’s Washington experience is also light, at least for a potential President—which, after all, is the main job description of a Vice-President. Ryan has worked as a think-tank staffer and Congressman, but he’s never been in charge of a large organization, and he has little experience with foreign policy. Given how Sarah Palin was criticized for her lack of such experience, I’m surprised that Romney would pick someone whose ability to immediately step into the top job is open to question.

And the experience that Ryan does have is not exactly what voters are clamoring for at the moment. The bulk of Ryan’s House career coincided with the Presidency of George W. Bush, during which he was a reliable vote for many Bush policies that have not aged well: Medicare Part D; the Iraq War; and the Troubled Asset Relief Program. Ryan told me that voting for all of that spending, which added trillions to the deficit, made him “miserable,” but he’ll need a better explanation in his October debate with Joe Biden.
