OFA rolled out that “Son of Boss” ad on Thursday. On Saturday morning, Romney announced Ryan as his running mate (it was actually leaked in the dead of night between Friday and Saturday). By the way, where are your tax returns, Mr. Romney?
I Love The Smell of Panic in the Morning: “Man, this tells us a lot about just how worried, weak, meandering, insular and politically inept the Romney campaign is.
“[...] Ryan is a indication of just how unfocused and off-message Romney’s campaign has become. The core Romney pitch was supposed to be that he’s the successful CEO who’s going to run the country the way he ran Bain and the Olympics, and that he showed us what he can do as CEO of Massachusetts. After the Obama campaign and the press got through demolishing those fables, everything about them is tarnished and off-limits. So instead of putting some interesting non-politician captain of industry on the ticket, we’ve get someone who thinks he’s John Galt but who has actually spent his entire adult life in Washington DC either working for politicians or being one.
“[...] If the Romney campaign had opened up their research filing cabinet and pulled out the “No Shit, Sherlock” folder, they’d have realized that people would rather have Medicare than some free market voucher fantasy cooked up at the last Heritage / Cato invitational circle jerk.”
