What are your thoughts on Paul Ryan as the VP pick? Are you disappointed Nikki Haley was not chosen?Tina Fey here about sums up my reaction to the Paul Ryan pick. No, I am not upset about Nikki Haley being passed over. She was a third tier choice at best. Mitt Romney is not going to have any problems winning South Carolina. I am quite confident there would have been many unfair comparisons with Sarah Palin if Haley had been chosen. The left is already made efforts to Palinize Ryan, for heaven’s sake, but he is too sharp a cookie for any of that to stick. Scuttlebutt is haley wants to win reelection to governor in 2014, then replace Jim DeMint when he leaves the senate in 2016. For now, that is a plan with which I am satisfied. There is no other conservative candidate like her emerging to replace DeMint. One guesses Andre Bauer, who has a history of choosing offices his daddy cannot always buy for him, might go for it, but Haley is a much better choice.
