Stephen Gottlieb: Romney-Ryan Rickshaws

Oct 23, 2012

Both candidates say they want to pull us out of the recession and put people back to work – to create jobs. Jobs, jobs, jobs, the election seems to be about jobs.

Four years ago at this time, my commentary focused on the bizarre selection by Senator John McCain of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate.  I was horrified that McCain would pick such an unbelievably unqualified individual for that position, just to help increase his chances of winning.  Everyone who has either read the book GAME CHANGE or seen the movie of the same name knows what a disaster that was.  (Luckily for us, it was a disaster for the Republicans not the country.) 

Mitt Romney just tossed Medicare front and center into the presidential campaign with the selection of Paul Ryan as his running mate. It is the most unexpected development yet in this political season.

On this edition of Vox Pop, we want your opinion on presumptive Republican vice presidential contender Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan. WAMC's Alan Chartock hosts.
