Hoping Mitt has something up his sleeve

When Mitt Romney selected Paul Ryan as his running mate, I have to admit that I allowed myself to get a little excited. Ryan made a name for himself by authoring a budget in Congress that would have addressed our deficit situation in a meaningful way, one that actually specified where much-needed but unpopular cuts need to be made. It never had a chance of passing the Democrat-controlled Senate of course, but the fact that Ryan had put his name on this plan and had then been selected as Romney’s running mate gave me some hope that the Republican ticket would take on the issue of our financial insolvency in a direct and realistic manner.
