Pretty epic. The crowd starts to chant Ryan, Ryan, Ryan … and Mitt Romney corrects them and tells them to chant “Romney/Ryan”. This made me cringe, then I experienced a feeling that can only be described as schadenfreude. The Romney campaign has devolved into a huge joke; you know comedians around the world are chomping at the bit to play Mitt Romney’s caricature.
Morning Joe said Paul Ryan was asked to campaign with Romney because of the lack of energy and excitement in Romney’s crowds. The Daily Beast gives some background HERE:
To mark the occasion, the two bounded up on stage to the tune of “The Boys Are Back in Town.” Standing in front of their nearly nose-to-nose campaign planes—and the bus that was to take them around the state, emblazoned with the words “More Jobs, More Take Home Pay”—the duo launched into a stinging indictment of the Obama administration.
“Our choice is do we stay on the same path we are on, the one that Obama put us on, a nation in debt, in doubt and decline, or do we reclaim those founding principles that made us so great in the first place,” Ryan said over cries of “Liar!” at every mention of the president’s name.
When Romney came to the mic, he stopped the crowd from chanting his name.
“Wait a second, listen: Romney—Ryan, Romney—Ryan, Romney—Ryan!” he told the crowd.
